Gateway HS’s Environmental Club “Gateway Cares Day”

Gateway’s Environmental Science Club celebrates its 1st GATEWAY CARES DAY!

By: Mindy Moss, Science teacher and Club Co-Sponsor

4.22.16

Shout outs to Gateway’s Environmental Science Club! To celebrate Earth Day, the Environmental Science club at Gateway H.S. created a special occasion to give back to the community. The idea originated from two freshmen students, Christine Price and Jonathan Soloman, who presented their idea to the school principle, Dr. Davis. After receiving approval, the pair quickly began working to promote the event to other students in the school.

Gateway Cares Day promotes caring for the environment, uplifting the school, and having a positive impact in our community. Final student participants included: Christine Price, Goldie Ramey, Isys Powell, Cisco Balderrama, Lisa Bonnett, Salia Elderidge, Jeffery Deets, Kara Mendez, and Jonathan Solomon. After one and a half hours of walking around the community, the group picked up about 14 bags of trash! The various pieces of trash picked up ranged from plastic wrappers, cigarette butts, and bottles to broken toys, used diapers, receipts, and much more. One student observed that a lot of trash was found on the ground near trash cans.

The students greatly enjoyed the opportunity to help out and felt like they made a positive impact in the area. We’re proud of these Olympians and the efforts the put into making Earth Day and our community special. Help us in congratulating these students on a job well done. Happy Earth Day everyone!

Gateway IB Students: In Their Own Words

 

 

Gateway IB Profile

As part of the Aurora Public Schools strategic plan, APS 2020: Shaping the Future, staff members are focused on helping students earn credentials that will open doors later in life. Through the International Baccalaureate Programme, students can graduate with an IB diploma, automatically earning a minimum of 24 hours of college credit at any university in Colorado.

Gateway High School's Rychen Ly and Charles Reigies are two students on track to graduate with this honor, and they offered their thoughts on how IB is benefiting them.

“I’ve been better with procrastination because it really helps with time management skills. There’s also a lot of support we get from teachers and fellow IB students. Being in this program separates me from the pack and increases the chances of me getting into good colleges.”  – Rychen Ly, junior

 

“It teaches me to manage my time and prioritize. It also taught me to be a leader. I’ve been accepted to Colorado Mesa University, and I attribute that to the IB classes I’ve taken. Beyond that, it’s my intention to get into medical school, and I feel this experience will help me with that as well.” – Charles Reigies, senior
