As we kicked off Fall with gorgeous weather, we also has some amazing experiences for our students and whole school community.  Our year kicked off with some great fun as our kindergarteners experienced their first field trip...the the PUMPKIN PATCH! Then our 2nd graders experienced the Medlin School House -a quaint experience with Conifer' past and school as it used to be. The next weekend, our 100 Mile Club and others met at Flying J Ranch for our first Weekend Run and students earned 2-3 miles toward their 100 mile goal. We already have two students at 50 Miles and others quickly adding up to 100. Our Garden Club had their first Farmer's Market and raised some money to support expansion of the garden and making it easier to use as a learning space. The turn-out was great and we sold produce from our own West Jeff Garden as well as donations from others' gardens and birdhouses made by our own 5th graders during math. You should be able to find some pictures from these events on our main page. Talk about Epic Adventures in Education!

Now, as we enter October, our students will be participating in our 2nd Annual Superhero Sprint. We have had lots of fun getting excited about the chance to run through the school and raising money for even more improvements to our playground, track and fun, healthy learning experiences. As October closes, students will be sharing their learning from the first EL Education Module during Parent-Teacher-Student Conferences. Learn more about EL Education by clicking here--- Then it is off to our Trunk-Or-Treat and our Fall Celebrations. We love involving our whole Conifer and surrounding community in the fun we have with learning.

We are excited about the opportunities ahead at West Jefferson Elementary. Please feel free to reach out and contact me with any questions, comments or ideas. We are always looking for ways to better meet the needs of students and families as we embrace the Jeffco Generations Vision.

Looking forward to seeing you all,
