From the Principal

Welcome to the 2022-23 school year!


Washburn Elementary School welcomes back its students for the 2022-23 school year for what is sure to be a great one. We hope our teachers, students, and families all had safe and fun summer breaks. We are all ready now to get back into the swing of things.


I am Erik Gray and I have proudly accepted the position of interim Principal of Washburn Elementary School. It is a great honor to serve as the leader of this great school. I have been an Auburn educator since 2006 spending most of my time as a teacher and assistant principal at Edward Little High School. I am incredibly excited to work with the students and families of our school, as well as the passionate and dedicated staff members who work here. 


Welcome to the new and improved Washburn Elementary website. The purpose of this webpage is to provide the parents of our school and community with easy access to information on our Washburn School programs, policies, and activities. Our intent is to keep our parents well informed and our hope is that this site becomes a useful tool for all of us to help us stay connected and up to date. 

Washburn is an amazing learning community and our teachers are committed to providing engaging learning experiences for students that fit the needs of each child. We encourage parents to visit our school during scheduled open houses, literacy nights, and to attend student performances to celebrate the hard work of our students. We believe that parents are our most valuable partners and your involvement is an essential component to the success of your child. Please visit our website often and feel free to “bookmark” it so that you can find it easily on your web browser.

For more information on the policies and programs of Washburn Elementary School and the Auburn School Department, please use the links on the webpage. If you need general information or wish to contact staff at the school, you may use the Staff Directory on this website or call 207-784-5467.

I look forward to working with you and please reach out to me or any of our staff members with questions or concerns.
