Every Member Drawing for Biz Mix

How does it work? – We have names of all WRBA members, Yes ALL member; not just the ones who are there, in the barrel and during the event, we’ll draw one (1) name. If your name is called and you are present, you win $100 cash! If you are not there, then we’ll return the name to the barrel for next month’s drawing and add the unclaimed $100 to the following month’s $100 and the prize next month becomes $200, and so on. To claim the cash, you must be present and must be a WRBA member in good standing (with dues current). Not only it’s a free event, you as a WRBA member may win cash for just being there.

*If you are up for renewal prior to this, please renew your membership to make sure your membership is in good standing. If you are not a member, yet, join before the drawing then we will add your name to the barrel.

We are up to $400 this month!

Sign up NOW! – Volunteer judges needed for WRHS Capstone Project!

Dear WRHS Farmer Supporter,

 

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 May 2, 2024, from 5:15-8:00 PM, we will also have a dinner for our volunteers from 4:30-5:05 PM. 

In order to make this evening a success, we depend on 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 music on learning. Over the years, many of you have played a valuable role in making this evening a success, and we hope you will 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 experience and gives you a chance to learn more about the students in our community.

If you would like to volunteer, please fill out this FORM. 

Additionally, if you have colleagues, friends, or family members who would like to participate please feel free to forward this email 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 judging you are welcome to observe a few of our senior presentations.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Jennifer Marquez.
