Welcome to a brand new year at Washington Elementary School!
Dear Washington Families,
My name is Alicia McIntire and I am the proud principal of Washington Elementary. We have a fantastic staff serving kindergarten through fifth grades. We are a Title 1 school that works closely together as a team to provide the highest standard of education possible for each and every child.
We incorperate two literacy programs , Guided Reading and Project Read, that focus on small group instruction and mastery for maximum growth in each child's learning. We recentl implemeted a writing program called Write Tools that has shown to have a lasting impact on our students' ability to effectively communicate through written language.
To help ensure our commitment to a positive school environment for each of our students, parents and staff, we implemented a program uilized throughout most of our county: the PAX Good Behavior Game. It is a culmination of many strategies for teachers and students alike to create a school environment that is peaceful, positive and productive.
We are focused on encouraging good attendance and recognizing our students in positive ways. We will recognize character traits, attendance and a student of the week program. We value each student at Washington School.
Please join me in welcoming our new staff to Washington this year:
Zach Goodman - Physical Education in the afternoon
Amy Swigart - Guidance Counselor
Jason Lantz - Attendant
Susan Jahn - Occupational Therapist
We are ready for a great year at Washington Elementary. Thank you for being part of our wonderful school!
