Remembering the Past … Looking to the Future Residents Invited to Special Event at Garfield
As they prepare to move to their new school next fall, Garfield Elementary students are hosting a special tribute for their current building, located at 900 E. Broadway.
Principal Kathy Edson and Garfield students will present “Farewell Old Friend” May 21 from 12:30-2:30 p.m. The come-and-go event will feature music by Garfield students on the front steps, tours of the building and refreshments. Renderings, photos and color boards of the new Garfield school will also be on display.
“This is an exciting time for our community,” Superintendent Shawn Hime said. “We hope Enid residents will join us for this event, and we extend a special invitation to former Garfield students, teachers, parents and friends.”
Garfield has been in its current location since 1919. Next year, students will move to their newly constructed building at the corner of 7th Street and Elm.
The new school, built for 650 students, will feature a first-class library, cafeteria and gymnasium, as well as the latest amenities for 21st-century learning.
A community open house will be hosted this summer at the new school.
