Gotha Update - Week of 1/20/2020

Hello, Gotha Families.  Here is your update for the week of January 20, 2020. 

Our iReady Lab is now open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:45 - 9:20 in the Media Center.  This lab time will provide additional practice for students in Reading and Math. Students will need to have their laptops.   Please complete the survey linked below if you would like your student to participate. Students will need to check in at the front office and sign in at the Media Center when they arrive in the morning.  

The Florida Department of Education requires that students receive instruction in Health Education every year. A minimum of five hours of required instruction related to mental and emotional health for students in grades 6-12 is required for the 2019-2020 school year. In order to comply with this requirement, OCPS has designated five Wednesday schedules which will be implemented on Feb. 4th, 11th, 20th, 25th and 27th. Your child will be given a letter with more detailed information Tuesday January 21, 2020. If you have any questions please contact school administration.

Kickball intramurals start up this Wednesday morning!  All students at Gotha can participate in Intramurals. Students compete against classmates, on our campus each week. Students do not have to attend every Tuesday to participate but the more they attend the better they will get. No sports physical is required and the program is free.  All students will need to arrive by 8:15 in order to participate that day. The doors will close at 8:15 so that activities can get started promptly. If you have any questions, please e-mail Coach Davis at

It’s that time again when we are looking for some feedback from our parents.  Please take a moment to provide us with information that we can use to see what we are doing well and what we can do better!  Parents will be prompted to select the school before beginning the survey. 


Monday 1/20 - NO SCHOOL
Tuesday 1/21 - Olympia Parent Night - 8th Grade Parents Only
Wednesday 1/22 - Home Basketball vs. Chain of Lakes (remember students must have a school ID and must be picked up by 7:30pm or as soon as the games are finished)
