Principal Garcia's Weekly Message

Good evening, Viking Families,

Week 39 is here! Our ABC countdown continues with W on Tuesday, which is wear your PJs! Please be mindful of the type of PJs your child wears since it will be hot.
Our 5th grade promotion ceremony will take place at Colfax on Thursday, June 2nd at 9:00 a.m. Our Pre-K promotion ceremony will take place at Colfax on Friday, June 3rd at 10:00 a.m. 
As a reminder, all visitors and volunteers must enter Colfax through the front entrance by ringing the yellow doorbell, identifying yourself and stating your purpose. In addition, your driver's license must be scanned to receive a visitor's pass. 
Also, please remember to have your child wear their OneCard at ALL TIMES on our campus. Their card should be around their neck before they board the bus each morning or exit your car upon arrival to school. This is critical and we cannot ensure this happens without your support. 
Lost and found is overflowing, so if your child is missing an item, please encourage your child to look through lost and found. 
GCS is asking ALL families to fill out the free and reduced lunch form for the 2022-2023 school year before the current academic year ends. Even if you don't think you qualify, please fill one out just in case.
Please note that breakfast and lunch will not be free next year and that starts on the first day of school. In order to receive free or reduced lunch, you must complete a form and qualify. 
You can complete the form online or message your child's teacher for a paper form. You only need to do one form per family! 
You can find the form here:

It is critically important for parents/care givers to complete a Free or Reduced Lunch Application Qualified meal applications greatly assist the district in receiving federal funding for things like: 

  • Additional classroom teachers to ensure reduced class size
  • Academic facilitators and instructional coachers
  • Additional funding for instructional supplies and materials
  • Additional technology devices
  • Professional development for teachers
  • Educational software programs
Here is the breakfast and lunch menu for this week: 
Thank you so much for all of your support this school year. We truly appreciate you and your family being a part of our Colfax School Community! 

Have a great evening!
Principal Garcia
