Who coined the phrase “We Scot This?” Credit for Galloway’s unofficial motto of the 2020-21 school year goes to Claire Long, wife of Assistant Head of School for Academics David Long and mom to Caleb ’31 and Bennett ’33. She coined the term when the pandemic began in the spring of 2020 as a way to keep morale high, and it caught on instantly community-wide.

Dear Galloway Community, When I first started my career in education, I often heard that schools are places where time stands still, and for a long time, I believed this. The longer I have worked in education, the more I have come to realize that good schools never have this problem. While they hold true to their established traditions and rituals, these schools also leave room for new traditions, new ideas, new programs, and new people. Good schools realize that staying true to one’s self does not mean change is nonexistent; instead, it means constant, intentional, and relevant change leads to transformation. Thanks to Elliott Galloway, our past has provided us with a foundation that was meant to be built upon and built to withstand whatever the world throws at us - and 2020 has definitely thrown some things at us! Last March, we saw first-hand what having a strong foundation and being open to change meant. Our classrooms went completely virtual in less than a week, as we moved our entire faculty, staff, and student body to continuous learning (check out page 6 to learn what this means). Our school sat empty for almost three months, yet the learning and progress never stopped. There was no time to sit idly. Instead, we did exactly what Mr. Galloway would have expected us to do: roll up our sleeves and get to work changing, rearranging, designing, rethinking, making, creating, getting better, and moving forward. I could not be prouder of Galloway’s incredible faculty and staff for stretching well outside of their comfort zones to ensure that our school and our students were being taken care of. However, I would be remiss to not acknowledge that the absence of certain traditions was felt by many, particularly the 71 members of the Class of 2020. These students missed out on a uniquely Galloway graduation ceremony, the culmination of all their years of schooling together. We look forward to welcoming them back in the future to both show our appreciation for them and acknowledge what they lost. Our past has given us the tools to thrive, even in an unpredictable year like 2020, and it is in this moment that we


must allow ourselves to continue to dream and think forward as a school. Galloway’s entire community has created a strategic plan to guide us for the next several years. As you will see in the pages of this digital magazine, this plan puts our students at the center of our work - a tenet that Mr. Galloway believed wholeheartedly. Our student’s academic and emotional health and well-being are priorities in this plan, and by investing in this, we know we are setting our students up for success well after Galloway. As part of this strategic plan, the Board of Trustees also worked on and approved a new Mission Statement. This updated statement speaks both to the timeless values of the school and the skills and competencies that all students need to successfully navigate an ever-changing world full of unpredictability. Just as we have lived our past missions out loud, I know we will do the same now. Galloway’s strong foundation has always relied on the dedication and generosity of its community, the full scope of which can be seen in this year’s Annual Report. For decades, this culture of philanthropy has enabled us to provide programs above and

beyond daily operations, which is more important now than ever. From professional development for teachers in a rapidly changing instructional landscape and health and safety protocols across campus to technology innovation for students and faculty and financial assistance for families, the support of our families has continued to strengthen our school, even in the most unpredictable of times. Although we were not able to celebrate Galloway’s 50th anniversary in person, there is absolutely nothing stopping us from celebrating the next 50 years, knowing we are a school that continues to bring purpose to the lives of the next generation of dreamers, doers, and change agents. Our storied history is the reason why our present and future are so bright and filled with excitement. Galloway has changed a lot in 50 years and will change even more in the next 50, but it will always be built on a foundation that is strong enough to withstand whatever wind happens to blow its way. With pride and appreciation,

Dr. James Calleroz White Head of School

HOW WE RE-OPENED Teaching & Learning Team Supports Faculty Through School Year Unlike Any Other Peggy Benkeser, Cheryl Despathy, Amanda Edwards, Lexi Fields ’98, and David Long - also known as Galloway’s Teaching and Learning team - worked throughout the summer to prepare teachers to teach effectively in the new circumstances. The team provided a weekly newsletter containing resources for teachers to practice; among the lessons provided to teachers were discussions about social and emotional learning, ways to use technology tools, and different means of accessing remote learning tools. In addition, they worked with faculty to help them find meaningful professional development to help them prepare for the upcoming school year, like a Fairy Dust Teaching course for our Early Learning faculty. As a partner school with Global Online Academy, Galloway’s faculty signed up for over 50 of their summer professional learning classes. In order to best prepare faculty for the fall, the Teaching and Learning team chose Neuroteach by Glen Whitman and Ian Kelleher as the summer reading selection, due to its application of neuroscience to teaching online or in person. Cheryl Despathy created an online course in Canvas, the learning management system for Upper Learning, for teachers to interact with the ideas of Neuroteach and with each other. The Canvas course offered a model for teachers to emulate in their own classrooms. Central to the goals of the team is the concept of a “growth mindset,” which encourages individuals to stretch themselves by learning and applying new skills. Maintaining a growth mindset,


a concept formulated by Stanford University professor Carol Dweck, is fundamental to the school’s approach to hyflex teaching to prepare teachers for students learning in their classrooms, students learning from home, and a hybrid of the two. After surveying all faculty members, the team worked closely with principals and assistant principals to create the new schedule for the school year. They provided a crash course for faculty on how to teach in the 85-minute block schedule, which is currently in use in ML and UL; students were then asked to fill out a survey and provide feedback on the schedule and their experience in the classroom. They also created a number of in-house tools to support teachers, such as a document mirror that allows faculty and students in continuous learning to share their work. Teaching and Learning continues to offer on-demand tech support and professional development for teachers. Whether troubleshooting an issue with Zoom or providing hyflex teaching support, the five members of Teaching and Learning, along with Galloway’s incredible technology department, remain focused on providing prompt support to ease the burden for teachers during this unprecedented school year.

FACULTY & STAFF Galloway Welcomes First Chief Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer At the start of the 2020-21 school year, Galloway welcomed Dr. Karen Bradberry to the community as the school’s first Chief Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer. With over 20 years of experience as an independent school and educational non-profit educator, Karen’s experience combined with her passion and love for children made her both an easy choice and the right choice for Galloway. Dr. Bradberry earned her B.A. in English from Texas A&M University, a M.Ed. in Secondary Education from the University of North Texas, and a Ph.D. in Reading and Educational Leadership from Texas Woman’s University. “Karen’s warmth, humor, and passion for working with students, parents, faculty, and staff, combined with her genuine commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging made her a natural choice for Galloway,” said Dr. Calleroz White. Although she officially joined the community in July, Dr. Bradberry is no stranger to Galloway parents, faculty, or students; she had visited several times over the past few years to facilitate community-building and DEI-training sessions. Last summer, in the wake of George Floyd’s death, Dr. Bradberry also worked closely with our counseling team to provide helpful resources for our parents and teachers. Since the beginning of the school year, Dr. Bradberry has implemented a comprehensive DEI program that builds community among all Galloway stakeholders while increasing our levels of cultural competency. She has facilitated several training sessions for faculty and staff; led the Board of Trustees’ annual back-to-school retreat in the first of an ongoing series titled What Every Trustee Needs to Know about Building Equitable & Inclusive School Communities; worked individually


with students, teachers, and grade-level teams; connected with alumni of color to learn more about their experience at Galloway; and continues to work with our Teaching and Learning team on building a culturally Dr. Karen Bradberry responsive and relevant curriculum for all grades. Outside of her work with faculty and students, Dr. Bradberry has enjoyed getting to know the Galloway parent community as well. She was the featured speaker for the first Galloway Families of Color United for Success (FoCUS) meeting of the school year. In October, she launched the Galloway Parents as Partners initiative, an ongoing series of DEI-related conversations and events for the school’s parent population. Dr. Bradberry has also represented Galloway in the community at large. After accepting an invitation to be featured presenters for the Southern Association of Independent Schools Annual Conference (SAIS), she and Dr. Calleroz White facilitated a training session on the elements of a successful Head of School-DEI partnership. She has also served as a panelist for local private school fairs. For more information on Dr. Bradberry’s work at Galloway and to dive deep into recommended DEI resources, we invite you to click here to browse the DEI section of our website.

Galloway Strengthens STEAM Curriculum with Integrated Learning Specialist & Innovation Coordinator Current research around mind-brain education suggests that the integration of arts and technology into the curriculum provides tremendous learning opportunities for our students. Students not only learn better by integrating our curriculum with art and technology, but this integration also instills a love of learning, a hallmark of a Galloway education. At the start of the 2020-21 school year, Peggy Benkenser stepped into a new role as Galloway’s first Integrated Learning Specialist. In addition to integrating art into the school curriculum, Peggy is also strengthening the “A” in STEAM offerings, and she has worked closely with faculty to help them integrate STEAM into their existing curriculum in a variety of ways. From teaching Kindergarten music students the science of sound with water in glass jars to encouraging ninth grade English students to explore common elements of poetry and hip hop, Peggy has helped inspire students and faculty in all levels to embrace their inner artist. Amanda Edwards also moved into a new role at the beginning of the school year, joining the Teaching and Learning team as their Tech Integration and Innovation Coordinator. Amanda is a Google Certified Educator with a Master’s Degree in Digital Teaching and Learning. She has been helping teachers integrate technology into the classroom for nearly a decade. She is passionate about supporting teachers, promoting innovation, and strengthening connections between curriculum and educational technology, and this passion has been critical for the success of Galloway faculty as they tackled the many challenges that come with hyflex teaching.

Galloway Partners through a Pandemic with Horizons Atlanta

UL Microbiology Class Infuses Design Thinking and Biodesign

Founded in 1964 and expanding nationally since 1995, Horizons is a network of high-quality, tuition-free, immersive, academic and enrichment programs for children in underserved communities. Galloway announced its partnership with Horizons in November 2019 with the intent to close the opportunity gap by providing underserved students in north Atlanta access to high-quality academics and enrichment in an engaging summer learning program. Due to the global pandemic, Galloway was unable to host its first summer as a Horizons Atlanta partner on campus. However, the important work the school is doing merely shifted in form. Galloway’s Site Director Bayless Fleming led a team of EL teachers and several volunteers to ensure that students’ out-of-school summer needs are served while honoring public health guidelines. The team started the summer by providing more than 25 Chromebooks for rising first grade students at Scott Elementary, Galloway’s partner school. These Chromebooks are loaded with Lexia Online Learning and various educational apps to facilitate continuous learning over the summer. In lieu of on-campus summer camps, students took four weeks of virtual reading sessions with Dori Herald, Zeke Epsey, and Becky Chamberlain, celebrating the culmination of the summer with an ice cream social! Once a week, Bayless and her team also coordinated food drops for families at Scott Elementary.

Creativity. Innovation. Collaboration. Interdisciplinary Learning. These are the things that come to mind when one hears about the new Upper Learning class Microbiology in Action: Biotechnology that is co-taught by Upper Learning technology and computer science teacher MariaPaola Jimenez and Upper Learning science teacher Elizabeth Sanders. Ms. Jimenez and Ms. Sanders partnered together to create an interdisciplinary class that infuses an understanding of microbiology with design thinking and biodesign. The class aims to help students learn about design thinking, spatial reasoning, and biotechnology, and apply it to solve real-world challenges. For example: the first unit focused on kombucha, a fermented product made by a symbiotic culture of yeast and bacteria. Students cultured their own samples of kombucha, observing the microbes microscopically and the development of the microcellulose biofilm that the bacteria builds at the surface. Students researched the real-world applications of bacterial microcellulose from biomedical (skin grafts, artificial organs, pill casings) and fashion (textiles


Once the school year started, Horizons continued its programming and held events outside of the regular school day such as a socially distant Halloween celebration, a school supply drive, and a LEGO design challenge. Although our partnership had to shift in form this year, Galloway is excited about what this new venture holds as we continue to grow our relationship with Horizons.




and faux leather) to bioplastics, foods, and body care products. Students then used bacterial microcellulose to create product prototypes, which ranged from the decorative (butterfly ornament) to the utilitarian (lampshade) and medical (skin bandages). In the second unit, students learned about the design thinking process with Ms. Jimenez and applied their knowledge to create a mold using 3D design. After 3D printing their molds, students will grow fungi in the molds. After the fungal mycelium fills the space of the mold (taking its shape), it will be removed from the mold, dried, and preserved so it can be used to create materials varying in weight, strength, and flexibility. These can be used in packaging, acoustics, insulation, construction systems, containers, and more. Students in the class emphasized how much they enjoyed studying biodesign and microbiology for their multitude of uses in everyday life. “I like learning about the science,” Jessica Schwartz ’21 shared, “But more importantly, how to apply it to create practical solutions for real-world problems.”






MIDDLE LEARNING ML Students Enhance Campus with Large Format Paintings In Middle and Upper Learning Technical Theatre Teacher Liz Whalen’s Large Format Painting class, seventh and eighth grade students learned technical theater skills such as creating backdrops, planning a set painting, and working with drop cloths. Using these skills, students created large format paintings to enhance the interiors of the Learning Cottages on The Blue. Working in small groups, the students decided on their topic and then researched it using the primary image resources at the Library of Congress. Then, the groups drew small renditions before eventually scaling them to fit the final 5’ x 5’ painting.


For a Spanish class, students painted a llama in the Andean mountains, inspired by Macchu Picchu. For the theater class, the students created a Broadway-themed painting. For an American History class, the students painted images reflective of the history of Civil Rights; they chose to depict the Navajo Code Breakers from WWII, figures evocative of the Japanese internment during WWII, and iconic images from the Civil Rights era, paralleling the Black Lives Matter movement.




EL and ML Students Mask on and Carry on. Not even a pandemic (or a rainy day) could dampen the excitement of our students for this year’s Early Learning Halloween parade! Scots in all levels donned costumes and cheered while our youngest students made their way around the outside of the Gresham and Arnold buildings. Several students in continuous learning joined in virtually by “parading” on Zoom with their teachers holding iPads or by submitting their costumes ahead of time!












The Theatre Company Presents I Can I Will by Head of Community Engagement Gordon Mathis While working with the Alliance Theater and Georgia Film Academy over the summer of 2020, Upper Learning Theatre Teacher Megan Cramer thought about a new approach to drama and all it entails - the rehearsals, performances, and audiences - in the age of social distancing. In collaboration with Middle and Upper Learning Technical Theatre Teacher Liz Whalen and Upper Learning Theatre Assistant and Costumer Misao Cates, The Galloway Theatre Company decided to proceed with a completely virtual production this fall titled I Can I Will. In response to a summer of “social shaking” that involved the Black Lives Matter movement and the polarization of politics against the backdrop of the pandemic, the drama teachers invited Jasmine Waters Page, the education programs coordinator at the National Center for Civil and Human Rights, to work with all participants in the UL theatre program. Equity is a foundational focus for the performing arts teachers equity in response to the social

issues confronting the nation, equity for all students in an unprecedented approach to theatre. They decided to embrace moving beyond theatre as a safe space to theatre as a brave space. Twenty-eight students registered for the fall performance course, nearly a third of whom were learning from home. In order to provide an equitable theater experience for all, the tech theatre students provided tech kits with a green screen and lights for the continuous learning students; everyone who will perform in a scene has this material for home use. All rehearsals were held online, and all participants – students, “techies,” and directors – worked online. For the November performances, students created short pieces based on personal identity in relation to others. The directors divided actors and members of the tech crew into “pods” of seven students, four actors, and three technicians. Each group wrote, rehearsed, and performed a 10-minute vignette about current issues that are important to them. Other guest artists joined the process to help students stretch into these new acting and technical challenges: Lucy Smith, a playwright and actor, helped students explore their new stage, and Jared Mezzocchi taught students shiny new skills in a computer program called Isadora. I Can I Will served as a fitting response to the challenges facing theater, students, and the nation. The theater students grew in their newfound autonomy in writing, applying the theme, and incorporating tech elements into their scenes, and enjoyed collaborating with Galloway’s Music For Media class, who provided original music for the performances. The broadcast of the four 10-minute scenes

was interactive; audience members participated in a poll to determine the outcome of some of the narratives and also asked questions in a live post-production Q&A.

At Galloway, we don’t view education as linear. For 50 years, we’ve been pioneers in experiential learning, empowering our students to take charge of their educational experience and develop an abiding love of learning. We believe that education should go beyond the classroom and prepare students for life beyond our walls. Our students are curious, smart, creative, and independent thinkers who value differences. In our classrooms, students learn more than the core academic subjects; they learn about themselves, who they are, and what role they want to play in making our world a better place. The confidence that they develop through these experiences is a catalyst for personal growth and development for years to come.

We’re not just about school. Here, we are Embracing the Journey of Learning.

Accepting and open-minded




Our priority student outcomes will be achieved by enhancing our work within three strategic themes over the next several years.

Development of the Person

Curriculum Framework

Learning Experiences

The well-being and personal fulfillment of our students is essential to their future success.

The Galloway School has been a leader in experiential learning for more than 50 years.

We fundamentally believe that education must transcend the walls of the classroom.

We are a school community that balances high academic expectations with students’ emotional, social, and physical well-being. Knowing that students learn best through interpersonal connections, we value the importance of teacher-student connections and intentionally cultivate an inclusive community that exposes our students to multiple perspectives and experiences.

Every day, our teachers empower their students to take charge of their learning and pursue hands-on, innovative, and personally interesting pursuits in a way that a traditional education does not always make possible. To ensure consistency and enhance the learning experience, we believe that it’s important to codify our approach.

Our students learn more than just core academic subjects; they learn about themselves, who they are, and what role they want to play in making our world a better place.

By nurturing a culturally competent, inclusive community, The Galloway School will be a haven of safety, support, and connections where our students can flourish.

By establishing a clear scope and sequence of learning, we can not only push our students and teachers to new levels but also share the Galloway approach with students beyond our walls.

By establishing experiential learning frameworks, we will take learning to the next level, ensuring consistent, meaningful student engagement over the course of their time at Galloway.

Embracing the Journey of Learning 26 | WINTER 2021 | THE GALLOWAY MAGAZINE




These outcomes will be achieved by meeting these key objectives:

Development of the Person

Foster student wellness. The current social environment places a great deal of stress on students to conform with unrealistic expectations of physical, social, and academic perfection. We are enhancing counseling and mental health support services to better address our students’ emotional and mental well-being. We will cultivate a student advisory program to help our students engage in self-discovery as they select courses, identify independent study opportunities, and, ultimately, apply to colleges or other post-high school opportunities.

strategic plan

We believe that supporting students academically is only part of our job. To ensure that Galloway is supporting the whole child, we are developing an integrated approach to learning that addresses not only academics but emotional, physical, and social well-being.

Establish a sense of belonging among community members. Our community is a treasure. We are creating meaningful ways for students, faculty, staff, and parents to build relationships and deepen their sense of community. We recognize that not everyone joins the Galloway family at the same time but, regardless of when they join us, we want everyone to feel that they are a part of our community. We are developing systems to welcome all new members of our school community and help them find their place at Galloway and understand what makes us special. We believe that a strong sense of personal responsibility will be invaluable as our students navigate the world beyond the classroom. We are building structures to ensure equitable responses as we help students take accountability for their actions. We are committed to open and transparent communications through intentional dialogue about big issues. We cultivate an inclusive community that ensures that the Galloway experience is relevant to students from diverse backgrounds while also exposing all of our students to multiple perspectives and experiences.


Curriculum Framework

Establish a coherent curricular scope and sequence. The Galloway School has found significant success in promoting individual teacher and student autonomy to direct the learning process. The next level of this work is ensuring that the student learning experience builds upon itself year after year. By establishing a scope and sequence of content for each grade level we can facilitate consistency and collaboration across both subjects and grade levels. Elliott Galloway believed strongly in “meeting students where they are.� We are enhancing our approach to ensure that we are effectively supporting students ready to explore more in-depth or challenging material as well as those who need additional assistance.

Establish a signature approach to teaching and learning. We know that learning at Galloway is unique. We are excited to reflect on our work by identifying guiding principles of instruction that make us special and challenging ourselves to continuously improve upon them. We trust our faculty to make strong decisions about what is best for each classroom and each child. We also recognize that together we are stronger. Galloway is enhancing opportunities for faculty collaboration and working to find time within the school day for our teachers to both learn from and support each other. We are also refining systems to ensure that all faculty are empowered and supported to be the best possible teachers.

Position The Galloway School as a leader in the field.

Learning Experiences

Ensure adherence to schoolwide framework for experiential learning beyond the classroom. Experiential learning opportunities outside the classroom are a cornerstone of a Galloway education. A consistent and intentional framework for these experiences will help students create deeper meaning and linkages across the years. We are developing additional opportunities for service-learning beyond our campus and helping students determine how they can best use their knowledge and unique skills to impact positive change. Real-world learning helps our students become confident in themselves and their abilities. We are creating even more experiential learning opportunities to allow students to apply their knowledge to real-life scenarios. To be successful, we believe our students must be culturally competent community builders. We are creating structures to allow our students to immerse themselves in various cultures and engage with perspectives and experiences that are different from their own.

What's Next? Each objective also contains its own unique action items. While work on some initiatives is already underway, work on others will be tackled throughout four phases over the next five years. For the most recent updates on our ongoing work, please visit our website here.

We believe that what Galloway offers its students is unique. We are committed to documenting and transferring the practices that have made us successful over the past 50 years so that more schools, educators, and students can benefit from this shared knowledge.





Much like most things these days, our biennial gala will look a little different this coming year. While our goal of raising money for financial assistance remains the same, we will be celebrating Elliott’s Evening virtually on April 17 instead of in-person. Times may be challenging, but it’s a good reminder that no matter what, #wescotthis! Look for additional information in the coming months at 30 | WINTER 2021 | THE GALLOWAY MAGAZINE





Dear Alumni, I would like to start by welcoming the Class of 2020 to the Galloway Alumni Association! While I know the end of your senior year was anything but normal, I hope you know that membership in this community is defined by so much more than placing a flower in a vase in front of a crowded gym. It is about the opportunity to share experiences with any number of alumni who have gone before you. To engage with the school in the hopes and with the intention that continued involvement will enhance this community that means so much to us. Plus, the drive-by graduation will be a memory for a lifetime! I myself have taken on a new role within the Alumni Association as well. After serving as class liaison chair and Vice President on the Alumni Council Executive Board, I am thrilled to start my first year as President of the Alumni Council. As a member of the Class of 2008, I am eager to hear about the endless amount of Galloway experiences of alumni in the classes before and after mine . While the cancelation of the 50th Anniversary celebration in March meant I was unable to engage with many of you, if 2020 has taught us anything, it is that we can now engage from anywhere. A council that has historically been composed of alumni living in the Atlanta area can now broaden its reach and hopefully re-engage alumni who still feel deeply connected to this place, but have maybe felt that a geographic barrier keeps them from Galloway. My hope for these next two years is to use these silver linings 2020 gave us, and take advantage of all the virtual opportunities to feel closer as a community (while continuing to social-distance). I hope those of you who have felt that their physical distance from Galloway was a disadvantage to remaining connected will join us for future virtual meetings. This community is not for just those of us in Atlanta, as the Galloway spirit is resilient wherever we may be located. I’m so excited for the chance to engage with as many of you as I can–to share my passion for Galloway, to hear what you have to say, and to be the best representative for this group that I can. Please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Matriculations for the Class of 2020 Though we could not gather as a community to celebrate the 71 members of the Class of 2020, we are so proud of their accomplishments! These students will continue their education at 52 different colleges and universities, located in 21 states, the District of Columbia, Canada, and Scotland!

Although our 50th school year was abruptly cut short, that didn’t stop our alumni from using this


milestone as a chance to give back. To commemorate the big birthday, we created special edition socks to send out to every alum who made a gift of $50 or more to Galloway.

Many alumni remember “behave yourself and try” and “wear shoes” to be the two most important rules they learned here, and we wanted to embrace that as best we could. Although this “50th Sock Campaign” was cut down in its prime, we’re extending it through this 51st year as well. While 51 doesn’t have the same ring to it as 50, as you can see, the socks are just as comfy no matter the year. Thank you to all our alumni who contributed!

Dear Galloway Community, As I reflect on a 50th year that took twists and turns none of us could have imagined, I am clear that one constant prevailed– the Galloway community shows up for one another. It is thanks to your tremendous support that Galloway met the unthinkable from a position of strengthand was able to navigate this year with flexibility, offering options to its families, while remaining mission focused. Your dedication is worthy of celebration.

Our parent giving campaign kicked off the 2019-2020 school year, with the Annual Giving “blitz” raising $891,000 from 96% of parents in just 5 weeks. I give my personal thanks to the 44 parent volunteers, mentioned by name in the following Annual Report, who made this happen! Thanks to the generous contributions from Galloway alumni, faculty and staff, grandparents, alumni parents, trustees and friends, you achieved an Annual Giving total of $950,035 amid a global pandemic. Additionally, you contributed $10,000 in COVID-19 relief funds for Galloway families affected by the crisis.

GIVING Senior Gift 2020

The Senior Retreat for the Class of 2020 was held right before school shut down in March.They had the opportunity to brainstorm what their gift to the school was going to be in our 50th year, and came up with some great ideas, however one rose above the rest. While the original “Galloway School� sign on the front lawn was taken down after the years wore heavily on it, the Class of 2020 decided to use their money to replace the sign and give it an update. Now, the formerly worn down sign is easily visible from Chastain Park Avenue, serving as a great reminder that, while a lot has changed around the school, there are plenty of memories worth preserving. A very special thank you to our Senior Gift Committee 2020, who took time at the end of a very different senior year to rally their classmates together and ensure they could leave something extremely meaningful behind.

Think of Galloway’s endowment as our school’s savings account. Over the years, donors have established endowed funds through generous gifts in support of professional development, financial assistance, and wellness programs. A portion of the income from the endowment is spent annually, and a portion is put back into the fund to ensure growth. Today Galloway’s endowment stands at more than $20 million. Our Board of Trustees carefully oversees the management of these funds to meet current operational needs as well as long-term priorities. Continued endowment growth is key to satisfying the school’s future needs. Please contact the Development Office to learn more about endowment giving.
