    Dear Goodman Elementary Families,

    On behalf of Goodman Elementary School, I would like to welcome you to another exciting school year! I feel very privileged to continue to have the opportunity to work with the highly qualified and dedicated staff, the wonderful students, and the supportive parents at Goodman! This will be an exciting year for many reasons, one being we will get to watch the construction process in the building of our new facility and home! I can’t wait and I know you can’t either! We will remain in our temporary home at the Neosho Middle School for the 18-19 school year. Our temporary address remains 1400 Hale McGinty Dr, Neosho, MO 64850.  We will have the same phone number as before (417-451-8680). Last year came with its fair share of challenges and obstacles to overcome but it was overall a very successful and productive year, thanks to many of you and our amazing staff! This year will be full of fun and opportunities as well, in fact, it will be the “Greatest Show”!

    Please know that we will continue to work with you to make sure that your children have a year full of safety, love, challenge, and a whole lot of fun!  This year we are excited to welcome our new team members! We have Miss Pesek in fourth grade, Mrs. Davis in the library and Mrs. Spector who will be our reading recovery teacher! We will also have a new nurse! They are already joining our team in a magical way!

    We do want to remind you that all Goodman children will continue to be bus eligible for the 2018-19 school year. Please stop by the transportation booth at open house for any information regarding transportation. We’re excited to be able to offer this service this year for both school age and preschool age students!

    Below you will find the teacher for your child for this school year. Please know that much thought and preparation was used in deciding the most appropriate placement for your child. Due to this, all classes will remain as they are set at this time. We are unable to accept requests for different placement.

    We welcome all our families back to another exciting, challenging year. While we are looking forward to the day when we will be back in Goodman, we are excited to see what this new year will bring! We would like to invite you to Open House on Monday, August 13th from 5:00-7:00  This “come-and-go” Open House will be a great time for your child to meet their teacher, visit their classroom and for you to find out about specific bus information.  This is a great time to drop off supplies as well! You will find two enclosures with this letter regarding important information for this school year. Please look over these things, download the apps, and be sure to ask any questions you might have at open house!

    The first day of school is August 15th and it’s going to be great! We are going to have the GREATEST year yet because, This is the GREATEST school!
