Goethe's 5th Annual Fundraiser at Quenchers

The Goethe Elementary School's Fundraising Committee is holding our fifth annual fundraising event at Quencher's Saloon on Friday, April 17th from 6:00pm-9:00pm. This is a community event to raise money to improve and support Goethe's burgeoning theater program.
Over 150 friends of Goethe and neighbors attended the event last year.  We will have karaoke from the year you graduated, as well as raffle prizes and a live auction!
$20 (online price) - includes 2 drinks and food!  Tickets are $25 at the door.
If you are not able to attend, please consider buying a ticket so a teacher can go for free. When purchasing a ticket for a teacher, please type "Teacher Ticket" in the name field.
We're looking for volunteers to help get donations for the raffle from local businesses and work the door.  Sign-up here to volunteer: www.SignUpGenius.com/go/10C0545A9A623A1F85-5thannual1/234106.



"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.

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.
