Happy October Gator Parents and Community Supporters!
It is so nice to begin yet another wonderful school year! This year feels more “normal” to our school family than we have had the luxury of experiencing over the past few years, and we are so grateful! It is often said that November is the traditional month to reflect and celebrate gratitude for friends, family and special supporters who spend each year giving of their time, resources and constant positivity to make Gateway such a special place for every single person who enters the building. However this wave of thankfulness and gratitude swept over Gateway in August this year!
This “normal” feeling was such a humbling experience for our staff, one that quite frankly we may have taken for granted in years past. We realized very quickly that our community continued to rally around us throughout the difficult years and now we have the opportunity to get out into the community and give back! We can show our appreciation for all of the support that we have received, and continue to receive. We now have volunteers IN our building, parents and special friends joining us for lunch, a fall festival!!! A FALL FESTIVALLLLLL!!!!!! Grandparents and Special Friends Luncheon, in person PTA meetings! The list goes on and on! So to celebrate, we decided to launch “The Great Gratitude Challenge of 2022!” I have included a link below, however please know that this is just the beginning! Our students and staff are committed to making this an ongoing initiative to reconnecting, and rebuilding the relationships that are so important to us. What a privilege it is to live in our Travelers Rest Community and to be surrounded by family, business and community support! On behalf of our entire Gator family to all of you, WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!
All the best,
Mrs. Bingham, Assistant Principal
From the Assistant Principal, Mrs. Bingham
Thank you all for a wonderful beginning of a school year. Our students and teachers have been relentless in doing their best as they learn together. Of course, this is all possible due to your support both at home and school. We had a great turn out at our Volunteer training are super excited to have Gator Dads/Moms get involved at our school.
I wanted to quickly remind you that attendance and promptness to school matter in your child’s education. Teachers start their instruction at 7:45, and those precious morning minutes help the children start their day off right. We appreciate your help in making sure the children are at school and on time every day. Below is a quick chart showing you how just being a few minutes late to school per day will impact your child’s school year.
