2nd Grade Science Night - 2017

The Second Grade Team, in cooperation with teachers from the RHS Science Department and their students, put together Science Night for all Second Grade students at Washington Elementary School.  Students had an opportunity to do a number of kid friendly experiments and activities that ranged from biological sciences to chemistry and physics.  It was a great evening of fun and learning for all those who participated.  

Washington Elementary Enrichment Programs

UPDATE (2/8/17): All clubs are full at this time.  Thank you!

The Washington Elementary Enrichment Programs will consist of 5 different clubs that meet at various times throughout the calendar year. Each club will contain activities that might appeal to different interests within the student population at Washington Elementary School. The leaders of the clubs will consist of at least two adult volunteers from the community who have an interest in the activities of the club. Cost for participation in each club will depend upon each clubs overall budget for the activities planned.

Registration for each club is limited. Each child will be able to register for two clubs. If there is space available in a club after the first 14 days of registration has lapsed the child can then enroll in a club where there is still space available. The success of these clubs will depend solely on volunteers. The fee will be collected at the first meeting of the club.
