Goethe Elementary is celebrating 125 years as a school. 125 years of love, support, community, giving all we have and more.
As always, we are #GoetheFuerte. Coming back from distance learning has created significant challenges, though we - educators, parents, and neighbors - remain committed to the success of every child. Our kids have faced loss, anxiety, and trauma that have contributed to continuing academic challenges. The pandemic hit our families in need especially hard, and we see that impact in the classroom. Yet the pledge of our educators to teaching the whole child has created an adaptable foundation and nurturing environment for everyone.
Individuals and families like yours have given us the financial means we are missing to continue this work. With help from our community, we have been able to provide:
Flexible seating that allows teachers to restructure the classroom or even move it outside in order to stimulate, inspire, and create an ideal learning environment
STEAM technology to engage kids’ minds from multiple angles that are also tools of expression
Community events and education opportunities tied to equity and accessibility
Thank you for your generosity!
