Principal’s Message

April 13, 2015

Dear Parents, Students, and Community Members:

It has been a great year so far here at Gateway. We kicked off the year with our annual Anti-Bullying Pancake Breakfast. We’ve welcomed our new School Resource Officer, Rosario Lopez as well as our new Assistant Principal, Ms. Jennifer Quirk. Students have been treated to assemblies that focus on Anti-Bullying and Big Red from the Arizona Cardinals came to visit to help deliver a check from Wells Fargo for our school.

As we come to the close of this school year, I want to thank everyone who has helped to make it successful. As parents, you truly do spend more time with your children than we do. All of the support you provide at home, help with homework, and ensuring that your child receives enough sleep each night helps them be prepared for their school day.

We are in the middle of the most important time of our school year with state and district assessments. Please continue to make sure your child receives enough sleep. Provide encouragement at home for your child to do his/her best on the assessments. Most importantly, ask your child about his/her school day and spend time speaking with your child.

Kindergarten promotion will be on May 20th and eighth grade promotion will be on May 21st. I am looking forward to seeing our students I am looking forward to a strong finish to our 2014-2015 school year!

Educationally yours,
Ellen A. Heller
