Welcome Back Bobcats!

We have been gearing up to start another amazing school year! Following last year's Visioning Process that involved students, parents, staff and our community, we have created a list of priorities to guide us as we  move forward. These include the following:
1) Small Class Sizes leading to more individualized instruction, 2) Maintaining our Focus on Healthy Schools, 3) Creating Engaging and Challenging Learning Experiences for ALL and 4) Experiential, Hands-On Learning Opportunities for Students through Field Trips and Bringing Experts into our School from our Community.  Please click on THIS LINK for more information  and details about last year's outcomes and plans for this year.  

Our focus this year is on creating EPIC ADVENTURES IN EDUCATION!  We are looking forward to embracing Expeditionary Learning (EL) and continuing in our efforts to increase opportunities for students and staff to thrive! EL Education is hands-on, engaging, authentic and highly rigorous learning opportunities both in the classroom and out in our community. Learn more about EL on their website at
The 3 Core Values of EL Education are as follows:

  • Mastery of Knowledge and Skills
  • Character
  • High Quality Student Work


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,

Wendy Woodland
