Tiger Tales April 6th

Parents and families,

P.E. update:
Mr. Barela returned to Colfax today, April 6th. We’re very excited to have Mr. Barela back at Colfax! We wish Mr. Brush the best at Barnum Elementary next school year!

PARCC/CMAS/CSLA incentives for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade:
We are so very proud of our students in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade who were on time and at school every day during testing before Spring Break. 87 out of 135 students were rewarded ice cream pops on Tuesday April 4th. We’ll continue celebrating students who are on time and present every day.

Morning meeting cancelled due to PARCC testing:
On Friday, April 7th and Friday, April 14th we will not be having our regular Friday morning meeting because half of our students will be taking PARCC/CMAS/CSLA. We look forward to having morning meeting on Friday, April 21st and celebrating the end of testing.
Photo retakes:
We know some students didn’t get a chance to take photos, so we’ll be having photo retakes on April 17th from 12:30-2:30. Please know that we don’t have change in the office, so please be sure to provide exact change. Picture forms will be sent home on April 13th.

We need your input! We’ll be sending home a survey to learn more about the Colfax community’s preference with breakfast options. We will send one survey with the oldest child in each family. Please return the survey to your child’s teacher by April 20th.
Perfect Attendance:
Congratulations to students who had perfect attendance during the month of March! These students did not miss one day of school, were not late and didn’t leave school early. We are very proud of the following students. They will be recognized at our school morning meeting on Friday, April 21st and they’ll be given a perfect attendance certificate. We hope we have more students during the month of April!
