Do you know what it feels like to have a whole day named after you? As of today, Prairie View High School Principal Jaime White can tell you.
The City Government of Commerce City Council proclaimed today, December 14, 2018, as Jaime White Day.
Principal White was surprised with the proclamation during an assembly which became a moving display of appreciation by Prairie View High staff and students as well as surprise guests from White’s family and 27J.
The proclamation was made in recognition of White’s unwavering leadership and tireless efforts on behalf of the students and staff at Prairie View High. She embraces a culture of high expectations and a goal of and evidence and experiential-based learning environment. Under her leadership, PVHS has seen a 76% year-over-year reduction in tardy attendance and has seen a 298% year-over-year increase of students taking advantage of concurrent enrollment certificate programs.
Congratulations, Principal Jaime White from all of 27J! And Happy Jaime White Day everyone!

Remember back to childhood having fun with friends playing hopscotch and other games at school?
Second Creek Elementary PTO members worked with Second Creek AP Sal Conca and a parent-artist to help their students make more of those memories.
“I wanted to give them games that are fun and easy and that kids would enjoy,” said parent-artist Amanda Bair. “It means a lot to me to do this because our schools do so much for our kids.”

27J schools are always looking for those “extra pairs of hands” that are greatly appreciated. Please contact your local school to find out how you can get involved.
Seven oversized games were painted near Second Creek playgrounds for students to play. The group effort to create the games included (L to R): PTO board members Janina Lucero, Mellisa Lubick, parent-artist Amanda Bair, Tiffany Dudley, Second Creek Assistant Principal Sal Conca, and Abby Engle.
