Dana R. Jackson, Principal

Welcome to Washington-Henry Elementary School! I, again, feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to serve and work alongside you as principal during the 2017-2018 school year.

Washington-Henry is truly a special place to be! With a rich tradition
of excellence, our teachers and staff are committed to providing
meaningful instruction and ensuring academic progress for all students.
We are very fortunate to have supportive parents, active community
partners and an amazing PTA to enrich our students and school. We encourage all parents and friends of WHES to join the PTA and volunteer in our school. As we navigate the year, we will work as a team to achieve our goals and celebrate our successes!

I am truly honored to be a member of the Washington-Henry Elementary
School family and look forward to working with you this year. Together
we will continue to learn, care and share together!

Mrs. Sarah Pike, Assistant Principal


I am thrilled to join the amazing staff of Washington-Henry and return to my elementary school roots.  I am a former elementary special education teacher and have worked in New York City Public Schools, a private special education day school in New York, abroad at the American School of Paris, and in Henrico County.  I have been in Hanover for nine years at Stonewall Jackson Middle School, one year as a special education teacher, two years as a Senior Teacher, and six years as an Assistant Principal.  Supporting a top-notch public education system is an honor.  I love connecting with students and families every day and working with teachers to provide excellent teaching and learning on a daily basis.  


I live in Henrico with my husband, two sons, one snake and several fish. I am a native Californian and love to read and go camping with my family.
