40 years = Dedication

Janet Morewood

Janet Morwood’s name certainly fits this beloved 1st grade teacher of 40 years at Santa Clara Elementary. She is MORE…

More dedicated, more kind, and more unruffled than you can imagine. After being in the same classroom, same grade, and same school for over 40 years, she knows 6 and 7-year-olds very well! She is an amazing reading teacher. Consistently, almost all of her students reach benchmark by the end of the year. She has a way of getting her students to not just read, but to love reading! Her class is the top reading class for number of books read in the library year after year. She has loved and nurtured some of the most energetic students that have gone through our school. She has been, and continues to be, a mentor and friend to teachers both new and old. With a warm smile, a contagious laugh over 1st grade classroom antics, and a loving heart, Janet Morwood has been a blessing to hundreds of 1st grade students these past 40 years. Here’s to “more” yet to come.

Welcome Back Students and Parents

Larry Bergeson

larry bergesonDear Students and Parents,

It is with great pleasure that I say welcome back to school! I trust your time away, whether counted in days or weeks, has been enjoyable, renewing, adventurous and interwoven with fun and relaxation.

Students, you have wonderful opportunities ahead to make a difference in your life and the lives of your peers. Achieving your goals will take commitment and a willingness to do the work. To help you along the way, we have a talented and dedicated staff ready to assist you. Our staff, your hard work, along with informed parents and a community that is involved and values education, will help to put you well on your way to a successful future.

Parents, together we can make this the best school year yet, by making sure your children are in the classroom, focused on learning and celebrating success along the way. When our students succeed, we all succeed because of the contributions young minds can make to society and the communities in which they live. I hope to see you participating with your students in the schools. I wish everyone a year filled with academic achievements, and many fun, memorable experiences, while taking in all Washington County School District has to offer.

With warmest regards,


Larry Bergeson

We are so grateful to have you back as part of the Washington County School District family and hope you are looking forward to a great year ahead. Please know how much we appreciate your commitment and dedication to the children in our communities. The lyric in the attached song speaks of our dreams saying, “Who’d have thought they’d lead ya, back here where we need ya…we always could spot a friend, welcome back.”
