    Washington Elementary "School of Recognition" Honors from DPI
    Congratulations to the students, staff and families of Washington Elementary. Their hard work and dedication to student learning has resulted in Washington Elementary School earning a "2015-16 Title I School of Recognition" honor from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. Washington is one of 169 public schools in the state selected for this recognition. As a Title I school, Washington serves a significant percentage of economically disadvantaged students. Washington was identified as a "High-Progress School" for performing in the top 10% in reading and math and for closing achievement gaps of these student subgroups. 
    WUSD is proud of Washington's success! 
    A recognition ceremony hosted by DPI for all the recipients will be held at the State Capitol on March 14.  
    In Mr. Nelson's many years at Washington Elementary one thing had eluded him until now ... a win at book fair BINGO!!
    A very excited class cheered him on as Mr. Nelson held up to his promise to do somersaults across the room if he ever won.  The class was presented with a basket of scholastic books for the classroom library for their win, and a feeling that they were a little part of history in the making.
