Here's what's coming...

Check out the 2017 Governor's Summer Reading Challenge:

Thank you to Chris Kelley and our many parent volunteers for making wellness day a huge success. The weather was beautiful and the kids had a wonderful time as they participated in the organized activities. The kids tracked over 335 combined miles on their fitness walk. The picture perfect day finished up with a popsicle treat for all of the kids.

Often times, districts are faced with filling positions when teachers are unable to be present.  Sometimes the positons need to be filled for an extended period of time and we are so very fortunate to have strong long term substitutes.  This year Kevin Spedding (Art) and Sherrie Eguren (Library) have been awesome supports.  They both are strong communicators and have a love for children.  Due to state regulations, a long-term sub can only stay in a placement for a period of time, therefore it was necessary for each of them to complete their assignments.  In order to finish out the year, we simply had them swap positions.  Mr. Spedding will finish out the school year in the library and Mrs. Eguren will finish out the year in the art room.  They are supporting each other in this transition.  We are most appreciative of their dedication to our children.

Friday, May 19th, we celebrated our final Goodwin Gathering of the year.  The audience participated in songs and the Goodwin Strings performed.  Michael Bowker shared a story and Mia Hanover shared a song.  The Brownies talked about their Pet Badges and the students heard about an exciting fall STEM activity.  Fun was had by all. 

The last day for book check out will be Friday, May 26th. Please take some time to look around and return all outstanding books to the library before the end of school.
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.
