- About Us
At least once a year in an Oak Harbor classroom, students witness one of the most profound acts of selflessness a person can make — the reenlistment of a Navy parent. This illustrates perfectly the vital connection between Oak Harbor schools and our Navy community. April is the Month of the Military Child around our nation. However, here in Oak Harbor, we focus on the needs of our military students every day. In fact, over half of our students are dependents of active-duty parents, and Oak Harbor Schools have been working with the unique needs of Navy families for more than 70 years.
Community Events, April 2014
Evidently. the running gods are not superstitious. The 13th running of the Whidbey Island Marathon on the 13th of April attracted more than 3,000 registrations, nearly double the number from 2013. This year’s event featured a marathon, half marathon, 10K, 5K and children’s 1K.
Congratulations to the City of Oak Harbor on a marathon well done. The 13th annual event drew more than 3,000 people to run along Whidbey Island’s scenic roads. And with many of those 3,000 participants came family and friends to cheer them on. That’s a pretty hefty number of visitors.
Sometimes it takes a calamity to move anything through Congress. In the case of the Green Mountain Lookout, it took a tragedy for federal lawmakers to keep an iconic structure exactly where it is.
“Look deep into nature and then you will understand everything better,” said Albert Einstein, a bright fellow. Congratulations and thank you for your April 7 supplement, “Whidbey Green Guide.” It’s a helpful gift to all who enjoy the wonders of this island. May we all drink deeply of its offerings in this Earth and Ocean month.
