New Year, New Cafeteria!

New Year = New Cafeteria! The students came back to school January 8th to a new cafeteria! The Fuel up to Play 60 Student Team led this mini-makeover. Their “fuel up” goal this year is:

“It all about your choices – go nutritious” 

They choose the cafeteria as their first area of focus. They wanted a fresh, fun, welcoming, healthy school cafeteria – and boy did they deliver! There is a farm to table theme throughout – a colorful farm scape mural, farm stand with menu board, restaurant style faux wood wall near the serve line and of course an amazing farmer wolf on the wall (drawn by the amazing Mr. Josh Stolte – 5th grade teacher). The entire student body voted on the new name of the cafeteria – Wolf Pack Café.

We have many people to thank who made this possible: all the volunteer painters – especially the family of Emy Lee (2nd grader) for their artistic talent on the mural wall, Lowe’s Home Improvement, VinylWorks, Western Dairy Association/Fuel up to Play 60, DeCino Family Dentistry, iOrthodontics, Sherwin-Williams, Ms. Carrie Wallace, Ms. Deb Wilson, Jeffco Facilities and Paint Department and the entire Fuel up to Play 60 Student Team – YOU made this dream come to life!

 

BEFORE PICTURES:

For some reference, here are some before shots of the cafeteria. Don’t think anyone will miss the PEACH PAINT, huh?

Seeking Volunteers for Mileage Club

Mileage Club

This fall we will once again have Mileage Club on Wednesdays during lunch recess for all grades! We will need volunteers supervising the course (sidewalk around the field to the east of the school) and volunteers tracking kids/class laps – as there are rewards for classes/grades with the most laps (ex. eat outside during lunch, winner of the Golden Shoe, etc.).

Mileage Club is an optional activity for the students. If they choose to participate they can walk, jog, skip, hop, run – whatever they choose!

We need volunteers for 2 shifts:
10:30am-12:00pm (Kinder – 3rd Grade Recess)
12:00pm – 1:15pm (4th – 6th Grade Recess)

Would you like to get some steps/laps in yourself? Feel free to come walk or jog a lap with your child’s class. Any adult laps tracked count 5x for that class:)

Thank you in advance for your help for making this a safe, fun and active recess option for all of the kids at West Woods!

-West Woods Healthy School Team
