Welch Weekly Reminder
February 22,  2017

2ND GRADE CONCERT – February 23rd at 7:00 pm. All 2nd graders will be asked to “dress up” and look their best for their special performance. No t-shirts, sweatpants or jeans please.

Is your child complaining of not feeling well enough to come to school? If you suspect your child is sick, please check their temperature with a thermometer before sending them to school. If your child has had a temperature over 100 degrees in the last 12-24 hours please keep them home until they are fever free. It is not appropriate to send them to school, even if you give them Tylenol and their fever breaks. They will still be contagious to other children and will also not feel well enough to learn. Vomiting and diarrhea is at least 12-24 hours as well. When kids come to school with fevers, vomiting or diarrhea, they put others at risk of getting sick as well. Thank you for your understanding.

BIRTHDAYS – Due to concerns for students with food allergies, effective March 1st parents can no longer bring in food/snack items for student birthdays during lunch times. Parents can send in alternative birthday celebration items. For example, you can send in pencils, erasers, party favors, stickers, bookmarks, etc. If you plan to send in these alternative items, please make arrangements with your child’s teacher in advance of their birthday. Thank you.

READ ACROSS AMERICA DAY – March 2 – To celebrate Read Across America Day, Welch has many fun activities planned. Students are encouraged to dress up as their favorite Dr. Seuss character if they want to take part in a costume contest on the 2nd. We can’t wait to see how creative everyone can be.
