"Nature is a tool to get children to experience not just the wider world, but themselves." It was windy and cold on Tuesday afternoon so the kids at after school care worked together to build an amazing storm shelter out of branches and pine needles. Sometimes what the kids come up with on their own is way better than what adults could ever plan!
Join us this Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at Colfax Elementary for a Parent Information Night for all incoming preschool, TK, and kindergarten students. Come tour the classrooms and learn about how Colfax EL builds a strong educational foundation through hands-on learning, positive relationships, and confidence building.
