“We must help the child act, think, and will for himself. This is the art of serving the spirit, an art which can be practiced to perfection only when working with children.” –Maria Montessori
Last week, the Kindergarten students of Gateway Academy, had a wonderful time at the Frontier Homestead State Park. Students were able to play pioneer games, wash laundry and have a tour of a stagecoach, a cabin and the barn. Our students loved having history come to life.
The 1st grade students were able to go to the Paragonah Pumpkin Patch last week. Students were thrilled to see the botany lessons in action. Students saw all the different parts of the plants- seed, flower, plant and fruit. Students were also able to go through the petting zoo. They enjoyed seeing the cows, pigs and sheep and were able to pet them.
Gateway will be hosting an Usborne Book Fair on Oct. 21st-24th from 11 am-4 pm. The public is welcome to come enjoy a great product and support our school.
