The Garfield PTSA Mission Statement

To advocate and act for the health, education, and general well being of all students at Garfield High School and beyond.

Garfield High School features a diverse set of families, broad range of class offerings, sports and activities, and  students with talents of just about every kind. Garfield’s Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) engages parents, faculty, students and staff in a creative collaboration that adds to the Garfield experience in many ways. We are affiliated with the Seattle Council PTSA and Washington State PTA.

The PTSA has been Garfield’s most enduring school support organization. Besides being a source of volunteer energy, the PTSA provides more than $200,000 annually for school projects, staff and student support, and community-building activities. The PTSA also advocates  for appropriate levels of district and state funding for education.

Among the PTSA tools to help you navigate GHS are the eBark (weekly e-newsletter), our website, Facebook page and other e-mail updates. Watch for announcements of parent/caregivers get-togethers!
