Welcome to 2019-2020 at Vare-Washington Elementary!

The new school year ahead presents a wonderful opportunity to build upon the strategic work of recent years and to continue to support our students to develop their passions, sharpen their talents, and excel academically.  This year, we will maintain a focus on ensuring that students develop essential early literacy skills, demonstrate mastery of rigorous grade-appropriate standards, and continue to build their love for learning. Additionally, we will continue to focus on increasing the number of students who reach our attendance goal of eight absences or fewer.  We look forward to strengthening the dynamic partnership that exists between families and our school. Parents and families are our students’ first teachers, and we are thrilled to collaborate with you throughout the year!

We hope that this website will serve as a valuable resource as you move through the year. The material contained herein is not all-inclusive, but rather, it highlights information most often needed.  Included are many important dates that you should mark on your calendars; specific procedures that have been established to foster a safe and healthy environment for all members of our community; and policies designed to set all of our students up for success.  We appreciate your support and collaboration!

Please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions.  We encourage and greatly welcome your involvement and engagement.  Please visit us, volunteer, and become active in our vibrant community!

In Partnership,
Gretchen Stewart
