Principal's Message

Happy January! A few reminders so you stay in the know:


~ SAFETY: Student safety is always priority #1. We are noticing that during drop-off and pick-up times, parents are not always helping students get safely onto school grounds. During these very busy times of the day, please, please, please take the time to get out of your car and help your child get safely onto the school grounds.


~ NO SCHOOL on Monday, January 23 as this is a professional development day for teachers.


~ Climb to Feed Kids: Please help support the Washington Wildcat team as we raise funds for the Backpack Food Program. A Washington team will be climbing the tubing hill at Mount Kato, and we need your help in raising funds. Use the link below, or the QR Code, to donate. AND...come cheer on the Washington team on Sunday, January 22nd. The team climbs at 10:30.
