Principal's Welcome

  • Dear Washington Families,

    Welcome to Washington! Home of the Timberwolves. Through the creation of a stimulating environment, Washington staff, with the help of parents and community, challenge and support students in discovering, developing and sharing their abilities and talents, as well as nurture an appreciation for others’ abilities and gifts.

    Our goal is to help make sure every child feels a sense of belonging while at Washington. Together, children, staff and parents make Washington an outstanding place to grow as learners.

    I am extremely grateful and honored to serve in the School District of Wauwatosa and community and I look forward to working with you and your children alongside our amazing and dedicated staff at Washington. Ensuring a safe, positive learning environment is a top priority for me. Please feel free to contact me with questions, comments, or concerns. I am here to help. Thank you for supporting our school.


    Joe Russell
