Budget Survey for 2018-2019 

We can’t believe that it is already time to start thinking about the 2018 – 2019 school year!  Please take a few minutes to fill out our budget survey as our LSLC budget committee will be meeting in the upcoming weeks to analyze our current expenditures and plan for the next school year. 




The Read-A-Thon is HERE! This year, all money raised by the students will be MATCHED by PACE, and all funds will go towards purchasing books for a new section in the library and an exciting revamp of the library facilities!! In addition, the top readers of each grade and of the whole school will also receive recognition. We are so excited to have gone ELECTRONIC this year! Paper logs will still be available, but we encourage everyone to use the new Read-A-Thon website. Logging minutes and books will be so much easier! You should have or will soon receive all of the instructions and sponsor sheets in your child's backpack. Teachers will have copies of the paper logs, and additional forms are in the office.

To start registration on the Read-A-Thon website, please click: https://501auctions.com/pace/custom/read-a-thon 

Please contact Sarah Hsiao HuYoung at shsiaohuyoung@gmail.com or Jenna Schwartz at jennaeschwartz@gmail.com with any questions. Please encourage your child to read; research shows that children who read for just 20 minutes a day perform better in school! Happy Reading!

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.
