Garfield is a public elementary school located at the base of Coit Tower n- one of the most picturesque spots in the city of San Francisco. As one of the first public elementary schools in the city, Garfield has been providing a rich academic environment for local children for more than 100 years. Today, Garfield is a small, tight-knit community serving 240 children of diverse cultural and economic backgrounds in grades K-5.

Garfield Elementary offers general education classes for grades K-5; a Chinese Immersion program for grades K-1 (additional grades will be added every academic year through grade 5); a Special Day Class (SDC) program for children with high-functioning autism in grades K-5; and an after-school program from 1:50 – 6:00pm every school day. In addition to the music, art and P.E. programs that are offered throughout the district, Garfield partners with San Francisco community-based organizations to provide enrichment opportunities for its students. These partners include CUESA (the Center for Urban  Education about Sustainable Agriculture); the Chinatown Y.M.C.A; the San Francisco Opera Guild; LEAP Arts in Education; and more.

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 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
