January is School Board Appreciation Month. The Washington-Nile Local School District would like to recognize our Board of Education. Our board members work very hard to meet the needs of our students. It takes time and dedication to ensure our district is meeting those needs. Our district would like to thank each board member for their time and service they provide to our school community. Our 2016-2017 board members are; Tom Berry, Julie Essman, Craig Hazelbaker, Ed Hileman, and Jane Kouns.
Thanks for all you do for the Washington-Nile Local School District!

We’d like to thank the Key Club for their generous act of kindness during the holidays.

Let us congratulate PRIMA and SMOW for putting on a great performance and thanks to Mrs. Tieman for making it all possible.

On Tuesday, September 28th, Kayleigh Coleman became the first volleyball player in our school history to have 1,000 career assists. Kayleigh has been a varsity setter since her Freshman year, allowing her to accumulate a large amount of assists. A player is awarded an assist whenever that player sets the ball to a teammate who attacks the ball for a kill. The kill results in the team scoring one point. Congratulations Kayleigh! More coverage can be found at the Portsmouth Daily Times, our local newspaper.
