This first Principal’s 200 Club Lunch of the 2017-2018 school year was celebrated at Olive Garden!  Every month we draw the names of five female students and five male students from our Principal’s 200 Club Tickets.  Tickets are earned by students for being SAFE, RESPONSIBLE, and RESPECTFUL in our hallways and on the playground.  We appreciate Ms. Gwen and Ms. Nicole for their assistance in today’s activity.  We would like to recognize Corey Cook, the general manager of the downtown Olive Garden (77 West 200 South) for sponsoring our lunch.  Keep up the good work Washington Stars!

Washington Art & Cultural Night was held on Thursday, March 20. Well over 300 people were in attendance! We want to throw a shout out to Playworks & Coach David, the B-Boys Federation, Lil' Feathers, and Tanner Dance. There were so many students, parents, teachers, and staff that helped put it all together. And we have to recognize our amazing art teacher, Laurie Shea, for organizing everything! All of the displayed art work for every grade level had depth and complexity, while demonstrating each student's individuality. We are lucky and grateful to have Ms. Shea work at Washington!
