New program recognizes student leaders at Galion Middle School

December 5, 2017

The Galion Middle School staff and administration is making leadership a focal point of the educational environment this school year with a new program called “LEAD”.

The program, which is based on the Seven Habits of the Leader in Me program, aims to recognize students who show outstanding leadership skills and modeling of the Habits.

“We started a new LEAD class that is being taught during our Tiger Time each day,” said Joe Morabito, Middle School Principal. “While every student will take the LEAD class during the school year, they don’t need to be in the course at the time they’re recognized.”

Teachers nominate students from each grade level at the end of the week, and the students receive a $5 gift card to different restaurants in the area. One student from the weekly grade-level winners is selected to be recognized at the end of each month.

“We make the monthly announcement of the grade-level LEAD winners, three in total each month, a big deal with a monthly assembly that features a different theme,” said Morabito. “Monthly student winners receive a special Galion Tigers t-shirt that can be worn any day of the week.”

Photos of the weekly LEAD winners, as well as the monthly student winners, can be found on the GMS website at middleschool.galionschools.org. Please contact Principal Joe Morabito at morabito.joe@galionschools.org to learn more about the LEAD recognition program or to be a sponsor of a weekly prize for students.
