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!

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.

Hello Colfax Community,

I hope you had a great labor day weekend with your child(ren)! I was able to enjoy time with my family at Cherry Creek reservoir. My most favorite part was just seeing my daughter’s enthusiasm as she shared about her classes and friends. The start of a school year has so many new experiences to offer. I also hope our students are coming home sharing things they are excited about at Colfax! [Read more…]

What are some of the important things our students and families need to know about attending Colfax Elementary School?

Arrival/Dismissal: Colfax doors unlock at 7:30 for breakfast.  Supervision for recess starts at 7:45. We will not have adults outside until then. If you are dropping your student off in front of our school, please be sure not to block the area that has cones in it. This area is reserved for our school bus to drop students off every morning. Please be sure you look at the parking signs along both sides of the street,  due to street sweeping April-November. For safety reasons, please do not park in the middle of the road and drop students off. Thank you! [Read more…]
