Dear Washington Families,

From the bottom of our hearts we would like to thank you for all the love and appreciation you showed our teachers and staff during Teacher Appreciation Week! You filled our hallways, classrooms and office with flowers, donuts, fruit trays, meals, gift cards, jewelry, lunches, smoothies, painted rocks, candy, supply bags, candles, blankets, lotions, soaps, and the sweetest notes and pictures from students. The look on the face of a child who gives a gift is priceless. Our teachers are definitely leaving for the weekend with huge smiles! A special thank you to our wonderful Washington PTO for all their work in organizing such a great week and for our delicious lunch! It was definitely a week to remember and our hearts are full.

Tuesday, May 11th: PTO Meeting at 6:30pm. All are welcome to join using this virtual meeting link.

May 11th and May 13th: Dr. Robinson sent an email yesterday inviting parents and guardians to review our plans for two important November 2021 ballot proposals. We would appreciate your opinions about each of these proposals.  There are three virtual meeting options (see below) for you to choose from or you can view an on demand recording of the presentation beginning May 12th.

  • May 11th - 10:30 a.m. -or-  6:00 p.m.

  • May 13th - 6:00 p.m.

On the date and time you select, simply go to meet.google.com/tor-ntag-zfj to view the presentation and complete a brief parent survey. After you participate in one of the virtual meetings or view  the on-demand presentation, we will provide you with a link to a special Parent Prioritization Survey.   It is important to view the information as a prerequisite for participation in the survey.  The survey will remain open until Tuesday, May 18th @ 10:00pm. Thanks for your support in this important and exciting initiative!

Late Arrivals: Our day begins at 8:58am. If your child is arriving at school after our welcome crew has left the front walk, you MUST come into the lobby to sign in your child. This information is very important for our front office staff in reconciling attendance for the day. Thank you.

Yearbook Order Forms: Please remember that yearbook orders are due before the end of the school year. Yearbooks will arrive in late summer and will be distributed to students in the Fall. If you prefer to order online, please go to ybpay.lifetouch.com and use the code 5965921.

Wellness Wednesdays: Romeo Community Schools is pleased to offer the last virtual Wellness Wednesday session for families on May 19th from 6:30pm-7:30pm. Virtual access is linked here:  Communicate and Regulate Emotions           

5th Grade Dancers: It is that time of year again for dance team tryouts. All 5th graders are welcome. Tryouts are May 10th and 11th from 6-8pm in the high school gym. An informational flyer, the two forms they will need to have filled out from the MHSAA and information about anyone who needs a virtual try out are attached here. 

Women in Aerospace Learning Opportunity: FIRST in Michigan and the Aerospace Industry Association of Michigan are partnering to bring local families a fantastic lineup of inspirational speakers from NASA and other Michigan Aerospace companies. Participants in this FREE seminar will get a really great feel for what a career in Aerospace looks like.  It so happens that all the speakers are inspirational women, but this is NOT a women's only event.  EVERYONE is invited to attend.  The Women in Aerospace Seminar takes place virtually on Saturday, May 15,  8:45am to 12:00pm.
