Welcome – Willkommen – Bienvenidos
Welcome to our Goethe International Charter School (GICS) community! We are thrilled to have you here. Our school is a very special place with extraordinary teachers, who will be providing the children with the benefits of a bilingual immersion education in conjunction with the International Baccalaureate teaching framework.
One of the most important qualities of any successful charter school is the creation of an actively involved parent community. At GICS, we have parents from all over the world, who speak many different languages at home, with mixed cultures and traditions, all committed to giving their children a ground-breaking, high-quality education.
Each of our parents is automatically a voting member of the Goethe Parent Association (GPA), meaning each parent has the right to run for a GPA Board position and to vote in the end of the year GPA Board elections.
The GPA is YOUR forum to share opinions, concerns, volunteer for community events, and connect with other parents. Your elected GPA Board will be holding monthly meetings and we strongly encourage each parent to attend these meetings. The more input we have from you, the better we can represent your interests and help create a school and community we all want for our children.
Our meetings are held on the Marina del Rey Middle School campus every first Friday of a month at 8:15 AM right after the Goethe Café. We will provide a thoughtful agenda to make attending the meetings as easy as possible for all of our GPA members.
Please contact the GPA at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or comments.
