Principal's Message

Dear Families and Friends,

It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year! I hope that the summer months have provided you with some rest, relaxation, and an opportunity to rejuvenate.

As usual, the Goodridge School has been a busy place this summer.  The summer staff have been busy preparing the school for another exciting year; their hard work has paid off and I am excited for the community, teachers, and students to see how wonderful the building looks.

Our annual Open House is scheduled for Wednesday August 31st from 5:30 p.m. – 8 p.m.  The Open House is a great way for students and parents to receive valuable information regarding free and reduced lunch, schedules and calendars, communication methods, test scores, Parent Portal, volunteer opportunities, and other important information to help you and your child succeed throughout the school year.  It will also provide parents the opportunity to take care of any business matters prior to the first day of school.  Throughout the evening we will have office staff available to assist families in filling out forms and to answer questions.  Please see the Open House flyer in the Granola for the full night’s schedule.  Parents and students will be treated with a hotdog, chips, and a treat while they are here.  We hope that this short visit will help children feel more comfortable as they prepare for the first day of school.  Now is also a great time to start getting your child back into the routine of school; things like preparing for new bed and wake up times, schedule changes, and having conversations about the upcoming school year all help to make the transition from summer to fall go smoothly.

As you already know, the Goodridge Staff is deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of your children.  Our small class sizes, closely-knit community, and high academic expectations make Goodridge a wonderful place to receive an education, and we are thrilled to have your family become a part of our success.  The staff and administration eagerly anticipate welcoming you to another wonderful school year.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or email us at any time, or visit our school website to get the latest news and updates.  See you soon!
