On Monday, September 26, the MA Department of Elementary and Secondary Education announced that the Garfield Elementary School earned Level 1 status for the first time based on data over the past four school years. We also increased our overall performance relative to other schools in the same school type from the 30th percentile last year to the 41st percentile this year.
Congratulations to all of our teachers, staff, students, and partners for all of your hard work and dedication!
We held a celebratory rally for our entire school community on Tuesday, September 27.
At our October meeting we plan to introduce our school administration team, as well as our Math and English/Language Arts Coaches, and several English as a Second Language teachers. Resources will be available for parents to utilize with their students at home.
Spanish and Arabic interpreters will be available and light refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there!
Reminder: Adult family members must show identification when signing in. Please have a picture ID ready at the door.

We recently received great news that the Garfield Elementary School has won a grant award to build a new playground on the field next to the entrance of the school. We want to thank the funder, Kaboom, as well as Revere On the Move, and City Councillor Novoselsky for their commitment to our students and school community.
We need your help to decide what the playground will look like and what play structures it will include. Please join us at the Garfield School for our Design Day on Thursday, Aug 4,

In addition to the design day on Thursday, August 4, we will also need your help with fundraising activities and with the playground Build Day over the next few months.
