Message from principal Gallant

Message from principal

Dear Gomes School Families and Community,

Thank you for visiting our website, and welcome to The Alfred J. Gomes Elementary School!

In the unprecedented times of the 2020-2021 school year, there are two things we know for certain:

#1 This year will be different than any school year in the history of our school, district and country; and

#2 Our families and students can still count on Gomes as being a place of community and support!

School may look different this year with online and hybrid learning but what will never change is our commitment to serving our students, families, and community with care, compassion, perseverance, and dedication.

We call our community the “Gomes School Family” because we want our school family to be an extension of your family. We want to serve you in times of joy, happiness, and triumph, but also in times of challenge, grief, and struggle. Academic learning and growth are our bottom line, yet we also understand that educating students means being attentive to the “whole child” and caring about their social and emotional well-being.

Our teachers and staff are dedicated to providing your child with the best educational experience throughout their time at Gomes School. We value having parents/ guardians as partners, contributing to your child learning, growth, and development as well as to our positive school culture.

Please visit The Gomes School Facebook page as well as the NBPS Facebook page. We update these pages regularly with updates and important information.

Our website is also a valuable source of information. Every message that we send out to families can be found on our website, along with our newsletters and other important information.

The Alfred J. Gomes Elementary School is a place of learning, belonging, growth, and support for students, families, and community where we ALL strive to demonstrate Safe, Kind, Respectful and Responsible behaviors each and every day. Thank you for being a part of our community and school!
