Principal

Hello Washington Parents!

The 2018/2019 school year marks my sixth year as principal of Washington Elementary School. The staff and students are the best in the district and I am proud to be a part of all the amazing things happening in our building!

This year, we are continuing to use our science program, Science Fusion as well as Journeys - a research-based ELA (English Language Arts) curriculum to cover all literacy fields; including grammar, spelling, vocabulary, phonics, comprehension and fluency.   New to us this year is an online assessment tool called Lexia, which will allow teachers to help students in areas they are having difficulty within the literacy fields.   We are also using Go Math! - a research-based, common core aligned, mathematics curriculum.

Let’s make this the best year yet! As always, contact the school with any questions or concerns.
