Dear Parents/Guardians of 5th grade students,
You are cordially invited to attend an Open House at Garfield Middle School on Thursday, May 5, 2016 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. 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-schooler’s 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 Thursday, August 18th at 12:00 p.m. and an evening session at 6:00 p.m. At the orientation students will receive their schedules and more detailed information specific to their studies.
