Weekly Reminder for October 11, 2017
“Education is the best gift you can give your child.”
HEALTHY CONNECTIONS – Quit the “clean-plate club.” Let kids stop eating when they feel they’ve had enough. Lots of parents grew up under the clean-plate rule, but that approach doesn’t help kids listen to their own bodies when they feel full. When kids notice and respond to feelings of fullness, they’re less likely to overeat.
FROM THE NURSE – Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation “One Walk” – Please consider joining Welch Elementary and DABMS on November 4, 2017 at Silver Lake Park for the JDRF “One Walk” to raise money for research and awareness for Type 1 Diabetes. It’s a great way to show support for students who are affected by Type 1 Diabetes. Go online to sign up to join the team and walk, donate or fundraise. Welch and DABM One Walk Team
WELCH RSVP’S – Please remember when we have events that require a RSVP that you respond when you and your family plan on attending. This is how we base having enough materials and food prepared for our events. In the event you need to cancel your reservation, please send a note to your child’s teacher.
NURSE INFORMATION – Parents wishing to make contact with the school nurse concerning their child must enter the main doors and sign-in at the Welch office. Due to privacy issues, student needs, meetings, or possible emergencies, there may be times when the nurse is not available to meet with parents. We ask for your patience if you are asked to remain in the office. Our office staff will also be happy to relay your contact information and/or messages to our nurse, and she will call you once she becomes available.

2017-2018 CR SCHOOL BELL SCHEDULE ANNOUNCED
The State of Delaware is experiencing a severe bus driver shortage
and the Caesar Rodney School District is taking proactive steps to keep our buses running.
With the alignment of bell times for both the secondary and elementary schools,
we have dramatically increased our efficiency as each bus can service both sets of schools.
Double runs means fewer drivers are needed and cuts transportation costs as well.
Furthermore, the bell time alignment allows for more middle school students
to attend high school classes for distance learning experiences.
The change was made out of necessity - primarily due to bus routes being refused
or dropped by our bus contractors and their inability of finding bus drivers.
After a community committee studied the issue, a decision was made to change start
times so that we were still able to provide transportation services to our families.
Early Dismissal Times are TBA. Please share. Thank you.
