Washington Eagle Staff        2019-2020


we won the National Young Readers Pizza Hut Principal Challenge 2019

The Principal Challenge is where the school principal reads to the whole school all day. From the beginning of school to the end of school.

Dr. Denson took up the challenge and read all day. She read the classic: Three Billy Goats Gruff and The Three Billy Goats Gruff as told by the Troll.

So, the hallway was transformed into the scene to the Troll living under the bridge.

Thank you, to the staff that made the scene come to life and to Dr. Denson for reading all day, and making the character come to life.


Pizza Hut gave the staff a pizza party....  Dr. Denson wnet to every staff and passed out pizza as soon as the pizza got here. Nice and Hot !!

The kids were jealous....

Also, all the students received a book for their house library.
