Yes, there is going to be a yearbook this year! Events may be cancelled, but we will still tell the story of this historic year through the voices of our students, and it is going to be GREAT! Because of COVID, we will be ordering VERY FEW extra copies to sell at the end of the year. It is UNLIKELY there will be a yearbook available if you do not pre-order.
  • The deadline to pre-order a yearbook is March 1st.
  • To pre-order a yearbook, log on to your student's Jeffco Connect Account. The yearbook is listed as a Fee. Please contact Kathy Abeyta in the finance office with any questions about purchasing a yearbook.

ChaKotaBine is coming soon! This year we are unable to have a three school dance like the past. In place of a dance we will have a philanthropic Socks and Toiletries Drive with items being donated going to the Jeffco Action Center. 

We are asking Chatfield's, Dakota's, and Columbine's feeder elementary schools to donate socks, middle schools to donate toiletries, and the high schools to donate both items. Our drive will be held from March 1st through March 6th. There will be donation bins around the school and in the front office.
