Gomes News 

Gomes school students wrote persuasive essays to our Principal, Mrs. Gallant and our Superintendent, Mr. Anderson to convince them to allow a therapy dog at our school. Thanks to their hard work, as well as the support of Mrs. Furtado, Mrs. Cabral, and Mrs. Gallant Gomes School is the first school in New Bedford to have a therapy dog (Thank you Ms. Olsen and Maize!) visit weekly for students to enjoy! You may have seen them at our last carnival. Read more about it here

Gomes Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month

September 15th - October 15th

 Thank you to our amazing bilingual community readers and everyone who made our Hispanic Heritage Celebration so fantastic! 

Thank you Superflat NB and artist Jacob Ginga who brought the vision of our students to life with this stunning mural! The beautiful and colorful butterflies highlights the different cultures that our students come from and reflect the migration of many of our families, while the ocean waves represent the connections that we all share with each other.

We want to serve you in times of joy, happiness, and triumph, but also in times of challenge, grief, and struggle.

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.
