Top Shoe Picks From Under Armour for the Upcoming School Year: Back to School in Galion

School uniforms don't offer a lot of room for style or for kids to express their personality, so it's through accessories like backpacks and school shoes that children can add personal touches to what they wear when it's time to go back to school in Galion.
Galionite is honored to partner with Under Armour to bring you this post about back-to-school shoes that add some panache to uniforms for going back-to-school in Galion. 
Shoes may be the last thing your kids put on before they go out the door, but they are the most important part of their outfit. Adding style, comfort and personality into their back to school gear, here are three of our top shoe picks for the upcoming school year.

Top 3 Backpacks for Back to School From eBags

I've posted several Galion back-to-school posts recently, and I don't want to leave out backpacks. After all, kids end up with a LOT of school supplies to carry to and from school, and a quality, well-made backpack lasts longer.

Galionite is honored to partner with eBags to bring you this post about their three most popular backpack styles.

When it comes to back to school gear, the backpack reigns supreme. With so many options and styles, it can be hard to find the best bag out there for your children. From old favorites to new designs, here are our top three backpacks for this year.

JanSport Big Student Backpack

One of eBag’s best-selling student backpacks, the JanSport Big Student Backpack comes in six different colors and patterns. It is made from durable polyester fabric and features a large shape with multiple pockets for storage, a fully padded back panel, and S-curved shoulder straps that make it ultra-comfortable to carry.

Detailed with a front gear pocket with an audio electronics organizer, this backpack includes two spacious main compartments to hold your laptop, books, folders, and other bulky items as well as a side water bottle pocket and a stash pocket on the front to hold small accessories. It is perfect for high school and college students!

Available in three fun patterns, Hanna Andersson’s heavy-duty packs are built to organize and carry everything kids need. The lightweight-yet-rugged packs that are crafted for kids’ comfort, featuring ergonomic straps are shaped to fit the shoulder better.

After-School Activewear Styles for the Upcoming School Year

Whether your youngster needs gym clothes or sweats to wear for after-school activities in Galion, some of these designs from Macy's are worth checking out. They're on sale right now so you can save some cash while getting good-quality garments, and in addition to the sale prices, you don't have to waste your gas or time going to the store to get them.

Galionite is honored to partner with Macy's to bring you this write-up on gym clothes and activewear specials.

From gym class to after-school sports, there are plenty of reasons your kids need new athletic wear this back-to-school season. Here are a few top picks from Macy’s and Lands’ End to keep your kids outfitted in activewear this season.

2-Pc. Cotton T-Shirt & Shorts Set

Show your American spirit with this two-piece t-shirt and shorts set from Champion, which features a graphic-print t-shirt and pull-on shorts. It’s a classic combo for sports or play activities.

Zip-front Sweatshirt

A gym class staple, the Lands’ End Zip-front Sweatshirt is prewashed to maximize softness, minimizes shrinkage and feel like an old favorite right from the start. This version has been redesigned for girls – sides are slight shaped for a less boxy, more feminine fit. A smooth jersey lining encourages them to wear their hood (when needed) by eliminating static and preventing hair from standing on end.

Colorblocked Jacket, Hoodie, T-Shirt, Shorts & Jogger Pants

Create a cool active look for boys with this mix-and-match collection from Ideology featuring a jacket, shirts, shorts and jogger pants in an array of color-blocked, graphic and printed designs.

How Far Is Galion From... ?

While I was researching ideas for new posts here on Galionite, the distance from Galion to other places was one common theme I found in the things people search for online. So, I'm going to give you a few of the main queries along with distance to some popular spots around the country.

How Far Is Galion From Columbus, Cincinnati, and Cleveland, Ohio?

While Galion has a few great things going for it, sometimes people just need to get out of town. When you want to travel within the state of Ohio, travel distance to these big Ohio Cities gives you an idea of how much time to leave in your schedule.
  • Distance from Galion to Columbus: Galion is 59 miles from Columbus, and it takes around an hour to an hour and a half to get there, depending on which part of Columbus you're going to when you leave Galion. 
  • Distance from Galion to Cincinnati: Galion is 165 miles from Cincinnati and it takes about 3 hours to reach the edge of Cincinnati depending on how the traffic is moving after you leave Galion.
  • Distance From Galion to Cleveland: Galion is 96 miles from Cleveland, and it takes about two hours to make the drive to  Cleveland from Galion if the traffic is light.

How Far Is Galion From New York City, Chicago, and Washington DC?

When you want to head to the upper right section of the country, these distances from Galion to New York, Chicago, and DC can help you plan drive time.
  • Distance from Galion to New York City: Galion is 513 miles from New York City, and if you want to drive it, leave about 10.5 hours in your schedule to do that.
  • Distance from Galion to Chicago: Galion is 334 miles away from Chicago, so the drive between the cities takes about 6.5 hours. 
  • Distance from Galion to Washington DC: Galion is 430 miles from DC, and the drive takes a touch over 8.5 hours if the traffic is running fast.

How Far Is Galion From Phoenix AZ, Dallas TX, and Boulder CO?

Thinking of heading out West when you leave Galion? These are the distances from Galion to Phoenix, Dallas, and Boulder to get you started.
  • Distance from Galion to Phoenix: Galion is 1,929 miles from Phoenix, and it's a popular place for people leaving this northern climate to retire, so if you're heading out to hunt for homes for sale in Phoenix AZ, you need to leave one full day plus nine hours in your itinerary to get there - and that's if traffic is running fast and you don't need to stop for sleep, food, or just to stretch.  
  • Distance from Galion to Dallas: Galion is 1,098 miles from Dallas, and the drive - if you can do it straight through - takes right around 19.5 hours.
  • Distance from Galion to Boulder: Galion is 1,335 miles from Boulder, and the drive takes about 23 hours. 

My research tools don't tell me why so many people are looking for information on how far away other cities are, but whatever the reason, those are the answers to a few of the more highly searched cities.

Whether you're dreaming of escaping small-town life for good or planning a fun vacation with your crew, knowing how far it is to other cities can help you plan and reach your goals.

(If I miss anywhere, just leave a note in the comments and I'll get it added right away.)

While the official school supplies lists don't appear to be available yet from Galion Schools 

Here is a link to the school supplies and school fees list from Galion City Schools: Click here to see the list.

There are some things you pretty well know your kids are going to need, like notebooks, pencils, and erasers to name a few things.

There are a handful of places in town where you can go to get those things for back-to-school, including:

  • Dollar Tree: Dollar Tree is great for buying singles or bulk quantities of just about anything your kids may need for school. 
  • Drug Mart: Drug Mart always gets in a nice selection of school and office supplies, and offers some nice deals on them, too,  if you watch the sale ads.
  • Rite Aid: Like Drug Mart, Rite Aid carries a handy selection of school and office supplies.
  • Goodwill: This one may surprise some people, but Goodwill (also known to many as the "social hub of Galion") often has a selection of school supplies that include things like notebooks, folders, and well, the offerings change from day to day. 
  • Dollar General: As general merchandise stores go in Galion, Dollar General carries a wide selection of school supplies and office supplies that students can use for craft projects and learning.

Why It's a Good Idea to Shop Early for Back-to-School in Galion

It may seem a little too soon to be shopping for back to school supplies for your Galion student, but shopping early means you have extra chances to save some of your hard-earned money.

Shoppers have reported saving huge amounts of money by preparing a list of school supplies they know the children will be needing and picking them months in advance when they find them on sale.

Thanks for reading, and I hope your summer is going great!

Ready for Back-to-School Shopping?

While it feels way too soon to be thinking about Back-to-School shopping, the start of the new school year is just around the corner, and Land's End is offering some really nice deals on good-quality school uniforms right now.

Galionite is honored to partner with this well-known company to bring you this short review of school uniform sale prices you can take advantage of via online shopping.

Get Ready for Back-to-School in Galion

With uniforms becoming more and more the norm at public schools, it’s no surprise that preppy styles can be found throughout back-to-school wardrobes. But, preppy doesn’t have to be stuffy, and uniforms don’t have to be uncomfortable. Here are some of our favorite preppy pieces from Macy’s and Lands’ End.

Girls Uniform Plaid Jumper

(I can't remember if plaid jumpers are allowed in the dress code for Galion schools, but this is image was provided by the company as one of their most popular styles in school uniforms.)

Available in seven different plaid prints, this Girls Uniform Plaid Jumper doesn’t cling like so many jumpers do. That’s because it has a smooth, taffeta-lined bodice that won't catch on clothes worn underneath. There's also neat edge stitching at the armholes and neckline to keep the lining in place and an invisible back zipper.

Boys Iron Knee Pants

The building block of any school uniform, these chinos from Lands’ End are reinforced with Iron Knees for incredible durability where he needs it most. They feature an elastic waist and easy-care blended cotton/polyester fabric.

Tommy Hilfiger Boys Preppy Gingham Plaid Tie

Tommy Hilfiger adds vibrant color to his formal look with this classic gingham necktie. At an everyday value price of $14.98, this tie will have your boys looking sharp without breaking the bank.
