FIFTH GRADE OPEN HOUSE - MAY 4, 2017 - 6:30-8:00 P.M. Open House

You are cordially invited to attend an Open House at Garfield Middle School to learn more about the academic and extra-curricular activities that Garfield has to offer.  Students are encouraged to attend with their parents to get a first-hand look at our building and to start to get an understanding of what middle school life is really like.

The Open House will start with an informational presentation in our cafeteria followed by an opportunity to ask questions.   Members of our PTSA will be available to discuss how parents can be involved in their middle-schoolers life and some tips on what to expect out of middle school.   After the presentation, parents and students may take a self-guided tour of the building.  Student volunteers will also be available to answer questions and help you navigate the building. 

There will be an orientation meeting for incoming 6th graders and their families on August 15th.   At the orientation students will receive their schedules and more detailed information specific to their studies.
