A Welcome from Cedarville Elementary

Dr. Bakle 

Recently, I was asked to respond to the theme, Life is a Journey, Not a Destination. Contemplating such a deep statement resulted in quite a bit of reflection (and many revisions), as I tried to sound somewhat eloquent.  The first thing that popped in my head was what Little Red Riding Hood said just before meeting the Big Bad Wolf:“Into the woods and down the dell. The path is straight, I know it well. Into the woods, and who can tell what's waiting on the journey?”

Indeed, life is not simply an ultimate stopping or ending point; not just a destination.  It is a journey that takes us down a path through known, and sometimes unknown, territory.  Sometimes the way is paved for us, and sometimes we have to build a road ourselves to reach a unique opportunity.  There are bridges to be built, relationships to be nurtured.  There are individuals who pass through our lives only briefly, and others who become part of who we are.  We must hold fast to those who travel the road with us; for they truly influence who we become and where we go.  Always reflect and smile upon those whom momentarily traveled our road and then went another direction; as like a gust of wind, they can lead us off course toward wonderful things never imagined.  There are jobs, and there are missions.  There are moments so insanely boring and mundane that we can’t wait to move on, and moments so exquisitely fulfilling that we want to savor them forever.  The path we travel is never alone, and it is always changing just over the horizon.  We will meet a destination someday, so keep enjoying the journey until then.

Our staff aspires to make your child’s journey through Cedarville Elementary memorable; moments which they would savor forever!  As we move forward together, I wish for each of you the most amazing journey you could ever imagine! 


With Highest Regards,


Dr. Brad Bakle
