Gotha Update 9/26/2022

Hello Gotha Families! 


I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful weekend.  Tonight I have some information about Student Government, our PTO Booster Bash Fundraiser and our 2nd Annual School Spirit Video as well as the Gotha Family Literacy Focus of the Week, Code of Conduct Reminder and a schedule of what’s going on at the school this week!

Our Gotha Student Government Association had a general interest meeting this past Tuesday.  The deadline to apply for a SGA office is Monday September 26th 11:59PM.  Students can apply using this link.  Important SGA dates are attached. 

The Gotha Middle Silent Disco fundraiser will kick off this Wednesday!  Our goal is to raise $15,000 to support the school, students and staff.  Reminder to REGISTER your student with their 7th period teacher on MYBOOSTER.COM by midnight on September 27th to get 5 FREE entries into our first sweepstakes prize… a $100 Amazon Gift Card!

We are going for it again! Last year we won $1,000 for our Gotha Spirit Video submission to Healthy West Orange’s School Spirit competition! Check out last year’s video here.  We film this year’s video Friday 9/30 and want the community’s involvement.  We’ll be filming arrival in the car loop Friday morning and would LOVE to see GOTHA-RIFIC cars! Purple, teal, signs, streamers - we’re here for all of it!!!  If you’d like to film yourself talking about why you LOVE Gotha (in your Gotha Gear) we’d love that too!!! 


Our Scholastic Book fair runs from 9/26 - 9/30.  Kids can purchase books in the Media Center all week or you can shop online by clicking here!


Students have four minutes to get from class to class.  We have recently seen an increase in the number of students late to class.   Beginning next week we will be holding tardy sweeps.  The first sweep will result in lunch detention the following day.  We will have a second set of sweeps toward the end of the week.  If a kid from the first sweep shows up in the second sweep, it will result in a Wednesday detention on 10/5.  We will repeat these sweeps as needed.  When they are late to class they are missing important instructional time.  


Monday 9/26 - 5:00 Soccer Away vs. Westridge MS

Wednesday 9/28 - Silent Disco Fundraiser KICKOFF!  If we meet our goal, I’ve agreed to be turned into a human ice cream sundae! 

Friday 9/30 - 6:00 8th Grade Band Night @ Olympia HS


For students interested in trying out for our Grizzly Volleyball team, tryouts will begin during the week of October 10th with specific dates to be announced soon. Athletes MUST have their COMPLETED athletic packet turned into the main office by September 30th @ 4:00 P.M or they will not be permitted to try out.  If you have any questions please reach out to Mrs. Davis- Athletic Director @ [email protected] 

Consider helping us out by donating to our foundation page.  Your donations go directly back to the kids in the form of incentives and events!  

Our 2022-23 Gotha Yearbooks are already for sale and RIGHT NOW they are the cheapest they will be all year.  Click here to go to our Gotha MS website where you can order books, buy ads for your favorite Gotha student and upload pictures!  If you do not want your student’s photo included in the yearbook, please contact Ms. Miller at [email protected]
