Principal's Message


Garfield Gators Making It Happen in May!”

 

Greetings Parents,

April was sure filled with many memories, experiences, and opportunities for Gators of all ages. It was filled with SBAC testing for 3rd-5th grade Gators,  along with adventures in learning. Kinder Gators celebrated their Patriotic Parade with their parents.  Second grade Gators took a trip to the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles, while fifth grade Gators journeyed to the Sea and Sage Sanctuary. Third grade Gators learned how to write their own lyrics through song writing lessons from an actual lyricist. Second grade Gators performed for parents during the Spring Pageant.. Project Lead the Way teachers engaged their students in  engineering projects.  Third-fifth grade Gators participated in our annual Perimeter Run, in preparation for the Kids Run OC. Thank you parent volunteers who helped make it happen!  Amazing authors were also invited to our 5th Authors’ Hall of Fame of the Year, 4th & 5th Grade Gators competed in our annual Egg Drop Engineering Contest. 

Axel Hernandez and David Escobedo were awarded as finalist in the National Day of History competition. They will be competing in Rocklin, California at the state level on May 6.  PTA sold nachos to support field trips. Coach Mike led our Dodge Ball team during the Dodge Ball Jamboree at King Elementary.  Our Gators and their families “Rocked the House!”  All Gators learned about Leonardo Da Vinci during our Meet the Masters art assemblies. Students also created art pieces that reflected Da Vinci’s style.

We are also grateful for all of our families who visited Garfield during Open House. Our Gators have been working so hard this year and were so proud to show off their accomplishments. In addition, a special, “Thank you!” to our PTA for selling food and drinks before the special night.

I would like to thank all of the Garfield families for supporting our students, teachers, and staff. Your support and teamwork has helped to enrich the education of our students! As educators and parents, we must all hold our students accountable to the highest of expectations!
