Mission: To lead our students to success with the support and involvement of families and the community.

 Update - Week of 4/15/19

Hello, Gotha Families.  Here is your update for the week of April 15, 2019.

We have iReady End of Year diagnostic testing in Math this week on Monday and Tuesday.  All students except for those in Algebra and geometry will participate in this diagnostic.  Students who meet their end of the year target will get a special treat in lunch next week! Your student’s Math teacher has that target and should be reviewing it with them.  

The end of the year is approaching and the kids are getting restless.  Please remind your student to maintain the focus and continue to work hard.  The only way the district will know how great we are becoming is for us to end the year strong and do our best - with iready, with FSA and EOC testing.  Please make sure the kids are getting here on time and are in dress code.

With NJHS applications due last week, many students were asking how to get community service hours.  Ms. Do and Ms. Labaw put together this list.  If your student is looking for hours, please have them consider some of these possibilities.

Teacher Appreciation Week is May 6-10. To celebrate our teachers and staff PTO is:

-requesting donations of gift cards to be used for raffle prizes during the celebration week. Any and all donations are appreciated! Suggestions are: Starbucks, Target, Walmart, Movies, Area restaurants, Panera, etc.  Please send in an envelope to the front office marked “PTO- Teacher Appreciation Week”

-Notes of Gratitude: See attached form to send a note and a special sweet treat to be delivered to a staff member that you want to celebrate during the week.   We are asking for a small contribution of $5.00 per note to help offset the costs for this week’s celebration. You can drop your note, along with the contribution, in the box marked “Staff Appreciation” in the office no later than May 7.


The PTO will be providing 3 catered lunches and a breakfast, a gift and little treats throughout the week.

Have you heard about the “summer slide?”  Students can actually lose skills and knowledge over summer break.  “Having year-round access to a wide range of interesting reading material, this and other studies conclude, helps narrow achievement gaps and prevent summer learning loss.”  Check out this article The importance of summer reading for teens . . . no, really.


Please stay connected to the school.  Follow us on Social Media. We update with information almost daily.
