Gateway STEM "JagPaws Place" Dog Park Initiative
With the approval of Dr. Phillips and the Administration Team, in a collaborative venture with the Pre-Veteranary Clinic and Ms. Gladden, we have been approved to establish a proposed Dog Park on the school grounds at Gateway STEM High School in Saint Louis, MO, located in the grassed area north of the library in between the gym. My proposed fenced enclosure would introduce a space that can be utilized to further the enhancement of the pre-vet department, while allowing a better environment for which our pets can be free to run and exercise. The space will also be utilized for the inclusion of a weather station component, which will have the ability to share data with the classroom/school along with the website Global.gov in a collaborative effort with the National Weather Service.
The goal is to raise funds for the construction of a fence to enclose the area for the park, along with other amenities for dog care.
Our hope is to get this park functional by the end of Fall 2019 to use for the school year! Our students are committed and very excited for this initiative.
Please visit this gofundme link and help us support this cause!
Any questions, please contact Mr. Bova!

On Friday May 3, 2019 we will be hosting a Decision Day event for our seniors. This event will be held to celebrate our students making their final decision on post-secondary options and honor those who have chosen to go to a college/university/trade school or military.
We are hoping to have any staff who would like to donate items that will help our students with their futures. As we know, it takes a village to prepare our students and we are also looking for any outside help available. In terms of donations, you may think anything that students will need for college, the military, and job market.
Thank You for all your support,
Noor Ahmed - College Advisor

Gateway STEM Celebrates:
National Hispanic Heritage Month, began on Sept. 15, and celebrates U.S. Latinos, their culture and their history. Started in 1968 by Congress as Hispanic Heritage Week, it was expanded to a month in 1988. The celebration begins in the middle rather than the start of September because it coincides with national independence days in several Latin American countries: Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Costa Rica celebrate theirs on Sept. 15, followed by Mexico on Sept. 16, Chile on Sept. 18 and Belize on Sept 21.

GoFundMe: Gateway HS Athletic Equipment
Gateway High School is the largest urban high school in the St. Louis area. As a product of St. Louis Public Schools, I know what it’s like to walk in the shoes of our students. I have walked the same hallways, and encountered some of the same challenges that our students face today. One of the things that I depended on in high school was sports. Through sports I learned values and life lessons that made me want to give back to my community.
Student Athletes in at risk communities and city schools are often left behind because our school system lacks the resources and equipment of other schools districts. Other area school districts have the luxury of additional athletic resources. These resources provide additional funding for coaches, equipment, uniforms, and provide additional support in areas needed. My goal is to give the athletic programs and student population the best opportunity to compete at the highest level and prepare and develop their future endeavors.
As coaches, we want what’s best for our athletes, and we want our athletes to compete on the same level as other elite schools in our area. Therefore, it is imperative that our students are given the best opportunities and resources that can be offered. The goal is to update and add some additional features in our weight room that hasn't been updated in over 30 years.
Your donation will make a huge difference in leveling the playing field for our athletes at Gateway High School , and may launch them on a path to compete in sports on a collegiate level.
Thank you for your support!!!! Go JAGS!!!!!
