Bus Pass Reminder

If your student is taking a different bus or getting off at a different stop, we must have a written note giving the student permission. All notes need to be turned into the office first thing in the morning.



The window is open for all families to use EnrollJeffco with their existing Jeffco Connect account to let the district know what school their students want to attend in the upcoming school year. This will also replace the previous Choice Enrollment process.

Please complete using EnrollJeffco by Friday, February 8th.

If your student is currently in the GT Center program at our school or you have a fifth-grade student that is anticipating enrollment in our GT Center program, please choose "West Jefferson Middle School GT Center" as your student's first choice. You can edit your choices until the window closes on Friday, February 8. If this applies to your student and you do not choose our school's GT Center as your student's first choice school, you will be contacted to confirm whether you want your student's first choice to our school's GT Center for the 2019-2020 school year.

There will be a PTA Restaurant Night on Thursday, February 7th at Golden Stix. Please mention West Jeff Middle PTA with your dine-in or carry-out order from 4:30 pm until close and the restaurant will donate a portion of your order value to help our school. Thank you for your support!

We will be selling Val-O-Grams February 12th, 13th, and 14th during lunches. These $1 - $3 treat packages will be delivered to students and staff members on Valentine's Day during 6th period.

Our next PTA meeting is Thursday, February 21st at 2:30 pm in the library. There's no pressure to volunteer, just come and check out what's going on.

The School Store will be open at the end of the school day on Friday, February 22nd. Students can purchase snacks and inexpensive items right after school in the lobby.
