From the Principal

Mrs.Bergens

Greetings From The Gateway Gators!!

We are proud of our staff and students and we invite you to be involved at Gateway Elementary.  Visit classrooms, the office, library, cafeteria and playground.  There is a spirit of cooperation and progress at our school and we want to share it with you.  The goal of our school is to provide each student with a challenging and rigorous curriculum appropriate to his/her academic level.  We believe every child can achieve academic success.  To this end, every child will be provided with quality instructional experiences which recognize, support and maintain high expectations for all students.  Our vision and mission is:  Learning, Thinking, Doing ..... Building a Gateway to the Future.  We pursue this through:  Valuing learning, sharing a contagious excitement contributing to the community.  We believe in a joy of learning, life-long learning, mutual respect, teamwork, excellence and integrity.
With parents and teachers working together as a team, towards the same goal, every child will succeed.  In order to give each child the best opportunity for success, we ask that we keep children first in all that we do.  If we accept and make real the pledge to keep children first, then it follows that education is our #1 priority.  A school-community with those two concepts as our core value and our common cause will stand ready, willing and able to do what is needed for educating our children.  I know Gateway School community is such a place.
Our website is one avenue of communication that we will use to keep parents, students, staff and community informed about what is happening at school and in our district.  As you navigate through the site, please send us feedback on what you like or what would be helpful because we want the website to be a useful tool.

Sincerely,
Margaret Bergens
