The Wahkiakum School District
Says, "THANK YOU!"

On behalf of the student body, staff and Board of Directors of the Wahkiakum School District, I would like to extend our gratitude to our voters for passing our 4-Year Replacement Enrichment Levy on the February 13, 2018 ballot.

As Ben Franklin said, "An investment in knowledge pays the best interest."  Your vote of confidence and the investment of your hard earned dollars are not taken lightly.

We at your schools will remain committed to providing the highest quality of education possible, where kids have a safe and caring environment in which to learn.

Special gratitude goes out to...

  • The St. James Family Center for allowing us to use their bulk mailing permit to send out our informational flyers about these measures.
  • The Wahkiakum County Education Association for purchasing "Vote Yes" signs.
  • The JA Wendt Elementary PTO for paying for the "Vote Yes" flyers.

... and all of the businesses and community members who were willing to post "Vote Yes" signs. Your outpouring of support has not gone unnoticed!

Appreciatively,
Bob Garrett
Superintendent, Wahkiakum School District

February/2017: State Auditor's Office Reports Favorably on District Fiscal Status

Every three years, the State Auditor audits the District's financial statements and internal controls. As reported in the Accountability Audit Report, "District operations complied with applicable requirements and provided adequate safeguarding of public resources." Similarly, the State Auditor reported favorably in the Financial Statements Audit Report, "The results of our tests disclosed no instances of noncompliance or other matters that are required to be reported under Government Auditing Standards.

Many thanks to all the District staff who continue to maintain our perfect record with the State Auditor's office.

Many Thanks to the Wahkiakum County Commissioners and the County Treasurer

I have said it before, and I am sure I will say it again, but I would just like to repeat, "What a great community in which we live!" On behalf of all of us at Wahkiakum School District, I would like to express our gratitude to the Wahkiakum County Commissioners (Mike Backman, Dan Cothren and Blair Brady) and the Wahkiakum County Treasurer (Tammy Peterson) for their willingness to serve and work cooperatively with the school district.

By allowing a short-term loan in the amount of $500,000 (the collective total of dollars that will be generated over four years due to the successful passage by our voters of $125,000 per year for security and technology improvements), they have helped expedite the fruition of our project; resulting in creating a safer and more technologically advanced learning environment in a very timely manner, which would not have been possible otherwise.

The School Board, staff and students "tip our hats" to Mike, Dan, Blair and Tammy — thanks for being you!

Appreciatively,
Bob Garrett
Superintendent, Wahkiakum School District

The Wahkiakum School District
Says, "THANK YOU!"

On behalf of the student body, staff and board of directors of Wahkiakum School District, I would like to extend our gratitude to our voters for passing our 4-Year Capital Projects Technology and Security Levy.

We realize that it is not an "easy pill to swallow" when being asked to raise taxes, no matter how small the raise. We at your schools will do our very best to ensure that your dollars are used wisely, as we strive to provide our students with a safe and technologically efficient environment in which to learn.

Appreciatively,
Bob Garrett
Superintendent, Wahkiakum School District
