It is a pleasure to welcome you to our website. We hope that Goose Creek Primary will be a successful and satisfying place for you.
Close cooperation between families and the school is essential to promote the best interest of the child. We encourage parents and community members to visit the school and attend scheduled meetings of parents and teachers. Everyone benefits when there is a meaningful exchange of information between home and school.
We at Goose Creek Primary look forward to a challenging and rewarding year of teamwork for our students. We thank you for entrusting us with your children and for being a part of our team.
The faculty and staff at GCP appreciate hearing from involved parents on issues concerning student achievement. We have placed a suggestion box in the front office as a convenient way for busy parents to share suggestions for school improvement. Just drop your written suggestion in our box with your name, child’s teacher’s name, and your phone number or email address. A member of our school team will respond to your suggestion within 5 working days. We thank you for supporting your child’s education.
OneBerkeley Connects: Parent University Sessions
The goal of OneBerkeley Connects, a one-to-one digital learning initiative, is to support every student in their educational journey by providing them with a Chromebook Device to be used both at school and at home. Parents will need to attend an information session (Parent University- 1:1 Deployment) at their child's school to watch a short video about the initiative and review user agreement forms before students may begin taking home the assigned Chromebook device. Please contact your child's school to receive dates and times for upcoming Parent University opportunities.
