PTA Reflections Contest - ENTRIES DUE NOVEMBER 4TH!
The theme this year is - “I MATTER BECAUSE…”!
ALL WORKS MUST BE TURNED IN READY TO ADVANCE, FOLLOWING ALL RULES AND FILLING OUT THE ENTRY FORM IN THE LINKS BELOW. This is the main difference from last year. Usually any and all works were accepted and then prepped, but due to COVID, we are attempting to minimize the amount of “touches” your artwork receives.
Entries will be accepted beginning October 28th. In-person students should turn in their pieces to their teacher. VA students should turn in their pieces at the main entrance, Door 1. All entries must be in by November 4th at 3:00pm. All entries must be prepped according to each category's rules and must also be accompanied by a completed entry form.
Please feel free to contact Grant Rebro at email@example.com with any questions, concerns or for advice on prepping a piece of artwork.

Dressing for the Weather
We will not be having students change into boots or snowpants during the school day, as this takes more time, and we will not have students playing in the snow.
Congratulations to the Great Pumpkin Contest Winners!

Thank you for partnering with us in our efforts to keep everyone healthy and safe.
Office/Parent Visitor Procedures
If you do have an item that is urgent and necessary to drop off at school, you will most likely be directed to leave the item in the vesitbule. Parents and visitors that are deemed necessary to enter the office will undergo a symptom screening and temperature check.
If you are called by the health office or need to see the nurse, please wait in the main office area; do not proceed back to the health office. This is for the health and safety of students, staff, and parents.
Lastly, we will not be having parent volunteers and visitors in the building beyond the office this year while we are under the current health guidelines.
Washington truly values the partnerships we have long had with our wonderful parent community. Please understand that these procedures are due to health guidelines; we must follow them in the interest of health and keeping in-person school happening.
