23-24 John Welsh Block Party

Thank you, Ms. Shonta and everyone who worked both behind the scenes and in front to ensure that our Annual Block Party was a huge success. Seeing the smiles on all our children’s beautiful faces was heartwarming. Many students showcased their creative dance moves, and the sheer joy overflowed into the community.

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 the end of the school year approaches, we wanted to take a moment to remind you that we only have a few weeks left before summer break. It’s crucial for our students to finish the year strong, ensuring they consolidate their learning and complete any remaining tasks with dedication and focus. Your support at home is invaluable during this time, so please encourage your child to stay motivated and engaged in their studies. Together, let’s make these final weeks count and ensure our students end the year on a high note, ready for the adventures that lie ahead. Thank you for your continued partnership and support.
Yours in Partnership,
Principal Green and Assistant Principal Fay
