Dear James A. Garfield Families,
On Wednesday, March 11, 2020 we will celebrate something very dear to our community…our families. Our third “Family First Night” will be held in our community on this night. Throughout the school year our lives too often become extremely hectic, which sometimes causes us to sacrifice our family time in order to accomplish everything in our busy schedules.
We are a community of strong families and we all know that strong families make our community, schools and, most importantly, our students more successful. For this reason we want to set aside the time to honor our families. Please join us in celebrating your family by taking time to clear your schedules and spend an evening together as a family. We have instructed our staff to take advantage of this time and gather with their family as well.
To help, there will be no homework given on this evening, no projects or tests due the next day and our coaches will cancel practices, unless they are competing in State tournaments. There will be no evening activities at the school on March 11th. We also ask that our local youth organizations join us and cancel their activities on this evening.
Plan to eat dinner together, play a board game or take a walk as a family. Family is something to be treasured and celebrated. Take advantage of this evening and celebrate your family.
