Thank you for the warm welcome to Colfax Elementary School. It is a pleasure to serve this caring community. Our excellent staff is committed to make this school year a successful experience for every student. This website should answer many of your questions. Please check with your child’s teacher or give call us if you need further assistance.
In addition to the amazing staff, our programs, technology and facilities brought me to discover Colfax Elementary. In addition to teaching core academics, we offer amazing enrichment opportunities such as guitar, band, running club, visual art and even karate. We recently received a $20,000 grant entirely for student enrichment for our Discovery Club.
Our classrooms are equipped with state of the art SMART boards, sound systems and classrooms are spacious high vaulted and many have full kitchens. Our teachers integrate technology seamlessly into their instruction and students have access to Chromebooks throughout their day. Technology is important as a tool for learning, but teachers and students also have rich reading and hands on learning materials in classrooms. Our library is one you must see.
I recently met an architect in Sacramento that has designed and visits thousands of schools. She said that Colfax Elementary is one of the most beautiful campuses she has ever seen. With our green roofs, cedar siding and pine trees cascading the hill, our school is hands-down one of the most beautiful in the California.
I look forward to partnering with you to make this an exciting and successful year for our students. Thank you in advance for your support and commitment. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
