A Bridge to Somewhere
The annual Bridge Program kicked off Monday for incoming kindergartners this fall to Gateway. Students become familiar with their new school in a fun and interactive way. About 45 students are enrolled for the two-day session. Above, kinder teacher Chrisa Dorsey works with a student on his art project.
Congratulations to the 58 green-robed seniors who earned their diplomas at graduation ceremonies on May 28 in the Auxiliary Gym. Carla Silber, Orenda Education Chief Operating Officer, was the main speaker. Good luck to all the Gator-exes as they move on to the next step in their lives.

Gators Bow Out of Playoffs
The Gator baseball team, District 25-3A Champs, came close to advancing to the Regional Finals, but fell short to a South Texas Banquete Bulldog team this past week in a playoff series played in Three Rivers and Liberty Hill. The Gators lost both games by 3-1 scores. Banquete willl now play district rival Bishop (which defeated Lago Vista) to see who goes to the State Playoffs staged at the Dell Diamond.
Congrats Class of 2028!
Gateway's kindergartners were promoted to the 1st Grade in an hour-long ceremony held in the Auxiliary Gym Thursday morning. Onward and upward, Little Gators!
What's That Nipping at Your Toes, Mr. S?
The Senior Class at Gateway presented their "gift" to Head of School, Alan Santucci, Tuesday morning in the form of garden gators peering out from the flower beds in front of the Student Union Building.
Gateway Parent Memorialized
(May 18) -- As part of National Police Week, Orenda Education and Gateway officials hosted a memorial service for Chris Kelley, a Hutto police officer and Gateway parent who was killed in the line of duty last June. A Texas native tree in Kelley's memory was planted next to the Student Union with a plaque mounted at the tree base. Members of the choir sang to the audience which was comprised of several law enforcement officers from the Hutto Police Department and Williamson County Sheriff's Department Honor Guard. Kelley's wife, Michelle, also was present along with her children. MaKenzie Kelley is a member of Ms. Nichols' second grade class, which also attended (pictured above).
