Colorful graphic saying "PTSA General Meeting"June 11’s PTSA meetings will be in person at the Garfield Library, and include a discussion about safety issues and a membership vote on the 2024-25 PTSA budget.

All are welcome.

UPDATE: We will also make a Zoom feed available, although online participation may be limited as people on site may not be able to see/hear the feed.

(Note: We respectfully ask that the news media respect that this meeting is for the Garfield community.)

Come at 6 pm for refreshments and a chance to speak with others, including PTSA Board members. There will be two consecutive meetings open to all in the Garfield community: the General Membership Meeting (at 6:30), and a Board Meeting (to start at about 8 pm). See agenda below.
