Art Auction Success!

A great big GGS thank you goes out to everyone who helped make Friday's Chili/Cornbread Cook-Off and Art Auction such a success!  Donna Shockley was awarded the Korn Kween for her "Opinionated Corn Pones" and Christie Francis received the Ladle of Glory for her "White Wave" chili.  The cook-off brought in $400 and the auction netted $2,600 for a grand total of $3,000!  Thanks again for supporting our art program!

Buddy Bench

There is a recent addition to the GGS playground.  We have added a Buddy Bench to make sure everyone has someone to play with.  If a student doesn't have someone to play with, they simply have a seat on the Buddy Bench. That is the signal to other students that someone needs someone to play with.  They will then include that student in their activity.  I'm so excited that all students now have a way to be included at GGS!

2nd Grade Presidential Speeches

Today, the 2nd Grade did an excellent job on their presidential speeches!  They all did an amazing job and I was so impressed with their ability to deliver a public speech.  Way to go Gators!

Art Auction Coming April 29!

Get ready for this year's Gallatin Gateway School Art Auction!  The event will occur on Friday, April 29 and will run in partnership with the Chili and Cornbread Cook-off.  Both events will occur at the school and will begin at 5:30!  Here are a some of the chairs that are going to be auctioned off next Friday!  Get your checkbooks ready!

This chair was made by the 4th Grade!  It would be a perfect addition to any patio!

This chair was made by the Kindergarten!  It should be illegal to cram that much cuteness into one chair!
