Community Relations

Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week

Thank you, Stargate community, for your support in showing our appreciation of the awesome teachers and staff of Stargate. As always, your generosity is amazing! 

Fourth Annual Stargate Art Show

What an amazing 2017 art show and reception to showcase Stargate kids’ creative talents!  Many thanks to Jan Weingardt and her committee for planning and organizing the event, hanging the art and working at the reception.  The 7West Pizza food truck was a hit and are contributing $150 to Stargate!  Thank you to our art teachers, Arrilla Beatty & Lucas Thomas for their commitment to the show and to Mrs. Ariane Pegler for arranging musicians - what a treat!  As always, we have to thank our administrative staff for helping CRC in every way they can.  It takes a village and the kids are worth it! 

10th Annual Dodgeball Tournament! 

Thank you students and parents for making the 10th Annual Dodgeball Tournament a success!  Special thanks to the CRC committee for putting in so much time planning, organizing and working so hard  to make the two nights fun and exciting; to the Dads that volunteered their nights to ref the games – you all are amazing; and a big shout out to the students who worked the games and did everything and anything we asked of them. Dodgeball could not be possible without all of these wonderful volunteers!
