A message from Officer Laabs

We are asking for your help with reminding your learner to lock all valuables they choose to bring to school at all the times. Every student has a locker and should be using it.

Bikes should be locked in the bike racks during the school day. If your learner is participating in an after school activity, they should be locking all jewelry, cellphones, electronics, money, and anything else they consider valuable in their lockers every time.

Too often items are left unlocked and in the open and then unfortunately they may go missing. At times backpacks are left in the open or things are left in the open during practice in locker rooms, not locked in lockers and then they end up missing.

Using lockers and locking up personal items is the first step in lost items or theft prevention.

SWIRL: Our School Goal

SWIRL is The Washington Middle School Goal this year. We wanted you all to know what we are focusing on this year and what you can expect to hear from your learners. SWIRL stands for Speaking, Writing, Interacting, Reading, and Listening.

Last week we did something very powerful. We asked our students how we are doing. The results are in. Here is a look at the feedback from students. Our students are sharing that they have many opportunities to practice the skills of Speaking Writing Interacting Reading and Listening in most if not all of their classes. These opportunities are the first steps in increasing our abilities to learn and to share our ideas with the world.

Thank you for your support of our students and for recognizing the powerful work that our staff are doing every day in every class for every student. Thank you

We are asking loved ones to remind students of this policy.
