Hello Washington Families,

A tremendous thank you for making Teacher Appreciation Week so special at Washington. Thank you to the PTO for organizing the week and to our families for taking the time to participate. It was fun to see students arrive each day with treats and tokens of appreciation, and it was heartwarming to see how excited they were to give them to their teachers. It was definitely a "feel good" week at Washington, and our teachers thank you for your efforts to make that happen!

"Sound is RED" STEAM assembly visited Washington today. The assembly encourages creativity, problem solving, and critical thinking. Students were amazed at how a simple two-piece acoustic drum set evolved into an exciting, flashing lights, talking, electronic drum set with computer-generated sounds - all because aspects of science, technology, engineering, arts and math work collaboratively. Thank you to the Romeo Foundation for Excellence for funding this assembly for our Washington students!
