Ms. Rhonda Stover has taught for 30 years in McDowell. Most of her time teaching was at Welch Elementary. Ms. Stover would always offer a smile and encouraging words, to not only students but also co-workers daily. Rhonda’s love for learning and her students coupled with her positive attitude influenced a great many! Her ability to find the good in people is one lesson we can all stand to learn. We will miss her ,and we hope all her future dreams come true. Thank you for all you have done for our kids, Ms. Stover! Enjoy you well deserved retirement!

Welch Elementary would like to emphasize the importance of engaging conversations with kids. We realize that most kids are reluctant to share information about their school day. Download our pdf flyer that offers practical tips and suggestions for parents and guardians to engage their child in conversations about their school day.
Mrs. White at Welch Elementary would like to stress the important role of being active in order to be healthy! In recognition of this, we will have a Biddy Basket Ball Game held after school. Each grade will play May 18, 2017. Also, we will have a Faculty Volleyball Match May the 24th.
