Gotha Update - Week of May 17, 2021

Hello Gotha Families - 

Here is your update for the week of May 17, 2021.

This week we finish up with our common final exams.  [email protected] students do not have to be on campus to take those exams.  The testing block is from 9:30 - 11:00.  The students resume a normal schedule after testing with shortened class periods.

Monday - Students report to 2nd period
Tuesday - Students report to 3rd period
Wednesday - Students report to 4th period
Thursday - Students report to 5th period
Friday - Students report to 6th period  

If your child has participated in the Orange Tips Program, they will now have an opportunity to attend the Orange Tips free virtual summer camp.   This, (free), all-virtual experience will run June 7-11, with LIVE sessions along with Canvas activities to help students plan for their future college and career. The Orange Tips Camp session will include virtual visits to colleges and live Q & A's with guest speakers. Students will also have the opportunity to compete in a daily challenge in Canvas. Please contact Ms. Jody Bernier, our 7th grade counselor for information. Once registration is closed, a detailed camp schedule will be sent to registered participants. 

If your student has an instrument at home that needs to be returned to the school, please begin making plans to return the instrument between 5/13- 5/21, Monday through Friday between 8:30 and 4:00.

If you previously purchased a yearbook for your student, that yearbook can be picked up at the front desk.  We are also still selling yearbooks for $40, first come first serve.  LE students can purchase a yearbook at the front office.  F2F students can purchase a yearbook before school from 9:00-9:20am. 

This Friday we are holding a time capsule ceremony.  Students have been writing short narratives about what this year has meant to them.  The time capsule will be buried and commemorated with a plaque asking future Gotha students and staff to open it in 15 years.  That event will be live streamed via the Gotha Student Body page on Canvas.  The ceremony will begin at 2:10.  It will also be recorded for families to enjoy at a later time.
