5TH GRADE FIELD TRIP – JA Biztown field trip – October 9 – all day.

“COLUMBUS DAY” - October 12 - Teacher In-service - Schools Closed.


WELCH CHORUS – The Welch Chorus will perform at Rider Pride Day at Caesar Rodney High School on Saturday, October 17 at 9:55 am. Chorus members should find more information from Mrs. Walls in today’s Wednesday envelope.

SCHOOL MESSENGER – There are times when schoolwide or District automated messages go out to our Welch families during school hours (e.g., early closings, cancellation of after school activities, etc.) We are asking that you check your voice mails before calling the school to avoid our phone lines from being tied up. We appreciate your assistance in this regard.

CHANGE OF STUDENT ADDRESS OR PHONE NUMBER – It is IMPORTANT to notify the office immediately of any changes in your child(s) address or phone number. We are also noticing that several parents are listing out of state emergency contacts. It is important to note that if parents or guardians are not available and there is an emergency situation, we need to be able to contact someone in the local area.

FROM MRS. YENCER, ALT – What are the three types of writing my child will be asked to create? 1) Opinion/Argumentative - An argument is a reasoned, logical way of demonstrating the writer’s position, belief, or conclusion. The writer makes a claim and then defends that claim with information from credible sources. Students must clarify relationships between the claim and the evidence and address counterclaims. Argument takes the form of opinion in the elementary grades and evolves into argument in the middle and high school grades. 2) Informative/Explanatory – Informational/explanatory writings convey information accurately. The writer’s purpose is to increase the reader’s knowledge, to help the reader better understand a procedure or process, or to increase the reader’s comprehension of a concept. Information writing begins with the assumption of truthfulness and answers questions of why or how. Writers draw information from what they already know and from primary and secondary sources. They must select and incorporate relevant examples, facts and details. 3) Narrative – Narrative writing conveys an experience, either real or imaginary and uses time as its deep structure. Narrative writing can be informative, persuasive, or entertaining.
