Welches PTCO Parent Teacher Corner

By Cassie Kanable

Welches PTCO Parent Teacher Corner

Hello, Welches Family!
April was a big month packed with exciting events! We teamed up with parents, community members and Welches staff for our annual Scholastic Book Fair, Books & Bagels Event and 2024 Bid & Bloom Spring Auction. Students and families had a blast shopping at the book fair, raising funds for future book purchases. At the Books & Bagels Event, students received a free book, enjoyed family reading time, and had a delicious breakfast — a memorable morning for everyone, celebrating literacy!

Thank you to our wonderful mountain community for participating in our 2024 Bid & Bloom Spring Auction on April 27th! We’re eager to share our fundraising results with you in the June Parent Teacher Corner once we’ve finalized our numbers! The WPTCO is thrilled to work alongside Welches Schools’ staff and teachers, using the proceeds from the auction to upgrade technology in our elementary classrooms. If you couldn’t attend the auction but still want to contribute, visit to find out how you can help!

Looking ahead to May, the WPTCO is focused on our last community movie night of the year and loving on the teachers & staff at Welches Schools. Upcoming events:
May 13–17: Teacher & Staff Appreciation Week at Welches Schools
This is a big week at Welches celebrating our incredible Welches teachers, staff, and administrators! Each day of the week a meal will be provided and some small gifts to share as well!
