Welches PTCO Corner

Welches PTCO Corner

Parent Teacher Corner
Hello Welches Families! May was filled with exciting events and continued work wrapping up our recent activities! In mid May, the WPTCO hosted Teacher & Staff Appreciation Week at Welches Schools. Our dedicated teachers, staff, and administrators enjoyed a week of festivities, including a brunch for lunch, a taco feast from a local truck, charcuterie boxes, a customizable trail mix bar, and thoughtful gifts featuring plants to brighten their spaces. A special thanks to Skyway for generously donating a full catered BBQ lunch on the final day, adding an extra special touch to our celebrations! Thank you to our incredible Welches School team – we appreciate everything you do for our kids and local families!

Bid & Bloom Spring Auction Results
We are thrilled to share the incredible outcome of our recent Bid & Bloom Spring Auction, a testament to the outstanding support of this mountain community. Through your generosity and dedication, we raised an impressive $27,500 for Welches Schools! While just below our goal of $30,000, this achievement still positions us well to support significant changes at Welches! Just under $18,000 will be immediately allocated to the school to upgrade the technology infrastructure across all elementary school classrooms. Both delivery and installation of this new technology are scheduled for this summer, ensuring our students benefit from advanced learning resources in the upcoming academic year. A big thank you to Welches Principal Kendra Payne for organizing this project for our students!
Our gratitude extends to our sponsors, donors and volunteers who made this event possible. Special thanks to all who generously supported the Bid & Bloom Spring Auction! To see a full list of sponsors, donors, and volunteers, please visit our website at
Looking ahead to June, the WPTCO is focused on our last event of the school year and sending these kids into summer with tons of fun.
