The building and grounds to Washington Center are quite spacious which gives way to many opportunities for outdoors activities and indoor collaboration. They seem to take advantage of the space they have and feel lucky to have it. Mr. Goldfuss, the relatively new principal, is encouraged with the new families coming to his school. And soon, it will be even better! And there’s certainly plenty of room and always a warm welcome for new students.
I was able to capture a short video of one part of the day that students must absolutely love…I know I would have! Their music program is fortunate enough have several classroom sets of musical instruments, including a classroom set of hand chimes. This is what I love about FWCS: they understand the importance of the arts and find ways to bring these opportunities to all students. While probably few of these students at Washington Center will go on to be world class musicians, the skills and the rewards of learning these instruments will stay with them forever. When I heard the chimes being played, it reminded me of my time in music class – each student playing his or her part to form an amazing musical sound. Sitting in the middle of that has to warm one’s heart and lift one’s spirit.
Thank you for a great morning and a wonderful start to the week.
