F.A.C.E. - Family and Community Engagement

Washington needs your voice, energy and ideas!  The F.A.C.E. team meets monthly and provides volunteers, decision-making, and more!  School teams come together to learn and set goals for the year to support student achievement.

Our mission as a Family & Community Engagement (F.A.C.E.) team at Washington Middle School is to promote and encourage communication between parents, teachers, administration and the community.

FACE Meetings are held each month on the fourth Tuesday 5:30-6:30pm .  Please contact Ms. Pedigo at 217 525-3182 ext 290 or email with questions or for assistance.

 Ms. Pedigo-LLCC Magazine at Fall Festival

Hello! I'm Nicole Pedigo, the Family and Community Engagement Liaison at Washington Middle School. This is my first year working for the school district and at WMS. I am a recent graduate of Lincoln Land Community College where I studied Secondary Education and now I am pursuing my teaching degree at UIS so I can be a middle school history teacher.

I decided to come to Washington Middle School because I have a passion for helping people succeed and I believe working in a middle school will allow me to do that. I come from a rough background and I'll always remember the teachers and school staff that made a difference in my life.

One thing I want my students and families to know about me is that I am here to help in any way I can. I am here to help overcome barriers to success, provide support, and help families learn how to support their student's education.
