AAA Patrol of the Year Award

This year Garfield School had the honor of presenting the AAA Outstanding Safety Patrol of the Year to their own Kasper Szymczak!  Kasper was chosen amongst dozens of patrol nominees in Northern New Jersey.  Kasper’s patrol advisors, Jayme Mack, Rebecca Lonnay and Stephanie Gerbasio, nominated him because of his dedication to his position, his school and his peers.   Kasper is a very enthusiastic and kind patrol to all those attending the school.  Kasper has formed strong trustworthy bonds with his peers as well as the members of our staff.  He is conscientious about his responsibilities and continuously attended them all year long.  Garfield School was lucky to have such a dependable young man amongst an already amazing group of patrols.

On May 24, 2016, Stephen Rajczyk from AAA came to Garfield School to recognize Kasper for his accomplishments.  He was given a plaque as well as a $200 check as an award.

The Garfield Community is extremely proud of Kasper for achieving this honor.  He has a bright future and we’re looking forward to seeing what else this incredible, young man has to offer!
