FEBRUARY CHARACTER TRAIT.....COURAGE
Courage is “overcoming fear so I can do what is right.” 
Courage begins by knowing what is good, true, and right. This gives you confidence that you are heading in the right direction.

A MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Hello Garfield Families and Friends,

Hoping your new year is off to a fantastic start!  The month of January signifies the end of the first semester! Report cards will be available to view online starting Monday, January 28th. If you need help viewing the report card, please do not hesitate to contact the office. STAR reports will be sent home on Monday as well.  If you have any questions or concerns about the report card or STAR reports, please contact your child's teacher.  

I wanted to take a minute to thank all of those who have offered their time to volunteer. The kids are really enjoying it---so are the teachers! We have been able to give many kids a little extra attention.  We have been able to have some small lunch groups, reading groups, and some organized games at recess. If you are interested in volunteering, or know someone who works well with kids, please contact our office or fill out this  volunteer form .  All volunteers will need to do a background check. There is a link for this in our newsletter.  

Thank you for your continued support as we work together as we inspire, engage, and impact!
