popcorn friday donations
In previous years the PTA has sold bags of popcorn on Fridays for $.50. This year we decided to make popcorn available to all students regardless of ability to pay. We will have a donation jug available by the library where students can drop money on their way to lunch. We understand that some don't want to send their students with cash to school so we have made it easier to make a donation for popcorn Friday. This link lets you donate any amount even if it is $.50. These donations allow us to continue providing popcorn for all our students. Thank you for your support!

Playground equipment fundraiser!
Garfield Elementary is a hub for our neighborhood. In the past several years we have lost two large playground structures. The school district is providing funding, and our amazing community is pitching in as well. Every donation helps to restore our playground!

Donations are tax deductible. Please let us know if you need a receipt.
Also, if you are a grant writer or have any ideas for large scale fundraising, please don't hesitate to reach out to the PTA. You can email us at email@example.com.
Garfield Elementary Parent Teacher Association (PTA) welcomes you!
Our board meets monthly on the 2nd Monday of the month from 6:30-7:30 pm. We will hold four membership meetings this year on a day separate from the board meeting. Membership meetings will include PTA details as well as a presentation from Garfield staff or a community member. The Zoom link is the same every month. It can be found here, on our Facebook page and included in the school newsletter. The board and membership meetings are open to members and non-members. We hope you stop by!
2024-2024 Community Meetings
The PTA fundraises to support Garfield Elementary. Funds raised in previous years have supported the purchase and installation of the climbing wall in the gym, the purchase of audio-visual equipment, performing arts assemblies, books for the library collection, and supply funds for teachers. The main fundraisers this year will be the Cougar Mountain Cookie Dough sales this fall, and Dance-a-thon in the spring. We also raise funds through Amazon Smiles, Fred Meyer Rewards, and the Combined Fund Drive.
The PTA needs volunteers. Our best events happen when all our parents/guardians come together to volunteer. Members and non-members alike may volunteer in a way that works for them: daytime or evening, recurring or sporadically. Cheetahs appreciate their volunteers!
