   CONGRATULATIONS JWC WRITERS!

Thank you to all the young writers, teachers and administrators who participated in the 2016 JWC writing contest!  The writing entries just keep getting better! Student prizes and school donations will be presented at the May 3rd awards ceremony.


Students, there were so many amazing entries that it was very difficult for judges to decide this year!  


Over 1500 Jefferson county students wrote short fiction and poetry imagining time travel

adventures for the JWC writing contest this spring! The Jeffco Writing Challenge

(JWC) Awards ceremony will host Len Vlahos, award winning young adult author and

new co-owner of Denver institution, The Tattered Cover bookstore, as keynote speaker

and Charlee Burnor of Alice 105.9 as MC.


The JWC contest is sponsored by Education Nonprofit Corporation (ENC), in collaboration with Jefferson county educators. In this, the JWC Writing Challenge’s third year, the number of entries continued to grow.


“Entries are up by 50% over last year,” said Jody Thomas, adjunct English Professor and

ENC consultant. “It’s great to see the community really embracing the Challenge this

way.”


Len Vlahos supports the Jeffco Writing Challenge because "in an age of texts, tweets, and

emojis, we, as a society, need to do everything we can to cultivate literacy and literature

in young people. The JWC Young Writer Contest is a perfect vehicle to encourage

students to celebrate the written word."


Last year’s winners and their parents report how participation in the Jeffco Writing

Challenge helps students think of themselves as real writers, as well as appreciating all

the hard work that goes into writing well.


After winning a prize as a 4th grader last year, Savannah Scripter said "I would like to be

known for my writing. This goal is not beyond reach, as I won first place in a district

wide writing contest. I am a very good writer." Her mother, Holly, adds that Savannah is

learning about "what it means to be a good writer, including having an ever-expanding

vocabulary, developing editing skills, and continually revising.”


Emma Camp Obenhauser, 6th grade winner last year, said "My favorite part was just

seeing how the entire story turned out, because I didn't know what was going to happen to

Dorothy at the very beginning when I started writing." Emma also reported feeling "very

happy that somebody recognized me for my writing." Emma's mom saw a big change as

a result of her participation in the Writing Challenge: "It had a huge positive impact! She

believes herself to be a good writer and I know that she believes that in large part because

of winning this award."

  ENC HELPS ROCKY MOUNTAIN DEAF SCHOOL FUND A NEW BUILDING


Rocky Mountain Deaf School (RMDS) started classes in a brand new facility in Lakewood this past December.  RMDS educates deaf students from nine Colorado districts.  The school's staff, students, and school community have worked tirelessly towards this goal.  Help from ENC, other community organizations, and a grant from the BEST program (Best Excellent Schools Today Program) through the Colorado Department of Education made it possible for staff and students to move into the new state of the art building on Dec. 3rd, 2014. 

After 8 years in a strip mall off of Youngfield St. in Golden,  RMDS is thrilled to call their new 46,000 square foot facility home.  Unlike their last few homes, this space was designed specifically to meet the needs of deaf students.
Between 2009 and 2012, ENC donated $17,500 in matching funds to RMDS.  Nine thousand seven hundred and fifty dollars of these funds went towards the new building. 

Alison Talbert, business manager of Rocky Mountain Deaf School, explained that ENC donations also provided summer school programs for RMDS students as well as physical education equipment, and elective classes taught in ASL for the High School students.  "Many of the RMDS students are unable to participate in traditional summer programs due to communication barriers. Students will now be better prepared for the school year since they were able to participate in the summer program at the RMDS.  Over the past few years, Rocky Mountain Deaf School has been supported by Education Nonprofit Corporation by keeping arts, PE and after school programs funded.  Like most schools, programs like art and physical education, are the hardest hit when budgets are tight.  Thanks to the generous support from ENC, Rocky Mountain Deaf School students are still able to benefit from these valuable programs". - Alison Talbert.

When you support ENC, you support terrific work like this.  Congratulations, RMDS!





 We may be holding another raffle to benefit education soon!

Check back soon for times and locations.

 A special congratulations to

Laura Lacerte , who won one of the iPad Minis from ENC!!!

ENC donated $48,000 in matching funds in 2011

 

 How did the Schools use the funds?  

 

ENC donated $48,000.00 to Golden public schools in June 2011.  The following schools applied for and received funds: Rocky Mountain Deaf School, Mitchell Elementary, Kyffin Elementary, Bell Middle School, Compass Montessori, Free Horizon Montessori, Ralston Elementary, Maple Grove Elementary, Shelton Elementary, Welchester Elementary, and Coal Creek Canyon K-8.

 

Rocky Mountain Deaf School (RMDS) was the first Golden public school to apply for matching funds from ENC.  Alison Talbert, business manager of RMDS, explained that they will provide summer school and physical education equipment with the ENC matching funds.  Many RMDS students are unable to participate in traditional summer programs due to communication barriers.They will be better prepared for the school year now that they are able to participate in the summer program at the RMDS.

 

Kyffin Elementary will use the ENC donated funds for additional smart boards for teachers to use in the classrooms and for teacher training.  ENC’s “generosity over the years has positively impacted the students atKyffin Elementary,” noted Principal Valerie Braginetz.  “On behalf of the Kyffin School Community, thank you,” she writes, “for supporting our efforts to provide a quality education for our students that prepares them for a life full of choices and opportunities.”

 

Bell Middle School will give $1,000.00 of the donation to art, music, PE, and band/orchestra.  Principal Bridget Jones is “quite delighted to see that you are supporting these important areas of education.  As you are aware, our schools are suffering severe budget cuts on local, state andfederal levels – your generosity could not come at a better time.  The remaining funds, we will apply to technology for the classrooms.  We arein desperate need of student laptops.  The money last year fundedNetbooks for Science and we could complete the set for the science department,” Principal Jones explained.

 

Ralston Elementary plans to use ENC matching funds to partner with“Kidpower” and teach kindergartners through 6th grade students tools to keep themselves emotionally and physically safe and build their peer interaction, boundary setting, and self-advocacy skills.  Karen Quanbeck, Principal of Ralston Elementary School, explained, “(n)ot only willthese skills promote positive peer interactions in school, but they willalso improve life skills of our students outside the classroom.”  Principal Quanbeck plans to use the remaining funds "to support literacy in the form of books purchased for guided reading and adding paraprofessional time to help with the increased class sizes.”  Ralston Elementary will also allocate $1,000.00 of thematching funds towards arts, music, band, and physical education programs.

 

PTA President Tracy A. Fletcher reports that improving school technology, making up budget shortfalls, and allocating $1,000.00 for arts, music and physical education programs is the focus for Mitchell Elementary, who received $4,000.00 in ENC matching funds.

 

Kresta S. M. Vuolo, Director of Enrollment and Communication at Free Horizon Montessori, tells us that Free Horizon plans to create new after school clubs focusing on performing arts with $1,000 of their ENC matching funds.  With the remaining $3,000, Free Horizon will purchase six tablet computers for students to use in their new middle school program.

 

Both Pleasant View Elementary and Maple Grove Elementary plan to use the $4,000 in ENC matching funds for technology.

 

Compass Montessori will use their ENC donation for technology and for art, music, and PE.  Specifically, Compass will be purchasing much needed network switches for their server to expand their server capacity for student personal laptops.

 

Shelton Elementary combines music and technology in their plans: Shelton will purchase a computer for their band teacher to run new technology programs that give students feedback as they play their instruments.

 

Welchester Elementary will use $3,000 to assist with para-professional support and half-day planning assemblies.  “The donation will assist inpreventing a ‘dip’ in student performance due to increased class sizes and lost staff support,” explained Jodie Matsuo, PTA Vice President atWelchester.  The remaining $1,000 from the ENC donation will assist the arts, music, PE, and band/orchestra.

 

Clear Creek Canyon K- 8 has specific plans to purchase recorders and other instruments, buy music education books and art supplies, and replace worn PE equipment.  New laptop computers will also be purchased.  $500 will be used for an extra all school assembly or for field trip fees.  Gwen Burak, PTSA President, had this to say: “This past year we used matching funds to schedule a drama assembly by CU on Cyrano de Bergerac which was fantastic – thank you!"

THANK YOU NOTES FROM SCHOOLS:


ENC HAS DONATED TO BELL MIDDLE SCHOOL`S "SCIENCE IS FUN" PROGRAM FOR FIVE YEARS. FROM BELL MIDDLE SCHOOL:


Science is Fun, Science is Everywhere!
Science is everywhere in today’s world.  At Bell Middle School we strive to help students transfer their learning in our science classes to their daily lives.  This means observing and making sense of the science in cooking, gardening, recycling, health and wellness, weather events and more.  Science and technology are transforming our lives at an incredible pace and we want to make sure our students are prepared for the future.  It is essential that our students can transfer their science learning to the real world problems that our communities face today.
In order to assist our students in seeing that science is everywhere (and fun) we want to give them an opportunity to explore how science impacts their world and then share their new found knowledge , skills and understanding with community members, both young and old.  This year students in our 7th grade honors classes will be choosing a real world issue and then creating science models/investigations that can be used to demonstrate the science behind the issue for their community.   Additionally our iSTEM students are participating in a science fair this year and are currently designing scientific investigation related to a real world problem and/or question.  Both of these activities are helping our students learn to think critically about science and the role that it plays in our world.   
The Educational Non-Profit Corporation provides the money for  supplies to assist them with these important tasks.  Without this support, we would not be able to provide the enrichment for our students.

For the past couple years our fund-raising has been focused on technology for both classroom and Library Information Center (LIC) use. In addition we have provided new playground equipment.  We also provide funding for books for the classrooms, field trip bus assistance, author visits, science fair, Welchester University, field day and serve as host to several family events including donuts for dads, mornings with moms and goodies forgrandparents.
