Dear Washington Families:
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! I hope you enjoyed a summer vacation filled with fun and exciting memories with your loved ones. We were thrilled to welcome all of you back to a new school year of learning and growing.
Personally, I am grateful and elated to continue this journey with you as your Principal. Over the past few years, it has been a blessing to work with you and your children and I look forward to continuing to build a strong relationship with all of you in the upcoming year. As we enter this new school year, I want to let you know that our staff will be engaging in conversations and professional development around Social Emotional Learning, both for themselves and all students. We believe that every person in this building should always be growing and learning and we are committed to building a community that reaches the whole child.
I want to personally invite you to attend our Back-to-School Night on Monday, September 9th from 6-8 PM. This will be a great time to strengthen our WES community, meet teachers and other families, and learn about the upcoming school year. We have many EXCITING things planned!!!
Finally, the staff and I are looking forward to seeing all of you on the first day of school, Thursday September 5, 2019.
Yours in Education,
Mrs. Marianne Tankard
Principal, Washington Elementary School
