    Hello Washington Open Community,

    Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!  I am so excited to be here as your new principal - it already feels like home. :)  I am looking forward to meeting each of you and your children throughout the year and getting to know this fabulous community.  If you are ever in the office or see me out around campus, please say "hi"!  

    :)  Heidi
