Washington Elementary will be utilizing Skyward's feature known as the Message Center to notify parents or guardians in our system of important and time sensitive details.  In order for this to be effective, we will need your current, working email address in the system.   To verify your email address log on to your Family Access account through Skyward.  Should you need help with this, please contact the office, 715-424-6788.

Online registration needs to be completed every year.  It is very important that we have the most recent contact information for your child in case of an emergency.  If this has not been completed yet, please contact the office and they will be happy to help you with this process.  

The Walking School Bus is coming to Washington this spring.  Students can walk safely to school with trained volunteer leaders.  Parents, you could be one of these leaders!  For more information please contact:  Beverly Ghiloni, WR Safe Routes to School Coordinator at 715-459-5599 or email bghiloni@wirapids.org.

 Elementary Schools


Our K-5 elementary schools have a curriculum that emphasizes literacy skills.  Teachers work to provide a strong basis in reading and writing to insure success at the secondary level and beyond.  Critical thinking, creativity, communication skills, and technology integration are woven throughout the language arts, math, science and social studies areas.  In addition, students receive art, music and physical education classes weekly.

At the primary level, the District curriculum is also developmentally appropriate.  This means that teachers meet each student where they are, and take them to their optimal learning level.  Lessons address varied interests, needs and abilities.  The development of each child’s confidence as a learner is also an important part of the teaching and learning that occurs at the elementary level.
