The First annual Breakfast With Santa Event:

“What a kid has to do to get a few presents from Santa these days!”  Karalyn Convey visits with Santa at Gateway’s first annual “Breakfast With Santa” event in December.  Official elves from the North Pole were on hand to serve breakfast, help good little boys and girls create unique arts and crafts projects, decorate gift bags to fill and explore the Secret Santa Workshop where they could do their very own holiday shopping.  The workshop was a huge success and everyone went home with full bellies and overflowing bags.  Proceeds from this event benefit Gateway’s Renaissance program, which encourages students to be academically successful and to get involved in extra-curricular activities.

National Honor Society officers for the 2010/2011 school year are:
(l-r):
Zach Royal, Kersten Spissell, Karin Krause, Sara Jolly, Carly Kramer and Megan McBride.




National Honor Society Criteria

    Pursuant to school board policy, a description of the National Honor Society selection procedure must be published annually and made available to all students and parents of the school.  This selection procedure has been determined by the faculty members involved in making the selections, the NHS chapter advisor, and the school principal.  The procedure is approved by the Board of Education and is consistent with rules and regulations of the national organization of the NHS.

     Membership in the local chapter is an honor bestowed upon a student.  Selection for membership is by a faculty council and is based on the student’s outstanding scholarship, character, leadership and service:

 

  • To be eligible for membership, the applicant must be a member of the junior or senior class;
  • Candidates must have been in attendance at the school for one semester;
  • Candidates must have a cumulative scholastic average of at least 88 percent;
  • Candidates are then evaluated on the basis of service, leadership and character;
  • A list of all eligible juniors and seniors based on the academic criteria above is provided to faculty;
  • Simultaneously, students who are academically eligible are notified and told that for further consideration for selection to the NHS chapter, they must complete and submit a student survey from, which allows them to delineate their service, leadership, and character;
  • Faculty members complete separate forms for candidates on which they comment upon each candidate’s leadership, service, and character to the best of their knowledge;
  • Once all data is gathered, the members of the faculty council for selection meet to review each candidate and to make the actual selection; and
  • All circumstances are reviewed when considering each student.  Those receiving a majority vote of the faculty council are chosen for induction.

     This program is accessible through any computer having Internet connection at www.collegeboard.com.


     The following are examples of career, college search and financial aid websites on the Internet:


  • www.act.org:  ACT test and college search options;
  • www.collegeboard.org:  Interest questionnaire and career title descriptions; SAT registration;
  • rileyguide.com:  Job search site listing, resume writing information, job interview preperation;

Guidance Notes:

     All students who request official transcripts to be sent to any colleges, scholarships, summer programs, etc. will be asked to complete a transcript request form in order to document where and when transcripts are sent.  Students and their parents will be required to sign the form authorizing transcripts to be sent.  Seniors will receive this form in early September in their English classes.  This form can currently be found on the guidance department website at www.gatewayhs.com/pages/guidance.html.

Graduates will also have to complete a transcript release form.

Connect With Your Child’s School Guidance Counselor

     Please ensure that your child has a successful school year by connecting with his/her appointed school guidance counselor.  Gateway’s skilled counselors are trained to assist you in all student needs, including parental/social issues, academics and career development.  We encourage you to reach out to your counselor to discuss these areas as well as any concerns you may have.  Established, regular communication between the school and the home is a valuable connection for the benefit of the student.  As a parent, you have essential information that might further assist counselors in meeting the needs of your student.  By contacting your child’s counselor at least three times a year, you can help to ensure a positive school experience.  If your child is having problems at school, his/her counselor will discuss resources available within the school as well as in the community.
      Counselors can be reached via telephone or email, or by scheduling a meeting.  Gateway’s guidance counselors look forward to hearing from you at any time.  Please allow them to continue to be a part of your child’s Gateway career.

If Your Child Is Having Academic Difficulty

  • Contact the teacher or guidance counselor.  Discuss the problem and ask about referring your child to the Intervention and Referral Service (I&RS)
  • The I&RS is a problem-solving group made up of teachers, administrators, guidance counselors and child study team personnel.  This process will result in specific suggestions to assist your child in school.  Teachers and parents can refer a student to I&RS if they are experiencing significant problems in school.
  • One possible outcome of I&RS is a referral to the child study team.  This may occur if there is a concern that an educational disability is hindering a student’s school success.
  • If your child is referred to the child study team, you will receive a written invitation to attend a meeting to determine whether an evaluation will be conducted, as well as to outline your parental rights in this process.
  • If an evaluation is warranted and parental permission is granted, an evaluation plan is developed to determine if your child is eligible to receive special education services.

Career Week For Students – Volunteers Needed

     Gateway is investigating implementing a career week.  We are developing a database of potential speakers for our program.  Please ask your family members/friends if they would be interested and available to come in to Gateway next year to speak about their careers.  It would be an organized event and the speakers will be given talking points prior to the event.
     If you know of someone who would like to volunteer for this event, please respond to Mrs. Melissa Eckstein at Gateway Regional High School either by email (meckstein@gatewayhs.com), regular mail (775 Tanyard Road, Woodbury Hts, NJ 08096) or telephone (848-8200 ext. 228) with the following information.:

  • Family Member Name
  • Gateway Student’s Name
  • Street Address
  • City, State, Zip
  • Cell Telephone Number
  • Home Telephone Number
  • Email Address
  • Place of Employment
  • Career

How To Raise SAT/ACT Scores
Research studies on the best ways to raise SAT/ACT scores suggest the following:

  • There is no substitute for preparation.  That means students need to take challenging courses, read extensively from a variety of materials, learn new subjects and make a conscious effort to learn new vocabulary;
  • Test practice is the best way to improve SAT and ACT scores.  Previous forms of the test should be available in local libraries or visit www.testprep.com on the Internet.  Students need to take the tests in the time allowed, identify weaknesses, and review weak areas;
  • www.collegeboard.com offers free online practice tests and SAT questions of the day emailed to you;
  • Students do not need to take expensive coaching services to improve scores.  Parents need to be aware that not all methods of test preparation are worth the time and money they require;
  • Parents and students should be skeptical of any class, tutor, or book that promises dramatic improvement.

 

Don’t forget, the ACT is another excellent test option for college.

Ever wonder what's going on in the classrooms throughout our school? Click here to see what the Music, Science, and History Departments have been doing...


Science Department

Under the guidance of physics teacher, Mr. Brian Dericks, Gateway students and alumni members launch pumpkins at distances of over 100 feet from the 17 foot trebuchet they designed.   Looking closely at the top of the picture you can see the pumpkin flying in mid-air.



Here's a video of the Trebuchet in action.





Students (front to back) Austin Sanders, Brandon Heisler, Khrisantony Figueroa and (far right) Tyler Hall in Mr. Harris’ science classes try their hand at creating 3D art images with special paint designed to illuminate under unique lighting conditions.

After creating their 3D pictures, students (l-r) Rebecca Keck, Austin Sanders and Tyler Hall view them under ultra-violet lighting to observe how the image appears to just lift off the page and float out at you. This brought home the idea of how 3D  movies are made

Gateway Snowtographs

Wishing for snow, anyone? Before Mother Nature gave us the real thing, students (l-r) Kelci Flynn, Sean O’Brien and Kelsey Rinear in Mr. Derick’s physics classes had fun making and playing in their own home-made snow

Additional culprits from Mr. Dericks classes in the snow-making scene are (l-r) Dana Fink, Kelci Flynn, Taylor Hughes, Richard Struss (kneeling), Jacob Taylor, Christine Jantz, Taylor Passero, Tim Tomasetti, Jess Leahy, Connor Moran, Kevin Phelps, Katherine Domico, Michael Hall, Justin Kususky, and Jamie Lugiano. Hmmmmmmmmmm, now if they could only figure out a way to bring back the sunshine, dry skies and warm spring days that we miss so much…

Music Department

Gateway’s middle school music students performed a warm and wonderful holiday concert, impressing the packed auditorium with a high level of talent on Thursday, December 10th. The following day they presented a matinee performance to the fifth and sixth grade elementary school students from our sending districts, inspiring especially the sixth grader’s who are eagerly looking forward to joining Gateway’s magical music department next year.

Club News
Our students loved to be involved in clubs. Click here to see what the some of our clubs are doing this year...

Latin Club News

     The Gateway Latin Club has participated in a full schedule of events this year.  In November, club members attended the highly competitive Venus de Volleyball NJJCL (New Jersey Junior Classical League) Tournament at Eastern Regional High School and, while not winning the trophy, had an awesome time. Service activities included helping distribute energy-saving light bulbs for Project Porchlight and collecting used cell phones for the state NJJCL Cell Phones for Soldiers project. A special project is being planned to raise funds for the NJJCL March for Soldiers drive, which will raise funds to assist children whose parents have been injured or killed overseas. This year’s new officers are ready to meet the challenge by working hard on another successful year of club activities.
     Latin students again did their best to keep the world healthy by holding a sale of gift-boxed citrus fruit as holiday presents.  At their Saturnalia party, students decorated with Roman-inspired ornaments, welcomed Saturn Claus, and raised funds for the NHS (National Honor Society) food drive with a Rent-A-Roman auction. The group enjoyed joining other Gateway language clubs for ice-skating at the Blue Cross River Rink on a cold January evening. Along academic lines, Certamen (Latin Bowl) teams have been practicing for the March competition held at Princeton University, and all Latin students will take the National Latin Exam in March.
     The club is now planning for their annual game night to raise funds for Emmanuel Cancer, the inter-Latin-class Olympic Games, the spring Roman banquet, and a Saturday trip to New York City for sight-seeing and a Broadway show. The highlight of the year, however, will be the annual NJJCL State Convention hosted by Christian Brothers Academy on April 30th. At the convention, students will compete in various graphic arts, creative arts, academic and athletic contests. Gateway Latin students thus have numerous opportunities to showcase their individual talents in many varieties of competition. This year’s officers have done an outstanding job of keeping the classics alive and vibrant at Gateway.

    The German Club began the first semester with the election of officers and the annual bagel sale for Gator Day. Officers include Kelsey Rinear, President; Alex Judson, Vice President; Keith Cornish, Treasurer and Mitch Hewitt, Secretary.  In between Gator Day and an ice-skating event with the other World Language Clubs came the annual Oktoberfest at Collingswood High School, the first World Language Soccer Tournament, an Advent calendar sale and the German Club holiday party, hosted for the third consecutive year by Mr. and Mrs. John Sooy of Wenonah.
Plans for the spring semester include the annual Film Evening, an annual charity fundraiser, Guess the Gummi Bear contest and an end-of-the-year trip to New York City.

Mr. Matalucci shares a bittersweet moment with this year’s German Club students while on the World Language Department annual ice-skating party at the Blue Cross River Rink at Penn’s Landing. This was the last ice-skating event Mr. Matalucci will attend with his German students, as he is planning on retiring at the end of the school year.  Pictured l-r are: Brianna Hanson, Jake Sholders, Shane Forand, Anthony Tredway, Rob Michaelchuck, Natalie Spissel, Ed Michaelchuck, Mr. Matalucci, Gio Postorivo, Mike Stiles, Gareth Jones, Brooke Moran, Bruce Wood, Vanesa Reeves, Sydney Wallace and Amanda Craig.
