Just a reminder that students may only take the quizzes at school. Every month we will have a pizza party for the highest AR point winners in each grade level. Let’s do this tigers, and meet our 50,000 book goal!!


Strive for Less Than Five

Last school year 50 students at Garner Elementary received bicycles for Perfect or Exemplary Attendance! Great job for meeting the Strive for Less than 5 initiative!!

This year we have partnered with Polk Vision to bring  awareness of the importance of student attendance in school. Our “Strive for Five” initiative sets to encourage students to miss less than five days of school. We will reward bicycles every 9 weeks for students with perfect attendance ( a drawing will be held to select 3 winners). All student with perfect attendance for the entire school year will receive a bike at the end of the year.

Tiger Pride Celebration

The Tiger Pride Celebration is held every Friday! Students will earn tiger paws to attend a surprise event each week. 

How do students earn tiger paws to attend the Tiger Pride Celebration? When students make positive choices such as holding the door for others, taking responsibility for their actions, walking safely, or cleaning up after themselves, they can earn a tiger paw. Students that ride the bus can earn paws from the driver and/or attendant by staying seated and following directions.

Let’s all ROAR at Garner!!
