Marker Recycling Returns!

Where there are kids, there are markers, and all markers eventually dry up. Unfortunately, they can’t be put in the recycling bin. But now, thanks to Crayola, they CAN be recycled.


Through Crayola’s ColorCycle marker recycling program, Washington Elementary students, staff and families can recycle ANY brand or type of marker, including old dry erase markers and highlighters. All we have to do is collect our old dried up markers, mail them to Crayola, and they will convert them into energy. So gather up all of your dried up old markers and drop them in our Marker Recycling Box, conveniently located in the hallway between the office and the library.


Remember, don’t toss ‘em, recycle ‘em!


Cultural Assembly – Dancing Storytellers: Indian Mythology and Me

In December, Washington students enjoyed the production “Dancing Storytellers: Indian Mythology and Me.” This was an enormously entertaining and sophisticated show that weaved rhythm song, gesture and facial expression into a dynamic exploration of Indian mythology and it’s connection to the world today.

Cultural assemblies like these are made possible by funds raised by PTA. Thank you for your continued support.



Project Unified

Project Unified was a huge success during the holiday season. The Redondo Beach Unified School District helped a record 60 families this year. All the families were extremely appreciative. THANK YOU to the Washington families who donated to this special cause.


[UPDATE] Book Fair 2016

Thanks to our enthusiastic readers and generous families at Washington, we sold almost $13,000 worth of books at our Scholastic Book Fair in December. That’s the most we have ever sold! This means we raised more than $6,000 Scholastic Dollars to buy books for the library and our classrooms. THANK YOU to all the volunteers and shoppers who made this event such a success. We are looking forward to the Spring Book Fair that will feature our friends from LA Liberia and other great books!
