Dear Mt. Washington Elementary Families,

Welcome back and a special hello to our new students and their families. We look forward to a wonderful school year! As you arrive at school you may notice a few new banners on our fences that read “One Mountain.” We created these banners, along with our One Mountain wristbands, to celebrate the beauty of diversity on our campus, and inspire unity and community.

We are all different in many ways. Different laughs, smiles, faces, complexions, thoughts, beliefs, and feelings. Our differences make us strong, and they should not stop us from giving a smile, a hug, a handshake, a pat on the back or words of encouragement. Each child is unique, but we all have the potential to spread joy and friendship. Happiness is inside of us, and sharing it is one of the greatest gifts we can give one another.

We want One Mountain to be a daily reminder that we are all – students, teachers, administrators, families, and friends – committed to taking care of each other and our community. Together we are better, united as one mountain.
