Mr. Joseph Nuño

 Welcome Back Garden Gate Families!  We are super excited for a successful 2019-2020 School Year!  We hope everyone had a wonderful summer break with family and friends.

As a friendly reminder, our 1st day of school for ALL students will be on August 15th.  Please arrive early and do your best to avoid the parking lot between 7:52-8:00am.  We are highly encouraging families to drop off students between 7:45-7:52 daily to avoid parking lot congestion, tardies, and a chaotic start to our students' day.  Thank you for understanding these small, but major requests to support our Gatorland!

Look forward to seeing everyone in August,

Mr. Joseph Nuño

 FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITIES AT GARDEN GATE! Goodwill Fundraiser will be hosted on both JANUARY 11th and MAY 16th

Flyer- Click Here


Bring your items in bags and/or boxes to the front of the school.  We have a designated space for all donations.  The more we collect prior to January 11th, the better.  On January 11th, House Council students will support in transporting the donations to the Goodwill Truck in the Parking Lot.  Also, we will be going into the community with flyers and bags to encourage any "day of" donations.


The fundraiser is based on the amount of items donated.  More specifically, the weight of these items.  The more weight we achieve; the more money we earn.

Empty out those garages and storage units- Books, clothes, and small appliances are common items to donate.

What do the proceeds go to?

The Goodwill proceeds will go directly back to the students!  The funds will go directly into our House Council Budget, which will go towards student activities and events, school projects, and much more.
