Kendallvue Community Updates

February 12 - 25, 2023

Dance, Dance, Dance!

Dear Kendallvue Families,

The dance was a huge success! Thank you to all the WATCH D.O.G.S. who helped organize and set up. A big shout out to Michael Murphy for getting this and the Donuts with Parents event up and running. Please make sure to check out the TeamKendallvue website to stay up to date on events and other "happening" at Kendallvue.

This week we have parent/teacher conferences. This is always a great time to check in with your students' teacher and continue to enrich the partnership between school and home. This is an important time of the year as we close out the second trimester and enter our last trimester of the school year. It is hard to believe there are only four months of school left. We have a big push until spring break and then testing in April and finish our work in May. And before we know it, it's summer!

I have included some updates on the district Regional Opportunities for Thriving Schools (ROFTS) process. This is the consolidation process with Peiffer. Things will look different next year, but I do believe for the better. We will have more conversation about this during our SAC meeting in March.

This Friday is a teacher work day, so there is no school for students. Enjoy the four day weekend!

Front Office Updates

Book Fair

  • Our Book Fair will be March 6-10 this year. We are also inviting the Peiffer community to come and check out the Book Fair. Students will come to the school on Monday, March 6 to preview the fair. We are hoping to have Kendallvue students preview the fair on Friday, March 3rd. Your student's teacher will have more information in the coming weeks.

Jeffco Family Survey

  • Please take some time to complete the Jeffco Family Survey. This survey will remain open until March 3. Use this link for the survey.

Summer Construction

  • As part of the 2018 bond, Jeffco Schools will be enhancing our secured entrance over the summer. This construction project is broader than just our main entrance. The school will get new carpet throughout the school. We will get a new cafeteria floor, gym floor, and a new floor in the art room. We will get new lighting throughout the building. Our classrooms will get new cabinets and a wardrobe cabinet for storage. Our kitchen will also get upgrades with a new walk-in freezer, cooler, and dry storage area.
  • Construction starts on May 31 and will go all through the summer. I will keep you posted on the progress as we get closer to the start of school in August.

  • Thanks to Michael Murphy and all our great WATCH Dogs for organizing two awesome events this past Friday. Our Donuts with Parents event and the Family Valentine's Dance were both well attended events.
  • Parents, you can always sign up to be a WATCH Dog at school. It is a great time to be with your child(ren) and enjoy the day with them. Join the team at
  • There is time for a whole day, lunch/recess time, or the morning or afternoon. We always appreciate our volunteers for anytime they are able to be at school.

SAC Updates

ROFTS Process
  • Regional Opportunities for Thriving Schools is the acronym adopted for the consolidation process. Our School Accountability Committee (SAC) has met twice over the last two months and discussed our budget, enrollment, and staffing issues at Kendallvue.
  • Our enrollment is increasing by 100 or more students. A key value of our community is small class sizes. We will continue to make this a priority while also balancing the trade offs that come with smaller sized classes.
  • Our staff will increase by approximately 1 teacher per grade level (mostly at the primary level K-3). We will continue to prioritize mental health supports and other outside the classroom supports for our students and teachers.
  • We will have a full time art, music, and PE (AMP) next year! These are exciting opportunities for our school. We have the space to accommodate all our new students and with our new construction over the summer, the school will look quite a bit different.
  • As always, if you have any questions or concerns please reach out to the school.

From Carmody Middle School

Carmody Middle School is hosting a community night on Wednesday, February 22nd, from 5:00pm - 6:30pm. The focus for parents/guardians is Technology and Mental Health. School Resource Officers Goodrich and Ezell will be speaking about trends they're seeing and the law enforcement role when it comes to tech/social media issues that arise in schools (what they can and cannot do), and our Student Support Team will be talking about the impact on mental health, tech addiction, and providing resources for home. This presentation is meant for any parent/guardian who has a student/students who use technology or social media.
