Washington School Happenings

Ms. Almeida’s 4th and 5th period class were this year’s winners for the Achieve 3000 Read to Succeed contest!  Their remarkable literacy achievement makes Ms. Almeida extremely proud of them. From all the classes that completed Achieve3000 lessons over the contest period, her class completed the most. It's proven that the more lessons students complete, the greater their reading gains, and her students have built outstanding reading gains over the contest period.
