9/12/17

An experiment in one of our labs set off the fire alarm this afternoon, 9/12/17. Students were evacuated for about 15 minutes until the fire department cleared the building to re-enter. That's the reason we did four fire drills in the first four weeks in preparation for unexpected events.

Extended Learning Opportunities through the ABC Community School Partnership begin September 11th. Information details will be found here this week. 

 

We are excited to be able to offer a variety of programming at Garfield after school.  Our extended learning opportunities include Art, Leadership, Sports, Civic Engagement, and Social settings.  It is important that we share some information that will help you and your student determine the right after school options to fit your family's needs.

 

  • All programs are voluntary for students.  Many programs are paid for with GRANT money which require students to sign in so we can track participation.  Students will check in and Activity Leaders will note participation at the beginning of the activity.
  • Please note that no one will call home if a student does not come to a program.  There is no mandatory attendance in the out of school time activities.  Attendance is encouraged for all participants in order to get the most out of each program.
  • Clubs do NOT have substitute leaders.  If a leader is absent, the club will be cancelled for the day.  An announcement will be made and students can attend an alternate club if one is available or can use the office phone to call home and make arrangements for pick-up.
  • Offerings are driven by participation and If participation falls below expectations, programs may be cancelled.  We will give two weeks notice to those in the club or group when this is being considered.  A notice will be posted on the Athletics and After School Activities page to let families know what is happening.
  • Students can leave at any point in the after school program and should let the Activity Leader know they are leaving.  Once they leave the campus for any reason, they cannot return to the club that evening.
  • Students are treated as young adult professionals in keeping with our standards as a STEM school.  Our expectation is that they will act accordingly.  
  • Students have 15 minutes to leave the campus when they are done for the day.  If they are NOT in a club, they should be off campus no later than 3:20.  If they are in a program, they should exit the premises no later than 15 minutes after their program lets out.  Students can not "hang out" on campus.  Students who refuse to sign in to a program will be referred to the counselor and families will be called.  We strive to maintain a safe and fun environment for everyone
  • Participation in each program is recorded separately.  If you wish to find out if your student is attending regularly, you can speak to the Activity Leader of the club or request a report from Pamela Campos, the Community School Coordinator.  

If you have any questions, please contact Pamela Campos at 344-1647 ext 54531 or pamela.campos@aps.edu

Principal bids farewell

Dear Garfield STEM community,

It is with great difficulty that I tell you that my time at Garfield STEM School has come to a close. I have accepted the opportunity to serve as Principal of Nex+Gen Academy High School for the 2017/2018 school year. This move is the right one for both personal and professional reasons.

I am very proud of our work at Garfield STEM School.  Four years ago Garfield faced declining enrollment and an uncertain future. Together, we developed a plan and transformed the culture of our school to better meet the needs of 21st century students.  I look forward to hearing about the academic, personal, and professional successes of our students in the years to come. 

These last 7 years have been the most rewarding of my life. I will miss Garfield’s busy halls, friendly faces and beautiful trees. I would like to thank you for all of your support, ideas, and dedication. It has been an honor and a privilege to serve as your neighbor, colleague, and principal. The memories will be with me always.  Let’s hope that our paths cross again soon.

Goodbye and good luck.

 

Sincerely,

 

David Lynch

Principal, Garfield STEM School
