SHARING YOUR HERITAGE THROUGH ART

In honor of Multicultural Day, your student will be working on SHARING YOUR CULTURE during art class in the coming weeks.  Family Members can help students gather ideas and materials to share where your family is from, what you love to celebrate, as well as traditional clothing and foods.  Please look over the questions, and list of items on the back of this handout to see what fun things your student can include on their culture wheel!

Dear Colfax Families,

I am happy to share that all of our teachers reported to work today. The Denver Public Schools and the Denver Classroom Teachers Association reached a tentative agreement which ended the teacher strike. We are very happy to have them back! Students, office personnel, paraprofessionals and school leaders welcomed them with lots of love, hugs, cheers and music as they walked into the building.  Our teachers are seasoned professionals and picked up right where they left off. Learning and love were seen all day. [Read more…]

Hello Colfax Family!

I am extremely excited for our coming up Dance unit. In all grade levels we will be participating in a fun and energetic Drumming Fit Beats unit. In this unit each student will receive a fit ball, a basket and a pair of drum sticks. Throughout this unit students will learn drumming routines while increasing their whole body fitness through dance. Students will learn to keep rhythm, count, and create their own routines.

Love,

Mr. Cole Hydrick
