Welcome Carrie Gosch Families,
The summer months have gone by so quickly. Hopefully you had time to enjoy activities with your children. Last year we had many accomplishments. Our students learned about science and worked together in partner classes to read, and work on Character Plus activities. Character Plus is a positive youth development program that is based on the universal principle of the need for emotional health. Last year was our first year of implementing Character Plus. This year we will expand our Character Plus activities. Teachers will incorporate more science and non-fiction reading into our daily routine. We have some exciting trips and activities planned around Character Plus and our science themes. These activities have been designed to capture our student's interest so that they can learn more concepts.
Additional achievements for Gosch, last year, were the three students who were selected to go to West Point. Also, our boys and girls participated in a mentoring program with the East Chicago Police Department. The boys basketball team played several games and won all of the games played against our East Chicago Elementary Schools. Many of our students grew socially and academically last year.
This school year we are relocating our school to West Side School. Our district has made the decision to move in the interest of our families. Although we have been cleared to remain at Gosch, our Superintendent felt that we could ease everyone's mind by relocating. Our staff is working to prepare our new home for our first day of school on August 15, 2016. Busses will pick up the students at the bus stop at 7:45 AM. Our doors will open for breakfast at 7:50 AM. Dismissal will be at 3:10 PM. Bus stop locations will be distributed very soon.
Our dedicated staff and faculty are extremely excited and highly motivated to continue our mission of Learning for All...Whatever It Takes, as we embrace our new vision of Learning and Caring. We look forward to seeing you next week on Monday August 15, 2016.
Mrs. E. Glenn
