GSA Celebrates National School Choice Week

Gateway Science Academy Middle & High School

Celebrates National School Choice Week!

January 22-26, 2018


Special events are planned throughout the week to celebrate public charter schools and school choice.


  • Students will be asked to have their picture taken with a special board declaring why GSA is their school of choice. These will be posted and shared with the community.
  • Each day of the week 15 students will be drawn in a raffle to receive special SCW and GSA attendance prizes.
  • Photo booths will be set up around school and students and parents will be encouraged before school, during lunch, and after school to take a photo and post what school choice and GSA means to them using #SCW, #WeAreGSA, and #WeAreConcept.
  • Art students will draw or paint their “stories” of school choice on SCW posters to be displayed around school and posted on our social media.
  • Thursday, Jan. 25 we will celebrate “School Choice Helps Us Be College Ready” by wearing college sweatshirts (with uniform pants).
  • Thursday, Jan. 25, we will have a general session PTO meeting during which we will have refreshments to celebrate SCW and principals will share information on school choice and our services as a public charter school and Title 1 school.
  • On Friday, student ambassadors will present candy bars to parents during drop-off and thank parents for choosing GSA.
