It’s hard to believe that the second quarter of school is upon us. The teachers and students have established their classroom routines, determined their academic goals, and have set forth on this year’s journey of deep learning. One only has to walk down the hallways and pause in front of classrooms to feel the tangible energy of student engagement and collaboration as they participate in various instructional tasks.
With this image in mind, it is with great pride that I share the news that Goudy has once again achieved Level 1+ status which defines us as a school of excellence! Congratulations to our Goudy community for accomplishing this remarkable achievement.
Please feel welcome to attend the LSC meeting on November 9th at 5:15 in the auditorium. During the meeting I will present the annual Goudy State of the School Address and further explain our School Quality Rating Report.
Mark your calendars for the additional following November events:
