Attention Werner Jazz Cat Choir Families-Cocoa and Caroling Concert


Our choir concert this year will be on Thursday, December 16th at 2:30 at Werner Elementary School. With our current health and safety guidelines, we are no longer allowed to perform without our masks unless we are outside. So we are going to embrace this opportunity to have an outdoor cocoa and caroling concert. It might be a bit chilly, but we are going to dress for the weather and enjoy a live and in-person performance. Cocoa and cider will be available for students and families. Grab your cup of cheer and watch the concert. We will videotape the performance and make the recording available for anyone who is unable to attend.

Thank you for your flexibility and support for an opportunity for our students to have choir in a time that presents challenges and continues to take away experiences for our children. We look forward to sharing this fun event with you!

Attire: Students should wear jeans and their choir shirt to school that day and then wear weather appropriate clothing for our outside concert.

Date: Thursday, December 16th

Time: 2:30

A Note from Our Health Office

Student Illness

Students who develop COVID-like symptoms while at school will need to go home. This includes: new or worsening cough, upset stomach, sore throat, runny nose, congestion, and headache. Some of these symptoms overlap with other health conditions such as seasonal allergies or anxiety. If your student has a known health condition, it needs to be documented with a note from a medical provider and turned in to the Health Office in order for your student to remain at Werner with these symptoms. You can look up the health conditions on record for your child by logging in to ParentVue, click on ‘Health’, then click on ‘Health Conditions’.

"Return to Learn" Guidance

If your child is experiencing illness symptoms, please refer to the CDPHE Return to Learn Guidance for helpful pointers as to whether your child can return to school or not.

Library Volunteers Needed!

The Werner library is excited to welcome back our seasoned volunteers and bring new ones on board! We would love your help shelving books and performing other library tasks anytime throughout the school day. We are happy to accommodate all schedules and availability.

Please email Amy at arider@psdschools.org if interested.

Due to the district’s covid restrictions, volunteers must also sign up here this year:


All volunteers must wear a mask while inside a PSD building.

Pictures Needed

Throughout the year, our yearbook committee collects pictures. Please share your pictures of your student to our Werner Photo Album.
