Dear Garfield families,
As Annual Fund campaign letters land in mailboxes this week, I want to thank everyone in advance for considering making a gift to the fund. Your contributions enable Garfield’s PTSA to continue funding programs that help all our students succeed and sustain extracurricular opportunities and events that students have come to rely on.
Just a few examples of initiatives YOUR support sustains:
- Student achievement programs: AmeriCorps teacher aides, College & Career Center advising
- Classroom needs: art supplies and books for language arts
- Health, student wellness and social events: You help fund the athletic trainer, and events such as the 9th Grade Social and the Safe & Sober Grad Night.
- Small grants: to clubs, yearbook, and the student-driven Congress of Racial Equity (CORE)
Please send in your gift today (or donate online below). We are currently trending behind on fundraising compared to past years. No donation is too small, every dollar makes our school stronger. All of us – Garfield students, teachers, staff and fellow parents – thank YOU for your generous partnership and support.
Tracy Reed, 2019-20 Annual Fund Chair
