Welcome  Bobcats!

We are not in full swing. Our 2017-2018 school year is off to a great start! The enthusiasm is contagious as we get have finally made it through our first month of school. We have some great new opportunities for all students this year as we are always looking for ways to better meet the needs of our students and families!

We are thrilled to be offering BREAKFAST  every morning from 8:15-8:45 every day for all students (bus riders too)! Families are welcome to join their children at breakfast too. Students who qualify for free or reduced lunch will get free breakfast as well.  We are also offering the 100 Mile Club for our students (beginning in Oct) in grade K-5. Please read more about this on the news section of our home page. 

Our Superhero Sprint Fundraiser is in full force. We have a goal to raise at least $10,000 to keep us from needing to do another fundraiser in the Spring! Also, kids will will great prizes and we will raise much needed money for technology, improving the school playgrounds, track and fields and our garden. If we raise enough funds, monies will go toward more movement and better learning experiences for kids!

Our PARCC (state testing) scores improved and our rating increased from "Improvement" to the highest rating of "Performance". Our teaching and support staff, as well as our students, have worked hard over the last year and continue in our efforts to improve the abilities of our students to perform on these tests. While we know that test scores to not tell the WHOLE story, we fully appreciate the importance they play in preparing our students for middle school, high school college and life! 

We are excited about the opportunities that await us this year at West Jefferson Elementary and we look forward to sharing a wonderful school year with you. 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 2020 Vision.

Looking forward to seeing you all,
