 Lovelines and Yearbooks

Want to create a special dedication for your child in the yearbook?  Is your child culminating this year?  Maybe your child is just starting Colfax?  Does your class want to thank your amazing teacher?  Purchasing a LOVE LINE is a great way to celebrate your child in the yearbook!

The deadline is February 16 to purchase your love line dedication.  This is a DROP DEAD date given to us by our yearbook company. After the 16th, we are not able to accept any more love lines. You can use this link for the dedication and to purchase the yearbook as well.

If you want to purchase a Loveline dedication click on "Yearbook recognition ad" to create your own. It's really as simple as dragging and dropping pictures into a template. Or you can create your own in a program like Photoshop and upload them to the site as well.

Prices:  

Full Page: $100; Half Page: $50; Quarter Page: $25

Yearbook: $30

If you have any questions, please contact our yearbook chair, Nickie at nickiemouse333@yahoo.com

Theme Parties

Our "Colfax Families Only" theme parties are a fun way to build community while raising money for the school.  Hosts donate EVERYTHING that goes into the party.  Tickets can only be purchased through our Party Book and all the proceeds goes straight back to the classrooms. Themes are endless - fitness/sports related (Think Amazing Race); ladies spa night, activities for kids, food experiences or even lessons - the sky's the limit!  So if you have a skill or passion or just love to throw a great party, perhaps you will consider hosting one!  Email ericalong@mac.com with your ideas. 

There are still some tickets available for a few of our FABULOUS parties like the Lunar New Year Cooking Party.
