Parking Lot Safety!

  • In order to keep your child safe while in our parking lot:
  • Please use the crosswalk that is indicated in the parking lot to get from the parked car area to our entrance doors.
  • Always hold your child's hand and do not allow them to proceed in the parking lot without you.
  • DO NOT cross in between busses (unless you are in the indicated crosswalk area).

Thank you for your assistance!

SCHWAN'S Fundraiser!

Do you order from Schwan's home delivery?

Schwan’s makes it very easy for us all to enjoy over 350 delicious food and desserts that they provide. Your food will be delivered to you at your convenience; they even provide a freezer bag for you if you will not be home for the delivery (it will even keep your ice cream cold on a hot summer day). You will need to provide a credit card on your first order, however your card will not be charged until your food is delivered, so if you prefer to pay by another option you may do so at time of delivery.

The cool thing about using Schwan’s is that anyone can use our fundraiser ID number, anywhere in the USA, and we will get the donations! So once you are registered on Schwan’s, please share our fundraiser with all your Facebook, Twitter, email and other friends, family and neighbors! Help Washington’s PTO raise money in order for the PTO to continue to helping pay for field trips and other fun activities.

Remember to enter our fundraiser number when ordering (ID 16704), and we earn 5% of your order for our Washington PTO!

Catalogs are available in the office! If you would like one sent home with your child, please call the office or send a note with your child's teacher.

Thank you!

Please plan to join us!

Tom Pease is a full time children's performer who has been entertaining children and their families since 1982. Tom has an infectious sense of fun and teaches the crowd through movement, sign language, humor, and of course singing.

Tom is scheduled to perform at Washington Early Learning Center on May 26th at 10:00 AM and again at 12:15 PM. Parents and siblings are invited to join us for one of the shows!
