Principal's Message

August 15, 2018

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome back to the 2018-2019 school year.  I hope you had a restful summer.  I would like to thank all of you who brought your children in for intervention classes and testing.  Your cooperation is much appreciated.  With your help we were able to test almost 100% of the students scheduled for testing.

School begins on Monday, August 20th, 2018.  Our school schedule will remain the same 8:10 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.  Please ensure that your child arrives on time and is in line by the first bell at 8:10 a.m.  Also, please discuss with our child where you will be picking him/her up after school.  I must remind you that we operate on a closed campus. Therefore, it is very important that you communicate clearly with your child to arrange for pick up at the end of the school day.

As you know, Garfield’s teachers and staff work endlessly to provide you with an exceptional education.  We believe that by working together we can provide our students with the curriculum and positive educational experiences needed to be successful in years to come.  We as a family pledge our support and dedication to meeting all of our students’ needs.  Working together, we can and will have a successful school year!  I look forward to this school year and the opportunity to work together with you.

Please plan on attending our Back to School Nigh on Wednesday, September5th, 2018.  Thank you for your support as we invest our time, talent, and interest in our nation’s most precious asset, our students, for they are the future.
