Congratulation to our 5th Grade students for completing the D.A.R.E. Program (Drug and Alcohol Resistance Education). Students complete a course with Officer Hamby, where they learn how to make safe choices that support leading to a bright future. Students are required to complete an essay to graduate from the program.
Wildcats Connect with PHS
Mrs. Mendel's 3rd grade class received an art lesson from several Pendleton High School students. This was an excellent opportunity for Washington students to connect with PHS students, to learn a lesson in the the area of art, and an opportunity for some of our local high school students to support their youth.
Washington Wildcats made ornaments for the community tree. Students and their families were invited to Hamley's for the lighting of the community tree, where family members helped their children decorate the tree with their ornaments.
The Voices of Our Children
Students performed a winter program for family and friends. There was singing, dancing, instruments and narration. A huge thank you to our Music Teacher, Mrs. Dinkel, for bringing us together for the holidays.
PHS Jazz Band & Swing Choir
PHS Jazz Band & Swing Choir helped send us off to winter break with tunes that got Wildcat heads bopping, toes tapping and hands clapping.
1st grade students pair up with 4th grade buddies to build their math skills.
Thank you for going the extra mile to care for our children. In the first photo, you will see our one of our bus driver's in the middle of the students. The driver greets the children as they get on and off the bus every day, he knows them and goes the extra mile to make sure they have a great day. In the second photo is one of our Foster Grandparent Volunteers, working to provide students with extra educational opportunities in our school. Thank you!
Oregon Battle of the Books
Our 3rd - 5th grade students will again be participating in Oregon Battle of the Books. Students have selected their teams and are working to complete 16 books before the competition begins. During the competition, students work with their team to answer questions about the read books. The number one team at Washington will then move on to the Regional Battle.
