A Busy, Four-Day Week

As you can see from the information below, this is a busy time around Gateway. Please pay close attention to the fact that we are out of school tomorrow and that Monday is the last day to get early re-enrollment benefits.

This week, our elementary students kicked off their March for Reading by dressing up in various Dr. Seuss themes each day. Each class has a goal to read 100 books this month and they are all off to great starts. Keep up the good work!

I'm sure I'll see many of you at the Upward Soccer evaluations this weekend. It's not to late to get your students, ages 4-6th grade, signed up for a great soccer season at Gateway Church. There is more information below.


Enjoy this weekend and have a wonderful time with your family!
