Clubs at Washington Elementary

Washington Elementary offers various clubs for our students in addition to activities and clubs sponsored by the community. The clubs are offered at various times through the school year.

4th Grade Orchestra Lessons

The Mount Vernon Community School District is fortunate to have a strong orchestra program for 4th through 12th grade students. Stringed instruments are demonstrated to 3rd grade students in the spring. Students and parents decide which instrument to learn so lessons can begin in the summer and continue through the 4th grade year. Please contact our orchestra teacher, Tabitha Rasmussen, at if you would like to learn more about the program.
