July Flashback
The Gateway Film - it's finally ready!

Special Grandstand - Nishant Jain
Nishant Jain - a 16 year old student! - spoke about the dangers of battery disposal. Batteries can be recycled, however collection of used batteries is a challenge. He conducts battery collection drives to enable recycling - Gateway will be participating in this initiative!

Curriculum Night
Our Co-Principals shared about Gateway’s vision and impact, and shared overviews of the academics, therapies and arts programs. Siamack (trustee) shared about Gateway’s fundraising efforts. Currently, we offer a subsidized tuition fee - the Bodani foundation sponsors the remaining 50% of the cost per child.

This year, we hope to generate that amount from internal parent contributions before raising funds externally - thus creating a more sustainable fiscal model.
Lastly, Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) representatives were elected: Shilpa Khushalani, Archana Dabhoiwala, Reema Marwah, Varun Sharda, Jayashree Rao, & Tejal Sheth.
