Principal's Message

  • Garfield Gators "Raise the Roof!"


     Summer Greetings Garfield Families, 
     The 2016-2017 school year was filled with many memories, experiences, and opportunities for Gators of all ages. It was comprised of adventures in learning form TK-5th grade,  from second grade trips to the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles, to fifth grade  journeys to the Sea and Sage Sanctuary .  

    At Garfield we are also committed to preparing our students for college and career readiness through STEAM and AVID. Our third-fifth grade Gators learned how to write their own lyrics through song writing lessons. Our Gators became 21st Century learners through Project Lead the Way.  Garfield teachers engaged their students in  engineering projects and project based learning.   All students were taught how to create masterpieces through the Meet the Masters art program.  Through our partnership with Playworks, our students experienced a full time recess and lunch coach who mentored junior coaches as well as coached after school athletics.

     Two of our 5th Gators, Axel Hernandez and David Escobedo were awarded as finalist in the National Day of History competition. They will be competing in Rocklin, California at the state level on May 6.   Garfield Gators definitely "Raised the Roof!"

    I would like to thank all of the Garfield families for supporting our students, teachers, and staff. Your support and teamwork has helped to enrich the education of our students! Enjoy your summer Gators and we will see you in the fall!

    Remember... Garfield Gators SWISH (Scholarly Worthy Innovative Successful Honorable)

    In sincere gratitude,
