"Love, Learn, Lead Together"
Welcome to a brand new school year. All of us at John Gomes School want to make this a successful year for your child. Your active support and cooperation, combined with our best professional efforts, will ensure academic success for your child.
We are proud of our staff and students and invite you to be involved in Gomes School. There is an old African proverb which says, “It takes a whole village to raise a child.” While we no longer live in villages, this proverb still holds true. Educating our children requires that we all work together – not for our single issues, but for our greater good which is represented in our children. Children are our future – our collective survival depends on how well we nurture, love and care for them.
At John Gomes School, we take the business of loving and teaching children seriously, thus our theme this year is: “Love, Learn, Lead Together”. Each person at our school approaches his/her task with a keen understanding of the honor this is to be able to touch the future through the children.
We look forward to working together as partners in learning.
- Mr. Whipple
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
