Washington Mini Tigers
Message from the Principal:
I can hardly believe that 2 months have already flown by this school year. Yesterday we were able to celebrate the 112 students who met the I-Ready Challenge of passing at least 30 lessons in September and October. We are already seeing some great growth for many students. Keep reading together at home each school night. As a school, we continue to focus on character development and “leaving everyone better than we found them” each and every day. Please talk with your child and ask them what they are learning in regards to gratitude as well as their latest breathing technique to keep a calm mind.
Our students are working on gratitude for the month of November and I shared with them at lunch yesterday that one of the many things that I am grateful for is our students. We are fortunate to have such caring, empathetic and hard-working students at Washington and this does not go unnoticed. We recently had a guest author/educator, Ellin Keene, at Washington to teach some reading lessons to our students and she said that she did not want to leave. She complimented our students and said they had great manners and were very thoughtful in their responses. I am beyond proud and you should be too. We love our school community and are very grateful for having such supportive families.
Here is to a great November!
Proud to be your principal,
Parents - Please have your children wear warm coats with hoods!
