Virtue of the Month- Self Regulation
August 28 - September 1
NO SCHOOL SEPTEMBER 1-5
It was a great first full week of school. Thank you everyone for all your patience and support getting the year started. We will continue to work on school wide and classroom procedures this week. Teachers are doing a lot of review these first few weeks. Our teachers are beginning to do our school wide assessment. This will allow us to get to know your children and then see where they are academically. When we get back from Labor day break we will be in full swing of grade level curriculum.
Don't forget to fill out the free and reduce form. If you need a paper copy please call the office and we will send one home. This form helps give our school more money to support our students and if you qualify it helps you save money on breakfast and lunch. More information is below.
PTA still has shirts for sell. They are $15 each. More information about PTA below.
If your child is going to eat breakfast please get them here in enough time for them to eat and get to class by 7:50.
Please make sure you are staying in your car when dropping off and picking up. A teacher can help unload and load your child. You can pull up if you need to help buckle your child. This helps our line move faster and smoother.
All visitors or parents that check their student out early MUST have a state issued ID to scan. Early check outs do count on attendance. Please help us give your child the best education by having them at school everyday (unless they are sick) and on time.

We want your child to be successful in school and that means supporting and encouraging their whole development. While excelling in academic classes is important, children also need skills to take on learning challenges, make good decisions, manage strong emotions, and get along with others.
All students K-8 will receive weekly instruction with Second Step to support their mental health, social and behavioral needs. In addition to classroom instruction, parents and guardians will receive weekly communication regarding what skills are being taught in your child's class that week as well as grade specific resources to reinforce the concepts at home. For more information, parents and guardians are encouraged to visit the Second Step Parents Resource Webpage located
Washington has a wonderful PTA. Our goal is to have a parent for each student sign up for PTA this year. Thank you to everyone that came to the PTA meeting. We appreciate all the support and help.
