Welcome Garden Park students, families and community!
At Garden Park, we are committed to equipping all of our more than 250 students with the academic and personal skills for lifelong success. Our school has a long record of academic excellence and students consistently outperform the state average on rigorous state standardized testing. We are in our second year of AVID Elementary (Advancement Via Individual Determination), with a focus on Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading.
We offer a variety of school programs to help enhance the educational experience of our scholars, including:
We are grateful our PTA is very active on campus, and organize many popular events such as Skating Night, Angel's Night, Trunk-or-Treat, Winter Cookie Workshop, Movie Night, Sweetheart Dance, Walk-a-thon, and more. Every month, our PTA also holds the Family Dining Night, where students and families have dinner at local restaurants. Families explore the community and form emotional bonds by spending time together. PTA members also fund programs and materials, such as the Accelerated Reading program and the Art Masters program, homework planners, field trips, and more.
We are committed to celebrating our students' many accomplishments. Our Monthly Geckos Award Ceremony awards honors students for demonstrating our monthly scholarly habits. Each teacher nominates two scholars from each class to be awarded during the outdoor Friday assembly. We also have the Trimester Awards which our GECKOS awards, Special Recognition awards and Accelerated Reader awards.
Garden Park is a small school with a strong sense of community, with staff and parents working closely together with a focus on academic achievement.
Please feel free to stop by our office for any questions, comments or concerns. We are excited for a new school year with our scholars, families and community!
