Principal's Message for the Week of 11-11-19

Dear Pates and Fort Families,

Fort Washington has always valued the service our Veterans in the armed forces.  As part of our appreciation, we invited our community service men and women to join our Friday Morning Announcements to be acknowledged for their commitment and service to our country to provide us the freedom that we have today.  It is always humbling to see our Pates come together to show gratitude to those who bravely serve our country to allow us to our freedoms.  With respect, honor, and gratitude, THANK YOU VETERANS! 

Our annual Thanksgiving Luncheon for the students is on Thursday, November 21, 2019 where our Fort Washington staff will be serving our Pates a turkey and gravy lunch for those who participate in having hot lunch.  We also have our 32nd annual Turkey Trot run coming up on Friday, November 22, 2019!  Permission slips for participation have been sent home last week.  This is a fun event for students in Kindergarten through sixth grade.  We are seeking parent volunteers for each intersection of our Turkey Trot course through our neighborhood, and parent volunteers for the water stations and apple station.  If you are able to help volunteer for this event, please contact Mrs. Nijskens (formerly, Ms. Castello) or Mrs. Guffey.

Looking forward to a fun-filled November!  Pates are GREAT!
