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
GIS families...I wanted to remind everyone that spirit wear is only for tops/hoodies. All pants and shorts must conform to the dress code in the GIS Student Handbook. No sweat pants or basketball shorts are allowed unless given permission for a "reward" by the administration team. After today, this will become a dress code violation. Thank you for your understanding.
The PTO has framed the yearly student art pictures for each grade level from the 2021-22 school year. These works of art are are now hanging in the hallways of the Primary and Intermediate buildings along with the art from previous years. Congratulations to the following students for having their art work chosen: KG Macie Wolfersberger, 1st Cooper Main, 2nd Quinn Bailey, 3rd Jocelyn Glass, 4th Jaquelyn Young, 5th Addison Parsons. We are looking forward to another great year of Art projects this year.
Just a reminder GIS families...no school on Monday. We hope you enjoy your Labor Day with your families. Can't wait to see you on Tuesday. Mrs. Robbeloth and staff
Ms. Garver's class was working on reading and making something from a recipe. They synergized as a class to make cinnamon applesauce. They told Mrs. Robbeloth that they used apples, water, sugar, cinnamon, and even a little bit of lemon to create their Friday treat. It sure was scrumptious! Great job everyone.
Great things are happening at GIS! Students in Mrs. Stinehour's 3rd grade class have been working hard on earning their classroom Tiger Paws. A class can earn a Tiger Paw for exhibiting the 3 R's (Ready, Respectful, and Responsible). They can earn these Tiger Paws from any staff member in the building. At 5 Tiger Paws, they were able to wear jeans for the day. As you can see, they are well on their way to the next incentive. It's a GREAT day to be a Tiger at GIS! Way to go students- Mrs. Robbeloth and Duffey are proud of you.
Mrs. Duckworth's 3rd Grade class were discussing Wildly Important Goals today in Leadership with Mrs. Shifley. Our students are learning how to use the eight habits of the Leader in Me program at GIS during their Leadership block.
Reminder to GIS families: Picture day will be here on 9/6, so we wanted to give you time to look for those outfits. Students who are purchasing pictures may be out of uniform as long as the outfits are school appropriate. Shirts and dresses should have sleeves and logos and wording on shirts should be respectful to our community. Thank you for keeping our students responsible, respectful and ready. Can't wait to see them all dressed up for their picture day.
Just a reminder GIS families, tonight will be the Instrument Petting Zoo in the cafeteria at 6:00-8:00 PM.

If you have any questions about the band program and can not make the event tonight at GIS please email Mr. Warkall at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see you there.
