APU Holds Barbecue for G.A.T.E. Participants and Families

by Mandy Welch '04

With the G.A.T.E. summer programat APU coming to an end, there was one last event for parents. Friends and family were invited to APU’s West Campus for a tour and barbecue. It was a time for students to exhibit what they learned and for parents to see the campus and the classrooms their children used.

Students played while parents visited with other parents and APU representatives. “I liked going to school here at APU,” said Jamie Alvarez, a Magnolia Elementary student. “I went to classes when they were at Magnolia, but I like it here better because it’s more fun to see all the classrooms and people."
