I would like to extend a warm welcome to both our new and returning students and their families. Our entire staff is looking forward to an exciting and productive new school year.
I am happy to announce that the entire administrative team will be returning for another year at Washington. I believe Dr. Erica Donahue, Mr. Jeff Speckels, and Mrs. Nathania Chaney- Aiello are some of the best Assistant Principals in the district and I want to encourage you to take advantage of their assistance. Mr. Speckels is responsible for 11th grade students, and Dr. Donahue will continue to work with the students who are now in 12th grade. Mrs. Chaney-Aiello will be handing all 10th grade related activities and issues, and Mr. Speckels, Dr. Donahue and Mrs. Chaney-Aiello will split responsibility for 9thth grade students.
Communication will again be a top priority for my administrative team. We are committing to returning all phone calls and e mails within 24 hours.
We are proud to be offering three new course selections this year: A.P. Physics C, A.P. Computer Science and Culinary Arts. The Laptop Academy will now serve 9th grade students at the Honors and College Prep levels and will be offered to juniors for the first time this year. The Engineering Pathway program, Project Lead the Way, is continuing to be offered and is comprised of two sequential courses for sophomores and juniors: Introduction to Design and Principals of Engineering. Both of these courses qualify for A-G subject requirement credit from U.C. Students taking Introduction of Design will receive “f” credit necessary for applying to State and U.C. universities, and students taking Principals of Engineering will receive “g” credit. Washington is again offering 0 period P.E. for sophomores to accommodate their often crowded schedules.
The primary goal of my administrative team is to support the academic interactions between students and teachers, and to create and support systems that will help students achieve their academic goals. I can’t emphasize enough that the administrative team, and the counselors at Washington are here to be of service to students and families of the Washington community. All students should leave high school with the necessary skills and information to pursue their post graduate dreams.
I feel extremely fortunate to be Principal of Washington High School. I am looking forward to the new school year and working hard for the Washington school community. I would like to extend an invitation to all parents and guardians to visit the campus and to find ways to get involved. Welcome back, Huskies. I know 2016-2017 is going to be a tremendous school year.
