Gateway finishing school year this week
“Our care of the children should be governed not by the desire to ‘make them learn things,’ but by the endeavor always to keep burning within them the light which is called intelligence.” РMaria Montessori
Gateway Academy is now enrolling for the 2012-13 school year. Come have a tour of our school and see what makes us different. The last day of school at Gateway is May 31.
The students of the 6-9 environment had a fantastic Spring Festival last week. Various works of art were on display depicting different biomes from around the world.

Have a fun and safe summer break! GPA starts up again on Aug. 13.

North has great Arts Night to finish year
Cedar North Elementary would like to thank all those who participated and supported our Arts Night. We had a super turnout, the kids performed well as grade levels and as individuals, and we had a great time as a community coming together and getting to know each other.
Thanks to Mrs. Melanie Skankey and Mrs. Kristina McGuire for all their incredible efforts to get everything ready for this fun night. The individual classroom teachers also did a great job helping their kids create and display their art Р both visually and musically!
Of course, we so appreciate the great parents and other family members who attended and always show such great support for our school.
We also have to express our sincere gratitude to our wonderful PTA Р not just for their help at Arts Night, but throughout the year. A simple thank you is not enough! We couldn't keep our school going without you! Have a great summer!
