A Letter from our Superintendent
Dear Community Members,
The Gateway Regional Board of Education prepared the 2012-2013 school budget with a deep awareness of its impact on our communities.
While the state permitted districts to increase the budget by as much as 2%, the Gateway Board made a conscious decision to stay below that figure. The 2012-2013 budget only increases 1.4% yet maintains all of our existing academic, sports, and student activity programs and adds the following much-needed items:
Dr. Holly Bush is Gateway’s 2011-12 Teacher of the Year
Dr. Holly Bush, a middle school Science teacher at Gateway, was selected as Teacher of the Year for the 2011-12 school year. In her 11 years at Gateway, Dr. Bush has been teaching middle school students to go beyond their comfort zones and reach for the stars in their resource science classes. She also works with Mrs. Bette McMahon, teaching exploratory Spanish classes to resource students.
Students Learn Dangers of Distracted Driving
Against a photo backdrop of the beloved sister that she lost to a distracted driver, Angel Donato (pictured), gave a heartfelt presentation on the dangers of distracted driving to Gateway High School students. Toni Donato-Bolis and her unborn baby were killed when the driver of another car lost control of his vehicle and hit their car because he was preoccupied with an electronic device. The Donato-Bolis family travels to different schools in South Jersey giving this presentation with the hope that it will save another family from going through the devastation and loss that they have suffered. For more information, contact The Toni Donato-Bolis and Baby RJ Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
