Weekly Newsletter – September 2nd

Welcome to Washington Global or Welcome Back!

We are so excited to begin this new school year. We have a lot of great things planned for our students and are happy to have you as part of our Washington Global Family. This newsletter will be sent home weekly and will have updates and important information about things going on around the school.

Labor Day Holiday

There is no school on Monday, September 5th due to the Labor Day Holiday.

After School Activities

Rowing and Orchestra start on Tuesday September 6th! Please call the front office (202-796-2415) for more information or to enroll your child.

Back to School Night

Back to School Night will be held on Tuesday, September 13th from 5:30 to 6:30 pm. This is a great opportunity to see the school, meet your student’s teachers and learn more about their classes.

Progress Reports and Online Gradebook Access

Students will be given a progress report every other week as a way to help students and parents keep track of grades. The first progress report will be sent home next Friday, September 9th. In the upcoming weeks we will also send home more information about how students and parents can access the online gradebook to track student progress from home.

School Supplies and Preparedness

School begins at 8:00 and it is important that all students arrive by that time. In addition, please make sure that your child arrives each day with a binder, pencils, paper and any other materials that have been requested by their teacher.
