More Fun Ahead


We have so much going on right now. We are full steam ahead on planning for fun events to wrap up our year while we’re also beginning the end of year testing window. We are proud of our students, teachers, and parents have endured this year to make learning and growing possible for our students and we have some fun planned to celebrate those efforts! But school is even more importantly about outcomes – how can we measure (although I’ll admit measuring growth isn’t always perfect) our students’ progress. Parents and caregivers – please talk with your students about doing their best on these last assessments will help you and our school understand how individual students and groups of students learned this year. Then talk to them about how they can Rock the Red to close out this year as we all celebrate each other at our Rock the Red Parade! Details are below.

Farewell Nurse Tuitt!

Nurse Tuitt served her last day this week at Watkins. She is taking the next step in her career and we are so grateful for her service to our students. Our partners at Children’s National, who staff school nurses, have a plan for full nurse coverage through the end of the year. We will also continue our asymptomatic testing with our new nurse to ensure our commitment to health and safety.

More details to come – parents and caregivers, please save the date!

5th Grade Promotion – June 18

The students and families have spoken (through our survey) and they want an in-person promotion! Our 5th grade survey revealed strong demand for an in-person and virtual event. 9am for in-person and 1pm for virtual on June 18. Thanks to the 5th grade team for organizing an important celebration for an important event!
