Students at Goodrell’s 21st Century Community Learner Center’s summer school program have been having fun while learning about great topics. Here they are pictured working on balloon powered cars with our CYC partners.
Goodrell Middle School students finished the school year with a terrific display of talent and imagination. A last-day-of-school assembly featured games, performances and a glow show. We wish the very best of luck to our departing 8th graders and retiring staff. Everyone have a great summer! Click on the image for more photos of the assembly.
Students and staff had some fun activities planned including teacher acts, grade level games and then some sporting competitions to end the year. Pictured are Stacey Kimberlin, Joshua Brown, Wendy Gibb and Bill Flesch after their performance of “School’s Out” during an all school assembly.
Thank you to the Goodrell students who played soccer this year and their families. We had some fun times playing and learning together!
7th graders were able to show off their learning of various cultures from around the world during their 7th grade global studies classes by presenting an international fair to family, other students and the staff of Goodrell.
