Dear Parents and Guardians,

Ready, get set Gomes!  Congratulations!  This school year you and your family will become part of the 2014-2015 Gomes family!  You, as parents and we, as the Gomes teachers and staff have a mutual obligation to help the students at Gomes prepare themselves for a successful future.

I read a passage where a world leader said that a school is not “a parking garage”, where students are simply dropped off.  “School is a place of encounter along our journey….At school we are ‘socialized’.  We meet people who are different from us, different in age, culture, origin, and ability.”  Families and schools should never be in opposition, but they must work together for the good of the child.

In the end, I agree with the world leader I previously quoted because I want each student at Gomes to mature and graduate speaking “three languages:  the language of the mind, the language of the heart and the language of the hands”.

Welcome and best wishes to all!  I hope this will be your most successful year ever. 

 

                                        - Mr. Whipple

 

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

On the first day of school, a large white envelope containing several important documents will be sent home with your child.  This information and forms require your immediate attention.  The front of the envelope will serve as a handy check-off list.  It is critical that these completed forms be returned in the large white envelope by Friday, August 29.

 Effective July 1, 2013, the Office of Pupil Services will be officially known as the Office of Student Support Services (SSS).  The SSS will include the Language Assessment Center (LAC) and School Nurses, as well as the new Centralized Enrollment Center (CEC).  Due to these changes, the enrollment process for new Transitional Kindergarten (TK) – 6th grade students will be conducted in the new Centralized Enrollment Center effective July 8, 2013.  Therefore, elementary school enrollment will end on Friday, June 14, 2013 and elementary schools will no longer enroll new students for the 2013/14 school.    For further information, please call (510) 657-2350 after June 17, 2013 and ask for the Centralized Enrollment Center.

 

These changes address the requirement for the child passenger restraint system in motor vehicles in California. This change now requires that “….a driver shall not transport on a highway in a motor vehicle, as defined in paragraph (1) of subdivision (3) of section 27315, a child or ward who is under eight years of age, meeting applicable federal motor vehicle safety standards.without properly securing that child in a rear seat in an appropriate child passenger restraint system

A Celebration of Life for Greg will be on Saturday, August 30th at 9:00 a.m. at Natural Bridges State Beach in Santa Cruz. 

 

A couple of things to keep in mind:

1.  Come as early as you can as those travelling on Highway 17 and other approaching  highways will encounter heavy traffic.

2.  Carpool as much as possible.

3.  Approach the site from the back - Park on Delaware Avenue or Natural Bridge Drive.  Parking is free and only a short walk to the site.  Do NOT park on Swanton.  There is paid parking on the front entrance on W. Cliff.

4.  Alcohol is prohibited at the beach site.

 

 

The family appreciates your love and support and looks forward to celebrating Greg with you.

Dear Gomes Community,

All of us at Gomes are shocked and deeply saddened by the tragic death of Greg Muck.  His presence will be sorely missed.  He was liked and respected by all those who knew him.  The students who were in his class have been profoundly touched by this tragedy.
 
We can all take some solace in the good and lasting work that Greg did in his too-brief lifetime.  The results of his outstanding teaching and his beneficial influence on students will live on.
 
If you wish to send your condolences to the family, you may drop off correspondence at the office and it will be forwarded.
 
Sincerely,
 
Gomes School Staff
