Dear Parents,

This letter is to inform you that state and local public health officials have increased monitoring for illness from a novel influenza A (H1N1) virus that is making people sick in several states, including Iowa.  Despite probable cases of novel influenza A (H1N1) in Iowa, we believe students can safely attend classes, thus schools should remain open at this time.

Bus Drivers Needed! PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, July 29 2008 10:49
Washington Community Schools is looking for regular route and substitute bus drivers.
Earn a competitive daily wage that equals $19.18 per hour for 3 hours a day.
This would be a great part-time job for a parent looking to stay on the same schedule as their children's school schedule, or a retired individual who is looking for a great part time job with a flexible schedule. As a sub-driver, we can work around your schedule. We are especially in need of drivers from the Brighton area.
Regular route drivers have the opportunity to drive activity trips to and from sporting events, local trips during the day, or both to earn even more.

The WJHS learning center officially opened in December of 2008. We also opened the second part of the learning center, our ELL classroom at the same time. Students who are struggling in school or behind in the academics can attend or be referred to our learning center to work on projects or receive 1-1 assistance. We have over 300 referrals each month and our kids benefit greatly from the technology, full computer lab, and resources that are available. These new classrooms and resources were provided by a $50,000 grant from the Washington County Riverboat Foundation.

Tuesday, January 06 2009 09:48

Washington Community Schools has been awarded two grants from the Washington County Riverboat Foundation. One grant, awarded for $40,000, will allow the district to equip several elementary school classrooms with multimedia projectors, screens, and audio equipment to enhance learning.

The second grant was awarded to high school science and math departments for  $21,000 to help purchase 8 hand-held data collectors with assorted sensors.  These data collectors will interface with a computer or stand alone as a small computer unit.  Students will be able to collect data in the classroom or out in the field, graph the data, print it, or transfer it to computers.  Some examples of the many laboratory uses are as follows:

1. Measuring oxygen production during photosynthesis.
2. Gathering water quality data in a stream.
3. Using a pH sensor for acid/base titrations in chemistry.
4. Using motion detectors to analyze motion of balls in the air. (physics)
5. Explore trigonometric functions using pendulums in math classes.

The science department will also be using the grant money to purchase a digital microscope for use in biology classes.
