A Word from the Principal...

Summer Camp Forum

Stop in at the Summer Camp Forum to find out about summer camps being offered this summer. It's a great way to find out about what will be offered for the kids for the summer months. Event is Tuesday, March 21 at 6:00 p.m. in the Goodwin School Gym.

Eating on Buses

Some students have been eating, trading, or sharing food on bus rides. As always we need to be conservative with when and where children eat. Some students have food allergies, but also this could be potentially dangerous for any child as it poses a choking hazard.

Change of Bus Requests

We love to accommodate our families and we take great pride in being friendly and flexible.  It is quite difficult to argue that our front office team isn’t great.  Unfortunately, the number of requests we are receiving each day to change buses has become unmanageable.  So, we are going to streamline our process.

Requests we can meet: Having your child take another bus for daycare purposes – please give us at least a days notice. Students attending homework club at St. Paul’s Church.

Requests we can’t meet:  A group of students going to another location for a party, playdate, club meeting, etc. Requests made after 1:00. Change in dismissal plans from pickup to bus or vice versa after 1:00


It is our goal to be 100% accurate with getting students to their correct locations.  

Climate Corner

Accept that change is a part of living. Change often can be scary for children and teens. Help your child see that change is a part of life and new goals can replace goals that have become attainable.

Bus Identification Tags

We are always looking to improve our routines and procedures at Goodwin School.  Dismissal time is a very busy time and there is no room for error when getting students on the right buses.  Often our youngest students need help.  In order to facilitate this process, we are securing luggage tags to all Early Childhood and Kindergarten students’ backpacks.  The letter of their bus is listed on the label.

Applications are now available in the Goodwin School office. Applications are due by Friday, March 31, 2017.
