Thursday Updates

Dear Galvin Families,

Every Thursday (occasionally it's a Friday) we send out a weekly update and reminder of any events in the upcoming week(s) at The Galvin. Below are next week's upcoming events.

GMS 5th Annual Cultural Heritage Night

GMS's 5th Annual Cultural Heritage Night will be held on this Thursday October 17, 2019 from 6pm-8pm.

We hope that you will join us for this wonderful evening dedicated to showcasing and celebrating the many cultures within our school and community. #CHN is a school wide event.

We will be showcasing performances (dance, music, and singing), have a tasting of foods from around the world, and offer other activities for families to participate in.

Please come out and help make this event another resounding success.


We ask that all families bring a dish from your heritage to be included in the tasting menu. We are asking for a dish that would serve 5+ persons and is commonly consumed within your culture.

Please note that you may provide ingredients on the dish, but if you have allergies or food restrictions please take caution when partaking in the food portion of this event.

Please use this RSVP link to let us know what you will be bringing to the night. Please contact Ms. Amy Muldoon, GMS Student Services Coordinator, via email: with any questions.
