Hometown School Newsletter
November 16th, 2021
I would like to take this time to wish all of our Hometown families a Happy Thanksgiving. We do not have any classes next week. Enjoy the time with family and friends. I know that I am thankful for all of the support each family has given the school and our staff.
Each family that has turned in their turkey project has gone above and beyond! I am not sure how we will vote on the best one! I have placed a few in the newsletter for all to see.
As the weather is changing, please remember to send your children with coats and hats. We will be going out for recess if the weather is 32 degrees or above.

Teacher Spotlight: Ms. Amy Gomez
Meet Our Staff
How long and what grades have you taught?
I have been teaching for 23 years. I have taught 3rd grade, preschool, and kindergarten.
Kindergarten is my favorite!
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why?
I would love to travel to Italy to see the beautiful scenery and eat the delicious food!
What is the best thing about working at Hometown?
I actually did my student teaching at Hometown School 23 years ago and loved it here because of the families and students. Mrs. McCormick retired 5 years ago and it was an honor to replace her and return to the place where my first teaching experience started.
What is your favorite food?
Of course, pasta! The first thing I would order after arriving in Italy!
Who is someone you admire and why?
I admire my parents. They raised my siblings and I and always put us first. They continue to love and support me and are the best grandparents to my two daughters, Ava and Mia. I don't know what I would do without them!
If you see Ms. Gomez around our school ,make sure you say hello!!!
These lovely ladies are all ready for Christmas.
