Principal's Message

Dear Washington Family,

I am extremely excited to be joining Washington as your new principal. Our theme this year is “Soar Above.” We know that life is full of challenges – and learning new concepts is one of them! We believe in the “power of yet” which means that we may not know the answers – yet – but with hard work and perseverance, we will soar above our challenges and find success.

My commitment to you this year is to be an encouragement to your students while holding them accountable to learning and growing. All students can learn. At Washington, we believe that and we will do what it takes to make sure understanding can be achieved.

I look forward to meeting all of you and to working with your students. I have heard wonderful things about our students and families. Your support this year will make a huge difference in your student’s success. Here are some ways you can partner with us to help your student “soar above” this year.

+        Ask your child about his or her day.

+        Read with your child daily!

+        “Like” our Washington Facebook! We post announcements and celebrations on this page frequently.

+        Be sure our office has your current phone number and current email address at all times. If something changes, just come in and let us know. Many flyers will be coming home through email this year instead of on paper and we want you to stay informed.

+        Read all flyers and stay informed about what we are offering.

It’s going to be a great year!

Mrs. Jennifer Griggs

Principal, Washington Elementary

Assistant Principal's Message 

Dear Washington Elementary Families,

Welcome back for the 2018-2019 school year.  My name is Michelle Hall and I am the new Assistant Principal of Washington Elementary.  I am so proud and honored to be part of this community and to serve you and your children.

As we begin this school year, it is my goal to know your child by need and strength so I can ensure that I am supporting your child in both social and academic growth.  We will encourage our students to “soar above” and achieve their goals by asking questions, collaborating with peers, and persevering to meet and exceed expectations. 

I strongly believe in the importance of our partnership and working together to ensure your child excels; so please know my door is always open and I am happy to meet with you if you have any questions or concerns.  I look forward to getting to know you and becoming part of this wonderful Washington community.
