Green Team 2017-2018

Congratulations to Washington’s 2017-2018 Green Team!
Francesca Arnold, Damian Artiga, Dorian Artiga, Kylie Cho, Nicholas Collins, Leilani Coyazo, Bryce Dix, Julia Eastman, Keely Goold, Isaiah Johnson, Zara Kumar, Lauren Moskowitz, Morgan Robertson, Reese Spalding, Joaquin Stauffer, Sophie Wildenhain
Our new Green Team for the 2017-2018 school year is off and running! With the help of Washington moms Kathleen Jacecko and Christine Wilkas, the Green Team will be taking on several projects, including: campus cleanups, helping fellow students sort their trash at lunch, establishing an “idle-free zone” in front of the school to save fuel and improve air quality, and petitioning local restaurants to adopt eco-friendly practices.
The Green Team will also once again play a key role in Washington’s Earth Day Fair, coming up in April 2018. Stay tuned for much more on that! Working together, this team of sixteen environmentally-conscious 4th and 5h graders will be working hard to raise environmental awareness on campus and ensure that Washington Elementary fulfills its commitments as a California Green Ribbon School.
We hope you will stop by the Green Team bulletin board in the main hall to learn more about environmental topics and green happenings on campus. And if you spot our Green Team members sporting their green bandanas, be sure to say hi!

Running Club 2017

One lap is 0.2 miles so 5 laps is one mile.
The END time is now 8:10am (changed from 8:05am) giving more time for the kids to log some laps! The Felton Gate does not open until 7:45am so if your child wants to be on time for warm up exercises and the first lap, please enter through the main entrance near the library on Running Club days.
We highly encourage parents to participate by running/walking with their kids. Kids love to see the parents out there, it’s a great way to get some exercise and it’s good bonding time with your child! We can also use parent volunteers to cheer on the runners, set up and manage the course, scan laps, help coordinate the end of the year party and more.
You can show up at Running Club and fill out a form on site, but a parent must be present to sign the form. Contact our Running Club Chairs at if you have questions, for more information or to volunteer. 
To track your child(ren)’s laps:
2.    Enter the Runner ID which is the bar code numbers located on your child’s Running Club badge.   
To login using Apple iPad or iPhone:
Download free StrideTrack® app from ITunes App Store. In the input box, enter the student Runner ID.
Please remind your child to return their lap card to the alphabetical pouches (by first name) on the fence after EVERY running club. Do not bring them home or store in backpacks. We’ve had a few gone missing, and we are going to charge $1 for lost cards from this point forward. Thanks in advance for your understanding.
A special thanks to the following people/organizations for their generous support of Washington’s Running Club:
  • Beach Cities Health District for granting us $800 to support our efforts to go electronic and our needs as a whole.
  • David Chun (Isabelle’s Dad) and 7-11 for free Slurpee coupons to be awarded to the top 10 runners for October.
  • Wienerschnitzel – Dylan and McKenzie Jamrog’s Aunt Carol Ecker donated over 200 ice cream coupons to the store at 4607 Artesia Blvd in RB. The winning classroom’s running club members will receive one coupon for that month. Please disregard the expiration date – she will still honor the coupons!
