We are coming up on the halfway point of 1st Quarter already! Last week 4th and 5th graders started participating in Intramurals and Chorus. We’ve had our first skating party, Garden Club meeting, PTA meeting and Fire Drill!
Next week on Monday our Chess Club starts and on Friday the Scarecrow Scramble and PTA Fall Festival will be held. The Scarecrow Scramble is a fun run organized by Mrs. Schultz. It begins at 3:45 pm with a 1/4 mile run for Kindergarten and 1st grade followed by 1/2 mile for 2nd and 3rd graders and finally a 1 mile run for 4th and 5th. The Fall Festival is at 4:00-6:30 pm with free games, bounce house and face painting. Pictures are available for $1.00 and a meal deal for $5. Following the Festival will be an outdoor movie. Come for all three events or any one of them and meet other Garfield families.
