Kindergarten Pre-Registration Is Here

The Johnston City CUSD #1 has set the dates for its Kindergarten pre-registration for the 2015 - 2016 school year. A census headcount will be taken at the Unit Office beginning January 26th. Parents should call the Unit Office with the name, address, and date of birth of their child. The phone number is (618) 983 - 8021.


Volleyball tryouts for 6th - 8th grade students will be held on January 21 and 22. Students CANNOT try out unless there is a current sports physical on file at the school.

Also proof of insurance (or a signed waiver) must be signed before participating in tryouts.

Ashleigh Rushing is the coach. There will be "shift" tryouts. On the 21st, 6th grade will have tryouts from 4:45pm - 6pm. Students MUST go home after school - they are NOT ALLOWED to stay at the school until 4:45pm. At 6pm, 7th and 8th grade students will have tryouts until 7:15pm.

On the 22nd, 6th grade tryouts will begin at 5pm and end at 6pm. Again, students are NOT ALLOWED to wait at the school, after school, until this time. Students MUST go home after school. At 6pm until 7pm, 7th and 8th graders will have their second day of tryouts.

Please call the school if you have any questions!

Congratulations to the Washington Junior High Dance Team for their first place in lyrical dance competition! They will be competing for a state title soon!

Beginning February 2, 2015, the cookie dough campaign begins. Washington School will be selling cookie dough tubs in order to raise funds for various school needs. Students are asked to try to sell at least one item. There will be prizes for some of the top selling students (such as food and cash prizes).

Attention students, parents and guardians:

It's COLD outside!!

Please dress appropriately:  socks, shoes, pants/jeans (no shorts), layer your shirts if needed, and most importantly, WEAR A COAT!

We have many students coming to school not wearing their coats.

The Marion Laborers Local Union recently donated many coats to Washington School. Involved in this wonderful donation was the Laborers M C. This 2014 Coats for Kids Run produced many coats available for our Washington School students! We also have hats and gloves. If you are in need of one of these items for your Washington student, please do not hesitate to contact the Washington School office or principal - we are anxious to help you stay warm!
