Attention: Galloway Families
Back to school time is quickly approaching. On behalf of the teachers and staff, I would like to welcome all new families to our loving school community. The Galloway School team has been very busy this summer attending professional development sessions in preparation for a phenomenal instructional 2017-2018 school year. We strive to continuously hone our skill set to provide a christian environment distinguished by a challenging curriculum ignited by exceptional instructional leaders. It is with great pride that we share our 2016-2017 assessment results where our student average continues to rank nationally in the 90% percentile.
Way to go OWLS!

Parent Orientation – Thursday, September 8th

6:30 p.m. Lower School Parent Orientation
7:00 p.m. Upper School Parent Orientation
This is a time when teachers will review student learning and behavior expectations, events and volunteer needs. Unless your child is in Upper School (2nd – 5th grade), we ask that you not have your child with you in the classroom as it takes away your focus of gathering information and being able to ask questions. If you need child care, please take advantage of the child care offered that evening in the gym.
