Superintendent's Message

July 14, 2022

Dear Paterson Families,

I am excited to introduce myself to you. My name is Joe West and I am your new Superintendent/Principal at Paterson School District. It is a privilege to be selected for this position and to be able to serve the Paterson community, families and especially the students and staff this upcoming school year of 2022-2023. My hope is to establish great relationships with the families and staff of Paterson, so I can serve you well for years to come. I have been in education for seventeen years and have served in a variety of roles throughout those years. Most recently I worked as principal for Artz-Fox Elementary in Mabton, Washington. My oldest son just graduated from Paterson in the Spring of 2022, while my oldest daughter still attends Paterson as a 7th grader. I also have a younger son and daughter. With my previous experiences in special education, counseling and administration and my current knowledge and understanding of Paterson I am ready to continue the great work being done here and am so blessed to come work in an environment that is aligned to my personal and professional ideals and values...
