Principal's Message

Hello Washington Families!

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2020-21 school year at Washington Elementary School!  If you are a new family at Washington, WELCOME.  Our school year will start with Phase One: Virtual Academy.  Our teachers and staff are committed to create a nurturing and academically challenging environment for all children. We look forward to working together to make this year memorable and successful for all students.  


We invite all families to be involved with your child's education. There are many volunteer opportunities like field trips and classroom support when we are given the green light.  Please remember when adults are invited back on campus, it is district policy that all parents need to complete an application and TB screening questionnaire prior to volunteering. 


Our PTA is very active and needs volunteers to make our events and fundraisers a success. Our PTA funds school field trips, art classes, family events and so much more! Please contact our PTA President, Vanessa Dodd, at (818) 294-2822 and sgwashingtonpta@gmail.com to get involved.

The new Washington PTA website can be located at https://washington-elementary-school-pta.square.site/    If you would like to help in any capacity, purchase items or find out about upcoming school events, please go to the PTA website for more information.  


I feel honored to be your Principal.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any concerns at dunville_s@sgusd.k12.ca.us or (626) 282-3926.  Our Office Manager, Carly Yoshitani, can answer any of your questions. Check our school calendar on this website for more information on school events. 


Phase III for TK-2 starts on April 6th and for 3-5th grades on April 19th. Please remember PBIS: We are KIND. We are SAFE. We are RESPONSIBLE.
