Principal's Message


Dear Washington Family, 

We love having your students at Washington. Thank you for the privilege of working with them every day. We know that life is full of challenges. That has never been more true than now. However, 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.

We are committed to the safety and health of our students and staff as well as to their educational success. That commitment has not changed even though the mode of education may be different. 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 while keeping our students and staff healthy and safe. As parents, you have a huge impact in your students' lives. You can enhance their educational experience by ensuring your students are in class, asking your child about his or her day and reading with your child daily.

You can stay informed as to what Washington is doing by making sure that 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. You can also “like” our Washington Facebook! We post announcements and celebrations on this page frequently. During this time of virtual learning, we will also be posting daily announcements. We hope you find these helpful as we progress through the next few weeks.

Together, we can make this year successful! We are looking forward to working with all of you to accomplish that.

Mrs. Jennifer Griggs

Principal, Washington Elementary

Assistant Principal's Message 

Dear Washington Elementary Families,

Welcome back for the 2020-21 school year.  My name is Amber Landis, and I am honored and delighted to be the new Assistant Principal of Washington Elementary. 

As we begin this school year in an unprecedented fashion, it is my goal to make this a positive experience for all students and staff.  There will be struggles along the way for us all, and please know that I am available to help support in any way possible.

Children are most successful when we all work together. I value our partnership in ensuring that your child has the academic foundation needed to meet the challenges of an evolving world. I have an open door policy, and am happy to meet with you if you have any questions or concerns.  I look forward to getting to know this wonderful Washington community. 

Best Regards,

Amber Landis
