Happy Holidays!

The staff at GGS want to wish each and every one of you a safe and happy holiday season!  We decided to show our holiday spirit during our first annual ugly sweater day.  

Food Drive Results

The generosity of the GGS community this past week has been simply overwhelming.  The school's holiday food drive brought in over 700 non-perishable items!  The first grade won the school-wide competition with 155 items and the third grade took second with 141 items!  I also want to thank Ms. Davis, Mrs. Curry, and the fourth graders for the hard work they put into making the food drive a success!  The items were delivered to the Gallatin Valley Food Bank and will greatly help those in need.  Way to go Gators, I'm so very proud of you!

Christmas Concert

Thank you Mr. Mohr and all of our Gators for the hard work they put into last night's Christmas Concert!  I was simply amazed by the performances and think you all did an amazing job!  In fact, Mr. Mohr had a special visitor after the concert to wish him congratulations on another successful concert!

Blessing Bag Donations!

Thank you to the GGS community for helping the first and third graders make and donate blessing bags to the Gallatin Valley Warming Center!  They worked so hard and were able to put together more than 40 bags.  Way to go Gators!

High School Expansion Meeting

Just wanted to remind you that tomorrow there will be a meeting to discuss options for expansion of the high school on Wednesday, December 16 from 6 - 8 in the BHS South Cafeteria.  Additional information on the meeting can be found in today's Bozeman Daily Chronicle.  Please be sure to stop by and get the most recent information on the project.  Your voice is important in this process as the decisions being made directly impact Gallatin Gateway School students.  I'm looking forward to seeing you tomorrow night.

Federal Rewrite of No Child Left Behind?

I know that many of you have already heard news that the federal government is getting close to revising the No Child Left Behind (otherwise known as the Elementary and Secondary Education Act or ESEA) legislation passed in 2002.  Recently, The Huffington Post published an article discussing this legislation and what some of the proposed changes may look like.  Revising the ESEA is an important decision and I hope that our elected officials on both sides of the aisle take a moment to consider how these changes impact schools at the local level.  I will keep you up to date on any changes made to federal legislation as it relates to education at Gallatin Gateway School.
