Principal Garcia's Weekly Message

Good evening, Viking Families, 

In anticipation of potential power outages, I'm sharing this email sooner than usual, just in case. I hope you and your family stay safe and warm as we face winter weather over the next several days. This week marks our 20th week of school!

Please note two upcoming dates. Monday, January 17 is a holiday and school is closed. Tuesday, January 18 is a teacher workday. 
In your child is experiencing any of the symptoms listed in the StrongSchoolsNC Public Health Toolkit, please keep them at home. This new variant is highly contagious and our number one goal is to keep our students and staff safe. 
Colfax Elementary PTO is selling tickets for Chick Fil A for a year. Raffle tickets are $5 each OR 5 tickets for $20.00. Winners receive a digital offer card with 52 free meals that include:
  • Original Chick‑fil‑A® Chicken Sandwich or 8 count nuggets
  • Medium Waffle Potato Fries
  • A medium drink
The prize is worth over $300! You can purchase them on our website or you can purchase them directly from the PTO! The drawing will be held on Friday January 21, 2022. A flier with a QR code went home last week!
During morning arrival, if you arrive after the gate is closed for the car line, please park in the parking lot and walk your child to the building to sign your child in. 
Here is the breakfast and lunch menu for the week: 
Have a great evening!
