It is that time of year for the Pennsylvania School System Assessment (PSSA) tests. Fourth grade students will take the PSSA Science test on April 24 ad 25. The tests will be administered at the commencement of the school day. Therefore, please ensure your child arrives to school on time, no later than 8:20 a.m. In accordance with the state's heightened security measures, students will not be allowed to bring any personal electronic devices (cell phone, iPod, tablet, laptop, smart watch, Fitbit, or any other devices that can send or receive messages) into the testing room; thus, personal electronic devices should be left at home or secured with the classroom teacher. Thank you for supporting our school during the PSSA testing, since these tests are a direct reflection on Colfax Upper Elementary School and our school's Future Ready Index for next fall.
All student Progress Reports and Report Cards are posted on the Parent Portal, if you need assistance with your login information, please contact
724-274-8100. If you require a paper copy of your child's report card, please contact the Colfax Main Office at 724-274-7200.
