  • The Final Principal's Corner- 6/10 - 6/14

    Posted by Jason Cooper on 6/7/2024

    “We all take different paths in life, but no matter where we go, we will take a little of each other everywhere.” -Tim McGraw.

    Serving as Wishram School's Principal has been an incredible honor and privilege. Throughout my tenure, I've had the joy of witnessing our students' remarkable growth and the unwavering dedication of our faculty and staff. Together, we've fostered a nurturing and dynamic educational environment where every child feels valued and supported. I'm immensely proud of the collaborative spirit and sense of community that defines Wishram School, and I look forward to watching the district grow and achieve even more in the future. Cheers to Tye, Brent, and all the crew!

    -The final Principal's Corner of 2024, maybe Mr. Cameron will carry on the tradition. If so, put me on the mailing list. Start pressuring him early;)
    -Thank you, Seniors, for a great year. You worried and stressed us out but also gave us joy, laughter, and memoirs! Best of luck on your journey forward.
    -Thank you to the Wishram community. If not for your support and dedication, we would not be successful.

    A: Do you want me to sign it now or later?

    -Chuck Norris doesn't take a summer break; summer breaks to make time for him!

    -Chuck Norris vs. Tye Churchwell? Well, Chuck Norris doesn't compete; he just declares Tye Churchwell the winner and takes him out for a friendly round of lemonade.

    -Chuck Norris vs. Sarah Hathaway? When they face off, the universe decides it's too much awesomeness in one place and schedules a holiday just to celebrate their epic encounter!  
    Robert Waldinger: What makes a good life? Lessons from the longest study on happiness

    What keeps us happy and healthy as we go through life? If you think it's fame and money, you're not alone – but, according to psychiatrist Robert Waldinger, you're mistaken. As the director of a 75-year-old study on adult development, Waldinger has unprecedented access to data on true happiness and satisfaction. In this talk, he shares three important lessons learned from the study and some practical, old-as-the-hills wisdom on building a fulfilling, long life.
