eThe purpose of TGIF Gomes is to promote the interests of gifted and talented students in Gomes Elementary by encouraging the fullest development of their potential at home and at school and providing encouragement and being a source of information to parents and educators of gifted and talented children in the Fremont, California public schools.

This is a parent run volunteer organization and if you would like to volunteer, please click to contact the TGIF Gomes Director. We would also like to thank Mr. Whipple, Principal of Gomes Elementary School, for supporting us in this endeavor. 

Message from Mr. Whipple, Principal of Gomes Elementary School:

There is a critical need to provide more opportunities for our GATE students at Gomes Elementary. I am happy to report that the school has been in the process of working with parents of gifted students and district personnel to establish a series of after-school courses for GATE students. 

As the principal, I am grateful for parents who have stepped up to organize this program here at Gomes. Through the guidance of TGIF and help from other elementary schools Gomes will now offer sessions for GATE students to improve and enrich their knowledge. 
This will be the first year for us here at Gomes to be a satellite school site or an SSS. That means we offer courses that our GATE students take.

Thank you from me to the many hours that have been spent and will be spent on behalf of our Gomes GATE students.
