Tiger Tales June 2

Dear Colfax Families,

I want to make sure that you know that we will be serving breakfast and lunch this summer at Colfax. Meals will begin on June 13th and end July 15th. Breakfast will be served from 7:15–8:00 a.m. and lunch will be served from 10:45-12:00 p.m. There will be pizza every Wednesday and slushies every Friday so stop by!

Summer Academy will also begin on June 13th. Classes begin at 7:45 and go until noon each day. Please ask in the Main Office if you have any questions.

There are still some spots open for our free Summer Camp, which will run from June 13th through August 5th from 8:00 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. There are lots of fun activities planned, including rock climbing, Legos, a visit from some birds of prey, trips to the Denver Zoo, Cave of the Winds, Dart Wars, and Dinosaur Ridge. Plus, there will be theme days like Chef for a Day and Water Day. Sign up today!

It has been such a pleasure and honor to serve you and your students for the past two years. We have had some tremendous celebrations together and I can’t wait to see what Colfax achieves next! It was such a difficult decision to leave but I am confident that the great work will continue!

Fifth grade families, we will see you at 5:30 this evening for Fifth Grade Continuation!

Best regards,

Elle Conger, Principal
