All families are welcome to join us for our first Garfield's Families Connect meeting on Friday, October 2, at 8:30 a.m.
The first meeting will be a meet and greet with the new principal, Mr. Coutts, and our two new School Adjustment Counselors, Ms DeFilippo and Ms. Randazzo, as well as an opportunity to connect with other families who have children attending the Garfield Elementary School. We want to hear from parents and families about how we can best serve you, your children, and your family. We will use the information and ideas gathered from this first meeting to determine what topics will be covered throughout the school year, and to work to bring in new resources for our families.
These meetings will be facilitated by our School Adjustment Counselors, Ms. DeFilippo and Ms. Randazzo.
Garfield's Families Connect workshops will be held on the first Friday of every month from 8:30-9:30 a.m. in the music room. Spanish and Arabic interpreters will be available and light refreshments will be served.
The first meeting of the school year for the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) will be held on Tuesday, September 22. Parents are welcome to join us at either 8:30 am or 3:00 pm, to accommodate your busy schedules.
The PTO is an important way for parents to be involved in their child's school and to help influence what education will look like at the school. PTO meetings are also a great opportunity to connect with other families and to work closely with parents and teachers in a positive and productive manner.
We look forward to seeing you at one of the meeting times on Tuesday, Sept 22.
