Nearly 700 parents, current and past trustees, staff members, alumni and alumni parents attended the event to welcome the Calleroz Whites and enjoy a beautiful evening under the stars with great food, drink and — in true Scot style — bagpipe music. Guests to this adult-only event also gave a nod to the new head’s home state with a tasting of his favorite Kentucky bourbon. In the job for a little more than a month, Calleroz White addressed many in the crowd for the first time. “I have been overwhelmed by what a special place Galloway is,” he said. “When I think about your generosity and willingness to trust your children to us for the work we do — none of that is lost on me. I am so excited to be here. I can’t tell you how long I have been Drs. James and Mistalene Calleroz White are welcomed by Board Chair Debra Sydnor and her husband, Marc Sydnor.

Farewell TO THREE LEGENDS GALLOWAY BIDS

McCandless began teaching computer science, geometry and advanced biology when he arrived at Galloway in 1981. He later stepped up to become the UL principal and left behind a legacy known as the “McCandless electives” — semesters of psychology, anthropology and philosophy, which continue to spark new passions decades after their inception. Seven years later, missing the relationships he formed with students and teachers, he stepped down from the role of principal in 1992 and has taught chemistry as well as his electives ever since. The culture of Galloway and the level of mutual respect and kindness are the things McCandless will remember most fondly about the community. The genuine relationships between students and teachers he values so much often continue long after students leave Galloway. He stays in touch with a number of former students and has even officiated at two weddings for former advisees of his. Thanks to his engaging science classes, performances with the Jug Band, leadership of excursions and outdoor trips along with his famous stories, generations of Galloway graduates will remember

After 29 years teaching kindergarten, Pre-K and 3-year-old classes, Phillips still holds such warm memories of Elliott Galloway and of each student who has passed through her classroom. She finds the maturity and respect Galloway students exhibit from a young age distinguishes them later in life. The freedom and trust she places in her students help to cultivate this personal responsibility.

Each day is unique, an expression of the many personalities found among her students. She believes students of that age are especially rewarding to teach, as they are learning to read and interact with the world, and everything is new to them. The student-centered, progressive culture of Galloway has sustained her enthusiasm for teaching year after year, as have the relationships she has formed with both her fellow EL teachers and her students. Lawsky points to Carol Hubbard, with whom she shared a classroom for years, as having had a significant impact on her teaching philosophy and practice. And “lifers” of all grade levels remember Lawksy’s classes fondly, most often for her immersive, engaging lessons and appreciation for animals.

FEATURE STORY

Pushing the Limits with

Extreme Sports by Charlie Pike ’18

How well do you know the person sitting next to you at those Plugged-IN Parents meetings? What about the classmates you graduated with a few years ago? At Galloway, we pride ourselves on being a transparent, inclusive community, but just like the stars that comprise the constellations in the night sky, each of us shines bright in our own way. Our individuality transcends classrooms, meetings and conferences, often in ways unbeknown to our peers. For a handful of Galloway parents and alumni, that uniqueness is expressed in the realm of extreme sports. Whether it be trekking through unmarked territory in the dead of night, racing street cars down Moreland Avenue, flying high on the trapeze, scaling frozen waterfalls or dirt-biking down mountain trails, they spend their free time following intense passions.

Here are their stories.

GAME DESIGN CLASS O When MariaPaola Jimenez came to Galloway in August 2016, she probably didn’t think she would end up being a CEO of a company. But that’s how she sees her role in Advanced Game Production, a year-long class in Upper Learning. With the class in its third year, Jimenez, the UL technology teacher, guides her students as they replicate a real-world game development studio. “Last year, we created everything from scratch to produce a professional video game,” said Ms. Jimenez. “We were not able to launch it, but we beta-tested it, and it works. People can play it. It was very satisfying seeing what the group accomplished. This year we want to move forward with it. I’m a little afraid of what that means,” she admitted, laughing. “But, it’s super exciting.” Just as they would do in a company setting, the class operated

Not all great teachers are great artists. But great teaching and great artistry can be a powerful combination, however. “Teaching artists” are artists who are active in their discipline and also practice the art of teaching in a class. When the teaching artists meld practical skills in their discipline with pedagogical skills, students enjoy a creative and more-engaging learning experience. All of Galloway’s arts instructors are teaching artists who actively create work in their discipline while also sharing their knowledge in the classroom. Here’s a look at four of these multi-talented individuals and their views on how their life as an artist impacts students in the classroom.

In Memoriam It is with great sadness that The Galloway School acknowledges the loss of three alumni during the 2017-18 school year. We extend our sincere condolences to their family and friends. Jason Williams ’90 Erin Berman Kellerman ’96 Chris Pierce ’13 Please note:This list includes updates reported to us by family members, newspapers and other sources.The information reported above reflects the period during which The Galloway School received and processed this information, not necessarily the dates individuals passed away.

Beth Farokhi joined the community of The Galloway School in 1983, when her older son, Amir, started in Early Learning. She was an active parent for fifteen years until 1998, when her younger son, Arman, graduated. During those years she served as the president of the Parents’ Association (1988 – 89), attended countless athletic games, and immersed herself in her sons’ academic progress. Dr. Farokhi returned to active involvement in Galloway as head of school from 2010 to 2012. In that role she secured the placement of the original Gresham Building on the National Register of Historic Places. She brought numerous speakers to campus to inspire students, parents, and teachers; among them were Representative John Lewis and President Jimmy Carter. Beth was passionate about all facets of education, especially the equitable treatment of all students in a classroom, boys and girls alike. She believed strongly that school should be safe for students, teachers, and staff, so she required all employees to learn CPR and also required all employees to wear nameplates, so anyone could tell at a glance who belonged on campus. Beth Farokhi knew Elliott Galloway personally. She deliberately sought to preserve his legacy of celebrating the potential of each student. She respected every member of the Galloway community, responding to each person with honesty and integrity. She herself was a life-long learner. In 2013 the members of the Upper Learning faculty created an award given at the annual honors assembly in Dr. Beth Farokhi’s name “in recognition of her serious commitment to the education and empowerment of young people, deep awareness of global responsibility, and an active understanding of Elliott Galloway’s philosophical legacy. “ The entire Galloway School community is appreciative of the impact and legacy left by Dr. Beth Farokhi.

Tartan Backers Challenge: Warren Road Field Improvements Inspired by a challenge grant from a generous donor and the Tartan Backers, Galloway Athletics was able to move forward with exciting Warren Road Field improvements this summer. Thanks to the energy and support of the Tartan Backers and Galloway’s generous softball and baseball families, upgrades included an irrigation system, grading, and new sod, along with a fund to cover the cost of annual field conversion for baseball use. The renovations vastly enhanced the field for softball, and with the ability to add turf to the infield each spring, the site now meets Georgia High School Association’s regulations for varsity baseball games. Thank you for pitching in and meeting the Tartan Backers Challenge. You have helped bring the Scots home!

GIVING Senior Gift

The Galloway School is grateful for a special gift given by the Class of 2018. For their class gift, a committee considered several options, but they chose to donate a solar-powered water fountain in memory of Wyatt Pasley that will be placed in the courtyard.Wyatt taught many students in the Class of 2018 and shared his love of the outdoors with all of us. Thanks to the Class of 2018, the Senior Gift Committee (pictured), and to Samantha Scalise ’18 for her leadership, the new fountain will be installed this fall. Congratulations to the Class of 2018!

About Endowment Giving 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 aid 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. In 2001, our endowment was $1.5 million. Today it 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. Today’s students benefit from the endowment gifts of previous generations. Tomorrow’s Galloway will be sustained by your endowment gifts today.

GIVING Grandparent Giving

Grandparents are a valuable part of the Galloway community. Contributing more than $75,000 to the 2017-2018 Annual Giving campaign, the success of our fundraising efforts would not be possible without them. In addition to gifts, a large number of enthusiastic Early Learning Grandparents spent time with their grandchildren during Grandparents and Special Friends Day for kindergarten and fourth grade students.This annual tradition takes place in April. We also enjoy being with grandparents all year long at musical and theatrical performances, athletic competitions, moving up ceremonies, and commencement! We are grateful to Galloway grandparents for their active involvement and gifts to our school – what a wonderful way to honor their grandchildren!
