There is a goose that lives on the school’s roof. It comes every year to lay eggs and hatch its goslings.

The goose has been coming here for five years now and has made its nest above the music room. People can view the goose by going past Mr.Mitchell’s room to the upstairs hall window by the north side of the building or from the north window of the Room 220 computer labs.

People might wonder if the babies are safe that high up in the air. According to the Washington State Department of Natural Resources website, when baby geese are born, they can fall  off a two-story building and gain balance. Students and teachers have wondered why the goose returns to this spot every year.

“What’s so important about that specific spot to the goose?” said eighth grader Pedro Yazzie.

It’s hard to say why the goose chooses the roof.

“Geese choose spots that are high and have open spaces so that goose can see predators coming,” said AmeriCorps mentor Sierra Telck, who sits near the computer lab window.

Telck said that the goose comes back every 30 minutes daily.

    Geeses can be scary sometimes. They can see into your soul.

    Matt, thank you for writing this story! The information you shared was very insightful. I’ve been worried about that goose and her choice for a “nest,” but the information you researched and provided here has helped me feel more at ease. I can’t wait to see the goslings when they hatch. Will you or someone else keep taking pictures??? I’d love to see the goslings.

    this goose actually uses its brain to come back each year so geese can remember a designation for years just like us and our house
