April 8th is the deadline for the 2015 Jeffco Writing Challenge!

Students can win up to $100.00 for each grade level.
Schools with the most participants win $500.00! 
Purpose:  To engage young authors in creative and authentic writing for the love of writing expression! 
Last year hundreds of Jeffco students wrote stories and poems and competed for prizes.  This year, we hope for even more!
Prizes include $100.00 for first prize!

This year's prompt: Write a crossover.
  • A crossover combines elements like characters or setting from two or more stories.
  • There's no limit to how creative you can get with this.
  • You can combine characters from any genre (fiction or nonfiction), and place them in any setting you choose.
For example:
  • What might happen if Curious George found himself in Oz with Dorothy and Toto?
  • What if Bella Swan, Jacob, and Edward had all met at Hogwarts? Or if Harry, Hermione, and Ron had lived in the world of Divergent?
  • What if Thomas Edison (or Dracula, or Tom Sawyer) had been on board the Titanic?
  • What if instead of boys landing on the island in Lord of the Flies, it had been the girls from The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants?
The Jeffco Writing Challenge is open to all Jefferson County School students in K-12.
Poetry, short stories, or dramas (up to 1000 words max) are all welcome.
Deadline for submissions is April 8, 2015.

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!!!

 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!"
