Our parent organization supports the school through various fundraising events, and regularly organizes enjoyable and informative gatherings for our children and families. The partnership that exists between our Parent Association and school contributes to a strong sense of community at Gateway.
The Gateway Parent Association offers opportunities for parents to participate in the early education of their children through volunteering. There are a variety of ways you can participate. Examples of volunteer opportunities include reading to your child’s small group, organizing the library, volunteering for special events, being a morning greeter, and going on a field trip. Volunteering at Gateway is a rewarding way to get to share the Gateway experience with your kids.
Throughout the year, our Parent Association organizes special events for Gateway children and families. Family events include Gateway Fun Day, outings to professional sports games, Disney On Ice, and our end-of-the-year family picnic. Kids-only events include our Walk-a-Thon and a pajama party. These events bring our community together in friendship and fun.
One of the kids’ favorite Parent Association programs is Pizza Lunch. One day a week, children who are staying for lunch have the option of having pizza for lunch. For a nominal fee, the Parent Association provides pizza, fruit and cookies. Our kids love the special menu, and parents enjoy a day off from packing lunch.
