GALEWOOD PRIDE

Guest Colummist: Mr. Steve Chartier, Galewood Early Elementary Principal

Galewood Early Elementary staff members work collaboratively in the best interest of children to ensure a safe and orderly educational environment. A significant part of a student’s academic success correlates directly to the behavior that they exhibit. Part of achieving an educational environment that is conducive to student learning consists of recognizing and identifying appropriate behavior and proactively building healthy relationships and a sense of community with and among our students. This includes working with individual students when needed, to take full responsibility for their behavior.

FREE & REDUCED MEALS: NOT ALWAYS ENOUGH

Guest Columist: Brian Latty, CPS Food Service Supervisor

The Charlotte Public Schools Food Service Department strives to ensure that all of our students have the opportunity to eat well-balanced, nutritional meals while at school. One way we do this is by making sure all families have access to applications for free or reduced price meals. These are sent to every household enrolled at Charlotte Public Schools at the beginning of each new school year. Applications are also available on our website, in building offices, and by contacting the Food Service Department. Once an application is submitted, notification is returned with the updated family status of free, reduced price or full pay meals based on their family income or federal assistance program for the school year.

The new proposal shaves some of the costs that were of most concern to community members, but still features the critical safety, instructional, and extracurricular components that are necessary to continue preparing our kids for a successful future.
