FROM OUR PRINCIPAL
Welcome Back! Galloway has been bustling all summer long with projects galore. The biggest change to our building is our new hallway and music room floors. What a difference a floor can make. Our hallways have become so bright and inviting. Not only will they improve the appearance of the building, they also incorporate the hall colors to make navigating our building even easier. I dare you to not spontaneously start following the winding path as you walk down our halls.
Our second biggest change is with our staff. With the addition of several new staff members, as well as some grade level changes, there is a renewed sense of excitement and purpose for this coming school year as we begin our Professional Learning Communities journey. Grade level teams as well as specialists will be meeting weekly to create, analyze and modify grade level curriculum and assessments to guarantee each student receives a rigorous, yet appropriate education. These meetings will help us guarantee that no matter what classroom your child is assigned to, they will be given the high quality education that our families have come to expect from Channahon.
When the school, parents and children work together as a team, there are no limits to what can be achieved. With open communication and understanding, I am confident this year will be full of successes!
Please take an opportunity to familiarize yourself with the District Handbook and the Galloway supplement which can be located on this website. You'll also be receiving information through our Thursday Newsletter (Galloway Gazette) and the communication you receive from your classroom teacher. As always, we are here for you if you have any questions or concerns or compliments. We are only a visit, call or email away.
On behalf of the staff at N.B. Galloway, welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! We are looking forward spending the year with you!
