A special thank you to all of the families who came to open Washington Open House this year, it was an overwhelming success. Our students and staff have been working hard all year and were eager to share with you what they have been doing. Each of the classrooms were filled with student work and examples of what they have learned so far. In kindergarten students made life size examples of themselves and shared examples of how they are learning to read. There were examples of reading and writing activities around the first grade classrooms that our first graders were reading to our families. The second grade classrooms took our families on a trip to the ocean. There were ocean reports and research set-up with examples of the various types of animals found in the ocean. Our third graders were able to share their Fuzzy Ball Adventures that they wrote, edited and illustrated, while our fourth graders wrote and shared what it was like to be stuck in a snowglobe. Lastly, our fifth graders were able to share and play their pioneer games that they created to align with their studies of pioneers.
These are just a few examples of the great things that are happening here at Washington. Thank you again for coming to see what your students are learning each day and being an active partner in that process.
