Family Newsletter, Friday, May 24, 2024

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

Another school year has come to an end, and we want to extend our heartfelt thanks to all of our families, students, staff, and the Board of Directors for assisting us in making the 2023-2024 school year a success. We hope you have a wonderful summer and look forward to the 2024-2025 school year. This summer we will be updating our curriculum, continue to look for ways to improve our school, and focus on enhancing the Montessori experience while being compliant with the requirements of the Texas Education Agency. We are proud of the school and look forward to the future. 

The support from our Goodwater Montessori School community has been amazing. We deeply appreciate all of our volunteers, especially our wonderful PTO. A special thank you goes out to the Sunshine Committee and to all the families who have devoted so much energy to creating a great learning environment for our students.

We also want to give a big “Shout Out” for the last school day event that was held today. A big thank you to Michelle Wong, Alicia Olivieri, Maegan Kizzar, and all of the parent volunteers who shared their time with our school. I speak for the entire staff and student body in saying, “All of you have made this a very special last day of school.” 

This summer, we hope you enjoy quality time with family and friends. To our returning students, we look forward to seeing you in August. To those students and families not returning, we appreciate all the support you have provided us and wish you continued success.

Have a great summer and stay safe.

Kindest Regards
Dr. Bruce
