Fall Festival & Trunk or Treat 2023

The PSP would like to thank everyone who helped make this yearโ€™s Fall Festival & Trunk or Treat a great success. It was amazing to see so many families enjoying themselves at this fun annual event. Thank you to those who contributed to the AGC (which without those funds events like these would not be possible), those who volunteered their time to run the event, families and classes who decorated the most awesome trunks and tables, those who donated candy and treats, and to our gracious community sponsors. We couldnโ€™t have done it without you all.
Votes from Trunk or Treat for the best trunk and table have been tallied. You all did so great, and we loved seeing all the creativity and hard work put in. The winners are below.

Another shout out to Gateway families who have had a chance to contribute to the Annual Giving Campaign thus far! We love seeing those Gateway Gator orange bracelets on students’ wrists and Gator stickers on water bottles!
This Friday, Oct 6th, bracelets and stickers will be distributed for teachers to pass out to their students. (Numbers will be pulled at 8pm today, 10/4)
The next Friday distribution is on Oct 20th and then monthly following on a designated Friday! More information coming soon on all the special projects the AGC is funding this year.

Welcome Back! Let’s partner together for the 2023-2024 school year!

Welcome back Families! We are so excited to have you with us for the 2023-2024 school year. As a charter school, the partnership between parents and the school is crucial! Every single student and family member is a part of this partnership, and we ask that you find at least one way to partner with us this year!

A quick way to get started on that partnership is to donate to the Annual Giving Campaign and create a peer-to-peer fundraising page for your student(s)! More info can be found here.

Then, please take a moment to fill out the Volunteer Interest Form to let PSP know how you’d like to get involved on campus.

We look forward to partnering with you this year!
