Washington Weekly

September 13 - September 17

Welcome Back!

We've had a wonderful start to the school year! Our classrooms are busy with students getting to know each other and their teachers, our cafeteria, picnic areas and fields are once again being used for lunch and recess and Washington School is growing as a community.

A special "Thank You" to our fantastic custodial staff, Mr. Larry, Ms. Yvonne & Mr. Patrick, for helping to make our school sparkle again after last week's hurricane. We hope all of you (and your homes) weathered the storm but if you are in need of support, please let us know.

This Week at Washington

September 13- Rotation begins

Students will have Science, Social Studies or BUILDER with one of the teachers on their pack each day during their rotation period.

September 14- General PTO Meeting, 11am

September 16- No School, Yom Kippur

Later this Month

September 21- Picture Day & Virtual Back-to-School Night on Tuesday, 6:30pm

You will have an opportunity to meet your child's teacher and to hear about the instructional program and classroom procedures. In addition, you can meet the specialists (Music, Art, Physical Education, Spanish, Technology/Media) who teach your children. Please remember that this is not a time for individual conferences, but rather a chance to learn about the educational program and classroom expectations. Finally, Mr. Mercurio, Mrs. Emmanouilidis and Mrs. Loew will be available to answer questions at the end (through Google Meets).

A document with all the meeting links will be sent out the week of Back to School Night.
