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 incorporate 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 utilize 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 utilized 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 working with our local health department to make this unique year as safe and meaningful for our kids as possible. Even though everything from masks on our faces to lunch and recess look different this year, please know that your child is still our biggest priority.
Please join me in welcoming our new staff to Washington this year:
Jennifer Heady - Third Grade
Samantha Venderlic - Fifth Grade
We are ready for a great year at Washington Elementary. Thank you for being part of our wonderful school!
