Change is always exciting and interesting. Here are the changes that will take
place on the Goodyear Campus for the 2010-2011 school year:
- The name Goodyear Middle School will cease to exist.
- Seventh and eighth graders will return, as uaual, to the 45 N. Martha Ave. building on
September 1, 2010. This building is now considered part of the East Community Learning Center.
- Sixth graders will remain in their Cluster elementary buildings.
- The Martha Ave. building, formerly Goodyear Middle School, will be renamed East C.L.C. - Goodyear Campus.
- When our new building next to East on Brittain Rd. is completed, the students will move to that building.
The current projected date for that move is some time after winter break (i.e., January, 2011).
More information will be provided as it becomes available.
Say hello to the new principal of the Goodyear Campus, Nicki Embly.
Mrs. Embly comes to Goodyear as she begins her 28th year as an educator. Her previous
experience includes teaching in grades kindergarten through eight in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and
the U. S. Virgin Islands and ten years as an administrator.
As we welcome Mrs. Embly to Goodyear,
is her letter of welcome to Goodyear students, parents, and the community at large.
Construction continues for Goodyear's new home as part of the
East Community Learning Center. The separate middle school wing,
being built facing Brittain Rd. and adjacent to the existing East High building,
could open as soon as January, 2011.
As a middle school teacher, would you like to offer your classes a curriculum that
encompasses many areas of learning at the same time? As a middle school student,
would you like to learn while watching classic movies?
Maybe the answer to both wishes is the free curriculum sponsored by Turner Classic Movies
and IBM called
The Story of Movies.
Because of its interdisciplinary approach to studying film, The Story of Movies
integrates the core subjects of language arts, history and social studies, music, art,
and science. In screening film segments and investigating both the language of
film and the historical and cultural context in which a film is produced, students
practice critical reading and thinking skills and formulate ideas through discussions,
written reports, and group activity projects
