Goudy's singers, musicians, and rappers all took the stage Friday November
8th at the Rhyme & Rock workshop. The students all wrote their own raps,
learned about how to make it as a musician, and performed at the end-of-the-show
open mic. Here are some of the pictures from the event.
On Tuesday, October 22, 2013, Mayor Rahm
Emanuel visited Goudy School to teach a Civics lesson to one of our 8th grade
classes. He stayed over
an hour to teach our 8th graders about the Great Recession and the many steps
he took as Chief of Staff to President Obama to help improve the economy. Our
students were completely engrossed by the Mayor and the amazing insight he was
able to share regarding such an important topic. The Goudy 8th grade students
asked many great questions that the Mayor answered graciously. We truly enjoyed
his visit and we hope that Mayor Emanuel can visit Goudy again!!!
We, the stakeholders of Goudy School, are committed

contributes to the success of our students. As a magnet cluster, we are striving
to equip all students with technological capabilities that will promote academic
growth and development. We are committed to ensuring that all children including
English Language Learners, students with disabilities, and the academically gifted,
are afforded the opportunities to reach their full potential in preparation to
meet the challenges of the 21st century.
Goudy Technology Magnet Cluster, in collaboration
with students, parents, and community members, embraces a culturally diverse,
technologically advanced, and respectful learning environment. We envision technology
and collaboration to be integrated throughout our curriculum and in every classroom
to provide all students with the 21st century skills that will empower them to
become successful leaders and productive citizens in our society.
