  • 2015-2016 Orientation

     
    For those new students who have received acceptance letters from St. Louis Public Schools for Gateway Middle School for the 2015-2016 school year, mandatory orientation will be on Wednesday, August 5, 2015.
     
    Students who were not enrolled in a St. Louis Public School last school year should bring the following:
    • last year's report card
    • birth certificate
    • shot records
    • IEP or any Special Education documents
    Transportation information will be mailed by the district 1-2 weeks before the beginning of school.  Gateway will not receive transportation information until a few days before the beginning of school.  If you address has changed, you must contact the district at 314-231-3720.  If often takes several weeks for transportation to be adjusted, so if you wait until just before school begins, changes may not be available for the beginning of the school year.
     
    If you have any questions, you may call the school beginning on July 27th or email Michael.Herron@slps.org.

  • Human Rights Day Essay Winners

    Gateway Middle School is extremely proud of our 6th grade writers. Students had the opportunity to submit a Human Rights essay to the St. Louis Coalition of Human Rights. The topic this year centered around the Michael Brown/ Ferguson Movement and policing in this area. Students had to  respond to the following writing prompt: Are police policy and procedures violating citizen’s Human Rights? Three of our six graders were recognized for their awesome essays (1st Place, 2nd Place and Honorable Mention).

School Health & Wellness Policy

Gateway Middle School has had the privilege of being a part of a pilot program called Alliance for a Healthier Generation for the past 4 years. We are trying to teach the students how to live a healthy lifestyle through this program and the school district’s wellness policy. If you would like to find out more about this program and get involved you are welcome to join the School Health/Wellness Council (SHAC).

As part of this program we are teaching students to eat healthy snacks, and exercise. So we ask that you send healthy snacks with your student/s. We are not allowing students to bring in chips, candy, soft drinks, energy drinks, gum, sunflower seeds with shells, and Kool-Aid in any type of packaging for snacks. If the students bring these items they will be confiscated. The confiscated items will not be returned without a parent coming to get them. Snacks that are allowed include trail mix, nuts, crackers, pretzels, granola bars, fruit snacks, fresh fruit, water, Gatorade, juice.

The student will be allowed to bring chips (maximum two small bags), soft drink and candy (maximum two pieces) if they bring a lunch to school. They must have a sandwich or a main dish before it is considered a lunch.

All glass items, permanent markers, sports balls (basketballs, footballs, etc.) and flip-flops will also be confiscated upon entering the building. Flip-flops will only be returned on the last Friday of the month. All open containers of food or drink that are confiscated will be immediately thrown away.
