  • This is the last weekend to get a free book from the Jefferson County Library if you have a 4 year old. This year’s One Book Program choice is The Little Red Fort by Brenda Maier and Sonia Sanchez. Check your closest Jeffco Library location for open hours and go pick up a copy for your 4 year old to keep, by Sunday, Oct. 25th. Note: the Arvada Branch is open 10 am – 5 pm on Saturday, but has No Sunday hours.

  • Would you like to have a voice in shaping Secrest? Please mark your calendars to attend an important Zoom meeting on Monday, November 9 at 4pm. The Secrest Community Partnership Club (formerly known as the School Accountability Committee or SAC) helps the principal prioritize our goals for this year, provides feedback and ideas, and also helps prioritize next year's school budget. All family members as well as community members are welcome to "join the club." :)
