Washington Elementary

It's Here- the First TK Day!!!

Welcome to the School Year!

Teacher Assignments Info

  • IF you were not available to stop in on Friday to submit your completed registration, please be sure you have PRINTED and SIGNED your online registration CONFIRMATION-- it must be turned in to have your child attend class!
  • As a TK family, you already know your classroom and teacher assignment-- Melanie LaGory, Room 15

Where To Start...

  • TK will line up in front of their classroom, Room 15, at 8:45AM
Just so you know what is happening on the school site as you arrive--8:30 AM "The Bell Rings!" All other students will be lining up in front of the "portables" (southwest side of yard).

There is minimal supervision in the morning. This is not an active playtime. Please have your child(ren) line up and wait for the start of the school day.The play structures should not be in use at this time. Faculty/Staff will be with the K-5 students and already have begun their work for the day.

More to Come from Ms. LaGory

As we get rolling, I will be getting more info details from Ms. La Gory and should be able to help you answer questions and concerns as they come up.

Remember she is always willing to answer your questions-- just ask!

What to Bring...

  1. Please DO pack a healthy snack for your child(ren). They will have a chance to eat a little something at recess each morning. Make it something that they can easily manage on their own (easy open wrapping, containers with which they are familiar, etc.).
  • General Tip: Label ALL clothing and personal items with a permanent marker. This will become more important as the year progresses. : )
  • Good Idea: No toys are to be brought to school. This can be disruptive and problematic in the classroom setting. Thank you.

Where Do I go Next?

Parent Welcome Coffee

On Tuesday, Sep 1, after dropping off your child on the first day of school, stop by the MPR (Multi-Purpose Room) for coffee, tea, and some goodies, and get to know your fellow Wildcat parents!

End of the Day

12:15 PM - TK Dismissal at Room 15
Ms. LaGory will meet you at the classroom door for pick up--remember:
  • Teachers need to see the parent/caregiver before letting a student leave.
  • Please let the teachers know your Child's Name at Pickup until they get to know everyone.

Be Part of it All!

Being part of a vibrant and thriving school community means families pitch in and do what they can to help make it all happen for the kids! Please take a few moments to consider ways in which you might be able to contribute your energy and/or expertise. Here is a link to the main volunteer sign ups.

Being a Room Rep is a great help to the teachers and other families in your child's class. Consider signing up for some classroom specific help
TK Room Reps:

Other grade level reps are listed on the Volunteer page if you are interested in seeing who the contact is for a specific classroom.

Stay Connected!

You will soon be receiving information from your room reps and the PTA via an interface called MemberHub. MemberHub is a private online communication tool that helps to share important information with the Washington WildCat families. You've temporarily been added to MemberHub while the school waits for the updated information and preferences you provided during online registration. MemberHub will be updated with this information during the third week of school. You will be given further instrcutions about how this all works at that time.

Most everything you need to know about what's going on at Washington will be emailed to you through the Roar on Thursdays. We try to repeat information at most once, making it essential to skim the Roar on a weekly basis. You'll also receive The Week Ahead on Sundays, which is a calendar listing of what's happening the next week at Washington.

You will also receive occasional communications from your Room Representative and classroom teacher. More info to follow soon… just heads up when it arrives so you know what it is all about. J

Once you have access, you will also be able to use this as an online directory to contact other Washington Families. This year there will also be a Mobile App available.
Keep your eyes open...

Office is Open!

You can access the building through the front door at 801 Howard Ave.
