Tiger Tales Feb. 22nd

Dear Colfax Families,

This month, our students will have their routine screening tests for hearing, vision, height/weight, and a brief dental exam.  It is very important that your child participate, as we frequently identify a vision or hearing issue that can directly impact your child’s performance in school.  It isn’t only school life that is impacted, though if your child is unable to see the board, or hear instruction, he/she may feel challenged in other areas, as well.

Dear Colfax Families,

We have great news to share with you! Colfax Elementary has been rated  a  GREEN school on the 2017 SPF. The School Performance Framework, or SPF,  measures many important aspects of what we know makes a great school – such as how satisfied students and parents are, how much students have improved their scores on state tests from year to year, and how well the school serves and challenges all of its students. The SPF is like an annual report card for schools, letting us know where a school is making progress and where it needs to focus on improving. The school report card puts special emphasis on student academic growth, or how much progress students have made from one year to the next. [Read more…]

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!
