Did you know?
Our school has over 700 eBooks that are available during the summer months for reading.  All you need is the internet and a device to read the book on (this can be anything from a laptop to a tablet).  These eBooks can be found by going to www.wrps.org.  Once there, find the WRPS libraries lab along the left hand side and click on "Washington School Library."  Finally, scroll to the bottom of this page and find the "Follett Shelf - eBooks" link.  This is where you will find all of the eBooks that are available to you. There are sure to be some books that your child will want to read as we have a wide variety of topics and reading levels!  Remember...it is so important to keep your child reading during the summer months and eBooks can make reading fun!  Check them out!

 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.
