From the Eagle's Nest!

Dear Families,

Kindergarten information for the 2016-17 school year will be coming home with your child on Monday. Please read this over as it contains important information about Kindergarten, Alliance Charter School, and Kindergarten Readiness (summer school).

Information about the 4K program for the 2016-17 school year will be sent home with current EC students and will be mailed to all other age-eligible families next week.

If you know someone who is interested in the 4K program for next year, please have them check the NJSD website as more information will be posted next week.

Mrs. Nelson

Please mark your calendars!

Upcoming Dates:

Wednesday, January 27: Progress Reports will be sent home for all EC students

Thursday, January 28: Box Tops DUE today

Friday, January 29: NO SCHOOL (Staff Professional Learning Day)

Friday, February 5: Progress Reports will be sent home for all 4K students

We are in need of your HELP!

We are looking for Teacher and Educational Assistant substitutes!

Are you interested in a part-time job either half or full days? I can go over qualifications and the process to be considered, if you are interested.

Please call me, or send me an email, to schedule a brief meeting to discuss further.

Box Tops!

Washington Early Learning Center (including ACI 4K) will be having a Box Top contest beginning January 11th-January 29th.

Please send any Box Tops, that are not expired, to school with your child in a baggie. Please label the baggie with the name of your child’s teacher, and indicate if they are in the AM or PM class.

The class that collects the most Box Tops wins an ice cream sundae party! Ice cream will be provided by the PTO. This is a great opportunity for everyone to help raise money for our school!

Absence Policy

If your child will be absent from school (Washington & ACI students), you will need to call Washington ELC at 751-6990 to inform us of this absence. If you call and need to leave a message, please leave the following information:

  • Child's name
  • Child's teacher
  • Reason for absence

We will record this information in our attendance system, and let your child's teacher know.

If you do not call the office, you should expect a call from us.

Please let us know if you have any specific questions!

Schwan's Cares Fundraiser

Do you, or someone you know, order from Schwan's home delivery?

Schwan’s makes it very easy for us all to enjoy over 350 delicious food and desserts that they provide. Your food will be delivered to you at your convenience; they even provide a freezer bag for you if you will not be home for the delivery (it will even keep your ice cream cold on a hot summer day). You will need to provide a credit card on your first order, however your card will not be charged until your food is delivered, so if you prefer to pay by another option you may do so at time of delivery.

The cool thing about using Schwan’s is that anyone can use our fundraiser ID number, anywhere in the USA, and we will get the donations! So once you are registered on Schwan’s, please share our fundraiser with all your Facebook, Twitter, email and other friends, family and neighbors! Help Washington’s PTO raise money in order for the PTO to continue to help pay for field trips and other fun activities.

Remember to enter our fundraiser number when ordering (ID 24820), and we earn a percentage of your order for our Washington PTO! The first 45 days of our campaign earns us a larger percentage, so please consider ordering early!

Catalogs are available in the office! If you would like one sent home with your child, please call the office or send a note with your child's teacher.

Visitor Policy

We welcome visitors to our school! However, for the safety of all children and staff, we require all visitors to check-in and wear a visitor badge if they are in the building. Please remember that if you are in the building, staff members will be looking for your visitor badge! Thanks for your support in keeping our building SAFE!
