This award is open to students in grades 4 through 6 who participate in activities and earn points in different categories. Block “G” is intended to recognize those very involved students, and reward them for the work ethic they have exhibited in all areas and the following qualities that Garfield hopes to foster in all of its students:
- The desire for self-improvement.
- Dedication and commitment in reaching for goals.
- Concern for and service to others.
- The willingness to assume peer leadership, responsibilities, and become a positive role model for others.
Students are given a Block “G” plaque and attendance awards at an awards ceremony. Students who continue to achieve points are given gold disks to place on their plaques. Students will bring home at the beginning of the year information about specific requirements for this award.
