Dear Students and Families,
I am excited about this school year an all of the new opportunities that will greet our students. Students were welcomed by brand new carpeting and tile in their classrooms this year! Our students will also be greeted by an expanded selection of Elective classes. We believe that Electives are an important part of the school experience for students, to connect what is learned in the classroom to other ventures in a fun and challenging way. Some of the new Electives being offered this year are: Flight & Rocketry, Computer Programming & Robotics, and Character Leaders. We believe that through these new, and the existing opportunities for students that students will have one of the best years ever at Washington Middle. The picture at the top of this webpage shows open door symbolizing what I know exists at WMS - that endless possibilities exist for students in our school. Washington Middle School is in unique and fortunate situation. We are a smaller middle school - which allows for strong relationships between teachers/staff and the students, in a safe and welcoming environment. At the same time, we also offer all the activities and elective opportunities of the larger middle schools!
People often ask me about my favorite part of working at Washington Middle School. That is an easy answer - the students and staff! I am lucky enough to work for a school with friendly, courteous, respectful students, and I found a Staffulty (Faculty & Staff) that are student-centered, dedicated to the cause of schooling, and committed to the development of positive relationships with students.
As Principal, I am eager to share the exciting things that happen in our school with others, mainly through social media. We have created Twitter accounts for the school in English and Spanish. We encourage the community to follow us, and to keep abreast of the latest developments and happenings with our school.
For the sake of learning,
Eric J Chagala
