Dear Colfax Families,
Thank you for your continued support and help at Colfax! We appreciate all of your suggestions and feedback!
We had an incredible Trimester Awards assembly on Friday, January 13th. Thank you to all of the parents, families and friends who joined us for this special day. We are very proud of our students who earned the awards based upon their report card grades.
I want to provide everyone with an update on our “ACCESS” assessment that has been taking place. “ACCESS” is an annual assessment that assesses social and academic English language development in the areas of Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking. It is a state required assessment that meets the federal requirements for monitoring English Learners. All students in grades K-5 who have been identified as English learners are required to take the assessment. I am very happy to announce we have completed administering the Reading, Writing and Listening ACCESS assessment to students and we are now working on completing the make-up assessments. We have also started administering the Kindergarten ACCESS assessment. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher or the main office at 720-424-8740.
