Principal's Welcome

Carleton Washburne Families,

It is with great pride and excitement that I write to you as the Principal of Carelton Washburne School.  I am thrilled and humbled to join the Washburne community, and continue the rich history of excellence in progressive education.  

 I have sixteen years educational experience spanning grades PreK-8.  I am elated to bring my skills as an educational servant leader to Washburne to work with you, and our amazing staff, as partners in education to ensure your child’s success.

I am a firm believer in the importance of building strong relationships with parents, staff, and students. This will be my number one priority at Washburne, as I plan to greet students each morning as they walk through the door, and be a frequent visitor to their classrooms.  As a staff, we will focus on providing a safe and nurturing environment that fosters and supports academic, social, and emotional growth for all children.

Throughout the year it is my hope that we will work together to prepare students for high school with a solid educational foundation, empowering them to become world-class citizens.  

As Principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input.  I strongly believe in open, two-way communication. I look forward to meeting you throughout the school year.


Andrew Fenton
Principal, Carleton Washburne School
