The Farm Club

Colfax Farm Club offers a unique learning experience with some special farm animals. Under the supervision of Ms. Leila Wells, and a few parent volunteers, students have the unique opportunity to learn about animals and nature while exploring and developing social skills.

Our farm began almost a decade ago with a few sheep, but has grown to include ducks, chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, and Charlotte Petunia the pig.

 

During Farm Club, students participate in cleaning and maintaining the farm, feeding the animals, holding and interacting with the animals, as well as enjoying a lesson relative to the farm, nature or animals. Experiences most elementary students would never get the opportunity to have. Inspiring curiosity and a love and compassion for animals that will hopefully last their entire lives.

 

Farm Club meets every Friday after school until 4 pm, for all grade levels. (Kindergarteners must be accompanied by an adult.)

If you are interested in having your child participate in this unique learning experience, please sign a permission form in the office or in the Science lab prior to your first visit to Farm Club.

 

Parent participation is vital, and we welcome volunteers. If you are interested, please speak with Ms. Leila in the Science Lab.
