Students had a chance to celebrate Dr. Seuss Week at Washington Elementary School. Each day had a different theme. Day one was "Fox in Sox" day. Day two was a visit from author Aaron Reynolds. Day three was Pet Day. That day students could bring in a beloved stuffed animal. The final day of Dr. Seuss Week was "Green Eggs and Ham" Day. Pictured here is Superintendent of Schools Mr. Josh Quick reading to our students the book Green Eggs and Ham. Students finished off the celebration by singing Happy Birthday to Dr. Seuss.
Members of the Marathon Diveristy Team recently came to read the book I'm Like You and You're Like Me to first grade students at Washington Elementary. Washington wishes to say thanks to Marathon for the continued support of our students for such an important cause.
Students at Washington Elementary School and Lincoln Grade School had the opportunity to see a presentation by author Aaron Reynolds. Mr. Reynolds is a New York Times best-selling children's author from the Chicago-land area. Students had a chance to hear Mr. Reynolds read one of the many books he has authored and then students could ask Mr. Reynolds questions about his career and life as an author.
Last school year, our students and staff brought in over 40,000 box tops to raise a grand total of $4029.60. The funds raised with these box tops go directly into each students classroom allowing teachers to buy computer hardware and software, classroom materials and supplies, and a host of other items to ennhance your child's or grandchild's learning experience. I know that it may seem like a trivial thing, but we highly encourage you clip out those Boxtops and send them in. As you can see, it really adds up for each and every teacher and can truly make for a brighter future for all of our students. Thank you for your continued support!
