CELEBRATING SUCCESS AT GARFIELD PUBLIC SCHOOLS!



CLICK HERE: 5.22.20 ATTENTION PARENTS FROM MR. RIGOGLIOSO- LOCKER CLEAN OUT MEMO. 



5.4.20 Hello this is Garfield Middle School Principal Richard Rigolioso to all Parents and Guardians

I am sure at this time we have all heard about the school closing for the year. I am almost positive no one is surprised by this.…This year has become a challenging time for everyone! You and your child have faced the biggest challenge ever by completing their education via remote learning. Now that the school year is coming to an end, students are now being told that there will be no graduation commencement! Rest assure this is NOT TRUE. GMS students have worked hard to get here, and the Garfield Middle School Administration/Advisors and Staff will make sure that their Virtual Graduation is history-in-the-making. As the principal of Garfield Middle School, the advisors and our virtual graduation team will assure your Garfield Middle School Virtual Graduation is unique and memorable.

We are also looking into personalizing GMS Graduation on June 18th… By scheduling a graduation parade through the town ending with a drive-in movie appeal that will be in an organized format that would meet social distancing requirements.

We will also create a graduation commencement that is ready to stream at our scheduled graduation date and time or whenever the families wish to watch.  Our students can experience graduation virtually and a personally touch with their family, friends & classmates. .

The Pomp and Circumstance will play... Speeches will be given, students will be recognized for their achievements, all students will have their names announced for the graduate recognition. We even offer families an option to have banners pictures and posters and shout-outs for recognition for your child, prior to our graduation ceremony. 
We are still working out details that will accommodate a 8th grade class of 330 students, but it will be …History-in-the-making.
