News & Announcements


The Gifted & Talented program information meeting is rescheduled for 7 pm Tuesday, March 3 at Horace Mann Elementary School.  This meeting will follow the same agenda as the February 26 meeting.  The purpose of the meeting is to share the GT committee's progress to date with the audience and to gather ideas about the strengths and needs of Lakewood's gifted programming.  These thoughts will help inform the committee of any concerns that may not have been addressed to date.  

This is not a meeting regarding final programming decisions.

Horace Mann Elementary School is located at 1215 West Clifton.  Parking is available from Webb Avenue.  All are welcome.

PTSA Angelo's Fundraiser

The Garfield PTSA is hosting an Angelo's Pizza fundraiser on Thursday,  March 19th.  20% of your dine-in, carry-out, or delvery bill will be donated to the Garfield PTSA.  Simply bring in or mention the flyer at the time of ordering to help out our PTSA and our students.


For those 8th grade parents who may have missed the presentation at LHS on Feb. 17 about the scheduling process and new graduation requirements at the high school, you can view the presentation here.


It’s not often that viewers get much input on what to include in one of their favorite shows. But for a class of Garfield Middle School sixth-grade students, that’s exactly what they were asked for when representatives from the long-running program NewsDepth came for a visit last week.

Car Drop Off Lane Safety

Inclement Weather Safety

            Winter weather is now upon us which brings about situations where safety is a concern.   During bad weather there is an increase in students being driven to school.  Please pay careful attention to students crossing the street and drive slowly in and around the school.  When weather is bad students tend to hurry and don’t always exercise the same caution as they do in better weather.  Also be reminded to drop off students in the lane closest to the school.  The lane closest to Detroit is a drive through only lane.  Students should never be dropped off in the middle lane.  When students are dropped off in this lane they have to cross over a lane of traffic and is very dangerous.  Traffic moves very smoothly and quickly especially when we all are courteous and patient with each other.

            I would also like to remind students that throwing snowballs is strictly prohibited.  Although throwing snowballs may seem like a harmless childhood activity, in larger crowds it can become extremely dangerous.   Bystanders can get hit with a snowball causing injury or a student could run into traffic to avoid a snowball.  Please remind your children to refrain from snowball throwing to and from school.
