Hi Marshdale Families,

Thank you to everyone who completed the feedback portion of last Friday's attendance. It sounds like things were a little more manageable and the "must do" list was helpful. There are some tweaks we'll continue to make as we go. I want to make sure our teachers hear loud and clear how grateful we all are to have them putting in the effort and time to make this work. I know getting videos posted has been a huge lift for our kiddos, so thank you. Parents, you've been asked to take on quite a bit during this process, so thank you as well. Remember, Monday is a non-contact day, so no attendance necessary. I'll send communication on Tuesday about how you can get the stuff left at school. Only a few notes this evening; one regarding the Jeffco Grab and Go food program and one from our PTA. 

West Jefferson Elementary offers Grab-and-Go Meals to ANYONE in the community EVERY Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10:30-1.  They offer breakfast and lunch!  It is a drive-up service near the main entrance of the school.

The Day Without Hate District Committee, a group of high school students who have been working all year to plan the event, is still hosting the day on April 24, 2020. They are working to set up a virtual DWOH (or #DWOHathome as some of them are calling it) with videos and social media challenges for Peace Week of April 20th-24th.  Then they will be releasing a live YouTube event on Friday for people to participate in.  They are asking that everyone wears their DWOH shirts and posts pictures of them.  Then, we may do a day once we are back at school (August, September, or whenever) where we ask the whole district to wear their DWOH shirts to school to honor Day Without Hate.

Everyone at Marshdale Elementary that turned in their shirt orders by March 13th will still be receiving their shirts.  Shirts will be delivered to PTA.  PTA will sort shirts and then deliver, following all social distancing guidelines.  If you did not order a shirt and would still like to, you may place an individual orders through the DWOH website  http://daywithouthate.org/  starting April 7th.   Shirts will still cost $5.00 but you will be charged a shipping fee.  They will be shipped to you directly.   8,000 shirts were screened before the virus hit and before schools were closed.  Any help in supporting the small business the DWOH organization purchased the shirts from would be greatly appreciated during these difficult times to help cover the cost of all the shirts.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Melissa Moore at missysoo@hotmail.com.


I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and a great start to the new year. We are expecting some tired children this first week back. As we welcome students back, time will be spent going over expectations and routines. Our Student Leadership group worked on creating posters that will be hung in different locations around the building to help set a positive tone for the new year. Students will put their thumb prints on the posters to help create a sense of ownership. Make sure to look for them next time you're in the building. A huge Thank You to the Weeks family for donating their time on printing the posters.
