Jayden will receive recognition on the lottery's website along with merchandise and a gift card for his award.

GIS Families, don't forget that we have NO SCHOOL on Thursday or Friday. As your students are off these next two days from school, we have a challenge for them to begin working on. Next week we want to thank our staff and teachers for all they do for our students in the building. Each day your student could participate by following the day of the week on the flyer. Mrs. Duffey is accepting the videos and pictures at duffey.jessica@galionschools.org. Thanks for making next week special for our staff and teachers. Mrs. Robbeloth and Mrs. Duffey

GIS 4th grade students had an awesome time during our Turkey Talk assembly. Students were able to learn all about turkeys and how they survive, their adaptations and habitats. They were even able to see what a real turkey looked like up close (of course it's been through the taxidermy process).

During Connections Weekend, the GMS, GIS, and GPS lighthouse teams and GIS Safety Patrol members worked together to show the community their leadership skills. The GMS Lighthouse team trained our GIS and GPS tigers on how to serve our guests at the Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast hosted at Galion Intermediate School. The audience was also serenaded by the students at GIS and GPS singing the Leader in Me song. GHS sent over artwork to display for the event as well. Mrs. Robbeloth and Mrs. Allerding were very proud of our students and thanks to the staff from the various buildings that volunteered their time as well.

GIS is excited that our rock climbing wall is up and our kids are loving it! Mr. Willeke is teaching classes during the PE special, the safe way to use the newest addition to his class. Students begin to the right of the picture going across the monkey bars, then horizontally across the rock wall not to go past the top line, and make their way through the net to finish at the second rock wall. Students will only be able to use this part of the gym when the mats are on the ground and supervised by an adult such as Mr. Willeke. Also, it is not mandatory that your child uses the rock wall if they are not comfortable. Mr. Willeke offers open gym choices for those students such as jump rope, basketball, running or other types of exercises so they can continue to work on their physical wellness too.

Galion Intermediate is celebrating Start with Hello Week! Start with Hello Week starts Monday, September 19 and runs all week until Friday, September 23. Start with Hello Week brings attention to the growing epidemic of social isolation and empowers young people to create a culture of inclusion and connectedness within their school, youth origination, and community. This is a great way to connect what we are doing in the building to our district and building mission statement as well. Please see the flyer for what the students can wear each day. For Monday- comfy clothes need to be school appropriate- students can wear their pajama tops/pants, sweatshirts/sweatpants and basketball shorts this day only (dressing like a gym teacher) Thank you for your understanding. Have a great weekend everyone- can't wait to see everyone next week to see what they wear! Mrs. Robbeloth
