Day 3:  Thursday, August 24th – All Students

Gateway to Greatness










Gateway Elementary provides all children with opportunities to elevate their skills as life-long learners and leaders.


In this place, we will respect, nurture, and empower every child to achieve greatness.

Gateway Ambassadors

The Gateway Ambassadors program provides mentoring, peer counseling and mediation to younger students at our school. The Gateway Ambassadors are fifth graders who are trained in problem-solving and conflict resolution, putting those skills to work on the playground, the lunchroom and in the classroom. The Gateway Ambassadors will also provide help at school functions, give school tours, welcome new students and are involved in promoting the school.
The qualifications for becoming a Gateway Ambassador are:

· Be a good student with good grades

· Have a positive attitude toward school

· Be willing to support fellow students

· Be good listeners and have effective communication skills

· Must be able to problem-solve effectively

· Show leadership skills

Mrs. Richardson, Mr. Davis and Mrs. Lawson are sponsors and mentors to the Gateway Ambassadors program.
