       Dear Goddard Students, Parents, and Guardians:

       As we conclude our first semester and head for the holidays, it seems like a good time to pay tribute to some of
       the people and organizations that make our school so successful. Here are some of the groups on my mind this

        I appreciate Centura Health and Hospital Corporation. They are the source of most of the computers that we
          give to students at school. Can you imagine that we have given more than 130 computers to students since
          we began our “Computers for All” program one year ago? Amazing.

        I appreciate our quiet and generous benefactor who lives far away in New York City and who has contributed
          thousands of dollars over the past two years to ensure that every sixth grader goes to Outdoor Education.

        I am tremendously grateful to all of our volunteers. You wipe cafeteria tables, chaperone field trips, sponsor
          activities, raise money, plan parties, attend meetings, answer phones, stuff envelopes, run a school store, plan
          the Goddard Gallop and Red Ribbon Week and Career Day, refurbish computers, run copy machines, and
          more. I don’t know how many hours you give, but I see the results each day.

        I appreciate our custodians. Imagine if eight hundred people came to your house every day and nobody
          helped you clean up! Our building is forty years old, but it is bright and clean, safe and sound, and it is a good
          place for teachers to teach and children to learn.

        I appreciate our school service organizations: WEB, Builder’s Club, National Junior Honor Society, and Stu-
          dent Council. Together, these students teach all of us about the importance of community involvement and

        I appreciate the support of our school district. Their behind-the-scenes work makes a difference for teachers,
          for students, and for administrators. They are the people who figure out the best standardized reading test.
          They help us locate the most economical classroom furniture. They negotiate lease and purchase agreements
          for computer labs. They create a community of school administrators that helps us stick together as a district
          team. Their work is almost invisible to middle school students, yet it affects every minute of our day.

        I appreciate our teachers. You will not find a more dedicated, hard-working, caring group of professionals any-

        Mostly, I appreciate our students. I love their energy, their intelligence, their sense of humor, and their good-
          ness. Thank you for sharing them with me.

       With warm holiday wishes,

       Amy R. Oaks, Ph.D.

                                             COLLEGE NIGHTS

  For sixth grade parents, it’s hard to believe, but the time for parents to educate themselves about college is now, during
  middle school. This is the time to start thinking about which high school will be a good fit for your student, what classes
  your student will want to complete for high school graduation and what your student might do after high school. If college
  is in your student’s future, what should you do now to get ready and how can you prepare yourself financially?

  These two evenings are sponsored by AVID, Goddard’s program for college-bound students. Everyone is invited to at-
  tend. Last year’s presentations were crowded and well-received, so please do call early to reserve a spot.

                                           STUDENT RECOGNITION

         Congratulations to the following students who were recognized as “Vikings of the Week.” Here’s how this
         works — as teachers see students doing good things, they give students coupons to record their good
         deeds. One copy of the coupon goes into a box and we draw one student from each core each week, as
         well as one student from electives. Thanks to all of these students for making Goddard a nicer place!
