Super Readers in Mrs. Laue's and Mrs. Kuhlow's Kindergarten Classrooms!
Kindergarten students in Mrs. Laue's and Mrs. Kuhlow's classrooms have been practicing "pointer power". Pointer Power is one of the many different "powers" K students have when learning how to read.
This picture shows book 2 from LC Reading Units of Study. Other powers to come in Kindergarten are "picture power", "sight word power", and "word pattern power". Kindergartners are excited to become "super readers"
The students have to look out for "The Distractor". He wants to distract them and stop Kindergartners from reading. His efforts will be in vain!
New Drop-off Time in the AM
- Do not drop-off students prior to 7:40

- In the event of inclement weather, you may want to have students stay in the vehicle until 7:50 as they will not enter before.
- When you do drop-off, do not stay parked along Fonda, rather exit the area allowing others to drop-off as well.
- Do not drop-off students in the middle of Fonda St. Vehicles should pull alongside the curb before dropping off.

Music March Madness!!!
March Music Madness
During a typical school year, Washington celebrates March and Music in our Schools month with a huge spring performance put on by our 4th and 5th graders- everything from barnyard dances to pirates! This year, Washington was unable to put on any performances but that didn't stop us from connecting to music in a different way. Staff members submitted their favorite song to compete in a March Music Madness bracket. Every day, students in music class vote on their favorite songs, build graphs to analyze trends, compare different genres of music and predict which songs will continue on. Even the staff gets in on the voting. On Friday before spring break, the entire school will listen to the final four and then a champion will be crowned! This has been a very unique way for our students at Washington to celebrate Music in Our Schools month while experiencing music in a fun, COVID-friendly way.
Happy Spring Break!
Friday, April 2 - No School
