Words From Washington

October 2019 - We're off to a Spooktacular Start!

Virtue of the Month: Sportsmanship: The strength to show fair and
generous behavior through all competitive
environments.

Each month we present a new virtue to the students to teach lifeskills they can apply now and throughout the future.

Ask your child how they are demonstrating the virtue each month.

This year we have some more great events planned, such as our Literacy Walk, Trunk or Treat, the Santa Shop, Literacy Walk, Daddy/Daughter and Mother/Son events, Popcorn and Nacho sales among others. Keep a look out on the calendar and flyers that will be coming home throughout the year for details. If you have any ideas, suggestions, or want to find out ways to help, our next WOW meeting is Monday, November 4th at 6 pm, in the library. This is a great opportunity to get involved in your child’s school and get to know other families from the building. We hope to see you there.

Father figures, we have the Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads Of Great Students) program here at Washington.

Father figures, we have the Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads Of Great Students) program here at Washington. This is an opportunity for you to join us for the day working with the students and staff throughout the building. The students love to see the males in the building and from the feedback we’ve received, the dads like it just as much. Keep a look out for our kick-off information coming soon.

This school year each elementary school has a Literacy Coach to help teachers, students and families. Throughout the school year the coaches will be hosting literacy events at each of the elementary schools. No matter what school it is at, the Literacy Night is open to the entire district. Washington will be hosting our first Literacy Night! We are calling all 3rd, 4th and 5th graders to join us on Wednesday, October 16 at Washington for Spooky Strategies and Scary Stories! More info to come, including the time of the event. How can you support Literacy at Home? *Take it with you when you go! Bring a book or magazine any time you and your child need to wait, like at the dentist or doctor’s office. There is always time to fit in reading! *Switch out the car technology for a small basket of books. Instead of playing the car DVD player or handing a tablet to a child to keep them busy, get a small tub of books or put different books in the seat pockets. Frequently change out the books!
