Gotha Update - Week of 1/24/2022

Monica Emery

Hello, Gotha families!  

What a chilly weekend!  Please remember that students should not be dropped off prior to 9:00 each morning.  This is even more important on these colder days, as we do not want students waiting outside in the cold.

Get your student’s yearbook now!  Yearbooks can be purchased online by visiting our website.  

The Foundation for Orange County Public Schools proudly announces Top Talent 2022 and will be accepting Top Talent applications for performing arts now through January 31, 2022.  Proceeds from this event benefit the Foundation and provide arts enrichment for students experiencing poverty or homelessness.   The TopTalent Virtual “live” event will be held, Friday, May 6, 2022.  Applications, waivers, rules and regulations and an audition “Tip Sheet” can be found at  Check out this video!  

Top Talent 2022- Accepting Performing Arts Applications

Monday is our 100th Day of School!  Students who creatively represent 100 days of school on Monday will be entered into a raffle for prizes! Students will also be able to take DAY 100 selfies at lunch.

January 24-28th is Celebrate Literacy Week.  Students will be participating in different activities in their classes throughout the week.  School wide, we will have a Drop Everything and Read period on Thursday the 27th after 6th period.  Encourage your student to check out a book from the school or public library and bring it in on Thursday as we read as a school.  The bell schedule for that day can be found here.  We’re also have a school wide Literacy Week 2022 BINGO.pdf !  Consider completing the game as a family throughout the week.  Students can turn the finished game into their Language Arts teacher or to Ms. Emery!

Drop Everything and Read Bell Schedule 

Our first home basketball games are this week.  Please note that students must bring their student ID in order to enter the game.  Any student who has received a level 3 or 4 discipline infraction will not be admitted.  Students who attend are expected to be picked up as soon as the games are finished.  Students not picked up in a timely manner may not be able to attend future events.
