Attention Middle School Parents... A letter has been sent home today with your student to inform you of our upcoming PBIS School Climate Survey the students will be asked to participate in during an upcoming G-Men Time activity. This survey gives us valuable information that our school staff uses to continually refine and improve our learning environments and school community. The survey is given out once each school year and a similar survey is provided to our staff as well as our parents. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the Middle School Office at 330-527-2151. In case your letter does not make it home a link to the information is below. Looking forward to everyone's honest and constructive feedback of how we are doing here at JAG. Go G-Men! https://5il.co/2f79k

The G-Men mascot of James A. Garfield Local Schools has a unique origin tied to the Alvin Karpis train robbery in Garrettsville. On November 7th, 1935, Karpis and his gang executed the last successful train robbery in American history. In the small town of Garrettsville, Ohio, Karpis ambushed a train carrying $45,650 intended to pay factory workers – an equivalent of over $1 million today. Following this daring heist, Government agents, known as the G-Men, pursued Karpis. The school adopted the G-Men nickname to honor these agents, symbolizing strength, a relentless pursuit of justice and a commitment to upholding the law. The black and gold colors of the G-Men now represent resilience and triumph over wrongdoing. This distinctive mascot has gained recognition as one of the most unique in the country. The symbolism goes beyond the local community, resonating with a broader audience as a testament to strength and the pursuit of justice in our country. In 2020, the newest rendition of the G-Men mascot was unveiled, adding another layer to its legacy. Local resident and JAG graduate Benjamin Coll ('05) took on the task of creating this modern representation. Coll's design captures the essence of the G-Men, combining local pride with a timeless symbol of courage and determination. Today, the G-Men stand not only as a powerful reminder of the community's history but also as a symbol of artistic talent and local innovation.
