All parents are encouraged to attend our monthly meeting on the second Tuesday of every month, 2:45 p.m., in our new APT Room, located in a portable classroom in the lower campus area, Room 17. Children are welcome to play or do homework during the meeting.
It is our commitment to organize events which improve community relations and provide sociable entertainment and educational growth for children, parents, and teachers alike; while at the same time, continue to raise much needed funds for the benefit of all children at Colfax Elementary School now and in the future.
Events we sponsor
The Colfax Elementary School Association of Parents and Teachers regularly sponsors the following events and programs:
Family Movie Nights
Scholastic Book Fairs (Fall and Spring)
Winter Holiday Boutique
Spirit Wear sales
Open House BBQ
Teacher Appreciation Week
SCRIP (Substitute Cash Redeem In Person)
After School Activities
All of these events require the time and energy of volunteers. We appreciate the dedication of those parents who make our school a great place to be by offering their time to this group.
What is SCRIP? SCRIP stands for “Substitute Cash Redeem In Person.” Basically you as a customer purchase gift cards to many popular retailers where you spend money. We, "APT", receive a percentage back, which in turn helps us fund many of the events and programs listed above.
You can purchase SCRIP in front of the office before school between 7:30 - 8:00 AM Tues, Wed, Thurs and during Bulldog Blasts on Mondays.
