Weekly Announcements


Dear Washington Families,

This week students had the opportunity to enjoy the Native American Projects created by our third graders. They made models of their chosen tribe's community, created slide shows of facts and held an afternoon of presentations for the other classes in the building. Set up in the cafeteria, our third grade presenters practiced their speaking skills and taught their peers about the various Native American tribes of the Midwest Region. Excellent work 3rd graders!

Winter has arrived! Please remember that all students go outside for recess and should be prepared with the proper outdoor gear, including hats and gloves. Students who want to play in the snow must wear boots and snow pants. Those not in appropriate snow gear will be able to play on the blacktop. We have about 430 students at Washington; items labeled with your students first and last name are much more likely to find their way home when lost. Thank you for your help!

Do you have a 3rd, 4th or 5th grader who loves science? Join Washington Elementary's Science Olympiad Team. Practice on your own schedule. Come to our informational meeting and sign up on December 12th at 6:30pm in the Media Center. If you have any questions, please email Mrs Schury at susan.schury@romeok12.org.

A Tip from our Green Team: Did you know markers can be turned into energy? It's true...and we want to help make it happen by recycling markers at Washington!  Please help our efforts by sending any unused/unwanted markers to school.
