Gateway School walk-a-thon

Gateway School’s Student Council and their lead teacher Kim Lenz inspired the entire school to take part in a student-led walk-a-thon. Each class selected an organization that they were passionate about supporting. Students raised money for the organizations they chose, made posters sharing each organization’s information and mission, and then walked in support of them.  Thank you to our Student Council for leading this effort and to all those who supported and participated in this fun and powerful event! Together our students raised over $11,000 for the organizations that their classes chose to support!
