Welcome to Gotha Middle School!

Gotha Update - Week of 12/6/2021

Monica Emery

Hello, Gotha families!  

I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend.  We have a lengthy update this week as we're heading into the end of the first semester.   

We’d like to give each student a pair of fuzzy socks this holiday season! Hopefully they will enjoy wearing them and smile when they think about their school community and know they are loved.  Thank  you to all of those who’ve donated socks already.  To date, we have over 100 pairs.  We need approximately 1,100 pairs, so spread the word!  The socks do not need to be holiday themed.  If you are shopping, fuzzy socks can be given to Mr. Zanegood at the front desk.  Click here for a fuzzy sock Amazon wish list!   The School Pay option is now open for small donations.  Even $1 will help!
