News for the Week of June 3 - 7

Good evening Welby Way families,

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend as we head into our second to the last week of the 2023 - 24 school year with lots of performances and goodness to come.   First, I want to thank our amazing students, Music Teacher - Mr. Lake, and teachers who participated in this week's "Spring Vibe" Spring Sing. The students did a beautiful job bringing the spring vibe alive.  Parents please remember that the grades who did not participate had participated in the winter program in December.   

This Week: 

Volunteer Tea:  On Monday from 9:30 - 10:30 am we will have our annual Volunteer Tea in the garden area behind the main office.  We look forward to celebrating and thanking the many volunteers who have given their time and service this school year to help our students and school shine.  Please be sure to check in at the main office.   No younger siblings or children are permitted for the event.   

Earthquake Kits:  This week our earthquake bins will be returned to classrooms and students will be bringing home their earthquake kits for the summer.  

After School Spanish Enrichment Class:  This week is our final week of the Spanish enrichment class.   Class will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday after school this week.  Please check your emails for specifics for times for Wednesday's class.  I hope everyone who participated this year enjoyed this opportunity for their children as we hope to continue next year.
