Tiger Tales May 19th

Dear Colfax Families,

Thank you to the parents and staff that organized the Yard Sale and everyone who came out to support the event on Saturday. I am proud to share that we raised more than $5,000 for Reading Partners next year!

We will host a Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast on Tuesday. If you volunteered this year, whether in a classroom, with Reading Partners, or helping out in other ways, please join us for breakfast as a small token of our appreciation. [Read more…]

Tiger Tales April 21st

Today marked our last day of testing for our 3rd grade ELA-S students who took the Colorado Spanish Language Arts Assessment and our 5th graders who took the CMAS Science tests. Please join us tomorrow for our last Tiger Tunnel at 2:55 to celebrate our intermediate students and their hard work!

Please make sure that you have completed and returned the DPS Parent Engagement and Satisfaction Survey. This survey is very important and affects our School Performance Framework (SPF) rating. Please complete this survey, seal it in the provided envelope (no staff member will look at your responses) and return it to your child’s teacher. This allows our school to ensure that all families have returned the survey. Your child will receive a raffle ticket once the survey is returned to the school and will be entered to win a special lunch. Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete this important survey! [Read more…]

Dear Colfax Families,

Thank you to everyone who came out to our fundraiser at Chuck E. Cheese! We appreciate your support in raising money for Reading Partners next year!

We began CMAS PARCC testing this week (Reading/Writing) and will begin Math next week (April 12-15). We are so proud of all of our 3rd-5th grade students who are working hard and showing perseverance on these assessments! To celebrate our students for their hard work, please join us tomorrow, on Friday, April 16th and on Friday, April 23rd at 2:55 p.m. for our Tiger Tunnel! Because our intermediate teachers have planned the special treat of eating breakfast with their students on testing mornings, students are already in their classrooms, focused and ready to begin testing first thing. Please join us on these three Fridays for Tiger Tunnels to celebrate their hard work! [Read more…]
