Welcome to Garfield Heights High School!
Welcome to Garfield Heights High School!

August 2017

Greetings Garfield Heights High School families!

I hope that your summer has been an enjoyable one. The 2017-2018 school year should be an exciting one at Garfield Heights High School, as we continue to strive to be the best we can. For the past few years, our staff has worked together to develop teacher-based teams, in which we focused on aligning our curriculum and developing common assessments. We will continue that work this year having professional conversations and taking students and our building to the next level.
The High School prides itself on the many activities, groups, and sports in which our students can participate. I encourage everyone to find something that they love and get involved. There is something for everyone! Our Key Club, a students of service organization, sponsors many different activities. We have an award-winning Academic Team, along with an Art Club and a Spanish Club. If it’s fine arts you are craving, our Drama Department put on a phenomenal production of Shrek last year. We also have a Music Department that includes Marching Band, Jazz Band, Concert Band, Music Express, and Concert and A’capella Choirs. Finally, if active participation is your thing, our sports teams are all very competitive. Last year, our boys’ basketball team made it into the Elite Eight. Find something you love and get involved.
You may notice a new addition to your student’s schedule called Advisory. We are adding an advisory period to our schedule this year that will be utilized at various times throughout the year. This time will be utilized to help students have a positive transition into the current school year with personal and academic goal setting and academic monitoring.
The dress code will be strictly enforced again this year. Here are a few reminders of our most difficult issues. Tops and bottoms must overlap at all times, including when arms are raised. There should be no midriffs showing. Length of shorts, skirts, and dresses must equal or exceed student’s fingertip length. Flannel, fleece or other similar materials such as pajamas are not permitted. Pants should be held up with a belt always. Please be aware of what your child is wearing in the morning. If a student is not in compliance with the dress code, the parent will be called to bring a change of clothes for their child. We have provided you with a copy of the complete dress code online at www.garfieldheightscityschools.com. Please review it with your child.
I have always been impressed with the sense of community and cooperation among the staff and students in this building. If there are any issues or challenges that arise, we work together as a family to find a solution that works best for our students. There is something special about this school and this district that makes me incredibly proud to say that I am a member of the family.
Enjoy the last few days of your summer vacation. I look forward to seeing everyone on August 15th. Don’t forget the high school schedule is from 7:30 – 2:20 M,T,W,F and 8:30 – 2:30 on late arrival Thursdays.
