We have started our Accelerated Reading Program here at Washington. Fifty-nine percent of students have taken quizzes already and we are aiming for 100% participation. Prizes are going to be won! Students are only able to take quizzes while at a district school, but from home, the public library, etc., the student or the parent can login to Home Connect to check progress. Please check out the AR page on our website for more info.
Not only does Habitat for Humanity build homes for people in need, but they also build a brighter future, support stronger family ties and foster community relationships. Habitat for Humanity is a great example of a benevolent organization that a Washington Student would admire. This past week, Washington Gifted Middle School students bonded together as a community to collectively create a float for display in the Morton Pumpkin Festival Parade. During art classes, students took 3-D to a new level! WGMS students created a 3-dimensional house in the style of Habitat for Humanity Homes. (Click on headline to read more!)
Due to system upgrades over the summer and our efforts to move toward a single sign on system, we have a new Compass login format/password that takes effect for both students and parents. The student’s new format is: 2-digit grad year + first letter of first name + first letter of last name + 6 digit Student ID. So a 2019 graduate named John Doe with student number 012345 would be: 19JD012345. Their passwords are the 6-digit date of birth MM/DD/YY (ie, 123101). A parent’s new login is the same as the student’s with a p at the end. An example would be: 19JD012345p. The password is peoria150. We apologize for any inconvenience that this has caused and thank you for your patience during this transition. The new login/password format is effective immediately.
