Welcome to Garfield Elementary


Garfield Elementary SchoolI am a Garfield Great. I treat others with respect. I am responsible and I reflect on my choices. I respect myself, others and school property. I am responsible for my learning and doing quality work. I reflect on my choices by self-evaluating.

The Garfield staff is known for their positive involvement in the school and their dedication to the success of all students. We are an active group of educators who are involved in the Garfield community as well as the Yakima community. We believe in building a positive atmosphere where students and staff interact together in an effort to provide a quality social and academic program for ALL students.

Healthy Youth Survey

Washington State 2016 Healthy Youth Survey

Our district is participating in the Washington State 2016 Healthy Youth Survey during the weeks of October 10th - 21st.

The Healthy Youth survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, risk and protective factors, access to school-based services, and sexual behaviors, abuse and orientation. Survey results are used by schools, communities and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks.

The Healthy Youth Survey is given to students in grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 across Washington State.

Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students' answers are anonymous.

Please read the Parent and Student Notification flyer for more information about the Healthy Youth Survey.
