Dear families,

I want to warmly welcome you to Washington. As your principal, it is my sincere pleasure to work with our dedicated staff and community to help provide an excellent educational experience for our students. We are committed to ensuring that your children receive the best support to learn and grow.

Our vision for Washington Elementary is to provide students with an educational experience that inspires and motivates them to be lifelong learners and caring contributors to the world around them. Our goal is to provide a nurturing environment that meets the individual needs of each student, both academically and socially.

Families, teachers, support staff, community members, and administration all play a part in helping our students develop academically, socially, and emotionally. Together, we can make a positive difference. A strong partnership between home and school fosters greater success for our children. We encourage parents to communicate often with teachers and staff to build a successful partnership.

We are excited for the opportunity to work with you and your child to provide a safe and productive learning environment. I encourage you to contact me to share ideas, concerns, or questions. I wish your family, and especially your student, great success this school year!
