Message From the Principal


Welcome to Garrettford Elementary School, “A Great Place To Grow” and a nationally recognized School of Excellence. I continue to be impressed by the true feelings of community at Garrettford. All segments of the school community and the community at large have demonstrated their willingness to do whatever is necessary to provide our children with a preeminent education. Our students are challenged by staff on a daily basis to think critically and to extend their learning beyond the confines of their classroom walls. We are committed to providing a caring environment where each child is nurtured and recognized for their individual abilities and traits.

Our staff is extraordinary, going above and beyond to meet the needs of each student. The Home and School Association is a dedicated organization which supports Garrettford in many ways. We value our connections to our parents and our community. Volunteers are welcome and provide assistance in helping our children learn and grow. Good citizenship and academic excellence are the cornerstones of Garrettford School. I look forward to working with our staff and students, our parents and our community in helping all children mature and achieve their maximum potential.

Please contact me at any time if I can be of assistance to you or your child. As educational partners working together, we can continue to build on the reputation of Garrettford School as a fine educational institution and a place where children prosper and achieve success.

Sincerely, Thomas P. Christensen
