Ms. Ford's Kindergarten students using their tablets for learning.

The first week of school is in the books!  Students at Garfield were busy.  There was a PBIS assembly and a few PBIS skits throughout the week to remind students how to be respectful, responsible and safe students at all times.  

District 91 also introduced its new breakfast and lunch program this week, Gourmet Gorilla.  Lunches are served to students buffet style.  The menu includes healthier, organic choices.  After the first week, the new lunches are getting a thumbs up from the students at Garfield!

The technology department has rolled out the 1:1 initiative in the primary buildings this year.  All of the students in Kindergarten-2nd grade will now have either a tablet or chromebook to use in their classroom this year to enhance their learning.  

These are just a few of the many great things going on at Garfield!  We’re looking forward to a great year!
