Hello Garfield families, Happy Rainy Tuesday. Will it ever feel like Summer for more than a day?! Let’s all think warm and sunny thoughts together and maybe we can turn this all around.



Thank you to everyone that attended the Garfield Carnival and Concert on Friday night, it was so much fun and a great success! And, a very special Thank You to all that volunteered to help in any way! Without our volunteers, these fun events wouldn’t be possible!


Bagels and Books is coming up! We would like for you to join your kiddos for breakfast on Friday, May 31st, from 8:20 – 8:50 a.m.

Come enjoy a bagel and get a free book from the Garfield Title 1 program.  Also, if you’re able to stay, we invite you to attend our End of the Year Assembly and Awards which will follow breakfast at 9:10am.

A flyer with all the information and an RSVP slip was sent home with your child. Please return the RSVP by May 22nd if you are coming. Hope you can make it!


Wildcat Day, Garfield’s outdoor end of the year celebration, is taking place on Tuesday, June 4th from 1:30 – 3:00pm. If you would like to Volunteer to help with games, please contact Barb Hart at bhart@cr.k12.ia.us.


Popcorn Day is this Friday, January 14th! Popcorn costs .50cents per bag and you may purchase up to 4 bags. Popcorn is not eaten at school, it is sent home with the students at the end of the day to enjoy at home. It's the perfect addition to a Friday Night Movie Night!!


Don’t forget, we have gone back to our Friday Early Dismissal Schedule for the rest of the year. This means on Friday school is over at 2:20. Please make sure you are here to pick up your child at 2:20 if they are a car rider. Thank you!


Lastly, there is NO SCHOOL MONDAY, MAY 27TH in celebration of Memorial Day! We will see you back at school on Tuesday, May 28th. Enjoy your 3 day weekend with family and friends!


That's all for now. Have a great week!
