  • Register Now for Parent University!
    WESD’s fifth annual Parent University is coming Saturday, January 24, and registration is now underway! This is a free, half-day learning opportunity for all parents/guardians.


    Does your child need extra assistance in math? How can you set up a successful homework routine and study area for your child? Do you wonder about District and State assessments and what your child’s scores mean? How can you help your youngster be a successful reader? These topics and many more will be offered to promote academic success.

    How can you give your child some freedom on the computer and still protect him or her against cyberbullying? How can you talk to your child about the dangers of substance abuse? What can you do to help your child avoid bullying behaviors? These are a few of the student safety topics that will be presented.

    Can you actually save money through couponing? What does it mean to parent with love and logic? What community resources are available for families in need? How do you talk to your children about money? All these and other family education classes will be available.

    At Parent University, parents will also have the opportunity to hear a keynote address by Maria Paredes, Ed D, senior program associate for School and District Improvement at WestEd and nationally recognized expert and leader in the field of family engagement.

  • Early Release Wednesdays
    The Washington Elementary School District provides Early Release Wednesdays so that teachers can work together in teams to ensure the best possible instruction for your child. Research supports that professional learning communities that support teacher growth also reflect best practices for students and high student achievement. Every Wednesday, unless otherwise announced, our students will be released one-and-a-half hours early, so please be sure that arrangements are made to have your child cared for on our early release Wednesdays.
