Dear Gomes Parents,

Make note of the following important dates for your Gomes students next school year. Watch out for a postcard in your mailbox with more information and times.

  • Friday, August 17: Pick up your White Packets (filled with emergency forms and other important items) at Gomes drive-through
  • Wednesday, August 22: Maze Day (return forms from White Packets and receive classroom assignments. It will be an improved experience from last year.) 

A Note from Your PTA President

It's been my pleasure to serve as your PTA president this year. THANKS for making this school year a wonderful and memorable year for all Gomes Gophers. Give yourself a big round of applause! To our graduating 6th graders, I congratulate you for achieving a milestone in your life and wish you all the best in middle school. To all Gomes community, I wish you have a wonderful summer and take the break to rejuvenate yourself.

-- Nelly Chong, Gomes PTA President, 2017-2018

Summer Readers, Start Reading!

Travel through space and join the 33rd annual Gomes Summer Reader program! Read every day this summer, fill out the form, and return it to your teacher in the fall. In addition, the Alameda County Library is  forgiving fines for overdue books in June and July, so go to the library and get more books to read this summer!
