The first part of the program will include general information provided by Garfield’s Associated Student Body (ASB), Class Representatives, College Advisor, and Counselors.

We will be holding a MANDATORY 9th Grade Orientation on Wednesday, August 12th from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. beginning in the Auditorium.  This orientation is for incoming 9th graders and their families.

A campus overview will be provided and important information regarding policies and procedures will be discussed. In addition, you will meet key school personnel and learn about the array of outstanding classes, programs, clubs, athletic teams, and many other extra-curricular activities that exist on our campus.

Thank you in advance for helping us ensure a smooth first day of school and we hope to see all our new Garfield families at the 9th Grade Orientation.
