Dear Washington Families,
Finally! The snow has arrived and our students were so happy to play in it on Wednesday. Students must have snow boots and snow pants on to play in the snow so that they stay dry for the rest of the day! Please be sure to send these items in with your child each day. We are not able to call home for dry clothes from snow play so this will be reinforced at recess times. If you are in need of some snow-clothing, please let the office know. If you have some snow-clothing items that your child(ren) has outgrown, we will happily take them off your hands for students who need them. We don’t want anyone to miss the chance to play in the snow!
Please check below for dates and information about upcoming events:
Wed, Feb 1: No School - Professional Development day for staff.
Thurs, Feb 2: Both AM and PM Lego Club will meet as a rescheduled date due to the Snow Day this week.
Fri, Feb 3: NWEA Family Reports will be sent home with students.
The “No Snow, Snowman Contest”: Young Fives through 2nd grader can begin to bring in their snow people next week. These will be on display in the Creativity Cabinet beginning on Feb 2nd. We can’t want to see what our little Bulldogs create! (details here) Thank you to all the 3rd through 5th graders who participated - we have enjoyed your work so much!
Cutie Cuts: With the cost of eggs and bread these days, who couldn’t use a FREE haircut for your child? Cutie Cuts is donating FREE student haircuts on February 20th from 4pm-8pm. All your child has to do is give “Cutie” a hairstyle using the paper that is being sent home with students. Cutie Cuts will select 3 students per grade level for a FREE cut based on their entry. (Additional entry forms here) Please include student first and last name, and grade level on their entry. Entries must be received by Friday, February 10th.

We are still getting more details but currently we can have 5 to a lane. So please start talking to your friends and family and come up with your teams. Lanes will be PRE- ASSIGNED. Each lane must have at least ONE adult to supervise. If the adult does not want to bowl, it is $5 per person for the pizza buffet.
