)This year Gateway students are once again volunteering at the Richland Area Community Center on Friday Mornings. Our students work one-on-one with senior citizens to help them with any issues they have with their phones or other electronic devices. If you would like help with your phone, please contact the RACC at (269) 629-9430.
As part of our commitment to community service, Gateway students travelled to the Southwest Michigan SPCA. Our students spend time entertaining the cats and walking the dogs. This is the third year of our partnership with the SPCA
Gateway Academy is partnering again with the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission. Gateway students visit the Gospel Mission each month. While they are at the Mission, our students help prepare lunch, serve lunch and help clean up.

As part of our commitment to learning life skills, Gateway Academy hosted Mrs. Kim Sinclair who taught our students basic sewing skills. From threading a needle to sewing on a button, Mrs. Sinclair patiently worked with our students, untangling thread and guiding stitches. Many thanks to our guest for her help!
Today, Deputy Adam Kelm, the Gull Lake Community Schools resource officer came to visit. He discussed how he became an officer, what he likes and doesn't like about his job, and any topics of interest to our students. Officer Adam has been very helpful to the students and staff of Gateway Academy and truly appreciate all that he does.
Due to a generous grant from the Audubon Society, Gateway Academy, along with several Master Gardeners, have designed and planted a butterfly garden on our new property. We look forward to watching it grow over the upcoming years.
UPDATE: We already had out first butterfly visitor!
