March 24 Calendar UPDATE




Salt Lake City, UT, March 17, 2014– Washington Elementary presents a collective art experience entitled Thrive at Art Access, 230 South 500 West. The opening reception will be March 21st from 6pm-9pm.

This exciting and engaging work will be on display from March 21-April 11.
Thrive is a collective art making experience by first and sixth grade students from
Washington Elementary. They were assisted by several Salt Lake artists and
Washington teachers. All of work in this exhibit is collective. No single set of hands
completed any of the pieces. We worked off of each other’s ideas and vision.






Washington Elementary participates in an Inside Out Project Group action!

On February 20 and 21st Washington Elementary teachers, students and staff installed a large scale participatory art project at their school. The project began in the fall when a local photographer and artist, Cris Baczek came to Washington and photographed parents, teachers and staff- all people who contribute to the success of our school and care deeply about our students. We then submitted our photos to the Inside Out Project, an organization that fulfills the artist JR’s dream of creating a movement where people have an opportunity to stand up for what they care about and reveal these concerns to their community.

Project Theme

Washington Elementary thrives because of the people who support our children every day in a variety of ways. Our students' success hinges on the efforts of their parents, teachers and community members, from waking kids up on time for school and creating rich classroom experiences to making sure everyday essentials are provided--such as hot meals, warm coats and safe places for families to be together. Let this wall of photographs be a daily reminder to have conversations about how we all must engage in helping our children--and ourselves--thrive.

Our local Group Action was made possible with funds from Art Works for Kids, Beverly Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program, and the Salt Lake Arts Council.

More information can be found here: http://www.insideoutproject.net/en/group-actions/united-states-salt-lake-city-0


Looking Ahead- watch for this important calendar to come home with your child!

Recycling pays

Please consider helping our school earn money by bringing your paper recycling to the school and depositing it in the GreenFiber collection container located at the back of the north parking lot. Through our partnership with GreenFiber our school earns $30 per ton for all paper collected. You can bring your junk mail, old yellow page directories, newspapers and any other paper you would otherwise recycle at the curb. Bundles can be bound with twine or placed in paper bags. District-wide results are yielding an average of over 100,000 pound (50 tons) each month generating more than $1,300 that goes directly to the schools

Our hearts go out to the children, families, and our fellow educators in Connecticut. Answers are hard to find in times like this, but the district website does have links to some guidelines for parents on how they can talk to their children about crisis situations. Follow the link below.

Washington Elementary Radio Disney Assembly by Stevie G.

Radio DisneyWhen Radio Disney came to our school, we had lots of fun! The assembly was to teach us about healthy food and what to put in our bodies to help us be healthy. We learned 4 steps of food to put in our body: 5 fruits or vegetables, 2 hours of screentime (time on things with a screen, like a television or computer), 1 hour of physical activity, and 0 kinds of soda pop, energy drinks, or fruit juice. We also learned that milk, chocolate milk, and water is a very good substitute for soda or any other bad drinks.

We did a lot of exercise too. At first, we stood up and did many different dance moves to help us exercise. Other kids also got to be on the stage and do a small physical challenge. They had to run around cones, do 5 jumping jacks, have a hula hoop go around their waist 5 times, then run back and give their team captain a high five. Everyone did a few jumping jacks too.

We had so much fun at the assembly! It was all free because of the Kohls Cares program. Thanks Kohls![sic]

Annual Assessment approaches for the Salt Lake City School District Magnet Extended Learning Program

The Extended Learning Program (ELP) of the Salt Lake City School District offers educational opportunities for students who show high academic abilities in grades kindergarten (K) through eighth. One component of ELP is a K through 6th grade magnet program.  Currently, we are accepting requests to assess students to determine eligibility for possible placement into next school year’s K-6th ELP magnet and International Pathways (IP) (a Spanish bilingual magnet).

Students qualifying for an ELP placement have shown that they need an academic program which allows them to move more quickly, work with more complex concepts, and delve more deeply into academic content. The elementary ELP magnets are housed at Hawthorne, Whittier, and Emerson Elementary.  Students and their families must reside, and continue to reside, within the Salt Lake City School District to be assessed for or participate in the Extended Learning Program.

If you are interested in requesting an ELP assessment for your child entering grades K-6th please call 801-578-8573 as soon as possible. Testing must be requested prior to February 15th, 2013. If you would like more information, go to the website http://www.slcschools.org/depts/exceptional/elp/ or call.

Actualmente, estamos recibiendo solicitudes para evaluar estudiantes y ser posiblemente colocados dentro del Programa Magnet de Aprendizaje Avanzado del Kínder al sexto grado y el Programa Internacional Pathways (IP) (Vías Internacionales) (un programa magnet bilingüe español).

Los estudiantes que califican para ser colocados/asignados en el programa ELP han demostrado que ellos necesitan un programa académico, el cual les permita avanzar más rápidamente, trabajar con conceptos más complejos y ahondar más profundamente en el contenido académico. El programa magnet de escuela primaria se ubica en las escuelas Primarias Hawthorne, Whittier y Emerson. Los estudiantes y sus familias deben vivir, y continuar viviendo dentro de los límites geográficos del Distrito Escolar de Salt Lake City para participar en el programa.

Happy Halloween from the Washington Stars

Students, parents, and staff had a wonderful time celebrating Halloween. The morning started with a Halloween Parade. This year's parade had a Disney magic theme, with many of the staff dressed as famous Disney characters and Disney Halloween music echoing throughout the hallways! Parents and guests were invited to join us for the festivities with lots of photo ops along the parade route. The day ended with class parties. We would like to thank everyone who helped make this memorable day possible.

The Halloween Obstacle Course

Last week, during P.E., there was a Halloween Obstacle Course. It was set up in the gym. Miss Shawney put up the obstacle course for us to play on. There was a balance beam, some huge noodles to walk through, and scooters to ride on. There were ghosts to throw and a dark tunnel. There was Michael Jackson Halloween Music. It was very, very fun for the whole school. [sic]
