Gotha Update - Week of 2/17/2020

Hello, Gotha Families.  This is Monica Emery, the principal of Gotha Middle School with your update for the week of February 17, 2020. 

I’m excited to announce that a chapter of ALL PRO DAD will be starting at our school!  All Pro Dad chapters provide an opportunity for dads to spend quality time with their children. The first meeting is Wednesday February 26th at 8:00am in our Media Center.  Team up with other kids and dads at our school for a quick, fun breakfast. Dads will take away some great tips and resources that will help strengthen their relationship, as well as benefit the entire community.  Dads can RSVP and get more information at If you have any questions, please contact Alex Lawrence at

The Florida Department of Education requires that students receive five hours of instruction every year related to mental and emotional health for students in grades 6-12. The third lesson will be on Thursday the 20th.  The bell schedule for Thursday can be found here MS Bell Schedule MHP 20191217.pdf ​​​​​​​. If you have any questions please contact the school administration.
