Parent and community involvement in the Washington School District is a vital force contributing to making a difference in the lives of our children. Parents help to plan activities such as recreational events, field trips, fundraisers, and dances, just to name a few. There are various committees that may serve as avenues for more members of the community to help strengthen the opportunities that our children have to be successful. Additionally, the Parent-Faculty Organization provides a forum for communication and enhanced interaction among the adults that impact the lives of our students.
The Washington School District is grateful for the accomplishments and efforts put forth every day by the Prexie Pride Foundation, an organization that strives to enhance community, corporate, and alumni support for the Washington School District.
