Gotha Update for the week of January 14, 2019


Hello, Gotha Families.  Here is your update for the week of January 14, 2019.

Parents of 8th graders, the 8th Grade Dance is on February 2, 2019.  Tickets go on sale this week. Students received a permission slip last week.  The cost of the ticket is $20, however no student will be permitted to purchase a ticket without a signed permission slip.  

If your student loves Math and wants another opportunity to use those Math skills, encourage them to join the Math Club.  The first meeting is Tuesday January 15th from 4:15 - 5:15PM.

In December many of our students took OCPS District Performance Monitoring Activities in Civics, Algebra, Geometry and 8th Grade Science.  I am thrilled to report that our students outscored the district average in all four areas. I continue to be impressed by the dedication of our teachers and the commitment of our kids to really show what they know on these assessments. If your student took one or more of these assessments, they deserve a huge high five.  


We’ve started visiting our incoming 6th graders at their elementary schools.  If you know a future grizzly, share our Gotha HYPE Video with them. We’re excited to meet all of them and get them FIRED up for Gotha Middle School.

It’s time to share your thoughts about our school with the district by participating on the AdvancED Accreditation Feedback Survey.  Please take a moment to complete the survey at

Monday 1/14 - SAC Meeting 5:30 Media Center

Wednesday 1/16 - GOTHA PRIDE DAY! This Wednesday any student wearing Gotha Pride will be entered into a raffle at lunch for prizes donated by our partners in ed!

Remember to encourage your student to read nightly and complete their weekly reading journals.  

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