After a year of planning, Wheat Ridge High School, in collaboration with the Jeffco Career Links Team, completed and celebrated their 12th annual Senior Capstone presentations. This year required a lot of flexibility, ingenuity, collaboration, and determination not only from teachers, but from students as well. This year’s seniors were faced with multiple learning environments and a significantly reduced number of in-person learning opportunities. The WRHS 12th grade English Language Arts team wanted to continue the Capstone tradition and ensure that it was a high-quality experience that continued to challenge and support their students' learning targets. This commitment allowed students to research their passions and career aspirations, connect with industry partners, reflect on Jeffco Generation Skills, create a learning portfolio, and create an artifact from their learning.

On April 9 and 23, 200 students and 80 community members converged in multiple Zoom rooms to bring the Capstone journey to life. The entire Capstone team and students were unsure of how this new journey would play out; however, the results from their hard work and impact from the event can only be summarized as “this was a win.” During a year with such difficulty and feelings of defeat, our students sent the message that, as an educational system, we are not defeated and learning has taken place. Their resilience shining through was a huge win for our entire school!
