What's Happening at WO?
Washington Open is a parent-participation school that nurtures the whole child, offering a collaborative community that allows for a rich variety of hands-on, real-world learning opportunities inside and outside of the classroom. We balance academic, social, physical, and emotional needs, while encouraging creativity, curiosity, and a life-long love of learning. Washington Open students aim for their personal best.

The Giving Tree is a WO annual service project and an easy way for you to help families in our Washington Open and Santa Clara Unified School District community that need some extra help during the holiday season. Please visit the Giving Tree (located in the office hallway leading into the main office) and select a gift tag for a gift or gift card you would like to give. (If you select SCRIP, please purchase it at the Scrip table or use online Scrip no later than December 9.) Thank you in advance for all your generosity! Please return all Giving Tree gifts/gift cards by December 13, so they can be delivered to the families prior to the holiday break. Thank you!

Come sing with Barb in room 8 before school on Fridays at 8:10. Students of all ages, grownups and young siblings are welcome to join the fun. Come when you can and leave when you need to. We end when the whistle blows. It's a great way to begin your day!
If any adults want to purchase hot lunch, the cost is $4.00 per meal. Adult lunches cannot be charged to a student’s card. If you (adult) would like to set up an account, you may do so by bringing cash or a check to Teresa. If you want to just “pay as you go,” you can do that as well, but you must have exact change.
“Wanna Chat with Barbara?”
Here are the dates that Barbara will be available to chat with parents regarding whatever you’d like to talk about. These sessions will be held at 8:30AM in the staff lounge.
You can pay online for your child’s lunches with your credit card! You can also check your child’s balance any time. You can access the system by going to www.myschoolbucks.com. You will need to create an account in order to use this service. Also you will need your student’s ID number. Of course you can always come in to the office and put money in your child’s account by writing a check or using cash.
