Galion High School government classes took a trip to the Ohio Supreme Court yesterday! This field trip gave these juniors and seniors an opportunity to see and understand the work of their elected officials in real-life application. These students have focused on studying the U.S. Government as well as the State of Ohio Government and some Supreme Court Cases throughout the fall semester.
Friendly reminder, Tigers! December 16 is the last day of school before winter break. It is also a two-hour early release day.
Yesterday, Galion Intermediate School kicked off holiday spirit week with "You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch," and everyone wore green!

Today is International Volunteer Day! Thank you to all of the volunteers who help make Galion City Schools great.
Special Education Day is celebrated to commemorate the signing of the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) into law in 1975. IDEA granted children with special needs access to free and quality public education. We are so grateful to all of the educators who continue to provide our students with a meaningful, safe and supportive learning experience.
This school year, we will remain focused on what it means to be a Galion Tiger with our newly established Profile of a Tiger. This Profile is a roadmap guiding our district to what we consider to be successful Galion graduates. These values should extend beyond our hallways, classrooms and arenas of competition. Each month, we will focus on a specific trait in and outside of the classroom, continuing to develop these skills and traits in each and every Galion student. In December, we are discussing what it means to be involved. A Galion Tiger is involved. They display a passion for success within the community through active engagement in service opportunities while also participating in school-related activities to cultivate a sense of Galion Pride.
Galion City Schools purchased new technology in 2022 to provide interactive learning opportunities for Galion students. The new technology, ActiveFloors, reinforces academics in all subject areas while allowing children to get out of their chairs and move. Through a 21st Century Learning Communities Grant, the district has purchased four mobile ActiveFloor units. The Active Floor Units include a mobile box containing a projector, computer, and camera that tracks movement. A white vinyl floor mat is used for maximum visual display of the games. The mat and unit can be moved, allowing any floor space to be used as an interactive, instructional playground - stimulating movement and competition while students learn. Students at Galion Primary, Intermediate and Middle Schools now have access to this multi-sensory tool during their technology and physical education lessons. The ROAR program, the district’s before and after school program, has trained its staff and begun to use the mobile units to provide this immersive educational technology as well.
We have a small surplus of GHS 2022 Spy Yearbooks available for sale to the public. The cost is $49.00 each. There is a limited amount, so it is on a First Come First Serve basis. Contact Mrs. Faulkner at the high school, or email email@example.com. Please make checks payable to The Galion Spy. They can be picked up at the high school Monday-Friday 8:00am -3:00pm.
Last week, Galion Intermediate School staff shared a Thanksgiving feast. Staff members were challenged to show how thankful they are for their co-workers winning small prizes for participating, such as jeans day passes, helping hand coupons, PJ Day prizes and movie passes. We are so grateful for all of our GIS staff!
In honor of Veterans Day, fourth grade students worked together to create a collage celebrating and thanking our veterans.
Happy Thanksgiving Day, Tigers!

Galion ninth graders attended Empowerment Day hosted by Marion-Crawford Prevention Programs in partnership with Galion High School. Ninth graders participated in workshops and large group presentations and worked in small groups focusing on alcohol, marijuana, vaping and mental health. Grace Point Church graciously provided a space free of charge for this event. Workshops were presented by the MCPP staff, the Crawford County Public Health and the Galion Teen Institute youth leaders.
Thanksgiving break will be Wednesday, November 23 - Friday, November 25. Classes will resume on Monday, November 28. Have a safe and festive thanksgiving break, Tigers!
This week, Galion Primary School showered teachers and staff with appreciation. Each day encouraged students to celebrate the staff by writing notes, giving compliments and even dressing up like a teacher!
Today is Substitute Teacher Appreciation Day! Substitute teachers are essential in K-12 education. They serve as educational bridges, providing continuity and making it possible to seamlessly educate students in the absence of regular classroom educators. Substitute teachers make it possible for teachers to get the breaks they need while keeping kids engaged and on track for success. We are grateful for all of our reliable and enthusiastic substitute teachers!
