Gators of the Month
Each month, two faculty selection committees, one for the middle school and another for the senior high, meet to review students nominated for the “Gator-of-the-Month” award. Students are selected on the basis of citizenship, academic effort, and participation in school activities. Two students from the senior high and four from the middle school (one from each team) are selected for the award and are honored at the Board of Education meeting.

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.
