HOUSEHOLD SUPPLY CHALLENGE … Thank you to everyone for your generosity with our Household Supply Challenge. Almost 1000 items were donated that will benefit Welch families! To celebrate the kindness of the Welch White Tiger community, on Friday students are invited to wear pajamas to school. Students will be watching a movie, receive popcorn, and will get to watch a faculty volleyball match! It will be an especially fun day at Welch!

YEARBOOKS… Yearbook Order Forms were sent home with students a few weeks ago. This is your last chance to purchase a yearbook for the 2016-2017 school year! If you are unsure whether you have purchased a yearbook, please contact your student’s teacher. Yearbooks are $13.00 each and can be purchased online at OR complete and return the Order Form. All orders are due March 10th.

PARCC….Students in grades 3- 5 will be taking the PARCC assessment soon. Students will be testing between 90 - 120 minutes per day during their testing window. We appreciate your support in ensuring your student(s) arrive to school on time each day, but especially during testing. If possible, we ask that dental and medical appointments not be made during testing periods as well. The schedule is as follows:

Grade 3 - Weeks of 4.3 and 4.10 AFTERNOON TESTING
Grade 4 - Weeks of 3.13 MORNING TESTING and 3.20 AFTERNOON TESTING
Grade 5 - Weeks of 3.13 AFTERNOON TESTING and 3.20 MORNING TESTING

Please contact Sarah Nowak or Sherry Fredericks with any questions!

ARRIVING LATE… If your student is arriving late to school, please note that an adult must sign them in the office! Thank you!
