Principal's Corner

Welcome Back!

I am looking forward to an amazing year here at Washburn Elementary/Middle School. Throughout the summer we have worked hard to increase the rigor in our curriculum, upgrade our technology throughout the building, and change our schedule to allow for more time in the arts.

I firmly believe that these changes combined with the continued emphasis on cultural and environmental education continue to make Washburn a leader in education throughout the state and the nation.

However, we cannot achieve any of our goals without a great level of support from our parents. I challenge all parents to become more involved this year, whether it be increased communication with your child’s teacher, attending performances, volunteering in the school, or simply making sure your child does his or her homework every night and attends school every day!

I look forward to working with all of you this year. If you have any questions or would simply like to talk about the exciting things going on in our school, please do not hesitate to contact me at any time.

Mr. Krause
