GARIBALDI GRADE SCHOOL – HOME OF THE WOLVES
Welcome to our web page for Garibaldi Grade School (GGS), “Home of the Wolves”. We are located on the hillside in Garibaldi overlooking the marina and Tillamook Bay just off of Highway 101. A common landmark known to many is the “G” at the top of the hill as you drive through town. Garibaldi Grade School currently serves approximately 175 students in grades K-5 with an average class size of 21.
We are a Title I school, which benefits all students by providing extra instructional assistant support in the classroom for instruction. We are fortunate to have a full-time Counselor and part-time Literacy Coach on staff. Students receive up to 30 minutes of PE or Music daily provided by specialists as well as have access to Art Literacy through the Community Arts Project monthly. Our students and families also have access to a full time Family Resource Coordinator.
Our 2nd-5th grade classrooms all have a 1-to-1 ratio of Chromebooks to students, while our K-1 students have accessibility to Chromebooks periodically throughout the week. Each classroom is equipped with projectors, document cameras, and Activeboards. The purpose of our technology is to enhance students’ learning throughout the day.
We are a PBIS School (Positive Behavioral Interventions Support). The three school rules are ‘BE SAFE, BE RESPECTFUL, and BE RESPONSIBLE’. Here at Garibaldi, we try and support our students in their behavior by learning about making good choices as well as working on self-regulation skills to help them in life.
The staff members are committed to improving their teaching skills and methods of instruction. They are a dedicated and caring group who support each other through collaboration and planning for instruction. Our teachers have built “Teacher Teams” with whom they plan and meet weekly with and to support all of our students and staff alike. We have a strong focus on reading and math and have a built in reading intervention block into our daily schedule.
Garibaldi Grade School does have a Parent Group that is involved in various school activities. They are always looking for more members and support for our students at Garibaldi. Please do not hesitate to call the school to get involved!
Garibaldi Grade School is a wonderful place to learn and grow. The staff and I look forward to working with you and providing a wonderful learning experience to your children.
