Garfield Families

Our We Are Family!!  Garfield Families was implemented to ensure that every student at Garfield feels like they belong and they are important.  A “Family” is made up of one student from each grade level, and an adult mentor.  The adult might be a teacher, principal,  custodian, paraeducator,  or other support staff.  Students in a “Family” will stay together as they move up through the grades; each year the family replaces a graduating fifth grader with a new Kindergarten student.  


*Because we meet at lunch time, we ask that parents, grandparents and guests consult the Garfield calendar and refrain from visiting lunch on Family Fridays.
