23-24 John Welsh Music Grant

One of our school priorities is exposure. Our goal is to expose all of our children to experiences beyond Welsh. Our school was awarded a Save the Music Foundation grant thanks to our wonderful Music teacher, Ms. Bernstein. We are excited to expose our children to the new instruments! Wonderful things are happening at the Welsh.

We believe in and celebrate all of our children.

Welcome to John Welsh Elementary School!

John Welsh Vision

We challenge the fundamental notion of education beyond the four walls of our school. We believe that the success of our students is predicated on the cultivation of an equitable and liberated community, and therefore, we strive to do whatever it takes to not only remove barriers and increase access for our children but also enable our community to find their individual and collective voice and power.

John Welsh Mission

By working together cooperatively, the staff, students, parents, and community will respect each other and work to their fullest potential to recognize John Welsh students’ special needs and demands.  These include but are not limited to experiencing success, recognition for accomplishments, and feeling supported, accepted, and worthy.  By being committed to this responsibility that we all share, the values of achievement, perseverance, trust, pride, and tolerance for diversity will be prevalent and conducive to a nurturing, social, and learning environment at the John Welsh Elementary School.

John Welsh Core Values

  • We do whatever it takes for our children.
  • We believe in and celebrate all of our children.
  • We are constantly learning, growing, and getting better.

A Message From Leadership

As we are well into the midpoint of the 2023-2024 school year, we want to extend our sincerest gratitude to all our families for their unwavering partnership and support thus far. Your involvement in your child’s education is invaluable, and we truly appreciate your commitment to working together as a team. Research shows that children thrive academically when there is strong collaboration between home and school, and we’ve witnessed the positive impact of our collective efforts. We encourage families to continue their active involvement and support, making the remainder of the year even better. Together, we can ensure that every student reaches their full potential and achieves success both academically and personally. Thank you for being an essential part of our school community!
Yours in Partnership,
Principal Green and Assistant Principal Fay
