1.30.23 The Washington Weekly


Principal’s Message


Greetings Washington Families,


We are nearing the end of the second quarter and staff and students are working hard on making progress. I need to ask for your support in making all students successful, especially yours:


Washington GT uses STAR as an acronym to help staff and students focus on key, global areas:

S = show self-control

T = take responsibility

A =act safely

R = respect yourself and others

Have you specifically and recently had a conversation with your child about what YOU expect for behavior at school? If not, please do so. The more the adults are aligned in their views, the better it is for the child.

Let’s make it a great week at 1000 Fayetteville Street! 




Doug Hooper, Interim Principal

Joyce Ratley, Assistant Principal

Third-quarter electives start tomorrow! We are excited as students navigate their way to new experiences! 


Please remind students to check the lost and found area. Labeled items were returned to their owners. Items include 🧥, 👕, 🕶, water bottles, and lunch boxes. Jewelry and other small items might be located in the front office.
