A message from Garfield's new 2016-2017 principal:
My name is Alicia Arenas and I am excited to be a part of the Wildcat family. I was born in Los Angeles, CA. I attended Occidental College in Los Angeles and moved to the Bay Area in 2004. I live in Oakland with my husband and five year old daughter.
My goals for Garfield are to have a safe and welcoming learning community that prepares our scholars for college and beyond. I feel fortunate to work together with staff members at Garfield and families to support the learning of our scholars. I look forward to working with you this school year.
Garfield Elementary School Principal
