 "Love, Learn, Lead Together"

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

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

These changes address the requirement for the child passenger restraint system in motor vehicles in California.
