We need YOUR help to create the 20-21 WHS Monument yearbook. Please send us photos of school events, screenshots of your online classes, selfies in masks, anything that would represent how YOUR life looks right now. A yearbook is like a time capsule; it is meant to capture the moments of the school year AS THEY ARE. With the unique series of events that we've been through in the last few months, there have been new challenges for us to face, challenges that sometimes feel bigger than we can solve. But we are strong. We are resilient. We are a community that supports its members in a way that Cedar Rapids has done countless times before. Through floods, storms, and viruses, We Are... #All In. Download the Yearbook Snap app, add George Washington High School (Cedar Rapids, IA) and use the code: warriors Or email the yearbook staff at monumentstaff@gmail.comTogether, We Are going to make this yearbook the best one yet.


This year at Washington we are starting up a Science Research Club with the goal of students designing and executing original science research with the intention of competing in science fairs across the state of Iowa. This will provide an opportunity for students to research different scientific problems and come up with their own solution. They will create a project and a poster then will compete for scholarships and all expenses paid trips against other students from across the state of Iowa in the Spring Semester. It is a wonderful opportunity for our students and if anyone is interested they need to contact Mallory Wills or Chris Parrish!
