Our Core Values: Respect | Hard Work | Integrity | Diversity | Communication | Excellence

September 17, 2014

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Jane D. Hull, former Gov. of Arizona, said "At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child's success is the positive involvement of parents." Here in Galloway Schools, we also believe in the importance of both parent and teacher/school/district working together for the benefit of a child's education.

Communication is an important component of that involvement, and we are proud of the many methods we utilize to reach out to our parents/guardians and community. Again this year we are partnered with School Messenger, a communications system that allows us to reach out to you via phone, text, and email, either from the school level, or from the district level. We use this system for daily attendance calls, for important messages or reminders, and also in emergency situations. To this end, it is vital that your child(ren)'s school has the most current information for you (email and phone numbers) - so be sure to let the school office know if you have updated any of this information.

Other ways that we communicate with you include this website, our Facebook and Twitter accounts, and our newly launched YouTube Channel – see links below and permanently at the top of this page. We hope you like what you find, and will become active participants using any of the above mentioned media.

We also like to communicate face-to-face! Thanks to those of you who attended our first two Back to School Nights (Roland Rogers and GTMS), and a reminder that the remaining nights (listed below) offer you the same opportunity to meet and greet district and school administration, teachers, board of education, and other staff members:

September 17—Arthur Rann Elementary School—6:45pm
September 18—Reeds Road Elementary School—6:30pm
September 23—Smithville Elementary School—6:30pm

District administrators will also be making a presentation regarding the new PARCC (Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness for College and Career) test a half an hour before the start times as listed above. You can find the presentation and handout by clicking HERE.

If you have questions or problems at any time during the school year, please know that you can contact us to try to find a solution. By working together, we can ensure that Galloway Schools remain places "where children and learning come first".
