ORANGE RULER… Thank you for the incredible job you did in supporting our school through the big Fall Fundraiser, the Orange Ruler Fun Run! It was a tremendous success and we raised over $17,527 for our school! Our children and school will benefit greatly from these funds as they will be used specifically for all the great events and support that our PTA provides for the Welch community including the following: LMC improvements and technology, classroom enhancement materials, STEM Fair, Cultural Night, classroom parties, popcorn for White Tiger Wednesdays, a school wide dance and much more. Not only did we raise these important funds but the overall Orange Ruler Program was a very positive and fun experience for our children, school and community. Throughout the past couple weeks, the consistent encouraging messages for our children to believe in themselves, work as a team and stay active made a big impact. It was also rewarding to see so many parents at the Fun Run itself out cheering on the children and their teams. We want to thank you again - it was great to see our whole school and community come together for this important cause.

WELCH SALUTE VETERANS… On Friday, November 9th, Welch Elementary School will celebrate Veteran’s Day at an all school assembly. At 2:15 PM students will honor our Veterans and celebrate our freedom. We are asking students to wear red, white and blue to help honor our Veterans.

A reception has been planned prior to the assembly. Veterans, along with their families and Welch student(s), are invited to attend. Upon arrival, the Veterans student will be called down to join them for the reception. We need an accurate count of how many Veterans and Veteran’s families will be attending so we can accommodate all those in attendance. Please fill out the attached form if you will be attending and return to Mrs. Gleason by October 26th.

We will create a Wall of Honor to represent past, present, and future Veterans. The wall will be located in the front display cabinets by the office. Stars with the names of veterans and current military members will adorn the wall. A portion of the display will be dedicated “In Memory” of those Veterans who are no longer living. If you wish to submit names and/or pictures for the wall, please fill out the form on the attached page or email the information to by October 26th. Please include which branch of the military your honored Veteran served in.

Thank you for helping to honor all our Veterans and to make this special day a success! We owe so much to our troops and this gives us an opportunity to show our appreciation and gratitude for their service. If you have any questions, you may email or
