Dear Garden Park Students and Families:

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at Garden Park Elementary!

Here at Garden Park we are excited about this new school year and are looking forward to accomplishing the vision of our school, which is to be a safe place where our caring and encouraging spirit results in high academic achievement for all students.  We embark on this new school year with great expectations for student achievement as we continue to focus on developing the whole child, both the academic skills and personal skills needed, in order to prepare them for lifelong success. With a school-wide focus on scholarly habits, a college-going culture, and having a growth mindset, students are encouraged to put forth their very best effort and to practice the scholarly habits that ultimately motivate and lead them to experience success each and every day.

I invite all members of our community to participate in our school programs.  Our parents (and grandparents) are welcome on campus, whether it is working with the parent leadership groups, volunteering in classrooms, or helping out at special events.  Your efforts make a difference every day for so many of our Garden Park students.  Together we sustain our excellent educational program, and continue to build a strong community partnership.

It is my hope that when you visit our school, you feel the strong sense of community and family pride.  Our school  in partnership with our amazing PTA and various parent groups provide many events that strengthen and enrich our home & school community.  There will be many activities that include families, and I want to encourage you to participate in as many of these activities as you possibly can.   Please refer to our school website and the various PTA flyers that are sent home with your child in order to be kept informed of these opportunities.

I look forward to working together this year as partners in learning.   I’m proud to be here at Garden Park, home of the Geckos, “Where learning sticks”.
