Nominations are being accepted for the School District of Washington and WINGS Teacher of the year award.

Anyone may submit a nomination for the School District of Washington and WINGS Teacher of the Year; however, if it’s someone other than the building principal, a letter of support from the principal is to be included with the nomination.

The principal and/or person submitting the nomination must include a statement in 300 words or less why they believe the educator they are nominating should be selected as WINGS Teacher of the Year.

Specific examples should be cited, such as the educator’s methods for meeting student needs, desire for professional growth, community involvement, dedication to the teaching profession, and rapport with students, parents and staff. Include the educator’s name, school name, subject area, grade level and years of experience.

Superintendent Dr. Lori VanLeer and a committee will review the nominations and submit up to 10 to the WINGS Board for final selection. The nominees will be announced at the end of the year program. This will allow more individuals to be recognized. The recipient will be announced at the opening ceremonies for the 2018-19 school year.

Nominations should be sent to the building principal by April 25.

The WINGS Teacher of the Year will be eligible for the Missouri Regional Teacher of the Year.

Students at Washington High School and Washington Middle School participated in a memorial to remember and honor victims of shootings during school on Wednesday, March 14.

It was the students’ way of honoring and recognizing the victims of mass shootings at schools, most recently at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., on Feb. 14, where 17 people were killed.

“About 150 of our students participated in a peaceful memorial/reflection event on campus in response to victims of school violence,” said Washington High School Principal Dr. Kelle McCallum. “The students who participated went to the gym and sat quietly on the floor as each victim’s name was read. At no time was anything political or associated with gun control read. The event lasted about 17 minutes and all students went back to class. We thank all of our students for the way they conducted themselves.”

A similar event took place at the middle school in the cafeteria.

“The event was optional and 100 percent student led. The only role that Washington Middle School played was to make sure our students had a safe and secure place to meet,” said Washington Middle School Principal Ron Millheiser. “The event was simply respectful silence lasting for a peaceful 17 minutes. Following the gathering, the students returned to class. I’m very proud of the kindness shown by our entire student body.”

Pictures from the event at Washington High School are below.


Freshman students in Kelly Wood’s English classes at Washington High School put together a poster walk in the West Wing cafeteria on Monday, March 12.
The topic of research for the students was to celebrate people who model toughness, bravery, courage and perseverance.

Each of the freshman students spent a class period with the WHS students in the transition room with life skills students as a way to understand how people with special needs exemplify GRIT every day and understand the joy of life in the face of adversity. 

The students displayed their research posters and GRIT subjects to the life skills students.  

“My students really came away from the experience with a positive impact and wrote about what they learned,” Wood said. “One student, Allison Meyer, asked if we could include the transition students in our GRIT project, so this is how the invitation for the poster walk became an event.

“Also, one of my students invited her grandfather to speak to our class. Many of the students have wonderful stories about how their grandparents or great grandparents fought in wartime and made an impact. The book we read, “Night” by Elie Wiesel, was the literary focus and non-fiction example of GRIT.”

Photos from the poster walk are below.
