There’s always a buzz around Washington Primary School. Principal Michelle Richards likes it that way. The third year building leader wants students to be enthusiastic and excited and she has 350 of them spread across grades kindergarten through third grade.
Washington students love academic challenges. The subject matter really doesn’t matter. They are up for tackling any topic and they work hard to master it.
Dr. Richards recently announced the names of October’s Washington Ways Award winners. They are an outstanding group of youngsters, who are all working hard in their classes and displaying exemplary behavior all over the building – even outside on the playground.
The recent honorees include Natalia Lizama, Joseph Regan, Anais Grant, Arham Baig, Shira Bennett, Kenneth Samayoa Rivas, Lylah Murtaza, Elliana Stellato, Tillie England, Anderson Guidel Gregorio, Isabella Castillo, Aedan Dowling, Byron Jimenez, Isla Campbell, Savanna Sturges, Palmer Laycock, Nathan Goepel and Avery Diaz-Funston.
The entire classes of teachers Victoria Creighton and Nicole Monte were recognized as October’s Blue Ticket Award honorees.
“Naturally we are very proud of all of our award recipients as well as all of our other students,” Dr. Richards said. “They are working hard during this very challenging period. All of us look forward to the day when the pandemic subsides and our school can return to normal.”
