Tiger Tales October 3rd

Dear Colfax Families,

Dear Colfax Families,

 

I hope you had a great labor day weekend with your child(ren)! I was able to enjoy time with my daughter, Katia. My husband and son had to work, so she and I decided to escape for a couple of days to the mountains. It was great hearing her stories and excitement for her new school, CEC Early College.

Dear Colfax Families,

 

I have been really enjoying to get to know students, parents and staff! My favorite part of the day is greeting and talking with students. They always have great questions and great things to share. Jackie, the assistant principal, and I have been going to classrooms to wish students a happy new school year. We have also taken advantage of this time to read them a story and have some great conversations!
