Free Summer Lunch Program for Youth Ages 1-18

There is a Free Summer Lunch Program at Hathaway Elementary School each weekday Monday to Friday from Noon to 1 PM, July 9 through 31.  All children are welcome ages 1-18.  There is no paperwork to fill out, meals must be eaten on site, and adults may not eat any portion of the child's meal.  However, thanks to our generous community partners, adults will be provided a free snack when accompanying a child.  

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) prohibits discrimination in all its programs and activities on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, age, or disability.

In addition to the above federal rules, Washougal School District also does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, creed, religion, color, national origin, age, honorably discharged veteran or military status, sexual orientation including gender expression or identity, the presence of any sensory, mental, or physical disability, or the use of a trained dog guide or service animal by a person with a disability in its programs and activities and provides equal access to the Boy Scouts and other designated youth groups.

Students in Gause Teacher Julie Taie's classroom submitted poems they wrote as part of a the "Creative Communication: A Celebration of Today's Writers" program through Mrs. Taie received a communication from the editors saying that they normally only consider a portion of the poems "publication ready" but that every one of the ones from her classroom will be published! 

Poems will be published online and in printed books, available after June 21, 2012.

Below is one of the poems students wrote, edited, and submitted.

The Closet
by Trenton H.

When I hear laughs
and other eerie sounds
coming from the closet,
I get frightened.
What kind of monsters
are living
in my mind?
