We would like to welcome students and parents to a new school year at Colfax Elementary School. We are very excited to begin the new year. We hope you are too. This year will offer the students the experience of either a self-contained classroom or participating in a cooperative educational team. Fifth Grade will consist of a three-person team, Ms. Callaway, Mrs. Jones, and Ms. Parks will be one team and Ms. Perrell will be the self-contained classroom. We will work together throughout the year to plan activities and other learning experiences that involve our whole grade level.
Our goal is to help encourage each child to do his/her best, to be the best he/she can be, to become independent learners, and to attain the academic goals set forth by the North Carolina State Department of Education and Guilford County Schools. Fifth grade is very different from what you have experienced throughout elementary school thus far. All students must be prepared to work toward a successful and productive year.
