Through the collaborative efforts of all who pass through our door, we provide a safe learning community that develops lifelong learners and responsible citizens.

END OF YEAR EVENT SCHEDULES

All drop-off and pick-ups will be made curbside from the car rider line at the front of the school. We ask that parents clearly write with bold marker their child's first name, last name, and section number on a sheet of paper and place it in your front passenger side window. A staff member will greet you and direct you to your assigned pick-up area. Once you pull up to your designated number, please remain in your vehicle and pop the trunk/back hatch. A staff member will place your child's items inside. Please have items that you want to return in a bag (labeled with your child's name) in your trunk. We will collect them at the same time.


A printable version of the schedule below is available by clicking here.

TOP DOG "CLAP-OUT" MAY 28th

Clap-Out is a Galatas tradition held in honor of our Top Dogs. Even though we are not able to be together in school for this event, we would like to "Clap-Out" our fourth graders via a car parade. We are inviting fourth grade families to join in the car parade through the school's front drive as our staff lines the route to cheer them on to their future endeavors.


In a effort to keep the parade moving and not block traffic on Cochran's Crossing Drive, we ask that you please follow the recommended times above to join the parade. Please enter the school drive from the north on Cochran's Crossing Drive and exit south (turn right) onto Cochran's Crossing Drive when leaving the school. This will eliminate crossing traffic.
