The 5th grade class of 2014 from Gateway Science Academy completed their step-up ceremony on Wednesday, May 28th in the GSA gymnasium. The students sang, accepted awards for academic excellence, and received their certificates of completion. Gina Mitten, a Missouri state representative, spoke at the ceremony and offered great advice to the students about how to continue to succeed in middle school and beyond.
The students were also surprised with a guest speaker, Mrs. Bryant, who was their second grade teacher the first year GSA was opened. The event was well attended, and parents, staff, and students mingled over punch and cookies at the conclusion of the event.
