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.
Thank you for attending Open House this week! We had an excellent turn out.
Here are a few updates for the week:
*Please have your child bring in their summer reading log this week (last possible day is Thursday). This way, we have a chance to win $2,000 to buy more books for the school! If you need a copy of the reading log, please click on the link below. Summer Reading Log
*WPRI Radio is interviewing Washington Oak educators and one student on our new structure at recess! They will be visiting the school on Tuesday to observe recess for grades 4 & 5, as well as conduct interviews. It is such an honor to be chosen for this opportunity! Our supervisory assistants who help run the games, organize recess activities and support our children, make this possible each day!
*Our first PTA meeting is on Tuesday night at 6:30pm. I hope you can attend.
*Mrs. Jacquard and I began to develop a new organization for indoor recess, because I am sure those cold winter days will be here before we know it! I have just purchased many games, puzzles, coloring books and activities, to help keep students engaged during the independent time. If you have any extra games, puzzles or coloring books you would like to donate, please send them in. We appreciate it!
*Washington Oak Hearing Screening will begin on Friday, September 15th
*Remember to send in those yellow wallaby slips with your child when they are being respectful, safe, and responsible. Please date the back and let us know what they did to earn the slip.
*If you have not returned your child's green emergency sheet, please do so. This is our most immediate way to contact you in case of an emergency.
