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.

On 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.
On the last day of school before the holiday recess, Gateway staff and members of the Middle School chorus teamed up for a Winter Sing-Along.

From all of us at The Gateway School, have a restful and enjoyable holiday recess. We will see you again when school resumes on January 3, 2017.
