Dear Families of Colfax Elementary, Please enjoy reading our District Newsletter by going to https://5il.co/1rzcs with more information on exciting events that have occured over the past months and about some new faces that have joined our amazing educational team! My heart goes out to the families that lost children and loved ones in the recent school shooting in Tennessee. I am sure this tragedy weighs heavy on your hearts as well.

Easter engineering in after school care this week. The kids were challenged to build a house for a marshmallow bunny. The bunny had to fit inside without getting squished, so careful measuring was needed. Unfortunately for the bunnies, soon after they were photographed in their homes, they got eaten. 😂
