Welches PTCO Parent Teacher Corner

Welches PTCO Parent Teacher Corner

Hello, Welches Families! In February, our community came together for some heartwarming events despite a few unexpected challenges. Parent volunteers and our 8th graders organized a memorable Family Valentine’s Day Dance, overcoming a power outage with grace to ensure a delightful evening of dinner, raffles, and dancing, thanks to Alpine Events’ hospitality & the incredible 8th grade parent volunteers who worked so hard on this event! All proceeds from the dance went to support the 8th Grade Promotion Fund. Additionally, the WPTCO hosted another fantastic movie night, featuring a screening of The Super Mario Bros Movie, bringing some fun to families in our school community.

Looking ahead to March, we have some exciting events on the horizon. First, a reminder that our students will enjoy a well-deserved break from March 25-29 for Spring Break, allowing families time to recharge and enjoy quality time together. But before that, mark your calendars for March 6th from 8-8:45am for Music & Muffins! The WPTCO is hosting a before-school parent meet & greet event at Welches School. It’s a perfect opportunity for parents to connect over freshly baked treats and music, fostering friendships within our tight-knit community. We look forward to seeing you there for a memorable morning of connection!

Get ready for the highlight of 2024 – the WPTCO Annual Spring 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! If you’d like to become a food & beverage sponsor, event sponsor, donate goods or services, or event volunteer, scan the QR code below or visit https://www.welchesptco.org/auction for more information.

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 Welches elementary school classrooms! Your generous support at our upcoming auction will directly contribute to much-needed tech upgrades in those 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 of our students.

The WPTCO is a non-profit that serves & supports the students of the Welches Schools and the greater Welches community.
