Located in the beautiful city of Oceanside, California, Garrison Elementary School is a visual and performing arts emphasis school supporting over 500 students from preschool to fifth grade.  
We recognize that in order to be successful, our children need support from both the home and school.  We know that an effective partnership with parents makes a great difference in supporting your child’s education.  As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s successes.  We will pledge to do our best to carry out our responsibilities and ask that you help us to guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

  • Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready to learn.
  • Completes all homework assignments given by teachers.
  • Applies the 8 Keys: Ownership, Failure Leads to Success, Commitment, This is It, Speak with Good Purpose, Integrity, Flexibility and Balance at home, school and in the community.
  • Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of what he/she is learning.

On behalf of the staff at Garrison Elementary School, we feel privileged to be a part of this school family.  We thank you in advance for your support and look forward to your participation this school year.
