Our Washington School Preschoolers are having bushels of fun in Mrs. Gawronski-Smyth and Mrs. Lucia’s class. They followed a recipe to make applesauce for the Tree Study. Our preschoolers were measuring and mixing, cooking and tasting! Parents and guardians play such an important role in the development of a child and our Preschoolers had such a great time learning how to cook from 2 of our parents!

Washington School students in Mr. Burzynski's music class from this week learned about the Theremin, one of the first electronic musical instruments, invented about 100 years ago. The Theremin is most famous for providing other-worldly sound effects for science fiction movies, so students experimented with the theremin after singing with the picture book “The Aliens Are Coming!”

Washington School is celebrating 6 years since creating our School Store! The School Store is a great incentive program and allows all staff members to give out School Bucks for a variety of reasons (kind acts, academic achievements, etc). We utilize the store to also teach students the value of a job. The 5th & 6th graders apply and work in the store and even receive a “paycheck”. Check out some of our classes shopping for the first time this school year. Thank you to Laura Hempel for decorating our School Store to celebrate our 6th year!
