World Kindness Day is Monday, November 13!

To recognize World Kindness Day, the PTO will be selling copies of The Kindness Diaries by Leon Logothesis for $8.00, which is half off the cover price. In this biography Logothetis shares his experience circumventing the globe solely on kindness. Rather than using money of his own or accepting any money from others, Logothetis relies on the power of human connection. Through connecting with humans around the world, he finds people who invite him to share a meal, to fill the gas tank of his motorcycle, or give him a place to sleep for the evening. Logothetis shows readers that kindness is indeed a universal language.

Books can be purchased in the main office for $8.00. Checks should be made payable to GWMS PTO. This is a great read in recognition of World Kindness Day or consider giving as a gift this holiday season.

  • Wednesday, October 18 from 3:00PM-7:45PM
  • Thursday, October 19from 7:15AM-11:45AM
Conferences will be by appointment only on Tuesday and Wednesday. To schedule your appointment please visit https://ptcfast.com/schools/Washington_Middle_School_1.

A link to our conference scheduler can also be found on our website www.washington.dbqschools.org.

We realize the length for each conference is relatively short. Short conferences are necessary because most middle school teachers see approximately 125 different students in their classes. Short conferences provide an efficiency that is effective for most families. If you feel that you need more time than what we have allocated, please call or email your student’s Homebase teacher and he/she will schedule it with you.
