Spirit Day

Good evening, West Jeff Middle families. This is your Weekly Wednesday Update for October 18th, 2017.

Spirit Day

Tomorrow is Spirit Day, an event started in 2010 to take a stand against bullying and to show support for LGBTQ students. If you would like, you can wear purple tomorrow to show support for this movement.

In PTA News

Please see the October 18, 2017 PTA Supplement to the Weekly Wednesday Update for information on upcoming events and volunteer opportunities, including:

  • October 19: PTA meeting, 7 pm in the library; a good showing is necessary for evening meetings to become a regular occurrence.

  • October 20: Movie Night, 6:30-8:30 pm - doors open at 6 pm and we will be showing Despicable Me 2. Admission is $2 and a permission slip is required.

  • October 27, 30, 31: Boo Bag pre-sales with delivery during 6th period October 31.

  • November 3: Turkey Trot fun run, 8:00 - 11:00 am.

Turkey Trot

The PTA is trying something else new this year! Rather than tons of little fundraisers (and constant harassment), we are hosting a Turkey Trot fun run on November 3rd. It is our hope that this fun-filled event, complete with t-shirts, wristbands, teacher excursions, and other amazing prizes will be great fun for the kids as well as serving as a community-building event for our families! (In other words, please join your student for the race!) In order for this event to be a success though, we need your donations. Our working budget this year is almost $25,000 and our goal for this event is $20,000. Please consider sponsoring your student and asking a few of your favorite businesses to sponsor the event in exchange for race day or online advertising. All students who raise over $10 will get a wristband, $50 gets them a t-shirt, more and they get access to various parties (see packet for full details).

Community Events

StageDoor Theatre: the StageDoor Junior Company is putting on Madagascar Jr. with performances on November 3, 4, 10, and 11.

Jeffco Public Schools Food and Nutrition Services: Are you interested in working for Food and Nutrition Services? Learn about the job, apply and interview in one visit at one of the weekly sessions held throughout October and November on Tuesdays from 10:00 - 11:30 am at 809 Quail Street in Lakewood.
