We Need You at the World Fair

THANK YOU to everyone who has already signed up for their three time slots for the fair. Right now we are covered for about 30% of the fair day, so we still have plenty of great spots open! 

This year, each grade level is responsible for specific attractions for the duration of the fair. Sign-ups are through My School Anywhere, so if you haven't already, now is a great time to login and participate. www.myschoolanywhere.com 

Will will also be sending paper forms home today in case that method is still easiest for you. On the paper forms, you will only sign up for the three time slots that you wish to work and will be assigned to an attraction based on need. Please note, the 20% discounted fair tickets will only be sold to Colfax families who have signed up for their three hours from Monday, May 14 through Wednesday, May 16. Please contact Jenna or Samantha with any questions.

Please click here to see our WISH LIST of items needed for the fair!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION - Parent Portal - WE NEED YOU!!!

We currently have 40% enrollment. Our goal is to have at least one parent signed up for the parent portal for each student by the end of the school year.  The Parent Portal contains useful information for parents about their children.  Next year, more information will be added to the Parent Portal as well!  You only need to sign up once in your child’s academic career with LAUSD, it will follow them to all LAUSD schools!

If you have questions or need assistance signing up, see the attached instructions or please contact the office.
