Mr. Blake and Students in Outdoor Classroom

Welcome to Washington School! We are proud to be celebrating 100 years of Wizard Pride and the distinction of being the first school in town!

As principal, I am fortunate to work with a professional staff that is dedicated, talented, and caring as they work tirelessly to continue providing the outstanding programs and instruction that distinguish us. Our primary concern is the academic, social, emotional, and physical well being of our students. As a staff we are dedicated to meeting the needs of the whole child, designing real life applications of instructional concepts, fostering the values of caring and respect, and creating an atmosphere where children feel safe, nurtured and supported.

We recognize that our greatest asset is our student body. Our hope is that they develop and maintain confidence in themselves as learners and valued participants in this community. We anticipate that they will grow to be happy and productive citizens who are able to work with others and look beyond themselves. Most of all, we are optimistic that they will emerge with the knowledge that there is always room and time to grow.

We can accomplish this by continuing to establish an environment for learning that promotes cooperation, caring and communication. The construction of this learning environment is a job that requires the active participation of all members of our school community-students, educators, and parents. Together we can build a place where children can reach their dreams! I look forward to working with you.

Scott J. Blake, Ed.M.
