Hello to all of our new and returning Welby familes. We hope that you enjoyed your summer and are ready for a great new school year.


This year will be one unlike ever before. While we will not physically be together on Welby’s Campus with our wonderful teachers and staff, we will nonetheless be together as we embark on the continued journey of distance learning.


POWW has always functioned as a means to support and engage Welby families, the administration and staff as well as our community in a shared belief that we are stronger together. The programs that POWW organizes and supports at Welby are possible because of our incredible community made up of parents, grandparents, volunteers and more!


The programs that POWW organizes, that we have grown to know and love at Welby may look a bit different this year, but we will continue to aim to create engaging and fun activities for everyone while continuing to build community and stay connected.


For those of you that are new to Welby Way, you may be wondering – What is POWW? POWW inc. is Welby Way’s parent organization. (Parents of Welby Way) We organize events, activities and coordinate with the administration and staff at the school to make a fun and exciting calendar year after year!


But… none of this is possible without you! VOLUNTEERS are at the center of all that we do at Welby Way and at POWW. POWW is made up of a group of parents that meet monthly to schedule and create all of the fun happenings at the school. We encourage all new and interested parents to get involved and to attend one of our meetings which we will be doing on zoom!. We love welcoming new people to this awesome group. We hold elections in the spring for the following school year and always have new positions to fill.


Another important component of POWW is our fundraising efforts. Each year we have our Annual Giving Campaign better known as “AGC”. The monies raised from our families donations year after year allows POWW to provide funding for so many of the amazing programs our kids have access to – from computer class to PE, while also allowing us to provide monies for supplementary materials needed in classrooms, and monies for classroom aides and support. This year our AGC program will be structured a bit different with our coupon system being put on hold for now. Please read more about this under the “AGC Donations” tab on the POWW Website.


The funds that are raised this year will go towards all of the programs that we are able to run during distance learning this fall, supporting our teachers and ensuring that when we do return to school we will have all of the wonderful enrichment our kids would usually have and then some.


We encourage new families to ask questions, reach out and connect. Please do not hesitate to
contact POWW as we want to help you as you embark on your journey at Welby. We look
forward to meeting you if you are new and seeing all of your faces both new and old around the halls at the school. While this new year will present new challenges, I am confident that we will be stronger together!
