About Gwyn-Nor Elementary


Who is Gwyn-Nor Elementary?

Gwyn-Nor Elementary School is one of 13 elementary schools in the North Penn School District. Gwyn-Nor’s Mission is to provide a foundation of excellence where all students will have opportunities to achieve their academic, social, physical, and emotional potential. Our atmosphere will encourage creative self-expression and respect for the value, dignity, and diversity of each individual.

Effective instructional practices and goals will be set in collaboration with parents and the community. We will provide a safe, caring, and nurturing environment, which inspires students to become life-long learners who can adapt to changes which will occur within their lifetimes.


What is the Home & School Association?

The Gwyn-Nor H&S is a nonprofit, charitable organization operating under a 501(c)(3). H&S is a valued channel that links Gwyn-Nor families and staff, uniting the home and school under the common goal of creating a better educational experience for students. H&S fosters this crucial connection by fully funding field trips and transportation, assemblies, special events, and educational initiatives, as well as providing numerous social events throughout the year. It costs H&S about $65 per student a year to execute all of its programs.

Gwyn-Nor H&S is a volunteer-run organization and does not require families to pay a fee in order to participate. H&S operates solely on fundraising and voluntary family-paid fees. 


What is The Gator Gateway?

We realize our families and school staff are busy! We created "The Gator Gateway" to serve as the digital payment portal that allows our families to conveniently remit payment for anything related to Gwyn-Nor Home & School. 

Families can register for "paid" events and activities, pay fees, contribute to various donation funds, register for after school clubs, purchase Spiritwear, etc. Families can still send papers back to school with their students, but the online payment portal offers an easy, all-digital option that replaces checks and cash for most initiatives.
