Welcome from the Superintendent

Image of a Pen: From the Desk of Bob Garrett, Superintendent, Wahkiakum School District Hi, and welcome to the website for Wahkiakum School District. We are located in the picturesque community of Cathlamet, Washington, and serve students in Cathlamet, Puget Island and Skamokawa — all in the eastern half of Wahkiakum County!

I am now in my 24th year as the Superintendent. In 1994, my wife and I brought our two youngest sons to live, learn, work, and play in this awesome community. It was undoubtedly one of the best decisions we have ever made!

Each year change is upon us, as we strive to continually improve and stay current with the latest educational strategies — providing our students with a relevant and dynamic curriculum, as they prepare to become successful, contributing members of society. Fortunately, some things never change. I continue to be in awe of the great community in which we live, where the townspeople actively support the notion that "it takes an entire village to raise a child."

As we move forward committed to working together to make positive differences in the lives of children, I am reminded of the lessons we can learn from a flock of flying geese. Angeles Arrien has shared the following insights regarding geese flying in a V-formation:

  • As each goose flaps it wings, it creates an uplift for others behind it. There is 71 percent more flying range in V-formation than in flying alone. Lesson: People like us, who share a common direction and sense of purpose, get there more quickly.
  • Whenever a goose flies out of formation, it feels drag and tries to get back into position. Lesson: It's easier to do something together than alone.
  • When the lead goose gets tired, it rotates back into formation and another goose flies at the head. Lesson: The "leader" does not have to do all of the leading all of the time. Each of us has skills and talents that are valuable; and we should be willing to lead when needed.
  • The geese flying in the rear of the formation honk to encourage those up front to keep up their speed. Lesson: Encouragement is motivating. We need to make sure our "honking" is encouraging, not discouraging.
  • When a goose gets sick or wounded and falls, two geese fall out and stay with it until it revives or passes on. Then they catch up or join another flock. Lesson: We may all need help from time to time. Let us stand by one another in difficult times as well as good ones.

May this school year be one in which we fly as geese. We will arrive at our destination in an easier and quicker fashion, leading when we are needed, and encouraging and supporting one another. And the entire village, particularly the children, will reap the benefits!
 

Sincerely,
Bob Garrett
Superintendent, Wahkiakum School District
