Principal's Newsletter

  • Welcome to Washington!

    Posted by Jon Vogel on 8/23/2018

    On behalf of the staff, I would like to welcome you to Washington Junior High School. At WJHS our goal is to create an active, engaging learning environment where every student develops a love for learning and the tools to become a lifelong learner. I am honored to work with a staff that is dedicated to creating learning environments where students are encouraged to learn and grow. WJHS teachers are devoted to their professional growth and development. Our students experience a multitude of successes in the classroom, on the playing field and on the stage. In addition, our students are actively involved in numerous clubs that suit all interests.


    Your involvement as a parent is an essential part of your child’s middle school experience and contributes to the overall school culture of WJHS. In this spirit, the staff and I look forward to working with you and your child throughout the year. Collaboration among students, teachers and parents is an essential key to the true success of a school community. Throughout the year we will keep students and parents informed through this website, Talk 203 messages and our Twitter account. Parents are also encouraged to remain actively involved through activities like Home and School Volunteer opportunities, Parent-Teacher conferences, field trip chaperones, open houses, athletic events, concerts and more!


    Please join me in making this a fantastic year for all. We are glad that you and your child are here!

Strategic Blueprint

  • District 203’s FOCUS 2020 Strategic Blueprint

    Posted by Superintendent Dan Bridges on 6/27/2014
    FOCUS 2020 is the strategic plan for comprehensive improvement between 2014 and 2020, designed in response to community feedback, best practice, and a vision for the future. Ultimately, this blueprint will advance the fulfillment of the district’s mission.
    FOCUS 2020’s foundation is the Future Focus Community Engagement process that occurred over the course of a year where hundreds of members from across the community provided feedback to the district leadership regarding areas such as facilities, finances, measuring student success, and programs of study. Learn more about Future Focus by clicking on the specific “Quick Link” to the left of this text.
    The Blueprint includes four “Strategic Focus” areas, namely to:
    1. Design and implement effective practices that promote learning experiences for all.
    2. Foster a high-performance culture focused on student learning.
    3. Steward resources effectively to promote student learning.
    4. Effective communication and community relations.
    Each Strategic Focus then establishes “Commitments.” These commitments are what the district leadership pledges to accomplish within a distinct timeframe. Each commitment then includes a detailed “Action Plan” which will be accessible by the public upon final draft.
    District administrators provided an update on Blueprint Commitments to the Board of Education at the July 27, 2015 meeting.  To watch that presentation, please click here
