Welcome

Principal's Note

Mildred Goss Elementary is a great neighborhood school. Our history of impressive growth, our talented staff, and the many programs for our students set Goss apart as a special place for kids.

Academic success for our students depends on the hard work of the students themselves, their families, the school staff, and the larger community. We all work together every day to improve teaching and learning. We are doing great things at Goss and we need your help to continue to improve. The office and every classroom has a volunteer binder for parents to sign in when volunteering at school. Our goal is that each family volunteers at least 30 hours per year. Ask your child's teacher or our office for ways you can participate and earn hours.

As we near the end of the first quarter we invite the parents of every child to to set a parent teacher conference with your child's teacher.  We expect our teachers to meet with the family of every single child in their class.  It is important to us that you are aware of the progress that your child is making in every curricular area.  
 
Our continuous improvement efforts are all based on the correlates of effective schools:

1. A Clear and Focused Vision

2. High Expectations for All

3. Safe and Orderly Environment

4. Strong Instructional Leadership

5. Close Cooperation with Families and the Community

6. Student Engagement and Time on Task

7. Ongoing Monitoring of Student Progress

This website is designed to provide you with easy access to school information. I encourage you to spend time exploring our school webpage to learn about many wonderful programs we have at Goss.

I would like to invite you to our twice-monthly "Coffee with the Principal" where you will have the opportunity to ask questions about our school. See the most recent bulletin for the date of the next scheduled coffee time.

Please feel free to drop by the school for a visit anytime. The talented and friendly support staff at Goss are at your service.

You can reach me at (408) 928-7656.
 
Sincerely,
Principal
