Welches PTCO Parent Teacher Corner

Welches PTCO Parent Teacher Corner

Hello Welches Families! In March, students and parents came together for our first ever Music, Math & Muffins event! Guests enjoyed math games, jazzy tunes, and delicious muffins generously donated by Tollgate Bakery in Sandy. It was certainly a memorable morning of connection for Welches students and their families! Looking ahead to April, the WPTCO is focused on making this year’s Bid & Bloom Spring Auction a smashing success and hosting another wonderful Scholastic Book Fair at Welches Schools.

This year, we’re setting our sights higher, aiming to raise over $30,000 for Welches Schools to provide some much needed tech upgrades in each of the elementary classrooms! Your generous support at our upcoming auction will directly contribute to much-needed tech upgrades in the Welches Elementary classrooms. These upgrades include essential equipment like projectors, document cameras, and smart boards, along with the necessary labor to complete each installation. With an estimated cost of $3,000 per classroom and eight classrooms in total, your contributions will pave the way for a modernized learning environment that enhances the educational experience for our students.

If you are interested in volunteering for the auction or making a donation, please visit our website or email our auction chair at by April 5th.
