Dear Garrett Park Elementary Parents/Guardians: 

Summer greetings! I hope this letter finds you well and that your family is excited to gear up for the start of the new school year. I would like to welcome all the new families who are joining our community this year. This letter has a lot of information about the school year so please take a careful look at it. Garrett Park is a wonderful community where we do everything possible to ensure success for each child. Our motto, One Band, One Sound, resonates as the learning community prides itself on supporting students to reach their goals. We are excited for you to join us and become involved in your child’s school experience. 

 We have been working hard to ensure our beautiful school building is ready for students on Day 1. The Building Services team, led by Eugene Martin, has put in a tremendous amount of work to thoroughly clean each area of school. We cannot wait to see you at Open House on Thursday, August 30, at 2:00 p.m. Everyone is welcome to join us and it is a great chance to meet your teacher and reconnect with classmates of past and present. The PTA is hosting a popsicle party in the back of the school at 3:00 p.m. immediately following the Open House. Don’t forget, the first day of school is Tuesday, September 4th! All the information you need to begin the new year is included in the attached summer packet; however, if you have any questions, please contact us at 240-740-0700. We are here to help you have a smooth and happy beginning to the school year. 

Sincerely, 

Dan Tucci   Melanie Bachrach
