There was a big surprise for the students when they had lunch a few weeks ago.  Principal Mrs. Harris was there with a big smile helping to serve lunch.  The main dish was chili and with only three staff working in the kitchen she pitched in to help with the 4 lunch shifts. (k- 3).  In between shifts, she walked around the lunch room as the students ate to mingle with the students.  One student asked her if she was the new "Chef".  It was a fun day!

The Washington Jr. High Student Council members made custom printed fall t-shirts with Wesley Halcyon House residents on October 6.  On the first Wednesday of each month, each of the four schools rotate to send a group of students to Wesley Halcyon House to spread a little sunshine!  Activities range from arts/ crafts, music, drama performances, community service, games, readings etc.  On the third Tuesday of each month, students visit the United Presbyterian Home to enjoy time with their residents in similar activities.  It is a lot of fun for everyone!

We've discovered a terrific way to raise funds for your school. It's super-easy, and all you have to do is use your Target® Visa® Credit Card. We will receive a percentage of the amount of each purchase in the form of a cash donation from Target through the Take Charge of Education® program. It's easy. Just visit target.com/tcoe, or call 1-800-316-6142 to designate our school. You can personally designate the specific school that your student attends.  So if you're going to Target anyway, please consider using your Target® Visa® Credit Card. Big thanks to those who are already doing their part to make a great school even better.  (Grandparents, alumni, neighbors and friends can take part, too!-- pass the word!)
