It is with great pride that I share with you my vision for Washington High School. As the Principal of Washington my focus is to help create a nurturing environment that supports all learners to succeed far beyond high school developing a pipeline to career and college. With that in mind, I will build upon WHS traditions by continuing to create and document school-wide systems especially those supported by community partnerships.
· Social emotional supports are important.
· Learning is a life-long process.
· Relationships need to be nurtured.
· Learners should be supported by adults who have the passion to want to make a difference.
As we continue to move forward throughout this year, I believe with focused goals WHS can be the connection to the future where potential is limitless!
