Early Release Day Notification

Early Release

Wednesday, October 24 is an Early Release day. Students will be dismissed 45 minutes earlier than regularly scheduled.

Auburn-Washburn provides early release days to give teachers an opportunity to collaborate throughout the year. See the Student Calendar for additional Early Release days.

PARENTS! To give your child the best educational experience possible, we’re excited to raise funds for Technology and in or out of the classroom experiences! We’re hosting a Fun Run where students will learn different character traits from students all over the world. Family and friends anywhere in the world can support our school by giving a flat donation. Your student’s Fun Run will take place on Friday, October 26. Our 2-week Fun Run program kicks off today, Monday, October 15!

All the money raised for this fundraiser will go directly back to Wanamaker, how cool is that, that we will profit 100%. Student’s will be competing by grade level to earn grade level prizes rather than individual prizes. We have set a school goal to raise $10,000. If we reach that goal Mr. Sonderegger will have to do something exciting. Let’s raise $10,000 and see what he has to do.​
