Where has the time gone?

April 29th, 2024


Dear Families,


How are we entering the final full month of the year? Although there are only six weeks left of school we have so much celebrating and believe it or not, more learning to do!


What better way to celebrate the closing of a productive and successful school year then with celebratory events like Teacher Appreciation Week and Family Picnic. There is a lot happening at Washburn in May and June so here is a list of some major dates and events to be sure to mark your calendars for:


◇Teacher Appreciation Week Monday May 6th - Friday May 10th

◇ Family Picnic Friday May 31st @ lunch times 11:00-12:30 pm
We are not providing food aside from regular school lunches - families may join their child on theplayground at lunchtime and bring food if they'd like.

◇ 6th Grade Field Trip to Sea Dogs Friday, June 7th @ 4:00 -9:00 pm

◇ Field Day Monday, June 10th - students please wear your class colors and bring a water bottle!

◇ 6th Grade Promotion at the local Senior Center on June 12th @ 4:30 pm

◇ Last Day of School Wednesday June 12th - 11:30 pm dismissal time!


As these next few weeks are sure to go by in a flash I wanted to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for welcoming me to the Washburn Community this year. Change is hard and despite all of the changes this resilient community has faced, I feel as though I could not have been more accepted and welcomed. It is a privilege to be a Washburn Lion and all individuals within our community have contributed to this feeling of privilege. We are Washburn!


Please remember my door is always open - feel free to call and leave me a message if I am unavailable or send me an email at [email protected]. I appreciate your collaboration and look forward to leading this community through the remainder of the school year alongside our wonderful staff here at Washburn School.
