A Message From Principal Almon

Dear Commander Families, 
Last week was filled with so many celebrations! Our Black Student Alliance entertained and educated our student body with the first-ever Black History Month assembly. Special shout out to Lauren Hawkins and her husband for cooking up some amazing food for our BSA and BVIS visitors to enjoy before the assembly.

On Thursday night, our IB Diploma Candidates were celebrated for completing their extended essays, Community Activity and Service projects, and Theory of Knowledge exhibitions. These students, over the last two years, have written over 40,000 words for their extended essay, completed 120 CAS projects, 120 completed internal assessments, and a group 4 project. Our eSports team is showing tremendous growth and is highly competitive! Our Super Smash Bros. Ultimate teams are both currently 2-0 and ranked 10 & 11 in the league with over 150 teams!

JFK HOSA Future Health Professionals represented themselves at the HOSA State Leadership Conference last week with great professionalism, responsibility, and class! Over 1300 students from around the state of Colorado were in attendance, and the students who attended were outstanding! I also want to give a special shout-out to all of the parents who attended our PTSA meeting on Wednesday; we already have some exciting projects in the mix. 

Let’s continue to show our Commander PRIDE by attending the season opener and first Boys’ Volleyball game as a CHSAA-sanctioned JFK Sport on Thursday at 6:30 pm.

Have a Commander Kind of Day!

Tiffany Almon, Proud and Grateful Principal

She, her, hers, and why they matter

Take Command of Your Future!
