Turkey Trot

Good evening, West Jeff Middle families. This is your Weekly Wednesday Update for November 1st, 2017.

Early release day

Friday, November 3rd is an early release day. School will dismiss at 11:50am. There are no lunch services on early release days.

Choir performance

Tuesday, November 7th is our choir concert, 6:30pm – 8:00pm in the cafetorium.


This year the Yearbook staff’s goal is to include every student at WJMS in the 2017-2018 yearbook. In order to do so, we would love to have you be included in the book with your hobby and/or sport. If you would like to be featured on the Hobbies/Sports page, please email the picture to Mrs. Kavanaugh or leave a hard copy in Mrs. Kavanaugh’s mailbox. Make sure to get a permission slip signed, they are available on the school website and in the main office.

Buss Pass and Attendance Reminder

If your student is riding a different bus or getting off at a different stop, the office must have permission in writing, and these notes need to be turned into the office first thing in the morning.

If your student is absent from school, please be sure to call the attendance line at 303-982-3051. Please note that if a reason for the absence is not given, the absence will be unexcused.

Book Fair

Thank you for visiting, volunteering, and supporting our Scholastic Book Fair at the start of October! Our sales provided just over $2000 in Scholastic credit that will be used for library purchasing, including classroom book sets, and 66 new books that will start circulating from our library in November.

Box Tops for Education

Thank you to our families and community members that contributed to the $215 value in Box Tops we sent in our fall submission. Please keep clipping and sending them in - our spring submission will be shipped on February 28, 2018. You can see the Box Top totals collected by Advise on the Box Tops for Education page on the school website.
