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. 


Attendance Awards

Congrats to our winners for the month of February--  For grades TK-2, Ms. McDonald's Class.  And for grades 3-5, Ms. Chester's class for the second month in a row!



We are officially halfway through the Read-A-Thon already!! If you haven’t yet, please get your sponsorships in! 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!! Visit https://501auctions.com/pace/custom/read-a-thon for more information, and forward the link to friends and family to help raise crucial funds for our beloved library.

All students will receive a cool book tag when they create an online account, so visit www.colfaxreads.com if you haven’t already. As always, the top readers of each grade and of the whole school will also receive recognition.

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!
