Bland is a proud Seattle educator. For 26 years he’s been the locker room attendant at Garfield High School – at least, that’s his official title. Students would say he does much more. Joe served several roles at the school. He was a disciplinarian who helped run Saturday detention. He also joked with students and gave guidance to those in need. His portrait is painted outside the locker room, where he’ll be missed this Fall.From the GHS PTSA Facebook page, this news:
If you'd like to help, you can do so here.
GHS Quincy Jones Auditorium & Gym will be the site for the 2016 International Imagine Cup Finals and a Robo World Cup Hackathon. Donuts in the am and a tasty lunch...plus a celebrity judge! Open to ALL GHS students (including 2016 and incoming 9th graders).As a judge they have the actor, John Boyega from the new Star Wars series. It's unclear to me if this is open to the public; I have a call into the district.
DATE: Friday, July 29th from 9am - 2pm
Don't miss out! Permission slips and details available via the Garfield website.
I note that the Board is having an executive session today from noon to 1 pm on "potential litigation."
Director Rick Burke has a community meeting tomorrow, Sat. the 23rd, from 4-5:30 pm at the Fremont Public Library.
