Greetings Great Gateway Families!!
I hope that February finds you and your family in good health and spirits. February is a month all about love and heart. Here at Gateway, we celebrate National Heart Month by wearing red and, of course, we celebrate Valentine’s Day. As we did last year, we are going to focus on kindness and spreading our love and gratitude out into the community as well as within our building this year. Classrooms may be making cards for community groups and/or for each other. Each classroom teacher will send out details to parents as we get closer to Valentine’s Day. One thing to note: since we do not have school on Valentine’s Day there will not be a day where all classrooms are having parties.
Outside of these events, what comes to my mind is the importance of love in our daily lives and the recognition of all the different types of love that fill our lives. It is our Gateway family love that ties us together, that brings 400 adults and children together as one, and that unites us in pride, friendship, and respect. I am so proud to lead a staff that focuses every day on loving your children, our children.
I would also like to remind you that our magnetic calendars contain a mistake this month. Please note that there is no school for students February 14-21. I hope that you have the ability to take some time during this week to focus on family events and activities.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns or would like to get involved at Gateway, don’t hesitate to give me a call or shoot me an email.
Principal Ashley Lawson
