Things to Consider
For Your Information

- PARENT READERS:  We love having parent readers on most Fridays from 12:35-12:55.

-COLLECT YOUR BOX TOPS!  At the end of each month, we collect Box Tops as a way to give back to Galatas.  This is also an easy way for relatives to help out our school since grandparents, aunts and uncles, and even neighbors and friends can collect theirs too!


8:05-9:20         Math
9:20-10:00       Language Arts
10:00-10:15     Motor Break
10:15-11:30     Language Arts
11:30-12:00     Lunch
12:00-12:20     Recess
12:20-12:50     Lab Time (or ELA block cont.)
1:00-1:55        Specials
1:55-2:30        Science
2:30-3:00        Social Studies
3:00                Dismissal

  • NEAT is a program at Galatas.  NEAT! Never Ever Absent or Tardy!  We are very interested in winning an award for NEAT!

  • FYI-Birthday treats--Please note it is optional for parents to send in birthday treats; it is not a requirement. If you choose to do so, please send in the treats with your child or drop them off in the front office by 10:00 and the birthday treats will be served after lunch in the cafeteria.  Cookies or cupcakes are examples of foods that may be used to celebrate birthdays, but they must be store bought (no homemade goodies allowed). These are easy and quick to serve.  Cookie cakes should be pre-cut.  Birthday party invitations and treat bags may not be passed out at school.  

  • FYI-Snacks in First Grade...A snack will be the food you choose to send (or not) for your child.  It is very important that this snack be something nutritious and easy to eat in a carpeted classroom such as: fresh fruits, vegetables, and cheese sticks.  Please do not send things that need a spoon to eat such as applesauce, canned fruit, yogurt (or even gogurt)--these items are fine for the cafeteria, but are too likely to be messy in our carpeted classroom.  Fruit snacks and sugary snacks/dessert items are discouraged at snack time. No chips, candy, nuts, or nut products.
