Gotha Update - Week of October 26, 2020

Hello Gotha Families - 

Here is your update for the week of October 26, 2020.

Thank you for your patience as we worked to balance classes.  I hope all students who experienced a change are getting settled into their new classrooms with their new teachers.

Our guidance counselors have begun their weekly intervention days for LaunchEd students who are struggling with completing assignments and understanding content. If your student needs help, please contact their teachers or grade level counselors.

Mondays - 6th Grade, Mrs. Ramsey - [email protected]
Tuesdays - 7th Grade, Ms. Bernier - [email protected]
Thursdays - 8th Grade, Mrs. Soper - [email protected]

Report cards for the first nine weeks are viewable on Skyward.  We are not mailing out report cards.  If you would like to request a report card be mailed home, please contact the school directly.

In partnership with our YMCA After School Zone, we would like to set up daily Learning Labs from 4:30 - 6:00pm.  The YMCA ASZ is a free program for families.  We are inviting our face to face and [email protected] students to participate in this face to face tutoring time on campus.  The tutoring would occur in small groups in our Media Center to ensure social distancing requirements are maintained.   Students would need to wear a mask and be signed up for the YMCA program.  Please complete the survey found by clicking of the  link below if you are interested: 

Our makeup picture day is November 6th.  Again this day will only be for our face to face students.  We hope to be able to plan for picture day for Launch students in the Spring.  

Now that we will have picture IDs for our face to face students, we are requiring students to wear them.  IDs will be handed out to those students who began the year face to face on Monday.  Please send a lanyard in with your student.  If you are unable to provide one, please let us know and we will get one for you.  

The 2020-21 Gotha Yearbooks are for sale and are currently $30. You can purchase one by going to our school website and clicking on the link to purchase a yearbook or ad under the “Important Links” section of the page. Ads are available for any 8th grade student this year, so families and friends can purchase an ad to celebrate their 8th graders’ achievements. If you do not want your student featured in this year’s yearbook, please send an email to Mrs. Miller at [email protected]

At this time OCPS has decided to resume fall sports for the 20-21 school year. It is very important to get the Athletic Packet provided here on our website FULLY completed by parents, student, and physician. Once completed, SAVE the form and HOLD UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. Do NOT turn it in to the school at this time. We are in the process of updating form submission via a new digital platform and will announce when this feature becomes available. Please WAIT for this announcement before submitting the completed packet. All OCVS, LaunchEd, and F2F students are eligible to tryout but MUST meet the GPA requirements and have an updated Athletic Packet for the 20-21 school year turned in. The Athletic Packet is different from the 7th grade Immunization form. Please contact Michelle Davis, Athletic Director, at [email protected] if you have any further questions or concerns.
