GIS Families...please go to https://ybpay.lifetouch.com and use School Code: 14489923 to not miss out on your child getting their 2022-2023 yearbook. They are $20.00 with out any extras. There will be class composites for each class and candids from events and clubs in the building. Also the cover of the yearbook is actually the artwork of GIS students, so this is one of a kind and you won't want to miss having it to look back on the great memories for this school year. The deadline is March 17th!
As a district, we will continue to prioritize safety, explore the best methods, and ensure that current safety measures are accurately functioning. Tomorrow afternoon (3/15) at approximately 1:30 p.m., Galion City School District will conduct a districtwide lockdown drill to assess the newly installed Centegix CrisisAlert system. This drill will be the second district wide test of the system, which also notifies local first responders. The Galion Police Department will participate in the exercise to ensure the communication is received and dispatched properly. Practicing the procedures and systems we have in place ensures that they work as they should. We will continue to communicate with families regarding safety practices and updates to our procedures.
The Galion City Schools will be on a 2-hour delay today, March 14, 2023. Please remember that there will be no ROAR and no breakfast this morning. Be safe, Tigers!
GIS is so proud of Lucas Prosser (5th grade) and Max Bowser (4th grade) who won their sectionals, districts, and now this weekend are traveling to compete at state.

Please send an encouraging comment to our GIS tigers. Go and Be Great Lucas and Max! We are so PROUD of you already!

Last week our fifth graders in Ms. Prince and Ms. Showecker's classes created their own "shops" where they sold paper products to their classmates. This project was part of the economics module where they learned about economic decisions and markets.
Two of our fifth graders, Dominic Blue and Gage Robinett, were enjoying a lively game of chess during their library special. Mr. Lehman also teaches students after school on Thursdays how to play the game, so if you visit our school you may find more students during library participating in this game.
On Friday, January 6th, our 3rd grade students who earned the 2nd quarter PBIS incentive for following the 3 R's (Being Respectful, Ready, and Responsible) of our PBIS program were able to attend the Tiger's Den. They had a great time skating, hanging out with friends, and playing games. Our next quarterly incentive for 3rd quarter will be bowling.
Our 4th and 5th Grade students who made great behavioral choices throughout 2nd quarter were able to attend our PBIS incentive at the Tiger's Den today. Here are some pictures of our 5th graders enjoying their time skating, playing games, and hanging out with their friends and classmates.

During the month of December, our 5th grade classes at GIS will be conducting a non-perishable food drive to help support our community. All items will be donated to the Crawford County Community Action food pantry.

Today, the Galion library visited GIS students. During the visit they heard about the new books that have arrived at the library and heard more information about three of them. What a great place to visit over the Thanksgiving break while we are out of school Wednesday 11/23. Please call the library to determine their holiday schedule. Remember that a library card is free and there are many children books available online if students prefer electronic versions rather than paper copies. Galion Library Hours: Monday — Thursday 9 am — 8:30 pm Friday 9 am — 6 pm Saturday 9 am — 5 pm
Mrs. Smith's fourth graders want to thank all veterans for their service! After watching a video, they created a mural, on display at GIS, to thank and honor our veterans. Happy Veterans Day today!
