Assistant Principal Rhonda Taylor Heads for Retirement
Please join Goodman Middle School in recognizing Assistant Principal Rhonda Taylor for her dedicated service to Goodman Middle School and the Peninsula School District!
After 36 years in Education and 26 years at Goodman Middle School, Ms. Taylor is retiring at the conclusion of the 2012-13 school year. We all will miss Ms. Taylor's compassion, wit, humor and dedication to excellence.
In commemoration of Ms. Taylor's efforts regarding school climate, here are a few Words of Wisdom:
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
~ Henry David Thoreau
New beginnings can be both exciting and daunting. And although we may have great hope for the future, we may also mourn what we have left behind. This is the stuff of life. Familiar students graduate and leave us behind, we get a promotion and question our ability to meet expectations, or a special friend is transferred and we aren't sure how we will work with his or her replacement. It's important to recognize that each new beginning provides new opportunities. So take care not to close the door of opportunity because of fears or concerns. Allow yourself instead to reminisce about the past fondly and move forward confidently.
With something to think about . . .

Secondary Independent Reading List
This spring, middle and high school teachers and librarians from across the district collaborated to create an Independent Reading List to supplement the SpringBoard curriculum.
The purposes of the project are:
- to support teachers, librarians, parents, and students in choosing high-quality, engaging novels at each grade level for independent reading, literature circles, and/or reading support.
- to deepen student understanding and application of themes and strategies in the curriculum.
- to support the Common Core State Standards requirements that students read more complex texts more frequently.
