November 14, 2014

As in the past, our district joins in the nationwide celebration of American Education Week from November 17th - 20th. You may or may not be aware that American Education week began in 1921 with the American Legion and National Education Association co-sponsoring the event in response to a national concern over illiteracy. Today, we continue the celebration with activities to recognize various members of the school community as well as to promote public awareness and support for education.

This year’s theme - Raise Your Hand for Student Success - reminds us of two important points: 1) our primary purpose is to help each and every child learn and develop; and 2) that it takes the efforts of many individuals and groups to accomplish that goal. Part of AEW is recognition of support staff on Wednesday, November 19th and guest (substitute) teachers on Friday, November 20th. Here in Galloway, parents/guardians and grandparents are encouraged to visit their child’s classroom or other grade or school-wide activities. The schedule for the week is listed below:
