Principal's Message for February 6, 2023

Hello Pates,

              We held our annual FW Science Fair this past Thursday.   Thank you to Mrs. Cole, our Science Fair advisor, for organizing and spear-heading this event.  Special thanks to the Clovis West team and AP students who came over to the Fort to judge our Science Fair projects.  Congratulations to the following students who qualified to move forward to compete at the Clovis West Area Science Fair:  Quinn B., Elle B., Audrey C., Kengsu K., Emma L., Juliana M., Lucia R., Kambys T., Lilly T., and Adella W.  Way to go, Pates!

              Also, congratulations to our Fort Washington cheerleaders!  All three of our pep and cheer teams performed at Clovis West Spirit Night on Monday.  Their routines are spectacular!  It is evident our Pates were dedicated in learning their stunts and routines to showcase.   Our Competition Pep and Competition Cheer teams competed on Saturday at the Clovis West Pep and Cheer Showcase.   Both teams earned SUPERIOR ratings and a 1st place finish in both of their divisions!  Pates are GREAT!

While we had planned to celebrate our Pates at our 2nd Quarter Academic Awards on Friday, we did not anticipate putting this celebration on hold due to the unscheduled lockdown of our school.   With quick communication between Clovis West and Fort Washington, we swiftly brought our students indoors and secured our campus, including our Fort Washington parents and families who were present for our academic awards ceremony.  Our Fort Washington staff implemented the procedures for the lockdown quickly and kept our students calm throughout the duration.  For more information about our school safety procedures and resources to talk with your child about Friday‚Äôs lockdown, please visit our parent safety website at:  https://www.cusd.com/SchoolSafety.aspx.


Mrs. Hashimoto
