A Word From Our Interim Principal, Dr. Ortega
Dear Gooch Parents;
I appreciate the opportunity to serve as Interim Principal at Gooch Elementary School. I look forward to a rewarding time here.
Currently, we are preparing for our Assessment of Course Performance (ACP) exams which will begin the week of December 12th. Please look for a calendar from us with specific dates for grade levels and content.
Following those, we will be looking forward to our December Break. The last day of classes for students will be December 19th. Students will return on January 8, 2019.
I look forward to continuing my work with the Gooch school community.

What's Been Happening at Gooch
Fun Run with Chapel Hill Preparatory
Planting a Wildflower Garden as a part of the Saturday School Environmental Science Club
The Gooch Gators PTSA has been busy in the past month supporting the school and raising money. We have supporting teacher morale with a coffee cart delivering delicious treats to the classroom.
The Fun Run was a fun fundraiser, contributing $796 to our fund to pay for Bloomz, our great communication app. Our total goal to fundraise for Bloomz is $3006, so we are on our way! A huge congratulations to Aliza Peterson 4A who raised the most money during the Fun Run.
We are planning for our winter celebrations on December 19th - save the date! There will be the Penguin Patch, a winter performance, and many crafts and fun activities with Holidays Around the World.
