Dear Goudy Parents:
Welcome to the 2017-2018 academic year! I hope everyone had a restful and relaxing break. It’s been so wonderful to have the children back at school. They walked into the building with smiles and ready to learn. I have a feeling that we’re going to have an outstanding year of achievement!
Over the past two months, our school received much needed structural repairs to our roof and masonry. The AstroTurf in our campus park has been refreshed and we are in the process of getting a brand new hardwood floor in our gym. These changes reflect my mission to ensure that Goudy Technology Academy is a safe and beautiful learning environment for our children.
My staff and I are looking forward to a productive year. We hope you can join us for our annual Open House on September 20th from 5pm-7pm. At 5pm we will begin the evening in the school auditorium. You don’t want to miss the opening where we will be premiering the Goudy Staff Superhero Video! After the opening ceremony you are free to tour the school and check out your child’s classrooms and meet their teachers. Make sure to have your children explain their super hero hopes and dreams for this year.
Parents of 8th grade students, we will have a MANDATORY 8th grade parent meeting during Open House after the opening show where we will discuss with you the many wonderful events happening this year for your 8th grade child and go over the new high school application process.
Stay tuned for monthly updates and make sure to check out your child’s classroom web page.
See you on September 20th!
Through the hard work of our teachers, students, and parents, Goudy Technology Academy is a Level 1+ school! We want to thank the parents and the Goudy community for your continued support and collaboration to enable us to achieve such a distinguished rating. We look forward to another great school year in 2016-17!" Please see the report itself and the parent letter..
In light of recent national events, CPS has been testing the water for levels of lead at all schools. CPS is committed to the health and safety of our students and staff; this testing is conducted with an abundance of caution to ensure water in our schools is safe.
Results from Goudy indicate one fountain (located on the 3rd floor next to Room 305) was above the action level. The full results and resources to understand the process and next steps are now posted on online at CPS.EDU/LEADTESTING.
We will continue to keep you and your family informed throughout this process." Parent Letter|| Health Resources
