From the Principal

Dear Washburn Families,

Whether you are a returning family or a newcomer to Washburn School, I welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year.

At Washburn School, we focus every day on providing every member of our community a safe and positive learning environment where continued growth for student learners is our key focus. We are a school committed to educating for excellence by empowering our students to become compassionate, confident, creative and resourceful members of society. Our outstanding and committed staff works to ensure learning is fun, relevant and dynamic. An important part of this work involves the key relationships with our parents and community. We value and rely upon these partnerships as they are paramount to the success of all of our students. Please consider joining our PTO and becoming more involved in our school community. Your presence makes a difference. In addition, if there is ever any question or concern, please feel free to contact me directly at

The staff and I are looking forward to welcoming students and parents/guardians to a school year filled with learning and excitement. We are proud of the programs and activities we offer at Washburn School and encourage you to take an active role in your child’s education. Students and families who get the most out of the educational experience are those who actively participate.

I am truly excited to join the Washburn family and share this upcoming school year with you and your child. I would love the opportunity to meet you, so please feel free to stop by the main office to introduce yourself. Building a strong home-school partnership is important to me and vital to a child's successful educational journey. Thank you for entrusting us to nurture, encourage, challenge, and enjoy your precious ones as we embark on the 2020-20201 school year!

Yours in education,

Andrew M. Bard, Principal
