Thanksgiving is one my most favorite times of the year for a variety of reasons, but mainly because it is such a good reminder to take time and give thanks for those closest in my life. I am thankful for the opportunity to be in Wauwatosa and at Washington. I am grateful to work with such dedicated educators and wonderful students and families. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving full of family, friends and giving thanks!

-Mr. Russell

Thank you!

Timby Squad would like to thank the Washington School Community for their contributions to the Pennies for Patients drive for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. This year we raised $1329.29! Way to go Timberwolves!

PTA Updates

Mark your calendars for our 2nd Annual parents night out at Ray's on North Avenue on December 14th. Come mingle and enjoy live music in the upstairs lounge. Percentage of ALL sales upstairs AND downstairs will come back to the school if you mention Washington Elementary.

City Tin orders are coming home with students today.

We're still looking for a co-chair to help the 5th grade Timby Squad run their first Talent Show. It's a two evening commitment that would have you guide students in auditioning acts, arranging performances and publicizing the event. Please contact Denise at denisevancuyk@gmail.com if you're interested.

There are still some small and big ways to donate time, talent, energy or items to our Washington community. Please take time to fill out the survey here as it looks to future events, activities and ways for each of us to contribute.
