West Jeff PTA

Welcome! We invite you to support the West Jefferson Middle School community however you feel best.

Regular meetings will be held on the third Tuesday of the month during the school year at 6 pm via Zoom, subject to adjustment to accommodate school events and holidays. Dates are published on this page, our Calendar page, the school website (and its calendar page), and on our Facebook page.

What's coming up soon?

Voting is underway on our contest Flipgrid for our snow sculpture challenge. Winners by overall votes and categories will have a hand-crafted trophy mailed to them!

Please visit the West Jefferson Middle School spiritwear page at Educational Outfitters to view, select customized options (size, color and graphic) and order spiritwear products. Payment for the product(s) and shipping is done online. The turnaround time from your order to fulfillment is about two weeks.

The Watch D.O.G.S. program seeks adult volunteers that can give an hour at the beginning or end of the school day to help drop-off and pick-up run smoothly. Please contact Bryan Broyles at torgeaux@hotmail.com with questions or interest.

Students will follow a modified six-period schedule on Thursday, April 29, published in the Weekly Wednesday Update on the school website. Students are asked to wear a white shirt or current/past event shirt to observe A Day Without Hate.

There will be no school on Friday, April 30 as a potential snow makeup / staff development day.

Please make lunch or dinner plans on Wednesday, May 5th for our PTA Restaurant Fundaiser. All orders at JJ Madwell's that mention West Jeff Middle School during their business hours (11 am to 8 pm) will have a portion of the sale donated to our PTA, which in turn supports programs and opportunities at our school.

Members of the Rotary Club of Conifer will be collecting nonperishable food, grocery store gift cards, and cash donations for a Rotary Food Drive outside the Aspen Park FirstBank, 25617 Conifer Rd, on Saturday, May 8 from 10 am to 3 pm. Donations will be distributed among the Mountain Resource Center's food pantry in Conifer, and LifeBridge and Widow’s Oil in Bailey. Please visit the May 8th Food Drive page on ConiferFest.com for more information.

Did you know that new bleachers are coming to the main athletic field at Conifer High School this summer? The Conifer Lobos Unified Boosters invites the community to make a donation or buy a bleacher seat this spring at clubchs.org/donate.

I want to...

We have an ongoing partnership with the Rotary Club of Conifer. The club provides volunteers and mentorship for our school's Interact Club and has awarded our PTA grant funds in several of the past years to support our educator grant program.

We thank Evergreen Orthodontic Specialists for sponsoring prizes in our Fall 2020 Clash of the Classrooms fundraiser. They provided gift cards to the highest overall fundraising homeroom, the highest overall individual fundraising student, and the highest fundraising homeroom class in each grade for each of the four weeks during the fundraiser: Additional information about the event is available on the Fundraising page on the school website.
