Thanksgiving Blessings Parents,
As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, I wanted to take this opportunity to celebrate a few of the many blessings we have experienced at Garfield Elementary this October.
First of all, our teachers have been working hard to ensure that students have small group differentiated instruction in all grade levels with at least one computer devices for every students. Third-fifth grade Gators are all 1:1 with Chromebooks. This is helping our students develop their skills in collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and creativity! Our fifth grade students have also been participating in lyricist lessons once a week and the entire school participated in a Maria Martinez assembly and will be creating age appropriate works of art to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month.
In addition, our Garfield PTA has been working diligently to provide all students with field trip opportunities and Meet the Masters Art Instruction. PTA volunteers have been selling healthy fruit bars on Wednesdays & Fridays. They also, organized our Fall Festival, which was an even greater success than last year! The PTA is currently working hard to prepare for our “Turkey Trot,” Jog-A-Thon, for our fall fundraiser, so even more field trips can occur throughout the year. Kindergarten scholars took walking journey to the Santa Ana Public Library, because of our kindergarten teachers and parents worked together.
