50 years ago, Gatewood Schools opened their doors for the first time! Happy Birthday to Gatewood! Please see the
annual Gator Tales magazine. It may also be found on Gatewood’s webpage
A vital part of any school’s spirit and tradition is its Alumni Association. We share a common bond that supports
our tradition of academic excellence, our athletic foundation of fierce competitiveness, and our legacy of educating
children in a nurturing, Christian environment. In November of 2019, several alumni met informally to discuss plans to
celebrate Gatewood’s 50th . However, like everything else, this birthday party was impacted by COVID 19. Undaunted,
they are pressing on with other plans! We established the “1970 Society”!
The 1970 Society would like to extend an invitation to all Gatewood Alumni, Current Parents, Past Parents,
Grandparents, Friends, and Supporters to become a member. You may choose to be involved in any or all events, to
volunteer, or simply be interested in Gatewood happenings. This is an opportunity to connect with Gatewood’s past,
present, and future.
What is in it for you? You will receive a Gator lapel pin, a membership card that will grant you free entry into one home
football game and one home basketball game. We will put together a membership directory that will also list potential
internship or job opportunities. We are raising money for Gatewood for several initiatives, such as the possibility of a
diversity scholarship and/or capital improvements.
To become a member, or sponsor a member, please send in $19.70 to Gatewood School, with “1970 Society” in the
memo. Gatewood Schools, 139 Phillips Drive, Eatonton, GA 31024.
