Support Gates School and Eat at Not Your Average Joe’s!

We are happy to report that Gates Elementary School was selected again for the Not Your Average Cause Program . Not Your Average Joe’s chose Gates School because they believe in the value we bring to the community and they want to contribute to our success.

Here is how it works. Every Tuesday during the month of March Gates families are invited to dine (or carry out) at Not Your Average Joe’s and they will donate 15% of your total purchase to Gates School. Simply present this certificate to your server on March 13th, 20th and 27th and verbally state your affiliation. The more Gates Elementary supporters who participate, the more money Not Your Average Joe’s will donate!
Wear Some Gates Spirit Wear This Spring

Help foster a sense of community and pride at Gates School by wearing our branded apparel. Simply go to the Paul P. Gates School Store powered by Squadlocker and add the items you want to purchase to your cart. 10% of the cost of the item will be donated to Gates School.
