Second Quarter Building Reward
Our students at Washington Elementary have been working very hard to show their Trojan Traits. They have demonstrated Trojan Traits by being respectful, responsible, and safe through each area of our building. In order to recognize each students’ efforts second quarter, all students received a building reward of donuts and hot chocolate or milk on January 17th. This was made possible through the PBIS team at Washington and our PTO, who generously gave their time to deliver the treats to each room.
Each quarter two students from each classroom are nominated to receive the Trojan Superstar award. These students are chosen based upon their hard work of showing their Trojan Traits consistently and/or have worked very hard to improve their Trojan Traits. The Trojan Superstars for second quarter are listed in the photo below.

Weekly Ticket Rewards
Students are continuing to receive Trojan Trait tickets, which are gold tickets students earn for being respectful, responsible, or safe. For example: if a student is seen walking quietly through the hallway, a staff member may give them a ticket and say, “Thank you for being respectful of the other classrooms by walking quietly through the hallway”. Each week each class has a time and day where a staff member will bring in the PBIS cart, where students can turn in tickets for rewards. Students can choose to spend their tickets or save them for a bigger reward. We are thankful for the generosity of our staff, parents, PTO, and community members who have donated items to our cart! If you would like to donate new or gently used kid appropriate items, you may bring them to the Washington Elementary office: care of –

It has come to my attention that one of two students in the Fairfield Community School District is currently living under the poverty guidelines. That’s 50% of FCSD kids! While I do not know specifically which students are receiving assistance, I do know we have a high number of families who could use some help.
In an effort to help students, I have come up with the idea of a hygiene closet. The goal of the hygiene closet is to provide students, free of charge, items that cannot be purchased with Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) dollars.
I understand hygiene products are expensive to purchase, yet are necessary.
To sign up to receive bags, a parent or guardian must return a completed permission request form to me. Once the form has been returned, your child will be given a hygiene bag to take home. When these supplies are gone, your child will be able to order refills.
To re-order privately, students may log into their school google account and complete the reorder form in their google drive. Items will be discretely placed into the student’s locker. There is an option for parents to pick up the re-order from the school office instead of having student carry the items home. If students don’t wish to order refills online, they may stop by my room (FMS 108) and pick up items.
The ultimate goal is to have a hygiene closet, full of supplies, in all four FCSD buildings. As of right now, FMS will be the first building to begin distribution of supplies.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding the hygiene closet, please contact Lisa Greenig at or 641-472-5019 (FMS office number)
This community service project is provided by the generosity of your school staff, local businesses, service organizations, and community members. It is a joy to be able to share blessings with your family.
