Pastries for Parents


Carrie Steele, left, and husband Jason, right, help their children Seth, Briana and Natalie select doughnuts Friday morning at Washington Elementary School. The school hosted its annual “Pastries for Parents” event, an occasion where parents are encouraged to visit the school and share breakfast with their kids. Washington Elementary School principal Jeff Eeling said the school has done it every year of his seven-year tenure as principal. He likes to do it before parents come in for parent-teacher conferences, which are late in the season this school year (beginning the week of Nov. 19).
