Parents/Guardians, This is a reminder to participate in the parent survey supplement, part of the Illinois 5Essentials Survey administration. A parent survey report will be generated if at least 20% of parents respond to the survey. While the parent data will not be made public, the parent report will be made available to Mrs. Launius and Mr. Crank and will enable them to make considerations based on the responses given by Galatia parents. Your participation in the parent survey will help us understand the conditions at your child’s school and guide improvement. Again, your identity and individual survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child. Please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ to take the parent survey.

Congratulations to them and kudos to all the teams who fished today in this brutal weather!

Teacher Spotlight: Jenna Gunning. Mrs. Gunning has been a kindergarten teacher for Galatia Grade School for 7 years. She also currently serves as Grade School Drama Co-Sponsor. Mrs. Gunning had this to say about working at Galatia Schools: "I would defiantly say there are so many wonderful things that I love about my job. Just to name a few, I would have to start with the people that I work with. Not only do I have a great group of coworkers, but they have also turned into some wonderful friendships. The community and the parents that I have meet during my time here have been amazing. I absolutely love teaching Kindergarten. Getting to watch the students as they move on to the older grades and see how well have they done is truly touching to know that I had a part of that. I also admire my coworker in Kindergarten. We work very well together and we help each other thrive and grow." Mrs. Gunning's coworkers had this to say: "Her students and co-workers love her and her joyful spirit. She is a hard worker and she makes learning fun for her students." We asked her some interesting questions: Question: What is your spirit animal? Response: I would have to say that my spirit animal would have to be a dolphin. I absolutely love to go swimming and being in the water. I love to go to the ocean and soak up the sun on the beach. 😍 Question: Where is your favorite destination you’ve visited, and why? Response: My favorite destination would have to be Gatlinburg, TN. We go every year for vacation. It has such beautiful scenery and is a family oriented destination. There is so much to do that you will never get bored. If you ever need tips for a Smokey Mountain trip, I am the girl to ask. 😊 Thank you Mrs. Gunning for all your hard work!
