Judges needed! – Wheat Ridge High School 8th Annual Senior Capstone Night

Dear Wheat Ridge Community Member,

The Wheat Ridge High School Senior Capstone Project is an intensive, research-based project that demonstrates the culmination of our students’ academic achievement while at Wheat Ridge High School. The Capstone consists of extensive research, the creation of a product associated with this research, the organization of a portfolio detailing this process, and a presentation to the community. These Capstone presentations will take place on Monday, April 22rd from 5:00 pm to 8:15 pm. (Check in will begin at 4:30; dinner will be served at 5:00.) The entire senior class will present their projects that evening.

In order to make this night a success, we need volunteers from the Wheat Ridge and surrounding communities to listen to and evaluate our seniors as they present their projects. The topics vary from sustainable architecture to the effects of divorce on children, to the effects of music on learning. Over the last several years, many of you have played a valuable role in making this evening a success and we hope you would consider volunteering your time again. As a judge, you will join a panel of other community leaders and members to watch, listen, and provide feedback to the students as well as the senior teachers. Judges’ comments do not affect a student’s grade; however, feedback is important to the students as they develop the public speaking and presentation skills necessary for the real world. There are no requirements to be a judge other than a willingness to participate and enjoy the evening.

Once again, your participation is an essential part to this enjoyable evening and gives you a chance to learn more about the students in our community. To show our gratitude, we will be providing dinner before the presentations begin. If you would like to volunteer, please respond to Teri Shriner at tshriner@jeffco.k12.co.us. Additionally, if you have colleagues, friends, or family members who would like to participate please forward this information to them.

Thank you in advance for your support of this event as well as Wheat Ridge High School. Please know that even if you are not able to devote the entire evening to acting as a judge you are welcome to observe a few of our senior presentations.

Again, please let us know by responding to this email if you can judge that evening.
