Our current 10th and 11th grade students were given their 2012-2013 Registration Handbooks and Registration Sheets. We asked students to take the materials home over this winter break and work on schedules for next year with parent(s)/guardian(s). Please see the Registration Handbook for suggestions of courses, depending on the path your student plans to take after graduation. If students have questions about courses they should register for, they should see their school counselor. REGISTRATION SHEETS ARE DUE TO SEMINAR TEACHERS BY THURSDAY, JANUARY 12.

Rachel's Challenge PDF Print E-mail

Recently, Washington High School hosted a Rachel's Challenge Assembly funded by the Washington County SAFE Coalition. Rachel Joy Scott was the first person killed in the Columbine High School tragedy in 1999. Immediately after the tragedy, her father began to speak around the nation and used writings and drawings from Rachel's many diaries to illustrate the need for a kinder, more compassionate nation. Today, speakers honor Rachel's life by reaching the nation with Rachel's simple profound message. This assembly helps provide students with social/ emotional education that is both colorblind and culturally relevant. It helps train adults to inspire, equip and empower students to affect permanent positive change. It creates a safe learning environment for all students by re-establishing civility and delivering proactive anecdotes to school violence and bullying. As well, it improves academic achievement by engaging students' hearts, heads and hands in the learning process. The MISSION STATEMENT that we can all learn from is: "We exist to inspire, equip and empower every person to create a permanent positive culture change in their school, business and community by starting a chain reaction of kindness and compassion."
