Welcome to Washington Elementary

Fall Meet and Greet Open House

Tuesday, August 30  4:00 - 6:00 P.M.



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.
