As members of the Gatewood community of learners, the mission of the Gatewood Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is to work together with the Gatewood staff to support the ongoing process of helping our children become Independent Learners. By providing a volunteer presence at the school, participating in the decision making process, and providing additional financial resources, we are partners with the staff in their endeavor to teach our children cooperative learning, technology, critical thinking, multiple intelligences, science, reading, writing and mathematics.
