Welcome to Washington Elementary

Our Washington students and staff welcome you to our school.  Washington is a Kindergarten through 5th grade building in the Wisconsin Rapids School District.  We strive to make school a safe, welcoming, and great place to learn each day.  

Mission Statement:

Working together with home and community, we are dedicated to providing the best education for every student, enabling each to be a thoughtful, responsible, contributor to a changing world.

Governing Values:

  • We Believe each student is the first consideration of the education process.
  • We Believe all students can learn.
  • We Believe learning is a life-long process.
  • We Believe in a safe, caring, and respectful learning environment.                    
  • We Believe all students should become effective citizens of the community, state, nation, and the world.
  • We Believe meaningful home, school, and community involvement is vital to continuous improvement.

Respectful, Responsible, and Safe Washington.

We strive to develop the child as a whole.  We hold our students to high expectations and practice being respectful, responsible, and safe in our school and the community.  We have a Leader of the Pack focus point that includes a goal in each classroom on a monthly basis that reinforces these beliefs.  We encourage families to talk with their child about ways they can be respectful, responsible, and safe at home as well.

Washington Carnival

Washington School Carnival Raises $4,300!


Over 360 children and their families flooded Washington School for the annual School Carnival. This year’s carnival included twenty different games and activities for families to enjoy, as well as concessions and a GIANT basket raffle with over 150 baskets! The funds will go toward keeping field trip costs down, hosting school assemblies, and technology for the classrooms. The PTAC would like to thank the volunteers and all of the community donors who made the Carnival possible. Please visit these businesses and show your appreciation for their generosity!

The Walking School Bus (a group of children walking to school with one or more trained adult volunteer leaders) will be starting Tuesday,  April 5, 2016!  Watch for further information via upcoming  newsletters and your child's  take home folder. Click here for more information. 

Exercising Kids

SHAPE America recommends school-age children accumulate at least 60 minutes and up to several hours of physical activity per day. Each bout of physical activity should be followed by cool-down stretches that help reduce soreness and avoid injury. Mr. Nolan believes our students should follow these recommendations and would like to share this activity calendar with you. Happy exercising!
