Tiger Tales Sept. 20th


With Mr. Hydrick

In the month of September Colfax students are finishing up learning some routines and structure. For the rest of the year students will do yoga on Monday for Mindful Monday. Yoga is a new way to exercise for most students and focuses on stretching and breathing.

I would love for any and parents to come check out what we are doing during Mindful Monday.

Tuesday through Friday we will doing a PE activity and learning a new dance every week. Tuesday the 18th was our first official dance day!


Mr. Hydrick

Important Message From DPS

Families will now receive emergency texts from the district. The communications team will also send emergency robo-calls. Messages will be sent during crises such as lockdowns, evacuations and weather delays/closures. We are excited about this change because sending text messages will inform families of crises in a much shorter time frame than what it takes for a robo-call or robo-email to be delivered.

Parents and guardians, you have been automatically opted-in to receive emergency texts based on cell phone numbers provided during registration. Please check to make sure your information is up-to-date in Parent Portal. Messages will be sent in English and Spanish.
