Welcome to Washington School!
Washington K-1 Elementary Get Out and Walk Day
Wednesday, October 4 was GET OUT and WALK DAY at Washington K-1 Elementary School! This school-wide event was held in conjunction with National Walk to School Day. Students, staff, and community members attending this event walked nearly one mile around the block, which was led by a police and firefighters’ escort through the streets! Washington Physical Education Teacher, Miss Angie Ellis coordinated this big event to help bring more awareness to the importance of developing healthy habits, particularly becoming more physically active and to also build a sense of community. Many community members and groups assisted with this event including Tiffin Police Department, Tiffin Fire/Rescue Division, several Tiffin University student athletes and coaches, Sentinel’s Public Safety Class, Alumni of Tiffin Citizens’ Academy, TCS Administrators, Mr. Barber, Mr. Boes, Mrs. Losey, and Mrs. Michelle Tuite, School Counselor Suzanne Reinhart and her therapy dog Kennedy, and a few other special guests! Tiffin City Mayor, Mayor Montz also attended this year's event as the special guest who briefly spoke to the students about how daily exercise and physical activity are important aspects in living a long healthy life and then officially kicked off the walk. As a memento of the walk and to also serve as a reminder to get out and get the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity every day, at the end of the walk, each student received a key chain with a walker and sneaker token! This was a super fun, memorable day for our school, staff, community members, and most importantly for our Washington students!
