Dear Washington Middle School Families:
Welcome to Washington Middle School. I am proud to serve you and your children as we begin the 2019-2020 year.
The Washington Middle School staff is committed to providing a safe, comfortable, and rigorous learning environment for all of its students. The adults who work at Washington are well versed in adolescent development as well as the California State Content Standards. They are prepared to help our students progress through this period of intense development both emotionally and intellectually.
Everyone at Washington knows that Patriots are Ready – Responsible – Respectful. We pride ourselves on preparing students for college and careers by helping them develop necessary academic and social skills. Collectively we teach all students the school-wide expectations. We continue to develop our understanding of Positive Behavior Interventions and Social Emotional Learning so all students can learn and progress each year. Our Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) committee is eager to continue our work of analyzing data and improving decision making about student expectations and behavior on campus.
We look forward to seeing you on campus this year. You are a member of the Washington community merely because you have a family member who attends Washington. I invite you to visit campus to help improve your child’s education and the educational program we provide for all of our students.
The teachers at Washington work to provide a challenging learning environment. Teachers meet weekly to analyze test scores, review instructional practices, and evaluate instructional techniques. The goal is to meet students at all levels of the learning spectrum so each can show growth. We work to provide all students with access to grade level curriculum so they are prepared for the next year, high school, college, and a career.
We are all looking forward to a great year. If you ever have questions, concerns, or need to speak to me, please call or visit me here. I look forward to seeing you on campus.
Ed Resnick, Ph.D.
