Family Events & Gage Happenings
We welcomed back our 2019-2020 students and families at Meet the Teacher Night and shared dinner on a beautiful night!
First Week Highlights
Gator LEAD Learners Student Leadership Group
They spent two days in August community building and developing leadership skills. They traveled to Eagle Bluff Learning Center in Lanesboro where they participated in the high ropes course.
Some of our members greeted RPS staff on their first day back to school kick-off at John Marshall.
We are very excited about the great ways this group will contribute to our school community!

Through an Olmsted County Public Health SHIP grant, we were able to purchase new food pantry cabinetry.
Our partnership with Channel One helps keep it stocked for families.
Some of the other furnishings were purchased with the support of the Gage PTO.
United Way of Olmsted County, Hy Vee and various donors helped us provide backpacks and schools supplies for our students at Meet the Teacher night.
Thank you to our valued partners!
