Once you’ve registered and created your user ID, you will be good to go! This is where we want to see your candid photos! It allows you to identify the students in the photos and give a brief description. Please include grade levels, teachers and names... this is just a start to the many new things coming to the Welder yearbooks!!

Sinton High School Awarded Grant for Garden
Sinton High School has been awarded a $2,915 grant from Lowe’s to expand a garden located on campus. The grant is funded through the Lowe’s Toolbox for Education program which is part of the Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation (LCEF). Now in its 12th year of helping build better schools and communities, the Lowe's Toolbox for Education program has provided over $54 million to more than 12,000 schools across the country.
The Sinton High School garden was created in September 2017 through a generous donation of raised beds, soil, and mulch by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. The grant from Lowe’s will be used to build a fence around the garden, build more raised vegetable beds, and help create an educational outreach program for Welder Elementary students. If you have any questions or you would like additional information, you may contact Ashley Cox at firstname.lastname@example.org or 361-364-6650.
