Alice @ Wonderland

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported the Garrettford Play. The kids worked very hard to put on a good show and they did an excellent job. Big thank you to Ms. Stritzinger for taking the time and helping teach the kids how to shine. 

Lost and Found

Please have your children check the lost and found for any missing jackets, hats, gloves and lunch boxes. There is a lot of stuff that the children have lost on school grounds. Please put your child’s name on everything so that it may be returned to them when it is found.


It's not too late to reserve your copy of the 2016-17 Garrettford Yearbook.  Order online at ybpay.lifetouch.com using Yearbook ID Code: 11679717 until April 23rd.  Our full color, 64 page Yearbook features a photo of every student and captures the memories of the school year.  Don't miss out!

Volunteers Needed

Mrs. Calvanese needs parent volunteers to help remove framed artwork from the hallways of Garrettford.  Volunteers can come in anytime after spring break between 8am and 4pm.  If you've only got 10 minutes, or an hour, any amount of help is appreciated.  Just show up!

Calling All Vendors! 

Garrettford's annual Spring Fair is scheduled for Saturday, May 13, 2017 from 12:00PM to 4:00PM  If you are interested in being a vendor or know someone who is interested in being a vendor at the Fair, please visit:http://www.garrettfordhands.org/events/spring-fair/vendors .Spaces are available on a first come, first served basis as applications and payment are received. Spaces are $25.00 and we ask that each vendor donate an item for our raffle table the day of the event. All vendors will need to bring their own set up materials including tables and chairs. We will be in touch with all vendors chosen on or before 4/28 with final details. Your support benefits the Garrettford Home and School Association and is greatly appreciated!

From the Teachers

With it getting warmer outside and families spending more time outside enjoying the beautiful weather, don’t forget that school is still in full swing. Please make sure your child does all homework and studying spelling and/or sight words. Don’t forget to read everyday. This can be a great way to help them wind down at the end of the day. Also make sure they continue to get a full night's rest. We know that can be hard with it staying light out later and with spring sports. The teachers thank you in advance for your continued  support.

Looking Ahead:

4/24-4/26 PSSA Math tests Grade 3-5

4/25 UDSD School Board Committee Meeting @ 6:30pm

5/1-5/2 PSSA Science Testing Grade 4

5/13 Spring Fair

Have a great week!
