Open Houses Scheduled for Wednesday, August 8th

PTA Hosting a Welcome Back Bash & Route 66 Soda Fountain Hosting a Back to School Fair

Spring Grove Primary Center and Liberty Elementary will both be hosting Open Houses on Wednesday, August 8th from 5:00-6:00 PM at their respective buildings.  The Open Houses give the students and parents the opportunity to bring school supplies to their classrooms early so they won't have to worry about bringing them on the first day of school.  Students, parents, and teachers also have the chance to meet each other during this time to hopefully help with the student's transition back to school.

The Galena Parent-Teacher Association will be hosting a Welcome Back party for students at Abbey Football Field immediately following the Open Houses from 6:00-7:00.  There will be a live band, food, and other activities for all to enjoy.  More details about the Welcome Back party will be given as they become available.

The first day of school for USD #499 students will be on Thursday, August 9th.
