Thanksgiving Feast - Nov. 18
We're excited to share that this year for Thanksgiving, students in PreK-4 and older will have the opportunity to eat with a small group of their peers in the gymnasium, Thursday, November 18.
This special feast will be catered by our very own Krysta! Please place your child's Thanksgiving Feast order as soon as possible!
Are you available to help that day?

Holiday Event - December 11
Save the Date: Saturday, December 11
Please Pray for Wonderful Weather
We are developing plans for a beautiful, outdoor holiday show, with designated time slots per grade. While this will decrease crowd size in the stage area, we hope to also include a community mingle area for those who long to reconnect with Galloway Friends, familiar and new. We hope you're as excited as we are!
More information coming soon!
Student Council Update
Be watching for information regarding our next opportunity to share with our community. We will be serving hospitalized children in our community for Christmas through Jack's Project. More information coming, soon!
