Dear Garfield Community,
Welcome back! It is my honor to serve as principal of Garfield Middle School. As we embark on another adventure into academics, social emotional learning and all around fun, we pride ourselves on being in a building with a dynamic staff, dedicated to developing well-rounded students.
The Garfield experience allows for students to explore musical and artistic interests, literacy, mathematics, science, history, clubs of various content and empathetic human interactions. On August 29th, we will host our annual Open House and invite you to come see all we have to offer. Students will be able to sign up for clubs in mid September and we encourage everyone to participate in extracurricular activities.
This year we will amplify our Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports model while focusing on academic improvement of each child. Our Academic Support system is in place and students will continue to receive services to increase academic success. Each day will be a new opportunity to make progress on our goals and to embrace the learning processes we will explore daily.
We welcome the continued involvement of Garfield families and encourage parents, students and staff to join our PTSA. Your support and kindness is greatly appreciated.
A wonderful year is ahead and I look forward to continuing this journey with the Lakewood community.
