Culinary Delights for Parent-Teacher Conferences
We are looking for families to sign up for Parent-Teacher Conference meals on Tuesday, Oct. 7th - Thursday, Oct. 9th. The teachers truly appreciate all the goodies we bring in so they can stop by the Lounge between conferences and grab a quick bite.
We need appetizers, salads, main dishes and desserts, as well as help with setup and cleanup each day We are flexible on cleanup time if you are in the building for a conference after 7:00 and can spare 20 minutes to help with covering food, rinsing dishes and tidying the Lounge so it is ready for the next day.
Email Deb Schein or call 720-308-5635 if you have questions. Click the button below to sign up online. Thank you!
Kids This Thursday & Friday
Want to know more about how some citizens are organizing in protest to Jeffco School Board's recent actions? Learn more about Boots on the Boulevard at Jeffco PTA.
When: Thursday Oct 2. 4:30 pm
Where: Education Center
1829 Denver West Blvd., Golden, CO 80401
Before the Board meeting, there will be a community rally and press conference. Participants will march (with signs) to Colfax and back to the Ed Center before the meeting.
Let the Board know how you feel, whether you support their actions or oppose. They need to hear from all Jeffco citizens, not just vocal minorities. Please take a few moments to make a difference in the future of Jeffco schools.
Jeffco PTA has posted a blog on Denver Post with additional information.
Thousands of high students from several Jeffco high schools have missed classes to participate in organized protests against a proposal that was introduced by board member Julie Williams at the Sept. 20 school board meeting. The proposal was to create a committee to review Advanced Placement history curriculum and classroom materials, and make changes similar to changes adopted by the Texas Board of Education. Teachers are also concerned about a new pay structure that many believe will not support our most experienced, educated teachers.

Wow, What a Great Coyote 5K Classic Weekend!
Thanks to Jill Ziegenfuss and her amazing team of volunteers, the 5th Annual Coyote 5K Classic was a huge success! Jill is being honored on our Volunteer Spotlight page
The weekend kicked off with Shelton students marching in Golden High School's Homecoming parade. Saturday night, dozens of Shelton families enjoyed pizza and pasta at Lil' Riccis.
On race day, hundreds of runners and spectators came out on a beautiful late summer morning to support Shelton. Runners aged 3 to 72 tackled the hilly course and many won medals, gift certificates and running shoes. The silent auction items and raffle baskets also went into the hands of many happy winners.
Thanks to our sponsors!
