Birding at Galena Elementary!

Molly Bryden and her young male red-tailed hawk visited the Galena ES Science Club!  Thanks to Molly for sharing her experiences with this majestic animal.  Nancy Martin, President of the Kent County Bird Club, also joined us for some tips on birding and bird identification as our club readies for the Great Backyard Bird Count happening at Turner's Creek.  We celebrate lifelong learning and there is no better lifelong hobby as birding!

School Climate Survey

Kent County Public Schools value your input! Please help us improve our learning environment by completing the the KCPS Climate Survey. This survey is administered twice a year to staff, students, and parents to acquire their overall feelings about the school culture.  Our school improvement teams analyze the survey data and then make any necessary adjustments in order to improve the learning environment.  Thank you for your participation.

The Terrapins Are Here!

We have turtles! Mr. Tracy Hodge is again the proud recipient of two Poplar Island Diamondback Terrapin hatchlings. The hatchlings are enjoying their new home in his classroom and are excited to be cared for by the Galena Elementary students.

Over the last couple years, we have had great fun in naming the turtles, watching them grow and then releasing them into the wild. Keep a lookout for updates on their progress! If you happen to be in Mr. Hodge’s classroom, be sure to also take a peek at the growing number of fish in the classroom fish tank!
