Campbellton Rocks 2017-18

Campbellton News


A reminder that the School District of Washington will be closed Monday, Aug. 21, for the total solar eclipse.

Each student will be coming home with eclipse glasses and an informational flyer on proper usage of the eye wear when viewing the eclipse. 

Should your student arrive home with only the glasses, the informational document can be found on the attached link below or by clicking here.

Please know that some sources are stating that taking a picture of the eclipse with a cell phone may damage the internal parts of the phone. 

Also, if your child is planning on attending the City of Washington's Total Solar Eclipse event at the fairgrounds, it is advisable for them to bring their own eclipse glasses, as the supply available at the event may be limited.  

More information about the City of Washington’s eclipse events can be be found on the attached link below or by clicking here.


The School District of Washington held its opening ceremony for all staff members Friday, Aug. 11, at the C.J. Burger Theater at Washington High School.

Students return to the classroom for the 2017-18 school year on Tuesday, Aug. 15.

The theme of the opening ceremony was, “Back in Rhythm,” emphasizing getting back in rhythm for the new school year.  

Following the theme, some staff members showed off their talents with singing and dancing performances during the ceremony.

Superintendent Dr. Lori VanLeer gave her annual back to school message to the staff. Board of Education Vice President John Freitag also addressed the staff. The district employs over 700 teachers and staff members.

Also speaking were Campbellton Elementary Principal Jennifer Meyer on behalf of WINGS Educational Foundation and South Point Elementary Principal Aimee Harty on behalf of the United Way.

Additionally, Dawn Martin, secretary at Augusta Elementary, was named the WINGS 2017 Support Staff Person of the Year. See the photo below.

It was an eventful summer of traveling and sightseeing for a family of four students and two employees in the School District of Washington.

Mitch and Molly (Soete) Figas, along with their four children; Ingrid, Margaret, Simon and Kathryn, hit the road and visited eight national parks and a national recreational area.

Mitch is a physical education teacher at Washington Middle School. Molly is a home bound instructor for the district. Ingrid (eighth grade) and Margaret (seventh grade) both attend Washington Middle School. Simon (fifth grade) and Kathryn (third grade) both attend Campbellton Elementary.

Simon’s fourth grade teacher last school year at Campbellton Elementary, Angie Hopkins, gave her students an opportunity to obtain a pass for free admission to national parks by completing a project, which Simon did.

As a result, Simon got the pass, which gave the entire Figas family free admission to the parks.

Over a three-week span during the summer, the Figas family drove 5,400 miles (Mitch drove every mile) to visit the national parks.

National parks that the Figas family visited were Arches, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands, Bryce Canyon and Zion in Utah, Grand Canyon and Petrified Forest in Arizona and Joshua Tree in California. They also visited Glen Canyon National Recreational Area on the Utah and Arizona border.

Each Figas child had their favorite park. Simon’s favorite was Glen Canyon National Recreational Area. Ingrid liked Bryce Canyon the best. Margaret enjoyed Canyonlands the most. Kathryn’s favorite was Grand Canyon.

The Figas kids are no strangers to traveling. Since 2011, they have been to 43 states and nine Canadian Provinces.

The Figas family displays the maps of the national parks they visited over the summer with the pass that allowed them access. Front row, from left, are Kathryn, Simon and Margaret. Back row, from left, are Ingrid, Mitch and Molly.

The Total Solar Eclipse will occur on Monday, August 21, 2017. 

Due to recent statements issued by MODOT and the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department, and after meeting with our local transportation provider and Washington emergency management personnel regarding the possible number of visitors making their way to Franklin county and surrounding counties on this day, the School District of Washington will be closed on Monday, August 21. 

The event is to conclude precisely during our elementary dismissal times and thus our buses could be significantly delayed. By law, kindergarten and first grade students must have an adult present at their bus stops upon drop off; traffic congestion could create an issue in that regard for parents, and such delays impact both our elementary and secondary routes. 

Due to the unknowns pertaining to this once in a lifetime event, it is impossible for us to predict what may happen; therefore, we agree with our local emergency management and transportation personnel regarding “erring on the side of caution.” 

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We will continue using the Total Solar Eclipse as a learning opportunity in our classrooms with lessons and other activities leading up to and proceeding the event.

Safety solar eclipse glasses will still be available for students to take home for viewing the eclipse. We strongly encourage parents to go over the safety information with their kids. We apologize for any confusion on this matter and thank you for your cooperation. 

We will make up this missed school day on Friday, May 18.
