Welcome to Gouge Elementary!

Our Mission:

“To provide a safe and nurturing environment, where students develop positive self-concepts, empathy, respect, problem-solving and critical thinking skills. To inspire students to produce quality performances and products by incorporating basic skills, technology, and the arts, thus empowering students to contribute positively within our global society.”

There will be no school on Monday, November 12th. We will be observing the Veteran's Day holiday.

The Gouge Faculty and Staff would like to thank all of our Veteran's and current Service men and women for your bravery, courage and love of our country!!
