Tiger Tales September 3

Dear Colfax Families,

I can’t believe that we are already in our second week of school. Our teachers and students are working so hard – I can’t wait to see how much our students grow this school year!

I want to share two exciting upcoming events with you:

On Friday, September 11th at 3:30 at Sloan’s Lake Park, the Colfax staff will challenge the 5th grade to a great game of flag football to open the NFL Season. Go Broncos!  Also, as a reminder,

Tiger Tales June 6th

Dear Families,

I want to wish you a WONDERFUL summer with your student! I hope you have a chance to enjoy the great Colorado summer weather and spend time together as a family.

The summer is also an important time to make sure that your student doesn’t lose all the great learning gained in this school year. Here are some ideas to make sure your child stays active this summer!

Tiger Tales May 14th

Dear Families,

Thank you to everyone who attended our Family Math Night last Thursday. Families left with some great activities that they can use at home!

Our last collection for Box Tops will end on May 22nd. Please send in all Box Tops to your child’s teacher by this deadline. This program supports our Limo Lunch, in which fourth and fifth graders who demonstrated proficiency or high growth on the state tests enjoy a limo ride and lunch at Country Buffet.

As we prepare for the 2015-2016 school year I want to remind you of some important information:

  • School hours will be from 8:10-3:00.
  • The student dress code will be a Colfax polo or hoodie. Plain red polos will not be allowed.

To help with the dress code transition, we will be offering trade in deals from now through June 5th. You can trade in your red tiger polos for $5 and receive a brand new Colfax polo (color of your choice). You can also trade in plain red polos for $6 and receive a brand new Colfax polo (color of your choice). Stock up on uniforms for next year!

Information on Field Day  will be coming in the next Tiger Tales. ECE and Kindergarten will have their Field Day on June 1st and 1st-5th graders will be on June 2nd.

Best regards, Elle Conger, Principal

Tiger Tales May 7th

Dear Families,

Thank you to everyone who came out to the first Colfax Carnival! We had a great time (I got soaked in the dunk tank!) and raised $600 to bring Reading Partners to Colfax next year. This will provide one-on-one reading tutoring to students reading below grade level during the school day. We are accepting donations so if you are able to donate $5 or $10 please stop by the main office. Every little bit counts!
