Hello Mighty Dragon Parents!
We are getting ready to close out our Dragonfest 2019 reporting. For this year's event we had some auction items that did not receive any bids. A complete list of these items is listed here. This is a chance for those who missed Dragonfest to support our school by buying one of these items. For those who were there but did not get a chance to see everything a second chance for you to support our school. I know these were just missed by you because you had so many fabulous items to choose from! This was the most we have had at our event. You now have a second chance to own a piece of Dragonfest auction history.
We are going to have a "Fire Sale" running from May 8 through May 15th. This is on a "First Come, First Serve" basis. We are hoping to sell these items for at least 50% of value, but no offer will be refused. However, we DO NOT discount teacher and parent activities because we already have students who have paid full price to attend these activities. Also, you can still donate to our Fund-A-Need for our outdoor furniture at our renovated school.
To make this as easy as possible for you and us, I am going to be the one person you will contact to make your offer and to pick up your item. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or at415-828-4267. You can also just see me at school and ask me about any item you are interested in buying. If possible, payment to me will need to be cash or check. If you would prefer to use a credit card payment, we will need your email address to send you an online payment link. I will be in Room 205 so that you can buy and pickup your favorite Fire Sale item! READY? START SHOPPING!!!
Thank you for all your support! John A Richards, PTO President
Dear Garfield families,
You and the students are invited to the Kindergarten to College assembly in the school auditorium next Monday, January 14th to learn more about the Kindergarten to College Savings Program provided by the City of San Francisco in partnership with the San Francisco Unified School District.
There will be a chance for you and the students to make a deposit in the students’ accounts. The deposit can be as little as $1.00! You can send money ahead of time or bring it that day. The Kindergarten to second grade assembly will start at 8:15 am and the third to fifth grade assembly at 9 am.
We need 2 more families to sign up for Good Eggs and make their first purchase by midnight for us to qualify for the $500 bonus! Please sign up if you have or spread the word! Thanks!
You need to use our code: mightydragons
Students will be dismissed at 12:50 pm!!!
There is a Halloween event Sunday, October 28th at Joe DiMaggio Park from 2 to 5 PM. This is the 11th annual Halloween Extravaganza.
Although the Newsletter this week said Garfield will be having a tent at this event, we have had to cancel because we could not get enough volunteers to prepare for the event, set up at the event, and hand out goodies to all the ghost, princesses, and all the other little special guests.
However, this is a great event and you should bring your little Trick or Treaters for a great time on Sunday!
If 5 new families join the Garfield Elementary School fundraiser this week,
Good Eggs will host brunch for our teachers!
