Tuesday E-Mail 5-22-18


Hello Garfield families and Happy Tuesday! Well, we’re almost done with another school year…only 7 more school days left after today! Because we’re so close to the end of the year, this e-mail will be short and sweet.


Running Club reminder! Tomorrow we’re having a special Running Club that is taking place at Mt. Mercy’s new track. Any student that wants to participate MUST HAVE THEIR PARENT PERMISSION FORM signed and turned in by tomorrow afternoon. This is a special permission slip that was sent home with each Running Club participant (it is white and a half sheet). We will dismiss all students from the Mt. Mercy facility, not Garfield. Dismissal will be at 5:15.


Garfield Elementary Night with the Kernels is Friday, May 25th at 6:35 pm. Tickets only cost $6.00 each!! This is a savings of $2.00 per ticket!! You can order online or through the Kernels’ ticket office until May 24th.

The 5th grade Fun Run is Friday, May 25th at Noelridge Park. Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for running/jogging/walking. Thank you.


Thank you to everyone that helped out at the Spring Carnival on Friday night and to all that attended. Also thank you to those that donated baked goods for the cake walk. We had an excellent turn out and so much fun! The kids sounded AWESOME at the concert…the whole event was a success! Can’t wait to do it again next year!


Congratulations to our very own Volunteer Coordinator Barb Hart for receiving the H.O. Maxey Humanitarian Award! Barb was recognized for going above and beyond what is expected of her and for her positive impact on our student’s lives. Barb, we love you! You’re the best!


We have no school next Monday, May 28th in honor of Memorial Day. School will resume on Tuesday, May 29th. Enjoy your 3 day weekend!!!


The last day of school is Friday, June 1st. It is an early dismissal day.


That’s all for now. Have a wonderful rest of the week.
