Mission: To lead our students to success with the support and involvement of families and the community.



Hello, Gotha Families.  Here is your Gotha update for the week October 15, 2018!  

We will be handing out the student IDs the week of October 22nd.  If your student has a lanyard they would like to use, please have them bring it starting Monday the 22nd.  We will have Gotha lanyards, courtesy of our PTO, available if they do not already have one. Students without visible IDs will receive a consequence, much like they do for being tardy.  

For the rest of the month, we will continue participating in the Middle School Kindness Challenge.  You can go to and click on PARENTS AND FAMILIES to see ways you can participate at home.  As part of the challenge, our sock drive continues through Friday the 19th to support Socktober.  Please consider donating a new pair of socks to be donated to a local homeless shelter. The first period class that collects the highest number of socks will star in their very own Fun Friday Video.  

If your student is running for a seat on our Student Government, the application, statement of character, and candidate intent to run form are due NO LATER than Friday the 19th.  

Tuesday we begin quarter two.  Quarter one report cards will be distributed October 29th.  Students with NO Ds and Fs will be allowed to participate in FLIP FLOP FRIDAY on November 2nd.  Please make sure you are checking Progressbook to monitor your student’s grades.

Please continue to talk with your students about getting to class on time.  Tardies in each grade level were up last week. Eighth grade parents, students will not be allowed to attend the 8th Grade Dance if they are on a tardy contract.  Information regarding the 8th Grade Behavior Contract can be seen here:

Please remember that students phones should be off and concealed throughout the school day.  If you need to reach your student, please contact the school directly. You also should have received a call from our School Resource Officer, Master Deputy Luna, last week.  Dropping off or picking up your student on Gotha Road or from the parking lot are serious safety concerns. Please drop off and pick up from the sidewalk in front of the school entrance, along the cafeteria and gym side of the building ONLY.
