Mrs. Mandese’s Oath to Washington Oak School I promise to work each day in the best interest of the students at Washington Oak. I believe all students are capable of learning at high levels and I will work to ensure each child’s success. I will not give up on a child or family, within the Coventry community. I will strive to inspire my colleagues to reach their highest level of success. I will continue to grow my practice each day, be reflective to feedback and never stop learning. I will continue to develop the most impactful teaching strategies, which help students reach their highest potential. I will work to ensure students and staff enjoy coming to our school each day and are highly engaged in learning. I will spend time in classrooms getting to know students and learning alongside them. I will smile and exude happiness each day I walk into these doors.It is about the kids, every day! 😊I promise to follow this oath for the students, educators, and community, here in Coventry.
I cannot believe summer went by so quickly and we are almost back into the school year! I am thrilled to be back this year at Washington Oak, working with this amazing group of students, teachers and families. Please find some important information below:
School begins on August 30th for students in grades 1-5.
Kindergarten students will begin school on Tuesday, September 5th
Preschool will begin on August 31st
The school day runs from 9:05-3:35
Students may enter the building between 8:45am-9:05am, through the gym doors.
If you are picking up your child, please wait in the dismissal line (by the gym doors), with a valid ID at 3:35pm, so you can sign out your child For the first three days of school, please write a note if your child will be picked up at the end of the school day.
Students riding the bus home will be dismissed by their classroom teachers. We will have a new paper form for emergency information.
There will no longer be "pink cards" for families to complete. You will receive a paper emergency care card, which will come home with students on the first day. Please complete and return this form - we will make copies for the school nurse and classroom teacher.
All beginning-of-the-year forms are on the website, for you to print if you misplace a copy.
Our website has a lot of information - If you have questions, please make sure to watch the calendar, principal blog and important updates throughout the school year.
