Washington welcomes incoming kindergarten students and families.
2nd graders were transported back to the 1800s on their field trip last week to Museum Village. They learned what life was like then, made candles, visited an old schoolhouse, and even saw Harry The Mastodon - an elephant-like creature that lived thousands of years ago!
This month Mrs. Santagato visited each classroom to read the book Stand in My Shoes and discuss the importance of empathy. Our fifth grade Peer Leaders wrote various scenarios for our younger students to practice "standing in their shoes". #WeAllShine@Washington
Congratulations to the winners of our first ever Math-a-Thon! These students practiced their math facts practically every day and got to the GREEN LIGHT! We are so proud of their hard work! Our school has solved 1.43 MILLION facts on Reflex Math this year! #WeAllShine@Washington
Mrs. Amaral's class had a very special visitor! Mr. Amaral came to teach the students about plants. Each student planted their own special flower to give their moms for Mother's Day! #WeAllShine@Washington
Second grade students in Mrs. Fodor’s class were so happy to release these butterflies back into nature after watching them grow from caterpillars in the classroom! These 2nd graders studied the life cycle of a butterfly in science. #WeAllShine@Washington
To our WWRSD teachers, we want to wish you all Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! Thank you for your hard work and playing such an important role in shaping children's education!
We are so lucky to such dedicated and caring teachers and staff! Happy Teacher Appreciation week! #WeAllShine@Washington
We are so proud of these students for their above and beyond efforts to be great citizens and friends at Washington School. They were recognized for demonstrating kindness, responsibility, sportsmanship, or inclusivity. Keep up the great work! #WeAllShine@Washington
Our third grade students rocked it out for their first time taking the NJSLA! Thank you to our teachers for making it a fun celebration of learning! #WeAllShine@Washington
As part of a Social Studies unit about our community, kindergarteners took a walking trip to the library! What a great way to foster lifelong readers! #WeAllShine@Washington
Mrs. Amaral's class had a special visit this week from our district therapy dog Colonel! #WeAllShine@Washington
Third graders wrote inspiring messages to our fourth and fifth graders to get them pumped for the NJSLA! So proud of our students for building each other up :) #WeAllShine@Washington
Last week our students participated in an exciting BMX Anti-bullying assembly! The show focused on tolerance and how to think positively instead of negatively. Thank you to our PSO for sponsoring this assembly! #WeAllShine@Wash

Over the last two weeks, Mrs. Palianto visited each classroom to read the book The Curious Garden, by Peter Brown. Students loved hearing about how one person can make a big impact on the world by being a good citizen! #WeAllShine@Washington
Happy Eid! Ramadan ends after a month of fasting and prayer.
Director of Elem Education learned about the Twp of Washington resources from Children's Librarian Marie Joyce. Dr. Carmichael was impressed by the growing section of decodable readers to support phonics and the ongoing programs for children. Twpofwashingtonpl.org @twpwashlibrary
Our first graders are collecting painted rocks to make our garden more beautiful! We encourage all students to paint a rock and bring it to school to add to our collection! #WeAllShine@Washington
How many yards does it take to get from Mrs. Fodor's classroom to Ms. Palianto's office? Just ask these 2nd graders who measured the distance yard by yard to the principal's office at Washington School! The answer = 62 yards! #WeAllShine@Washington
