August, 2023

Dear West Woods Families,

Welcome to the 2023-24 school year! I am ecstatic to serve as your next principal in our West Woods community.  I have been a part of the Jeffco community as a teacher and administrator for over 25 years.  Throughout this time, I have had the privilege of working and learning with teachers, staff, students and families as we strive to prepare our students for their amazing futures.  I look forward to engaging in this learning and growth within our West Woods school and community.

“We shall walk together on this path of life, for all things are part of the universe and are connected with each other to form one whole unity.” Maria Montesorri

“We Are West Woods” is the foundation of our school-wide theme this year. As proud Wolves, we are a community of Kind, Grateful, Creative Explorers, Thinkers and Learners that will ALL strive to be the very best Writers, Artists, Musicians, Mathematicians, Readers, Scientists, Athletes, Friends and Globally Aware Citizens.  

As we begin our new school year, the West Woods staff is energized and deeply committed to being a unified community.  Our teachers and staff dedicate themselves to providing our students with a safe, positive learning environment that supports their growth academically and socially.   We know that the most important ingredient for students’ learning is their classroom teacher.  At West Woods, we have an amazingly talented and dedicated staff that work together to provide students with what is needed to support and challenge their learning during the school day. 

In addition, we value our established partnerships with our parent and school community to meet the academic and social/emotional needs of all students.  We welcome and appreciate our parent and community volunteers, and encourage you to volunteer through any of the many opportunities that are available within our school community.  Be on the lookout for ways you can volunteer your time if you so desire including through our West Woods Accountability Committee and amazing PTSA. 

I am excited to begin what will sure to be an incredible school year. Thank you for your commitment to West Woods.  I look forward to seeing all of you in the coming weeks.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at [email protected] or by phone 303-982-5649.  


Cheryl Clay, Principal
