On any school day, you will find parents on campus in roles ranging from planning campus-wide events to doling out lunches to reading with children. After school you will find parents helping with Booster Club activities, helping students build a set for a drama event, setting up a reception that will follow a concert or attending a parent discussion group. Parents get involved at Gatewood to be a part of their children’s experience and to be apart of the community. Don’t’ sit back and wait for a call, Ask how you can help today.
