  • Strive for 5!

    Garfield Families: Join the Quad Cities Community as we “Strive For Less Than 5 Days Absent” for the 2018-2019 school year!  Schools throughout the area are taking part in this initiative to help keep student absenteeism at a minimum.  

    Thursday, September 13th has been designated as a challenge day for every school to strive for 100% attendance!  

    Here are 5 tips to help your children “strive for less than 5 days absent” this school year:

    1. Set a regular bedtime.
    2. Prep clothes & backpacks the night before.
    3. Only keep children home if they are truly sick.
    4. Have a back-up plan for getting to school.
    5. Avoid scheduling doctor’s appointments & trips during school hours. 

    This Thursday, Garfield Staff will be greeting our students with a “High 5” as they arrive to school.  The “High 5” gesture is symbolic to “Striving For Less Than 5 Days Absent this school year.”
