Principal's Weekly Message


Hello Colfax Vikings!

Monday is PTO Chick Fil A day at the Palladium location! We hope everyone will visit the drive through or curbside and let them know you are with Colfax.

Also, from the PTO, April 15th is the LAST day to purchase a yearbook, please see the ordering information in the email. If you need more information, you can call the front office.

The PTO is going to host a book fair in May, stay tuned for more information!

Finally, it is time to hold nominations for our 21-22 PTO executive board. A nomination form will be attached to the email, please consider a position on our executive board. It is a great way to get involved at Colfax!

Starting April 19th, we will have some changes to our morning arrival procedures.  In following updated CDC guidance, we will no longer require K-5 parents to complete the symptom attestation form or have temperature checks done. We are continuing our handwashing and cleaning protocols along with wearing masks all day on campus. Pre-K students are still required to complete the attestation form and have temperature checks done. Please continue to monitor your child’s health at home and keep them home if they are not well.  We are going to continue to be diligent in keeping our students and staff as safe as possible.

Wednesday, third quarter report cards will come home, so be sure to check those bookbags and emails.

Do you or someone you know have a rising kindergartner at home? Kindergarten registration opened April 1st, so please visit to register them for kindergarten. Also, Pre-k applications are due by April 16th, you can call the pre-k office at 336-370-2362 with any questions.

Remember that all information is shared via a phone call, an email, on Facebook and posted on the Colfax website on the Principal’s Weekly Message page. Please call the front office with any questions and have a great rest of the evening!
