Gatewood Association of Parents (GAP) maintains a strong presence on campus to support and enhance the educational experience at Gatewood School. GAP helps to leverage volunteer power, improve communications, support school programs, and events, host various Teacher Appreciation events throughout the year and monetarily provide for the non-budgeted campus, building and classroom improvements. Research clearly shows that parental involvement is critical in sustaining strong schools, and as an independent school that relies on parent and community support, the defining research statement could not be more accurate. GAP is making a difference year by year and we encourage you to lend your time and support, no matter how little or great, it is valued and appreciated.
The 2018-2019 GAP Officers and Team Members are as follows:
|Mollie Burke||Team Member|
|Heather Burgess||Team Member|
|Laura VandePlanque||Team Member|
|Anne Bared- Hill||Team Member|
|Molly Burke||Team Member|
|Jennifer Tillery||Team Member|
The GAP Team would love to welcome you and your ideas to our core base. Feel free to reach out to one of us at any time.
GAP 2018/2019 Fundraising Initiatives:
Are you an Amazon shopper? Join Amazon Smile and set “Gatewood Schools, Inc.” as your charity. GAP received a check for $105.65 in August from our participants. Thank you!
In an effort to facilitate non-budgeted campus and classroom needs, as well as specific requests and wishes, GAP presents our second annual “Gatewood Giving” event.
As we continue to find ways to improve our facilities and classrooms, we welcome and encourage you to join us.
GAP receives requests year-round for needed and wish list items that are either non-budgeted for the year or replacements. As a group, it is our desire to facilitate each and every need presented.
As a grandparent, parent or supporter of our independent school, we hope you will help us help our school shine. The presented wish list varies on the price scale, but there is no value on support. Thank you.

If you missed this event last spring, I hope that you will stay tuned and plan to join us this year. As a first annual event, there were several kinks that will be worked out in this year’s planning stages, but what a good time was had. A total of $8,423.38 was raised and split between GAP and our multiple school sports programs. GAP used the halved portion to begin the playground project over the summer.
