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
Gomes School Staff
Dear Parents and Guardians,
As the school year comes to a close and Gomes gets to the CORE of things, I have to say that we have outstanding school programs and a dedicated staff which continue to bring praise and recognition to our school. But, I also want to thank the Gomes parents and families for your support and service to students of Gomes. Thank you for demonstrating to your child how important school is by taking the time off from your important work and busy schedule to volunteer. Thank you for being a partner instilling a love of learning and investing in your student’s future.
I just read about a world leader who said, “A school is not a ‘parking garage’, where parents simply drop off their children. It 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 school should never be in opposition, but they must work together for the good of the child. Schools educate us about truth, goodness and beauty, which all go together.”
Gomes has been recognized again, this year, as a California Distinguished School. Gomes is a distinguished place where many distinguished people share their love for children. Thank you to all for making Gomes a distinguished school.
- Mr. Whipple

HELP DESIGN SCHOOLS OF THE FUTURE
Fremont schools are among the highest performing schools in the area. We work hard to provide our students the best learning environment with our limited facilities budget. Many of our schools are in need a major repair and modernization to prepare students for a 21st century education. On January 23, 2013, the Board of Education approved the development of a Long Range Facilities Plan (LRFP) to guide facilities decisions for the next decade. The plan will help us make decisions about how to best use our funds and explore other funding sources such as a school bond campaign in 2014. Click HERE for more information.
