Gateway Elementary

Team Alpine Foxes

Welcome to the Gateway Team Alpine Foxes!

As Team Alpine Foxes, we will give and receive choices to our classmates so that we can grow our brains forever, be brave and be a good example.

Gateway Elementary values helping students develop self-efficacy. Self-efficacy is the belief that one is ultimately in control of one's own life and the development of the accompanying skills to actualize this belief. To this end, each Alpine class works collaboratively to write a classroom goal that is customized for the school's vision and themselves. This goal is supported by a code of cooperation that guides the students' behaviors and growth throughout the year.

Class Code of Cooperation:

1. Ask 1st, then help.

2. Try one choice 1st, then another to see which one is better.

3. Try new things.

4. Stand up for someone.

5. Care about others.

Our Alpine team is here to serve you. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information on 2nd & 3rd grade at Gateway.
