Home and School
Membership:All parents and/or guardians of WJHS students and all current staff are members of the WJHS Home & School and of the Naperville District 203 General Home & School Association.
Mission:The mission of the Washington Junior High Home and School Association is to encourage collaboration among students, families, staff, and community members to fulfill the District 203 mission and to enhance the school experience of each student in the school by fostering relationships among these groups and initiating/ supporting programming that aims to achieve these goals.
Fundraising:The only fundraiser at WJHS, and at all of the junior high schools in District 203, is the Magazine Drive held at the beginning of the school year. We depend on the revenue from the Magazine Drive to help fund many programs, which enhance your student’s experience at WJHS. Some of these programs include: the annual school musical, 8th grade celebration, student awards and recognition, field trips, sports uniforms, student directory, school supplies and other improvements at WJHS. Please encourage your student to participate in our Magazine Drive!
