Garfield Family News!

November 15th, 2020

Good afternoon, Garfield Families,

Thank you for taking the time to complete our family survey that was included in our last newsletter. Based on your feedback, we have implemented a free before school and after school tutoring program for our students in addition to hosting family support sessions. More information about this opportunity is listed below.

We want to remind parents and students the importance of logging into Schoology and attending live sessions on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Garfield attendance rates have dropped the past few weeks and we need the help of our parents and guardians to make sure kids are logging into all classes each day. This includes not only English, Math, Science and Social Studies, but also PE, Library, Art and Music. Attendance is also taken on Wednesdays based on work completed. If you need any support or have any questions please email us at

Report cards for Quarter 1 will be mailed out starting on Tuesday. If you believe we may not have your correct address on file, please call the main office at 216-838-6300. Please remember, due to the rising cases in Covid-19, all visits to the main office will need to be scheduled in advance by calling our school directly.

We partnered with CSU to offer free, virtual tutoring for our students. Through this program, they provide an individualized tutoring and assessment service that pairs K-12 students with current CSU College of Education students. Students receive assistance with critical academic skills and social emotional learning in weekly one-hour remote learning sessions via Zoom. To sign-up for this service, please click here.

SPO (School & Parent Organization) @ Garfield

We had about 40 parents request to be part of this year's SPO. We'll have our first meeting on Tuesday, December 1st at 5pm. If you're interested in being the SPO President this year, please express your interest during this meeting. We'll send a Zoom invite along with a calendar reminder to those parents who have expressed interest. We're looking forward to our meeting!
