Hello Garfield Families and Happy Tuesday!

Wow! How lucky are we to have this wonderful September weather! Thank goodness the rain stopped and the kids can go outside and play at recess. Since we are moving out of the hot summer months and into fall, please make sure that your kiddos are dressed appropriately for the weather. Many of the children are already wearing light weight sweatshirts in the morning and then they just leave them in their lockers when they go out for recess since it's warmed up. Hopefully it will be awhile before we have to worry about heavier clothes. (:


The PTA Fundraiser packets are due back this Friday, September 14th. Remember, the top selling student wins $75.00, second place wins $50.00 and third place wins $25.00. There are also individual prizes that can be won depending on how many items are sold. All the money raised will be used to help support classroom expenses, field trips, busing, etc. We appreciate your support!!!


The PTA meeting is tonight, Tuesday, September 11th from 6:30 – 7:30. The meeting will be held in the Garfield library and free childcare will be provided. We would love to have new members join us and share their fresh ideas! Hope to see you then!


Garfield Wendy’s Night is Wednesday, September 12th from 5 – 7:30 pm at the 42nd street location. Garfield will receive 10% of all sales including the sales made in the drive through.


Shoes That Fit - OnMedia and Mediacom are sponsoring Shoes That Fit for the CRCSD again this year.  If your child is in need of a pair of tennis shoes or snow boots, please complete the permission slip sent home with your student.  Extra forms may be requested from the main office.  Permission slips need to be returned to Laurie Moody, Garfield Counselor byThursday, September 20th. 


Cub Scouts Recruitment Night is Thursday, September 13th at 6:00pm at Kenwood Elementary School in the cafeteria. The Cub Scout recruiter was at Garfield today and spoke to all the students at lunch. A flyer will be sent home with the boys as a reminder of the date and time.

Have a great rest of the week!
