Welcome Back! We are so happy to see you!
We have had an awesome start to the new school year. Right now, our Washington Schools community is adapting to the challenges we are facing and proving we are stronger together.
Our school nurses are showing an outstanding commitment to our students and community during this pandemic, adapting to new responsibilities to keep our community healthy.
Sodexo custodial and maintenance teams are working tirelessly to keep our buildings as clean and disinfected as possible to help stop the spread of disease. Sodexo Food Service staff have stepped up to make the cafeterias safer.
Our educators are showing innovation and persistence to make sure learning doesn't stop.
School support staff, including instructional assistants, secretaries, librarians, bus drivers and many others make a difference in our schools every day.
Our students have displayed amazing character traits such as citizenship, responsibility, respect, and flexibility as they adapt to new circumstances and grow!
For all this and more, we say thank you. We're grateful to you, our Washington Community Schools family, for rising to the challenge in these unprecedented times. #IAMWashington.

Project Lead the Way Gateway-Medical Detectives. Students play the role of real-life medical detectives as they collect and analyze medical data to diagnose disease. They solve medical mysteries through hands-on projects and labs, measure and interpret vital signs, examine nervous system structure and function, and investigate disease outbreaks.
The High School Careers class has been moved to the Junior High. Students will get one semester each year with 8th graders receiving HS credit. Students will explore their interests through research and self-assessments. They will also learn the soft skills that employers are looking for.
Both Health and Computer Science have been expanded to full-semester classes for both the 7th and 8th-grade years.

Hatchets Have Heart
In Washington Schools, our staff and students display character, passion, integrity, determination, empathy, or exceptional behavior in many different ways. Because of those who go above and beyond to make our schools a great place to work and learn, we are pleased to announce the new Hatchets Have Heart Recognition Program.
Help us acknowledge an extraordinary teacher, student, administrator, instructional assistant, secretary, school nurse, librarian, volunteer, coach, food service worker, custodian, or bus driver by filling out this Nomination Form.
We believe it’s important that each of these receives recognition for the outstanding effort they put into each and every moment they spend with us here at Washington Schools.
Great things are happening in Washington Schools every day! With your help, we can give recognition to those who put so much into our schools and community.
