It is hard to believe this is the end of the 2017-2018 school year. Every one of our students has had an amazing year! New friends have been made, new things have been tried and new knowledge has been learned. On behalf of all of the teachers and staff, please know how proud we are of each and every single student at Colfax. I hope that all of our families have a restful fun summer. It is have been earned after all of the hard work the students put forth this year! The last day for Colfax students is Monday, June 4, 2018, this is a full school day. Report cards will be finalized and posted on the Parent Portal on Tuesday, June 5, 2018.
As information becomes available regarding the location for the grades 4, 5 and 6 students, notifications will be posted on the AVSD website as well as the mass communication system will be used to notify families of the updates. Furthermore, a letter will be mailed home with your child's specific information including transportation and homeroom assignment.
A sincere thank you to the Colfax staff, students and PTA for the overwhelming surprise birthday. I really don't know how you keep a whole school of students quiet! I truly appreciate the celebration and its was great way to end the school year.
