Staff Changes for Next Year

Mrs. Colleen Miles, PE teacher at Washington and Whittier, will be retiring at the end of this school year. Mrs. Craig will be working with the principal of Whittier on securing a replacement for next school year. We wish Mrs. Miles a very happy retirement!

Mrs. Beth Miller, 2nd grade teacher, will be moving into a full-time special education resource position next school year. This will give Mrs. Miller the opportunity to work with Washington students in all grades and to utilize her LBS1 special education licensure. The special education team welcomes her on board! Mrs. Craig will share information about a teacher to replace Mrs. Miller in 2nd grade later this summer.

Thank You, Student Excellence Foundation!

Bridle Lane

Please note that both the north and south sides of Bridle Lane are no parking zones from 8:00am until 4:00pm. The Wheaton Police Department acknowledges that parents need to line up for student drop-off and pick-up, but this area still remains a no parking area.

Please do not start lining up in your car until 8:45am for school arrival and 3:15pm for school dismissal. Vehicles in this area prior to these times or vehicles that are left unoccupied are subject to citation.

In addition, please take care to leave driveways accessible when you are in the car line. Also, there should not be any double-parking.

From the Health Office

Box Tops for Education & Coke Rewards

PTA collects both Box Tops and Coke Rewards; both are easy ways you can help raise money for Washington. Mrs. Mandie Porick coordinates both programs. Box tops can be sent to school in your child’s take home folder placed in an envelope labeled Box Tops or in a ziplock. Coke Rewards can be sent in this way as well.
