Concert Season Wrap Up!

Our JK-2nd grade students did an wonderful job on Tuesday at their concert. Our winter band/choir/orchestra concert was awesome on Wednesday also. We have so many talented students at Washington! Thanks again to Ms. Graber for her energy, passion and high expectations with our musicians. We are so lucky to have her and are thankful for her at Washington.

I hope you and your family enjoy a safe and relaxing winter break!

Our last day of school before winter break is next Friday, December 22nd. Students are off the week of December 25th - December 29th and also Monday, January 1st. School will resume on Tuesday, January 2nd.

Cold Weather Reminder

Just a reminder to send your child(ren) with a coat, gloves, hat, snow pants and boots. Please have all items labeled with your child's name including their boots. The only time we have indoor recess is if the temperature or wind chill is below 0 degrees or it is raining outside.

Washington Lost and Found

Please be sure to check the lost and found between now - the end of the school day on Wednesday, January 3rd. Anything left in the lost and found after that time will be taken to Easter Seals as a part of the Tosa Hurricanes (the high school combined swim team) fundraiser. The lost and found is located in the hallway by the gym entrance off of 67th Street.
