Elementary School

Principal's Corner
Welcome To All Students, Parents, and Guardians!

We hope you are all just as excited as we are to work together to offer encouragement and support for your child during this school year, and as a result see academic and social growth in your child.

We believe that a strong partnership between families and staff is essential to inspire, challenge and empower our students! We need your support to assist your child in attending school regularly and on time. We invite you to play an active role in your child’s education. Ask questions, come to events and show your child that school and learning are the keys to success! 


Washington uses a curriculum based on the Core Knowledge Sequence, a rich and rigorous body of information in American and world history, geography, science, literature, music and art. The school is based on the belief that the most effective elementary education balances high expectations for mastery of basic reading, math, writing, and technology skills with a solid foundation of factual information in the content areas. Our single-grade classrooms use the same reading textbook program as neighborhood schools, and supplement the reading instruction with classic literature recommended in the Core Knowledge Sequence. Math instruction uses the Harcourt Math textbooks to help students master basic math facts, computation skills, concepts, and problem solving. Teachers use a variety of instructional methods to help students learn content and skills. Our character education program, which is integrated throughout the school day, helps provide a learning environment that is orderly, respectful, and productive. Regular homework and parent involvement are also features of the school. Extracurricular activities include math masters, Lego league, and foreign language clubs. To arrange a tour, call our office at 507.328.3800.
