Men Bring Your Child to School Day
Monday May 6th was “Men Bring Your Child to School Day” at Garfield School. Men from the Maywood community, many fathers, uncles, grandfathers, and mentors to Garfield Scholars as well as local firefighters, police, and community leaders, gathered on the blacktop to support and encourage our young scholars as they began their school day. The event is sponsored yearly by the Garfield PTO, led by our Garfield Parent Liason, Coach Vernel Brown, and aniticipated with excitement by the children who attend Garfield School as they receive cheers and high fives on their way into the building. The event has become a tradition and a meaningful way to invite men of the community to make a positive and lasting impact on the lives of our young scholars.
