Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Washington Elementary strives to welcome, educate, and prepare students for the future!!!
Washington Elementary is a Title 1 School on the south end of Davis County. Washington’s students come from three different geographic neighborhoods, yet Washington’s school is united in the pursuit of academic excellence. Washington has a diverse population, which brings a cultural panache to the school community. Washington Elementary offers a before and after school program, extended day kindergarten, and provides free lunch all summer long for children in the entire south end of the district. Most summer days, Washington Elementary serves over 300 children.
The faculty at Washington is one of the most dedicated and skilled faculties in the district. Washington is focused on reading. Every program at Washington focuses on reading proficiency. Every class reads each day with teachers, community volunteers, PTA, and Title 1 tutors. If you walk into any classroom or hallway you will see students with their heads buried deep in their books. A literacy committee made up of teachers and PTA volunteers meets to discuss, learn, and plan reading interventions. Under the leadership of our reading coach and math coach, every teacher, tutor and community volunteer has been trained with research based strategies and practices.
