Welcome Principal Ms. Martin to East Washington Academy!
As autumn settles in and temperatures begin cooling down, our East Washington Academy teachers are getting FIRED up with HOT instructional best practices based on results that support the diverse academic needs of our students. One of East Washington Academy’s most successful initiatives is a monthly Accelerated Reader competition. Students in all grade levels earn points by taking tests after reading books at an appropriate reading level. This friendly challenge between classes is not only a healthy motivational tool, it is also a fun way to increase vocabulary and comprehension skills. It is important for parents to encourage our students to engage in this learning opportunity and hands on experience. So don’t be surprised if you see a WILDCAT with his/her nose buried in a book.
We had a wonderful turnout for our first meeting of this school year. The next meeting will occur Tuesday, October 20 at 6:30 p.m. in the Art room. As always, the meeting will last no more than an hour and free childcare will be provided. Please plan to bring a friend and join us!
Despite a rainy start, the Washington Street Festival generated $510 for our school. A special thanks to all of the volunteers who helped to make that weekend a success.
We will be sponsoring a Pumpkin Penny War this month. Each class will be invited to decorate a pumpkin October 19-21. The Penny War will take place Oct. 22-29. Students, families and staff members will donate pennies for the class with the pumpkin they like best. Silver coins deduct that amount from the pennies and can be used to sabotage the efforts of other classes! All proceeds will go directly to that particular classroom. Any class that generates proceeds of at least $75 will receive cotton candy. The winning classroom will receive a pizza party! Let the war begin!
By popular demand, we will be selling butter braids again. Students will collect orders for these flavor-filled pastries from Oct. 19 through Nov. 2. Butter braids can be frozen and baked at a later date. Delivery will occur Nov. 12, which is in plenty of time for your holiday meals.
