Lower School Arts Festival – Part I

February 10, 2017

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.

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.

The group welcomed students as they arrived in the morning with an assortment of fun and festive tunes: “Frosty the Snowman,” “Winter Wonderland,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” and more.

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.
