Gotha Update - Week of November 18, 2019

Hello, Gotha Families.  Here is your update for the week of November 18, 2019.

Thank you to all of our Gotha families who donated food items last week.  Each day I was overwhelmed by your generosity.  I know many of our Gotha families are going to be extremely thankful this holiday season.  Thank you to our PTO for organizing the food drive and spending so much time collecting the items.  

On Tuesday Olympia High School principal, Guy Swenson, will be hosting a Gotha Parent Academy - Vaping and Cell Phone Safety - What Parents Need to Know - in our cafeteria.  I look forward to seeing parents there to hear about how to help our students manage these difficult pressures. Thank you to our PTO for bringing this important information to our school.

Wednesday our PTO is hosting our first Gotha Spirit Night of the year at BurgerFi from 5:00 - 9:00.  Who wants to SKIP cooking dinner! I know I do.
BurgerFi will donate 15% of the proceeds back to our PTO.

Our GMS Intramurals will continue on Tuesday December 10th with KICKBALL! 
We’d love to see kids come out before school to have some fun!

All physicals need to be turned in by January 7TH @ 12:00 NOON in order to try out. The packet can be found @ under important links.
