Student Behavioral Expectations and StatementGarfield Gators are Respectful, Responsible, and Safe!The centerpieces of our school's positive learning environment are Garfield's Core Values: Respect, Responsibility, and Safety. These values are infused in our classroom discipline plans as well as in daily instruction, and every aspect of the school. Each year begins with Positive Behavior Assemblies that establish clear expectations and school rules that are aligned with Garfield's Behavioral Matrix. Students and their parents sign a Student-Parent Compact in which they agree to follow school guidelines that promote student and school success. Weekly raffles reinforce school values, and give students an opportunity to be rewarded for making great choices. Monthly, one student from every class is also honored for being a daily example of a scholar who models these values. Each trimester we hold award assemblies to recognize students making strong academic progress, showing outstanding citizenship and excellent attendance.
