A Departing Word From Our Interim Principal, Dr. Ortega
Dear Gooch Parents;
Thank you for the opportunity to work with your students and the Gooch staff. Today will be my last day as Interim Principal here at Gooch. I have enjoyed my time here. I wish you and your students continued success and well being.

Many thanks to all the generous parents who donated money to the Teacher Holiday party fund. We were able to hold a holiday party with karaoke, and a wonderful time was had by all. There was some extra money which went to purchase a collective holiday gift for the staff of a Keurig coffee machine and plenty of supplies for the Teacher's Lounge. I think we can all agree that caffeinated teachers are better teachers!
We have some great fun and educational events coming up - come and support your student.
