Washington Elementary Named as School of Recognition
The Wisconsin Title 1 School of Recognition is an honorary award for schools that have
been successful in educating students from low-income families. State Superintendent,
Tony Evers, states, “The staff and administration of these schools are committed to
breaking the link between poverty and low academic achievement through rigorous
programming and attention to student needs. Many positive educational opportunities
exist for students across the state.”
This year, Washington Elementary is recognized for their students’ achievement as a
Beating the Odds School. This will be the tenth year they have been recognized and the
ninth consecutive year that Washington Elementary School has received this recognition.
Principal of Washington School, Susan Martin, shared “At Washington, we believe that
no significant learning can take place without significant relationships. These
relationships ground our students for academic success. The educators at Washington are
passionate individuals who work diligently to meet the academic and emotional needs of
every child- we are truly a ‘school family.’”
Tony Evers will host an awards program at the State Capitol on March 14 to further
recognize Wisconsin Title 1 School of Recognition award recipients. Washington School
will receive a plaque and $500 for use in their school.
Congratulations to everyone at Washington Elementary on this special honor.
