Garfield Elementary is excited to be hosting a Summer learning opportunity called JUMP START for students entering grades 1-4 next fall. The goal of our program is to provide continued learning and practice opportunities for students who need extra support in the areas of reading or mathematics so their skills stay strong. We also hope to offer some new learning and technology/creativity activities that are engaging and allow students to integrate established skills to achieve success. All instructors for our program will be licensed teachers.

Breakfast and snacks will be provided to all participants. 
Transportation will not be provided.  (Participants need to be picked up promptly at the end of each session.)
If you have any questions, please contact us at 454-6450.

*REMINDERS for parents and students...*

1. Garfield and Harrison recently joined the ranks of the other elementaries in purchasing books for an online library. Go to the school homepage and click on the purple word (Capstone). This will bring you to a selection of quality books that read themselves to you. Virtually all of them are also AR books and even have the quiz#. 
2. Every child should practice keyboarding during the year. ABCYA.com has several learning activities for keyboarding. 

Above is the information on signing your child up for Garfield's very own STEM class. Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. I would love to see us fill up with the 24 slots available. Sign up soon!
Thanks, Mr. Tomonovich
