Message from the Principal

May 2017

Dear Washington Elementary School Families,

May 1-5 is Teacher Appreciation Week.  This week is set aside to recognize those with whom we expect so much and who deliver even more – our teachers!

While I am sure we desire that our teachers feel appreciated each and every day, I would like to encourage our families to take a few moments to thank their teacher for their loyal and dedicated service to the students and community they serve. 

Washington Elementary School is an exceptional place to work and learn because of those who work here.  Teachers are important and integral members of our staff and we need to express how much we appreciate the work they do to provide the best for our children.

Each of the Washington teachers lead student achievement by encouraging, challenging, motivating and inspiring each student to learn at high levels.  And, as parents, it must be a relief to know that when you send your children to Washington Elementary School, they will be provided with the best possible educational experiences.

As principal of this outstanding, award winning school, I am extremely proud to say that I work with such a wonderful group of professionals and I count it a privilege to serve as their principal. 

Please join me in taking time to show your appreciation that teachers so richly deserve for the example they set for children of the value of a quality education, of showing respect, solving problems and making good and safe decisions – I believe they do it better than anyone!

In partnership,

Keith Collins
