    Gateway K-4 Elementary Classes Become Published Authors for the 8th Year 

    Hard work yields great results. Each year when the class book packets are handed out, there’s a bit of anxiety that ensues. However, the remark, “But the end product is so worth it!” is also heard many times. Students, and teachers alike, are so excited when their books arrive and are anxious to see what others have done and share their published work.  Pictured with their class books are 4th grader Zoe Moon and 3rd grader Andrew Fleischmann along  with coordinator of the project, Mrs. Minzenmayer.

  • Funds for New Led Vision Board for New Gym Needed

    FUNDRAISING ALERT.....Orenda Education is attempting to raise monies to fund an LED video display board to be mounted in the new Main Gymnasium on the Gateway College Prep campus. Donations totaling $50,000 are required to purchase the 6.6 foot-tall by 11.48 foot-wide pixilated board and control system.

    The LED board would enhance a K-12 school community experience by promoting all the activities that occur in the gym... from athletic events to pep rallies to fine arts performances to graduation exercises.

    “We feel this is a great opportunity to showcase our students and our school environment to all who will view content on this state-of-the-art media tool, including students, families and visitors to the campus” said Tommy Turner, Director of Community Relations.

    Turner said much of the content for the display board also would be created by students studying video production and broadcasting courses now offered at the secondary school level. The video board will need to be staffed during events and student volunteers would help in those roles.

    Eventually, advertising space could be sold with revenue helping to underwrite a portion of the cost of the board. Multi-year contracts could be sold to larger advertisers or local businesses with smaller budgets could purchase digital announcements during a single athletic event, for example, Turner said.

    Persons interested in making pledges or donations to this project should contact Kelsey Rentschler at kelsey.rentschler@orendaeducation.org or call 512-869-3020.
