1 days 10 hours ago | | | Email

The Galion Board of Education held its monthly meeting on April 17. It first heard a presentation from sixth grader Garrett Murphy.Murphy, who is a member of Boy Scout Troop 304, explained that $2,000 has been invested in his Eagle Scout project to build a shelter house on the school campus. He will now begin to raise funds for an additional $7,000. One idea he has is to hold a “dress down day” at school, in which students who want to wear casual clothes must pay.Board members liked the idea and suggested offering it to teachers and staff as well, but it will need final approval from the building principals.
