"All the Gym's a Stage" Gym Makeover Campaign

Art, music, drama are crucial to children's growth and well-being. For many, they are the lifelines that nurture unique talents, build confidence, and promote positive feelings about school.

Goethe's incredible teachers equip and motivate our children to excel in the performing arts. Help us equip our gymnasium so we have a stage worthy of their efforts!

We are asking parents, alumni, neighbors, and local businesses to donate to "All the Gym's a stage" campaign. An anonymous donor has provided funds to match contributions 3 to 1. That means a $10 donation turns into $40 for the gym.

Make Movie Night Happen!

We asked; you answered! Movie night won by a landslide. Now we need your help to make it happen!

Please join us for a meeting that will be focused on planning Goethe's community movie night on Tuesday January 27th at 6:30 at Goethe. We need YOU to make this happen. With a group of people to plan and share the work this will be a fun event to bring our families together. But without your help, we won't be able to pull this off.

So, see you Tuesday the 27th at 6:30.

New Spanish Class Schedule

Next semester's Spanish class schedule has been adjusted to accommodate Primary Colors and Karate. Unfortunately, the older kids will still have class on Thursdays because of limited teacher availability this late in the year.

Here is the new schedule:

*PreK to 1st grade - Mondays and Wednesdays

*2nd to 3rd grade - Wednesdays and Thursdays

If you have any questions, please contact Carla Viteri of Instituto Cervantes at cervanteskids@cervantes.org or Goethe parent Amanda Yarusso at amanda.yarusso@gmail.com.
