Gateway High faculty have assembled an impressive array of activities in all disciplines for students to take on during the summer. As they are ungraded and optional, all are designed to be relevant to students’ lives, maximize student choice, and be fun! It’s a great opportunity to go-in depth into topics constrained by the typical school schedule or that aren’t quite covered by state standards. And while it’s true most students probably have literally nothing better to do, the deal is made sweeter by a prize raffle: completed projects earn entries into two different raffles for teen-friendly gift cards.  This Student FAQ explains the how and, more importantly, the why of the program to help kids get on board.
