Washington Elementary Nominated for Architectural Award

Washington Elementary School has been nominated for an Orchard Award from the San Diego Arch­itectural Foundation. The school’s nomination read, “Washington Elementary, the only elementary school in downtown San Diego, is a hidden gem of Little Italy that was lost in hues of beige under­tones.

In an out-of-sight part of this lively neighborhood, the elementary school was screaming for color! With a few strokes of color, (18 colors to be exact) a whole new light and life has been given to Washington Elementary as a learning community asset.” The winners will be announced on Thursday, November 12.

For more information on the nomination, and to vote, please visit the webpage. For information on the school, please contact Principal Janie Wardlow at (619) 525-7475.
