Message from our Principal

Hello Bulldog Families,

This is the time of year when we are all reminded that we have many things for which we are thankful. I am taking this opportunity to share with you how thankful I am to be part of the Washington-Caldwell school community. This year has already provided me with multiple examples of how our families support our students, school and community. For that I am very grateful. Thank you!

I hope you have the opportunity to share time with family and friends over the Thanksgiving holiday. Take care, and have a great Thanksgiving.
