Dear Families, I have enjoyed meeting each of you and getting to know your children. I want you to know that I value and love each of your children as my own.  The faculty and staff at Colfax Elementary want the best for every child. We are spending hours together planning new ways to motivate and reward students for making the right decisions, morally, socially and academically. We are very excited about our ideas to motivate students to grow in all three areas mentioned above, but we need your help! Please ask your children about their day and go over their work with them each night. Also, ask them about their AR goals and about the books they are reading. Students will have opportunities to earn AR points, and celebrate reading successes at the Tiger Cafe. But we want our students to know that reading isn't just about rewards and points , it's about learning, growing, and becoming empowered to do new things. We are doing great things at Colfax Elementary! Thank you for your continued support and the opportunity to educate your child. Please feel free to communicate with us anytime. We need your help and support as we help your child grow morally, socially and academically. Sincerely, Laurie Croom Principal
