Gateway Pizza Party!
     On Thursday 23rd, Gateway hosted a pizza party reunion for seniors and freshmen to receive their Gateway hoodies and T-shirts. All the students were pleased with the way the hoodies came out (shout out to our editor Nicole Montana who designed them!), and were all smiles as they ate their delicious pizza.

Happy New Year!
    New year, new us. With the start of a new year, Raiders are excited to finish off their school year. We hope that 2014 brings many great experiences, friendships, and above all, academic success. And speaking of academic success, here's an article by exchange student Mathilde Lambert from Belgium, who spent the fall term here with us at Port Richmond. In her article, Mathilde gives here impressions of our school and discusses her experience as an exchange student here in the U.S.A. Enjoy the article, and look for our upcoming New Year's Resolutions photo layout. Best of luck to all in the new year!
