A Message From The Principal:


Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

          We are approaching the last month of the school year and the momentum is picking up. All classrooms will be scheduling an End of Year Celebration. Please keep an eye out for additional information. The School District will be closed Monday, May 29th.

Below are a few one session day reminders.

Students will be dismissed at 12:05 PM on the following days:

  • June 6th
  • June 15th
  • June 16th
  • June 19th
  • June 20th
  • June 21st – This is the last day of school.

All students will be receiving a James A. Garfield Early Childhood Learning Center Yearbook. I hope everyone enjoys the yearbook for many years to come. Within the pages of the yearbook, you will see a glimpse of all the learning and special events that took place throughout the school year.

Thank you for your participation in various family events and informational sessions that we have hosted. I wish everyone a safe, happy, and relaxing summer.



Nicole Grillo, Ed. D.
