Science in Our Hands

Washington Elementary School had a hands on Science opportunity. Museum Outreach brought Ice Age, Artifact, Fossil and Engineer lessons to Washington Elementary School. Each classroom had a hands on learning session. A HUGE THANK YOU to Museum Outreach for the scholarship and to our Washington Parents Club, for funding this opportunity for our children.

Meet the Author

5th Grade Wildcats skyped with author, Rob Buyea. Rob Buyea wrote Because of Mr. Terupt, a story about a 5th grade class, where the students learn life lessons from one another, and become a team. Each class is reading the story in their classroom, this book is followed by two sequels, where the students become 6th graders.

An Opportunity to Grow

Lori Sams from BMCC spoke to our fifth grade students about the current exhibit in the Betty Feves Gallery. The artist, Claire B. Jones, entitled her exhibit “Perception of Failure.” Students examined all of the pieces which contained some sort of “failure” according to the artist. Lori then challenged the students to examine their own thoughts on what failure means to them and to share those thoughts with each other. Students also did an art activity of their own and took a campus tour led by BMCC Student Anbassadors

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss

Washington celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday and Read Across America, with an all school read around. Students of all ages mixed together and listened to stories read aloud by staff.

Jump Rope for Heart

Wildcat students participated in Jump Rope for Heart, earning nearly $2,500 for the organization. WAY TO GO, WILDCATS! Thank you, Miss Donnelly, for organizing this event.

Congratulations, Wildcats!

Students were recognized an our Awards Assembly for special strengths and skills. One boy and one girl out of each classroom were nominated by peers for Kindness Awards. Students with 100% attendance this school year were celebrated.
