Posted 3/5/23

I hope you are all having a safe and rainy weekend.  May your homes and families be safe and not impacted with the ongoing cold weather and rain.   Please be sure to review all events below for the upcoming week.  It is going to be another busy week ahead.


This Week:.

Spring Photos - This Wednesday TK, Kindergarten, 1st, and 3rd grade students will have the opportunity to have their Spring Photos taken in the library.   On Thursday, the 2nd, 4th, and 5th grade will have their photos taken.  *** This is completely optional for all 5th grade students since 5th grade just had their cap and gown photos taken the previous week.  **Due to Fitness Week, if you would like your child's spring photo taken, please have them bring an additional shirt for the photo so they can continue to show their support and Fitness Week spirit Day by wearing their grade level Fitness Week t-shirt.


Real Juicery Fundraiser on Wednesday;    Are you looking for a healthy snack after school or before dinner?  Our supportive POWW is hosting a fundraiser at The Real Juicery in Canoga Park on Wednesday from 9:00 am - 6:00 pm.  It is located on 7212 Remmet off Sherman Way between Owensmouth and Canoga.  Enjoy a juice, smoothie, or delicious acai bowl to help support the programs at Welby Way.   **Flyer attached for more information.

Lastly, thank you to the many students and families who donated to the Book Donation to help support literacy for families in need in Africa.  Our Welby Way alumni who organized the event was able to pack his father's car with bags and boxes of books.  He was extremely appreciative of the kindness and generosity to help support his cause and nonprofit.  Thank you.


I hope all have a wonderful remainder of the weekend.  Please continue to be safe as we prepare for another week of cold and rainy weather.  Also, please be sure your child comes to school with a warm hooded jacket, umbrella, and/or a change of socks to keep them dry and warm throughout the school day.   Don't forget to stop by the front of the school to check the Lost and Found to retrieve the many lost clothing items.  Have a good evening and this is all for now.


Your Welby Way Principal,

Mrs. DaCorsi
