Happy Friday! We had a fun-filled celebration Bulldog Blast today that led into our 2023 Spelling Bee! Our Queen Bee"keepers" Ms. Hicks and Mrs. Tabatt hosted our spellers in the gym in a traditional style Spelling Bee. The top two 4th -8th grade class winners will proceed to the PCOE Spelling Bee! We are so proud of all our Bulldogs who participated.

Colfax Elementary Builder's Club took Valentine cards and treats to Vets today at the Colfax Memorial Hall to say Thank You for their service. Our new club advisor, Ms. Jimenez, says it was great to reach out to others and learn more about our community. This month's Bulldog Value is Kindness, and our Builder's Club really took that to heart. Thank you! <3

“Nothing great comes without a risk”. After School Care added a little adventure to their outside time last week simply by adding a knotted rope. The kids enjoyed multiple rounds of tug-o-war and then proceeded to mountain climb up the slide using teamwork and a lot of muscle. I’m happy to report there where no injuries but there were a lot of really tired and happy kids.
