Parent Reminders

Good Morning Everyone,
This school year has certainly not gone the way we had envisioned but with our trust in our heavenly Father, we will get through this pandemic.  We deeply appreciate your support and prayers as we continue online teaching & learning.   As always, please feel free to contact the office if you have any questions or concerns.

💗 A BIG THANK YOU TO OUR EDUCATION ASSISTANTS & INSTRUCTIONAL ASSISTANTS!

As you know, Friday was the last day of the school year for our Education Assistants and Instructional Assistants.  We would like to recognize and honor each one of them for their commitment to our students, staff & parents, their contributions to Christian Education and the important role they play in equipping students to serve God joyfully in every area of life. They so graciously helped out in every area of our school community.  
Thank you ♥ God Bless!  We wish them a safe & happy summer!
🌟 Gateway Christian school is thrilled & proud to announce co-valedictorians William Engel and Kyle McGuire for the Class of 2020!  Congratulations, Kyle & William!   William joined Gateway in Gr. 4 and Kyle in Gr. 1.   We are so proud of them and their accomplishments!
Our prayer is they continue to remain close to God as He continues to guide them through every chapter in their lives!  We know God has great things planned for them!
