The front office staff is rude. They have on more than 1 occasion not given my child his snack or $ that I dropped off at the office when he had forgotten it in time for him to actually use it. They have too many inexperienced teachers & took no thought into where they placed these first year teachers when it came to the kids success. A school dance was even held during the school day for the entire school; K-5. Only the students who were considered to be "good" 90% of the time from the first day of school up until that point were able to attend while the others were left in the classrooms to do busy work. This was announced aloud to the entire class so the ones who didn't get to attend knew who was going why they were going & why themselves would not be! To top it all off this was done completely behind the parent's backs. This school just received a letter grade of a "C" from the state & they were only a few points from a "D." These are just highlights of the tragedies these children experience. Currently I am looking for a school to move my child to this year & my younger children will not be attending this school either.

The teachers Let them know that they are valuable capable human beings and that they know they can succeed. They Give them positive feedback Support them in their daily school activities sports dealing with life experiences. They don't put children down. They focus on what their doing right and point it out to them . The teachers make the children accountable for their actions but in a positive way that builds confidence in them
My child is in Kindergarten and she loves each and every day. The teachers are so caring and willing to work closely with each student no matter the situation. Our family cannot wait for our second child to start in a few years.
When I was a child I'll say welcome was a better school than it is today my kids went to welcome and I wasn't happy with what I saw teacher have to many favorites and unfriendly teachers my kids no longer attend welcome and are doing great in their new school and I've talk with alot of parents that feel this way.
This is the fourth year that my son has attended Welcome Elementary. And I have to say that I love his school! Everyone seems to truly care about the children and are looking out for their best interest at all times. I will be sad when he leaves this school in a couple of years. Keep up the good work Welcome!
Welcome is a great school. All 4 of my children have or are attending and we have always been pleased with their success throughout the years. Parent involvement is always high and we are always welcome and appreciated. The teachers are well qualified and really care about our children. Welcome is always a happy environment with friendly staff.
