New Chromebooks

4th grade students are working hard on our new Chromebooks. Thank you for continuing to support PTA. Money raised last year was able to help purchase a new Chromebook cart as well as a new Chromebook for every classroom! 


Donut Party

Ms. Golinveaux's class enjoyed the delicious donuts they received for being the class with the most parents who joined PTA! Thanks to all the families that support our Garin PTA!

On Thursday, students were able to learn more about Dia de los Muertos. A big thank you to the parents on the ELAC committee, Mrs. Biggs, Ms. Norma and Mrs. Holm for putting together the display and teaching the art lesson. 


BMX Assembly

We kicked off Red Ribbon Week with an awesome BMX assembly! Thank you to PTA for providing the funding for these wonderful assemblies!
