PACE

Parents Association Colfax Elementary (PACE)

If you are a parent at Colfax Elementary, you are automatically a member of PACE!  This non-profit parent organization raises funds that directly benefit Colfax students.

 

Donations fund many of the programs that help make Colfax Charter an award winning school. 

 

MUSIC

Colfax has a comprehensive music program funded solely by PACE and provides Suzuki Violin instruction to all Kindergarten and 1st graders.  All 2nd -5th graders are given vocal instruction.

 

ART

Colfax has our very own kiln and PACE funds one fantastic Art Teacher – Shelley Klace.  As a 2008 winner of the Bravo Award for Arts education our art program is second to none.

 

SCIENCE AIDE

PACE built Colfax’s Science lab from the ground up providing science curriculum, a full time Science Aide (our fabulous Miss Leila), an established and ever growing vegetable garden and outdoor classroom.

 

COMPUTER LAB

PACE originally built the Computer Lab in 2002 and then shortly after introduced the MIND Institute’s Math & Music program.  In 2009 with PACE support the computer lab was completely remodeled with 34 brand new iMacs.  In the past 2 years, PACE has also funded computer carts or laptop carts for every grade level.

 

CLASSROOM AIDES

PACE funds all the classroom aides that work in various rooms assisting our teachers from everything to paper grading to class size reduction.
