CTA Goodman Friday News

August 12, 2022

Message from the Principal

A special thanks to every student, parent, and teacher who made our beginning successful. The first 4 weeks went smoothly given the coordinated efforts of all school community members. I appreciate all the community members that review my newsletter and follow our traffic and safety rules.

Please remember your children's safety is so important! We can all spare a few extra minutes to navigate safely around Goodman.

Thank you,

Mrs. Graham

What is Respect - Gator Showing Greatness Word of the Month

Respect means you regard others' thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and traditions. You treat others the way you would want to be treated!

Ask your child/ren what does respect mean to them? How do they believe we can create an environment where ALL feel welcome and respected?

Bicycles and Scooters - School Board Policy JLI Student Handbook

Students in grades 2-6 may ride bicycles or scooters to school with parental consent. We suggest that the bikes and scooters have a sturdy lock and be registered with the city. Helmets are strongly recommended. Bikes and scooters must be walked across campus at all times. Failure to do so may result in the student losing the privilege of riding his/her bike or scooter to school. Motorized bicycles and scooters are prohibited. Please remember the importance of bicycle and scooter safety, and follow the established rules at all times.


Librarians touch the lives of the people they serve every day. The “I Love My Librarian Award” encourages library users to recognize the accomplishments of exceptional public, school, college, community college, or university librarians. Each year 10 librarians are selected. Each librarian receives a $5,000 cash award, a plaque and a travel stipend to attend the awards ceremony and reception in New York City, hosted by Carnegie Corporation of New York.

Nominations for this year’s I Love My Librarian Award are open through September 30. Winners will be announced in early December.
