Letter From Ms. Brito

Dear Washington Families,

I hope everyone has been enjoying a safe and relaxing break and soaking up these last days of summer! We are so excited to welcome our students and staff back to school in a few weeks!

Summer construction is right on pace, and we are eagerly anticipating the implementation of full-day kindergarten this fall. To welcome our new and kindergarten students, we will host a new family orientation on Wednesday, August 17th at 6:00 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room.

Additionally, please be on the lookout for the release of class placements on Tuesday, August 16th. Please log into your PowerSchool account on this date to learn who your child's teacher will be.

Finally, we hope to see you on Tuesday, August 23rd from 8:15-9:00 for our Washington School Supply Drop-Off. During this time, you will be able to bring in any school supplies and meet your child's homeroom teacher. Please know that these meetings will be very brief, and classrooms may not be at 100% quite yet! The purpose of this event is to bring any bulky items and relieve some first-day jitters students may have by meeting the teachers before the first day. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support with this!

See below for additional important updates and please be on the lookout for additional information as we get closer to the official start of school.

Have a wonderful weekend, and stay cool!

Warm Regards,

Class Placements Announced in PowerSchool

Class placements will be released to all District 64 families on Tuesday, August 16th. Please log into your PowerSchool account on this date to learn who your child's teacher is for the upcoming school year.

Washington teachers and administration collaborated on the creation of class lists for the upcoming school year. Please know that much thought and planning went into the creation of homerooms, taking into consideration students' social-emotional, behavioral and academic learning needs. Because of this, we are unable to honor special requests or changes at this time. Thank you for your understanding!

Teacher Greet/School Supply Drop Off

On Tuesday, August 23rd, we will host a Teacher Greet and School Supply Drop off for Washington families. From 8:15-9:00, students and parents will have the opportunity to briefly meet their new teachers and drop off any school supplies or bulky items for the first day. Please note that teachers may still be working on setting up classrooms and prefer to visit with you in the hallways at this time. We thank you for your patience and understanding in keeping these visits brief. If you would like to speak with your child's teacher in further detail, we encourage you to contact them directly to set up a meeting. Please also save the date for our Washington Parent Night on Thursday, September 8th at 6:00 p.m.
