Applications are now being accepted for the 2018 Madeline Solomon Galena Education Association Scholarship. A scholarship will be awarded to a graduating senior from each of the GCSD's three components: GILA, SHS and IDEA.  Each award is for $250.  The deadline to apply is May 1st, 2018.  This scholarship is to honor the memory of Madeline Solomon, a strong elder and organizer of the GEA who taught in Galena, and emphasized the importance of education for our children.  Please send applications to Keilah Havener, GEA Scholarship Committee, PO Box 261, Galena AK, 99741, or submit them to her at SHS.

Here is an Edgar Nollner Health Center tip: It is important to plan ahead when ordering medication refills and renewals.  Chronic medications require a visit with your health care provider before they can be renewed, so plan an appointment when you see that sticker on your bottle that says, “zero refills.”  It can take up to two weeks for medication to arrive from out of town and most medications work better when taken consistently, so call your pharmacy for a refill before you actually run out.  The ENHC hopes this tip helps you get the most out of your health care. (4/13)

 

The 2018 Galena City School District Activities Fair will take place at the SHS Gym beginning at 6pm on Tuesday, April 24th.  There will be meals for sale (menu to be announced later). Everyone is welcome to celebrate the accomplishments of the sports teams, clubs, and staff members.
