What an exciting summer we have had! Our goal is to move from “Good to Great” and work diligently to increase student achievement, parent support, and community partnerships. Our school continues to grow and expand to meet the needs of our community, and we are happy about the numbers of wonderful families who choose to become a part of ours.
This year will be one of the most exciting to date. We are beginning our school year with “Men of Distinction” greeting students and parents as they enter on the very first day to the “red carpet” treatment. Our students and parents are stars and will be treated as such.
I would also like to encourage each of you to join our incredible PTA, and participate as much as your busy lives permit. Their district wide meetings will welcome you into the fold of this active school community. Get to know fellow parents and find out how you would like to be involved. We need your support in every aspect of our school community.
Our leadership team will always be around to speak informally and answer questions you might have. This year, Washington Rose Elementary School has set the stage for teamwork and continued success; your children are in the best of hands. They are important to us and will always remain our top priority. Please remember to encourage your child to read at home. Model good reading habits and get them excited about what you are reading and learning and your child will be sure to follow.

Washington Rose is Anchored in Success!
Students and staff dressed as superheros at the first Parent University of the year, hosted by Washington Rose Elementary School. Parents were invited to attend a variety of workshops, shop at the free gently used boutique and students took home free books, and sported tattoos from JJ the Clown!
Ms. Martinelli's fourth grade bilingual class is writing silly stories, and we all can't wait to read them! Ms. Galan's second grade bilingual class is sharing how they celebrate their vocabulary words and use them in a paragraph. They also write the definitions and illustrate them.
Dawn Wilkes was honored Saturday, May 13th by the Long Island Youth Foundation for her service. The Washington Rose family came out to show their support for Ms. Wilkes.
