It is that time again to help out with the Indian Creek Nature Center's Nature Noel.  The event is: 

Saturday, December 1, 2018 from 9:00 AM – 1 PM at Indian Creek's Amazing Space located on Otis Rd SE 

They are looking for students to help with carrying purchased items to shopper's cars.  This time can be counted as volunteer hours for National Honors Society or other organizations who value service.  Preferred shifts are from 8:45 to 11:15 and 11 to 1:15.   

Please see or email Mrs. Bernstein at to let her know of your interest.  

This is “Plan Your Path” week, a time when students can get information and help with planning for life after high school. Each day will have a different focus – trades, career planning, college, and military. Juniors and seniors who stop at one of the “Plan Your Path” events this week or visit their counselor for assistance with career planning will be entered in a drawing for college and career gear. Check out the display case in the main foyer to see just a few of the prizes! Staff and students are also encouraged to wear college, career, and military shirts all week. Follow the counselors on Twitter at @CWRCounseling for updates. 

Today’s focus is on the career paths of our staff. All staff are encouraged to share their story with students because they each took a different route to get to Washington. Some people went to college to become teachers and started working here right away, while many others had a variety of different jobs, college majors, and life experiences prior to becoming a Warrior. Ask other adults in your life about their career path too – you might be surprised what you learn! 


iJAG is having a donation drive for the Cedar Valley Humane Society to get cleaning supplies like Clorox wipes and paper towels.  For more information on items to donate find the donation boxes in the front office or library.  The donation drive runs until December 14th. 


Do you like to cook or have you thought about being a chef?
