Welches Parent-Teacher Corner

Welches Parent-Teacher Corner

Hello, Welches families! January’s winter storm led to a week-long school closure, but our community rallied, allowing a safe return for the last two weeks of January. As we move forward, let’s embrace the warmth and camaraderie that make our community special.

Join us in February for Welches PTCO Movie Night: Come in for a screening of “The Super Mario Brothers” on Friday, February 23rd in the Welches Elementary Multipurpose Room. Doors open at 5:00 PM, movie starts at 6:00 PM. Bring chairs, floor pillows or blankets. $1 per person, concessions available for purchase. ALL CHILDREN MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT. We owe a huge thank you to ZigZag Inn for donating pizza for our movie night in December. We are so grateful for community sponsors like you!

Thank you to our WPTCO Wreath Sale partner, Welches Mountain Building Supply Co. for selling wreaths during the holiday season to benefit Welches Schools. With their help and the help of our parent volunteers, we were able to raise over $3,000 for our WPTCO general fund!

Get ready for the highlight of 2024 – the Welches PTCO Annual Auction on April 27th at Camp Arrah Wanna! This is our primary fundraising venture for the year, channeling all proceeds into the WPTCO general fund and supporting school essentials like technology, supplies, field trips, and more. But here’s the scoop – we need YOUR help to make the magic happen! Whether you have a little time or a lot, there’s a role for everyone.

Here are a couple of ways you can contribute to the auction right now.

Expand our auction’s reach: Tap into your network and add to our incredible list of auction items! Whether it’s products, services, overnight rentals or unique treasures, we welcome it all. Your personal connections can make a significant difference.

Solicitation follow-ups: We’re on the lookout for volunteers to help with follow-ups in mid-late February. Reach out to those who’ve received solicitation letters but haven’t responded. This flexible role allows you to contribute at your own pace. Even handling follow-ups for 10 companies can make a tremendous impact on the amount of donations we bring in!

Last year’s auction was a triumph, bringing in over $23,000. This year, we’re setting our sights higher, aiming to raise $30,000 for Welches Schools! Your support is key to achieving this ambitious goal. Let’s come together to create another spectacular event that benefits Welches students.
