There will be a playground work day on July 13th at the elementary school! We will start around 8 AM. The hope is to spruce up the playground! We are inviting anyone to come join us. Participants are invited to bring any paint brushes, basic tools (hammer, drill), rags–anything that might help with the clean-up. Please come join us and support Washburn Elementary!

Fun Day 2019

The annual school “Fun Day” for Pre-K-5th grades was recently held under ideal weather conditions.  Students participated in a variety of events, such as the traditional 3 Legged Relay, Egg and Spoon Relay and 50/100 Yard Dash, as well as some new additions like Corn Hole and Race to the Beach.  Other events included, Save the Whale, Chicken Stir Fry, Sponge Relay, Water Balloon Toss, Obstacle Course, Cake Pan Relay, and Face Painting. Steven Boody travelled north to provide the ever popular music.  A BBQ lunch of burgers & hot dogs was provided.

A big thanks goes out to all the volunteers who make the event possible.

Trip to Loring Military Heritage Center

On June 5th, Ms. Leach’s American Studies I and II classes traveled to Loring Military Heritage Center for a tour and presentation by Mr. Ray Hildebrand and Mr. Matt Cole. The students enjoyed learning more about Aroostook County’s exciting part in our nation’s history. Thanks for having us again this year!
