Primitivo Garcia Elementary has over 30 partners/Youth Friends. They assist our students with their math and reading efforts, as well as social / emotional needs. They come to us from KC businesses (KC Star Newspaper, KCP&L) and churches (Jacobs Well Church, Grace & Holy Trinity Church). Their assistance occurs on an individual basis, with small groups of students, or in the classroom setting. We appreciate our volunteers greatly, as our students benefit academically, behaviorally, and socially.
Garcia is currently partnering with Park College and The University of Missouri to provide student teachers in our building to assist with our students in their daily learning. We currently have 12 Park College students working with first grade through sixth grade, and three MU students working with Kindergarten through sixth grade
