Hats for Hurricane Victims… In light of the recent devastation caused by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, Welch White Tigers wore a HAT to support Hurricane Victims. Students who participated in this special day wore a hat and brought a monetary donation (any amount) to school, which was collected by classroom teachers and then given to the American Red Cross to assist our country in rebuilding from the hurricanes.

Welch Clubs and Activities for 2017-2018… Please see attached document with information about the various clubs and activities offered at Welch Elementary School for the year.

Charleston Wraps Fundraiser… The Welch PTA Charleston Wraps Fundraiser is coming to an end. All order forms and money should be returned on Monday September 18th. All checks are to be made out to "Welch PTA". If you need an extra packet or an extra order form we have them in the school office.Have your child keep turning in their coupons for items sold. Prizes are still be awarded. Students who sell at least 25 items will be entered to win one of the 5 pigs and to race them for the top prizes. Thanks to our generous community retailers we have some very cool prizes to award for our pig race. We have tickets to Hollywood Palms, Learning Express has given us a Putty Kit, Putty, and a gift card and Sky Zone has donated a Family Fun Pack. Proceeds from this fundraiser will allow the Welch PTA to continue our current PTA programs throughout the year. A few of these programs are field trip funding, reading programs, classroom technologies, room parties, other supplies and learning materials and much more. Thank you in advance for your help!

Reflections 2017-2018… Reflections is the National PTA arts program that asks children to get creative! Students are invited to create works of art in any of six different arts categories, reflecting upon a different theme each year. The six arts categories are dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts. There is also a special artist category. The theme for the 2017-2018 school year is "Within Reach." Students can create arts in multiple categories. But it has to be the original work of the student. It's an opportunity to take your arts talent to National level. Cut off date for submission of arts project along with completed student entry form at the school office is Oct 25, 2017 (Wednesday). Please contact Vidya Ramakrishnan at 630-423-6342 or for detailed rules or questions.
