Washington Oak is in the News!
Last school year, Washington Oak took part in a grant with Play Works to reshape our recess program. We were able to train our supervisory assistants and offer additional games and activities at recess. Because of this, we were highlighted by Play Works and Rhode Island Public Radio! Check out the story using the link below.
What's Happening In PE?
Mrs. Grosso had grade 3 students moving and grooving Halloween style this week! Students were rotating through gross motor stations, focusing on throwing, shuffling their body, moving on a slider and jumping. The Halloween themed music made it even more exciting!
What's Happening in Our Classrooms?
There is always lots of learning with a sprinkle of fun throughout the school day at Washington Oak! Check out the pictures below showing a fun event in Kindergarten, Mrs. Estrela teaching a math lesson in grade three, Kindergarten students in reading stations, Mrs. Lupino teaching a writing lesson and grade 5 students working on math independent stations.

The money raised from the school store is used to fund our safety patrol event and Wallaby prizes. On the last Friday of the month, students will be able to purchase items from the store using their Wallaby dollars. Cash will not be allowed on this day. We will start the school store in October. All dates are posted on our school calendar. LINK
