     Dr. Washington, Principal

    Welcome to Patuxent Elementary. Thank you for taking the time to visit us. This is one way we try to stay connected with you. Patuxent seeks to address the whole child by fostering a love for learning and helping to develop lasting life skills. Our aim is to maintain balance by ensuring we are models for our students. We encourage you our parent partners to become models alongside us.

    As Patuxent staff report to work prepared to teach daily, we ask that your child reports to school on time and prepared to learn daily. Investment in your child’s future will yield great dividends when s/he becomes a productive adult. Through years of practice your child will learn to value education, develop good work ethics and truly become a life long learner.

    Thank you for your cooperation and the opportunity to serve you and your children.

    Glenda Washington, Ed.D., Principal
