A Letter from Mrs. Friedman

Dear Colfax Family,

The last week of school is upon us.  Thank you for a wonderful 2017 - 2018 school year!  This year your children learned so much  From how to be a good friend, to solving complex algebra problems - they were engaged in problem solving across the disciplines all year long.  Thank you to all of our volunteers who helped support instruction and specialties at the school.  

I hope everyone has a wonderful summer.  See you back at school August 14th!


Mrs. Friedman
