Book Order

Your child should be bringing home a book order today. These are due back by December 6th, so I can ensure we will get them back before Christmas Break. Books make great gifts. If you find something you would like for your child you can drop off the order in the office, or you can order online and shoot me a quick email that what you ordered is for Christmas. When the order comes in I will contact you to swing by and pick up the order in the office at your convenience.

Veteran's Day Assembly

On Friday, November 11th, we celebrated Veteran's day here at Washington Elementary. We all got together for a wonderful assembly. Jeff Crile from the Iowa National Guard was our guest speaker. He is the father of one of our third graders. It was a great honor to have him take time to come and speak to us. We also got to hear the fourth graders sing a very nice song honoring soldiers. It was a very nice program and helped our students learn a little more about this holiday. Below are some pictures from this assembly.

On Wednesday, November 9th, we celebrated the month of October here at Washington Elementary. Many kids were honored for perfect attendance throughout the month. We also identified a student in each grade that exemplified Habit #2...Begin with the End in Mind. Nathan Whitney was chosen from Miss Smith's room. He is constantly doing his best and working at helping others. Congratulations Nathan!
