The School District of Washington held an opening ceremony for all staff members Friday, Aug. 12, at the C.J. Burger Theater at Washington High School.

Students returned to the classroom for the 2016-17 school year on Tuesday, Aug. 16.

The theme of the opening ceremony was, “Together We Rise,” emphasizing the ability of taking risks.
Following the theme, some staff members showed off their talents with various singing, dancing and musical performances during the ceremony. See the photos below.

Superintendent Dr. Lori VanLeer gave her annual back to school message to the staff. The district employs over 700 teachers and staff members.

A WINGS staff appreciation picnic was held following the program at the city park.

Additionally, Chris Arnold, instruction support paraprofessional at Washington Middle School, was named the WINGS 2016 Support Staff Person of the Year. See the photo below.

Clearview Elementary received the silver recognition award as part of their participation in the Positive Behavior Support (PBS) Program for the 2015-16 school year. The award was presented at the Positive Behavior Support State Conference at Tan Tar A Resort in June. Clearview was one of only a handful of state schools to receive this recognition.

See the picture below of Clearview Elementary staff members accepting the award.

The following narrative was shared at the state conference explaining why Clearview was awarded silver level recognition. 

Clearview Elementary-Silver

A typical day at Clearview Elementary begins with all students reciting the ROCK (respect, ownership, commitment, kindness) pledge before leaving the gym and heading to class. 

Families are made aware of SW-PBS through brochures, updates in newsletters, and a Facebook page where celebrations and successes are shared. 

Not only has Clearview seen a decrease in ODR’s since implementing SW-PBS, but they have also seen an increase in academic achievement. Over the last three years, the percentage of students earning proficient or advanced on the MAP in grades 3-5 has increased an average of 20 percent in CA and 34 percent in math.

The staff reports their building has become a more consistent and positive place where students know the expectations in all areas and with every staff member.

Are you a parent who would like to help our K-3rd students become better readers? Do you have some spare time to volunteer? Then the Shine by Nine Volunteer program is for you! We need volunteers to help in the following areas:

  1. Listening to students read
  2. Working with students on letter and sound identification
  3. Helping students with comprehension techniques
  4. Helping students with decoding activities
  5. Assisting with reading center set up and activity set up
  6. Assisting with small group instruction (perhaps more in the monitoring way, not necessarily with instruction)
