Garfield Elementary School has been selected as a recipient of a $20,000 Verizon Innovate Learning Award. This award program is part of Verizon’s commitment to the Obama administration’s ConnectED initiative to drive student achievement in STEM. Our school is one of 80 public schools across the country to receive a grant this year as part of Verizon’s investment to help provide teachers with the resources they need to use technology more innovatively to engage students in STEM education. As a result, students in grades 3, 4, and 5 will have an opportunity to participate in an engaging after school robotics program that will involve designing, building, and programming a Lego Mindstorm robot.

GES students contributed to Revere City Hall’s Tree Lighting Ceremony by decorating our school’s tree based on the work of glass artist Dale Chihuly combining it with a theme of recycling! Students in Ms. O’Connell’s art class, with the support of the encore teachers, created ornaments cutting and painting recycled water bottles. We are very proud of their work! In addition, students helped reinforce our mission to Go Green!
Check out over 100 photos from this year's vocabulary parade here in the gallery!
On Friday, October 31, Garfield Elementary School will hold its annual Vocabulary Day Parade. Families are invited to come and view this wonderful parade of words. Our Vocabulary Parade will start at 9:30 and end at approximately 10:00. Students will march out the front door and parade around the plaza in front of the school. We will start with our early childhood and kindergarten students, followed by our first graders, second graders, third graders, fourth graders, and finally culminating our parade with our fifth graders. Bring your camera!
Walk It Wednesday is a great way to start the day and interact with students and families outside of the classroom. We meet each Wednesday morning at Costa Park at 7:50 AM and walk to school together! International Walk to School Day is on October 8th. Please join in with families around the world to celebrate this day! This year participating students will once again receive a raffle ticket each week and be entered into a drawing in December to win some sports equipment to encourage an active, healthy lifestyle!
4:30-5:00 PM – Session with Principal in the auditorium
5:15-5:45 PM – Session I
6:00-6:30 PM – Session II
Please join us for Meet the Teacher Night at Garfield Elementary. This is a time for families to meet the faculty and learn more about procedures and expectations for our school. In addition to an introduction by administration in the auditorium, we have planned two informational teacher sessions in the event you have more than one child at our school. Each session will start on time so please be prompt. At this time, we do not have sufficient information to have meetings to discuss individual student progress. As the year progresses, you may request individual conferences by contacting your child’s teacher.
Please be sure to stop by in our lobby to learn about our partnership with the TD Bank Affinity program to help raise money for our school! More information will follow soon.
As always, remember to bring your photo ID to enter the building.
