My name is Kayla Buren, and I am your Director of Elementary Student Support. I have the honor and privilege of working with students on healthy peer interactions and how to help them manage their emotions.

At Renton Christian we also hold students to high expectations and accountability through discipling through discipline. My heartbeat is for all students to feel valued, seen, and heard. I am excited to be able to support our school- students, teachers, and staff in this way.

Last year we launched a Christ-centered character development program called Friendzy. This program teaches life skills to our students with the emphasis on building strong, healthy friendships. Peer interaction, emotion regulation, and character development are vital to our students’ success in school and life! This is how students learn to recognize and manage emotions, care about others, make good decisions, behave ethically and responsibly, develop positive relationships, and avoid negative behaviors.

If you would like to learn more about this program, please feel free to email me at
