Welcome to our school!
Garfield Elementary is an amazing school where teachers, staff, and parents work together to ensure success for all of our students. We provide reading instruction in both whole group and small group settings every morning for two hours, as well as whole group and small group math lessons for ninety minutes each afternoon. Our reading lessons are based on the Literacy First Process which has been adopted by the district. Using Literacy First data, we are able to provide reading instruction that is specifically designed for each student's reading ability. During math, students explore math using manipulatives and problem solving through the use of CGI, congitively guided instruction. Through out the week at Garfield, our students also have the opportunity to participate in physical education, music, computer class, and library.
The goal of Garfield Elementary is to provide a positive learning environment for our students that will encourage them to reach their highest potential in the classroom and in our community.
