Gateway International School Website: The GIS website and Facebook page has a wealth of information in one place. Another important feature on the GIS website is the Schoolloop Gradebook where parents can access students' current grades. In addition to school information, teacher websites provide class specific information. It is important to consistently check the website for new information.

E-Mail: Staff members use e-mail: Parents are encouraged to use this method to communicate with all GIS staff members. Parents can directly email teachers through Gateway Intenational Schoolloop webpage.

In the School Site Council is a very important part of the governance structure at Gateway International School. The SSC is charged with participating in the development of the Single School District plan (including the site budget), approving the plan and recommending it for approval by the GCC Board of Directors. SSC is also responsible for monitoring the implementation of the plan, including the expenditure of funds and the monitoring of achievement. SSC parents are elected by all parents. If you are interested in being placed on the ballot, please contact the school principal in August.

Gateway International School welcomes parent visitors at anytime; however, it is important that the parents make arrangements with the classroom teacher in advance, out of consideration for classroom instructional time. All parent visitors are required to check in at the office to get a visitor's badge.

If you wish to discuss your child's progress with the teacher, please arrange for a private conference with the teacher outside of instructional class time. Also, you may considerate to discuss your child's progress with the teacher thru the Schoolloop email system.

Parents are an integral part of our school program and community, and as such, are strongly encouraged to become involved. Parents can become involved by volunteering in the classroom, helping with field trips or special events, attending School Site Council meetings. Parents who are interested in volunteering their time, skills, or talents, should talk to the classroom teacher for details. Please consider that increased parental involvement encourages increased student success.

Parent volunteers can help teachers with tasks such as reading with or to individual students, working with a child or a group on basic math facts or high frequency words, etc. If being on campus does not fit a parent's schedule, they can help out by volunteering to do cutting, collating, filling book orders, running copies, etc.

Birthdays and other holiday celebrations are an important part of our culture. However, we'd like to encourage families to do most of the celebrating at home. A small celebration of healthy snacks or other treats my be brought to celebrate a student's birthday, but only after lunch, and at the teacher's discretion.

If you need to leave a message for the teacher or your child, please contact the office. Office personnel willl do their best to contact the teacher or student during recess or lunch. In the event of an emergency, the message will be relayed immediately.
