Family Newsletter, Friday, May 17, 2024

Dear Goodwater Families,
I hope this note finds you and your family well.

Yesterday was the first day of our moving-up ceremonies for third grade. Thank you to all of the parents, grandparents, and other family members who attended these special events. The students presented legacy letters for students coming into their communities next and advice for younger students who will be leaders next year. These ceremonies were all unique and it was awesome to be a part of the celebration. 

We have the Spring Market on May 20th. Market days provide the opportunity for our Adolescent students to showcase their talents relating to products they make in class. The money they earn for these Market Days is put back into the Adolescent program. We appreciate your support.

Please review our website for information regarding the classroom reconfiguration for next year. The link for this important information is  If you have any questions please send an email to

Have a great weekend with your family.

Kindest Regards
Dr. Bruce
