Washington Union SchoolNurturing Personal, Social and Academic Growth
Washington Union School provides an outstanding environment for 4th and 5th grade students to learn and succeed! It is our mission to create a safe, friendly, dynamic learning environment; to promote excellence in student academic achievement, challenging the ability of each individual; to nurture positive personal, social, and civic growth and responsibility; and to instill a lifelong love of learning.
As expressed in our mission statement, we strive to build a community of learners that are motivated, successful, and challenged. We recognize and accept individual differences and promote personal potential in all. Celebrating a collaborative climate and supporting a safe school environment for all students provides a positive atmosphere that is pervasive on our campus.
The school serves 160 students in the 4th and 5th grades with an average class size of 26 students. Teachers work closely together to plan dynamic lessons and share students for science and social studies lessons. Throughout the year, students work on the life skills of honesty, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, citizenship, and character through our Character Counts program.
This past year, the fourth graders took a trip to Columbia and other Gold Rush sites during their study of early California. They also visited Mission San Juan Bautista. Fifth grade students spent a week in December at the Sierra Outdoor Science School. Art and music are staples of our district, thanks to programs provided by the Washington Union Education Foundation (WUEF).We are proud to have a collaborative base of parents, students, and staff working together to provide the best possible environment for successful academic rigor and social/emotional growth during the fourth and fifth grades.Jill Camron, Principal
