208 3rd Street, SW; P. O. Box 185; Garden City, Alabama  35070

It is with great sadness that we announce the closing of Garden City Elementary School as of the end of this school year.  On April 23, 2015, the Cullman County Commission on Education voted to close our school at the end of the 2014-2015 school year.

We love our school and our building!  Unfortunately, we received the news August 5th that our building has some areas of concern that could pose a hazard to our precious children.  We will not take any risk that will put them in harm's way.  Therefore, we relocated every classroom to a safe place so that instruction can take place.  Updates will be posted on this page, our Facebook page (Garden City Elementary School) and our Twitter account (GCESmelton).  THANK YOU to our parents, community, town, local churches, and business partners for your tremendous show of support.  You make our school GR-R-R-REAT!
