The Ottawa High School is having a Food Drive and the elementary schools have been asked to help. Garfield has been invited to compete with Lincoln and Sunflower in a food drive. The winning school will have an assembly put on by the high school Renaissance committee.
Thanks to all of our families in advance.
**Attached you will find the flyers from the OHS Renaissance committee .
Reminder of Garfield Trunk or Treat, from 6-7 pm on the Garfield Blacktop. Park outside the gates, and walk into the blacktop area. We look forward to seeing you all there.
If you are interested in dressing up and handing out candy with other Garfield Families, we still have 3 open spaces to fill. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040d4badac22a6fd0-trunk
If you have pizza orders to pick up for the PTO fundraiser, tonight is the night!
These items have to be refrigerated and have to be picked up this evening, and we have many orders still here.
Please come by before 8 pm to pick them up this evening. The front doors are open, and all orders are in the GYM.
Please do not park on the crosswalks at the end of the day for pick up. Parking so close creates a safety hazard in that our crossing guards cannot always see around or get around the car when crossing children.
First - THANK YOU!!
Garfield Families, thank you for helping our students get into the pickup routine.
-Staying in your car
-Pulling up as far as possible - allowing our teachers and students to come to
