Parents and Kids – Save the date! The PTA presents the 2017-2018 Family Art week and Art Auction. Family Art week will showcase much of the art our Washington Students and Art teachers have been working on all year long. Plan to visit the school the evening of Wednesday, April 4th for a fabulous display of art projects, family activities and the show base of classroom art auction pieces. Then save the evening of Saturday, April 7th for an adults only event of silent & live auction items. It is our school’s biggest fundraiser of the year and supports our Washington kids, teachers and staff all year long. Take a look at the attachments for the kids poster contest (a great activity for little hands over the winter break) and ways you and your families can help make this event successful. Thank you in advance for your support!
