Welcome to Galion Primary School!


Welcome Back 2017-2018

It is with great excitement and enthusiasm that we move into a new year here at Galion Primary! I am honored to work alongside an extremely dedicated staff and an amazing community to provide the best possible education for our students.

I have 19 years of experience in education.  I taught third and fourth grade for 15 years, and I have been an Elementary Principal for the past 4 years.  I received my Bachelor of Science in Education from The University of Michigan, and have a Masters of Education and an Administrative License from Ashland University. My husband, Dave, and I have been married for 12 years and have two active boys, Cooper, age 9, and Klete, age 5.

As the principal, my goal is to provide the leadership that will create a safe and nurturing learning environment for all stakeholders. By utilizing data, research based teaching practices, and assessments, we will continue to build positive and collaborative relationships to promote lifelong learners.  I strongly believe in taking the time to know students individually in order to help them reach their true potential.

Through a close partnership with parents, staff members, and the community and a commitment to doing “whatever it takes,” I am confident that the students at Galion Primary will achieve excellence! Together, we will ensure that we “Believe, Achieve, Succeed.”  I am honored and proud to serve the students and families of Galion Primary.! If there is anything I can assist you with, or if you have questions or concerns, please feel free to call the office at 419-468-4010 or email me at watters.melisa@galionschools.org.  I wish you a terrific upcoming school year!

Best Regards,

Melisa Watters
Galion Primary Principal
