2019-2020 Kindergarteners… If you have a child who will be five (5) years old on or before September 1, 2019, he or she is eligible to enroll in kindergarten for the 2019-20 school year. You are invited and encouraged to attend a Kindergarten Preview Night on April 24, 2019 at 6:00PM. At this meeting, we will provide a detailed look at what the kindergarten experience will offer. You will also be provided with more details related to registration requirements and deadlines. This night is designed for parents/guardians AND incoming kindergarten students only. We ask that siblings do not attend this event.

We need the Kindergarten Information Sheet Welch completed prior to orientation so that we can begin planning kindergarten enrollment for the upcoming school year. This information will be used to form a kindergarten mailing list. Once on the mailing list, additional information will be mailed to eligible kindergarten parents. Information regarding registration will be available after April.

If you have any neighbors who do not presently have school-aged children, but will have an incoming kindergartner, please give them a copy of this form or ask them to call our office at 630.428.7200 so that we can send them this information. I look forward to meeting you at the Kindergarten Preview Night.

Please mark your calendars!

Thank you from Welch PTA… Room Parents & Volunteers, On behalf of your Welch PTA, we would like to thank you all for three very successful classroom parties. Having 3 parties, for 1,878 students, in 75 different rooms, with over 300 volunteers, all while two taking place during the height of cold/flu season, is no small task. And for them to ALL happen, flawlessly, we truly appreciate you. These parties would not have happened without the dedication of the Welch family. Many of you took on more than you had planned to ensure these parties happened. With us all managing family, school, careers, other volunteering, and well, life, you came together and made our children so very happy. To the parents/guardians, grandparents, aunts and uncles that came and conquered, you rock! Your Welch PTA is humbled and grateful. Thank you.
