We love our students here at Garwood Elementary!
Since its opening in the fall of 1991 Garwood Elementary has grown with two additional classrooms and a lunchroom remodel. Unfortunately the building can't be enlarged any further.
Each Grade level has two classes and we also feature a 1/2 combo class and 4/5 combo class. All of our teachers have teaching and classroom experience from first year to over 30 years. Garwood is served by a full time Counselor (Mrs Martines). There are specialists in Music, Technology, and P.E. 6th graders also have an opportunity to take Beginning Band, Game and Animation design or a STEAM course.
Garwood's staff provides additional opportunities for students throughout the year. After school clubs are available. Art Club, Chess Club (3rd graders are taught how to play Chess during their instructional week), Cross Country, STREAM (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts and Math) classes are in February and March, and in the spring at lunchtime "Fit for Bloomsday."
Rathdrum Parks and Recreation use our facility for after school sports (soccer, basketball, flag football, baseball) and our school also hosts 4-H groups, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, and Campfire during the year.
