Kindergarteners Growing More than Their Futures

Crimson View Elementary

Kindergarteners Growing More than Their Futures

While most farmers are preparing for harvest season, these kindergarten students at Crimson View Elementary are just planting their carrot crops. They are getting ready for their Thanksgiving feast, featuring crops grown by the students in their school. As part of the STEM initiative at Crimson View, the students have a greenhouse featuring opportunities for every grade to grow both traditional and hydroponic plants. They even have live fish helping to fertilize the water along with geothermal and solar energy to maintain the necessary environment for the sprouts. Check out a photo gallery on our Facebook page.

Superintendent Bergeson Welcomes Back Parents and Students

Office of the Superintendent

Dear Parents and Students,

As Superintendent of Washington County School District, I am very excited for the start of another successful school year and welcome back the many new and returning students and staff at each of our schools.

We’ve just completed our centennial celebration for the District and as we move into our 101st year, please remember these are pivotal times in the history of our community and nation. I encourage you to find ways to become involved in your schools and community. There are many extra-curricular activities offered at our schools. Research shows the connection between student academic achievement and positive character development gained through the association with these teams, clubs and activities.

Previous Superintendent Max Rose Passes Away

Previous Superintendent Max Rose Passes Away

It is with heavy hearts and thankful minds that we recognize the service and life of Max Rose - past superintendent of the Washington County School District.

Max was hired by the school district on July 1, 2003. He retired on June 30, 2013. During his tenure as superintendent Max was often found in his superintendents office tutoring Washington County school District students in math. He loved education. Max not only knew everyone by their name, he knew their parents and grandparents. He was a friend to everyone! He began his teaching career in 1972 as a professor of mathematics and science at Dixie College. He served as the chairman of the Dixie regional medical center governing board and participated actively in many community events.

We here at WCSD appreciated Max's leadership, friendship and his love for the students of Washington County. We extend our condolences, love and thoughts to Max's family and the Washington County community during this time.
