Success Starts Here

Gala Success

April 24, 2017

The Gala on April 20 was a great success! Thanks to everyone who attended and contributed to Gateway. Departing from tradition, the event featured a festive Western theme, complete with country music, cowboy hats galore, and even a mechanical bull. The funds raised through sponsorships, ticket sales, and the silent, live, and reverse auctions represent an inspiring commitment from our community, ensuring that our unique educational program will be available for current and future generations of bright children with learning differences. Special thanks go out to all of our generous Sponsors, The Joseph H. Flom Foundation, the Gala Committee, and especially Gateway parent and trustee Melissa Lis for chairing this year’s Gala.

Middle School Musical “Cinderella”

April 14, 2017

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.
