Middle School Musical “Cinderella”

cinderella_blogThe Middle School musical was once again a great success! Featuring a cast of 16 talented students in grades 5-7, the production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella played to a full house on both April 12 and April 13. As part of the after-school program, the students worked diligently since September to master their lines, songs, and choreography, with great results. The many parents, siblings, friends, and relatives in attendance were thoroughly entertained.

Thanks to the dedicated Arts faculty, the student crew and artists, staff assistants, and the parents who helped with costumes and the cast party. It truly was a team effort. Click here to see a Facebook gallery.

Lower School Arts Festival – Part I

On Feb. 10, families of the four oldest classes in the Lower School enjoyed an Arts Festival featuring student performances in dance, music, and drama. The morning also included a short film retelling a Native American fire legend, as well as numerous displays of visual art including cardboard skyscrapers, frog puppets, and miniature Native American lodgings.

The four youngest classes in the Lower School will have their turn on April 28, and the Middle School Arts Festival is tentatively slated for May 25.

PA Bowling Party

The Parents Association’s annual Bowling Party was a great success, with over 150 people (parents, students, siblings, caregivers) coming together for a fun Sunday morning on January 29. It was the highest attended bowling party in recent memory.

Lights, Camera, Action

gala_filming_2017On January 20, a film crew turned one of the 5th floor classrooms into a makeshift film studio. The crew visited Gateway to gather footage and student interviews for the annual Gala, the school’s signature fundraising and community event, which will take place on April 20, 2017 at Tribeca Three Sixty.

We look forward to sharing the completed video with everyone at the Gala.
