A newsletter from Washington Elementary and Washington PTA
February 6th, 2018
Dear Washington Families,
For important WES attendance guidelines and educational absences information, check out this attendance policies link, which is also listed under the parents' link on our school website. It is important for families to know when scheduling trips during the school year that 10 or more consecutive absences can result in being unenrolled from Washington and returning to your base school. Please carefully consider these guidelines before scheduling trips.

ANNOUNCING THE 2018 WAKE UP AND READ BOOK DRIVE!
From January 20th - March 3rd, WAKE Up and Read will collect new and gently-used books for children ages birth - 12. Many Wake County children have no books in their home and arrive for kindergarten without the knowledge and experiences they need to excel. Washington families can make a difference in our community just by donating books! Please clear your cluttered shelves of books your kids have outgrown, or bring in favorites of your own, so that we can help Wake County children grow up loving books.
Look for the book collection bins at the Front Office – and please help us fill them!
