Galion Primary students spread holiday cheer

December 20, 2018

Galion Primary School students and staff members shared holiday cheer when they visited nursing homes in Galion Dec 11, 12 and 13.

This program was originally developed by the district’s previous social worker, Mrs. Carly George. Students sang carols and gave holiday cards to the residents during their visits.

“This is an activity that both the residents at the nursing homes and students have enjoyed,” Galion School Social Worker Kirstie Naumoff said. “The students had the chance to interact with the residents while distributing cards at each nursing home.”

Students visited the residents at Signature Healthcare, Galion Pointe and Magnolia Terrace. Naumoff believes this activity helps students have a greater appreciation for the people who live in their community.

“The Holiday season is a great time to bring the community together,” she said. “This is also a wonderful opportunity for students to learn about giving back to others by giving their time!”

Galion Primary students will have additional opportunities to visit with residents of Galion nursing homes throughout the remainder of the school. Please contact Galion School Social Work Kirstie Naumoff at for more information about this special holiday event.
