Goudy Chess Team Wins City Championship
The Goudy 5th/6th Grade team beat out the top kids in the City
of Chicago to take the 1st place title in the city-wide chess championship tournament
this past Saturday, March 8th. The competition was fierce in this annual event
that pits the best with best in CPS Chess. Congratulations to all our chess students
who participated in this event.
Goudy's 2nd Graders did
a great job as Civil Engineers this month in their Engineering Lab class. Their Engineering Design
Challenge was to build a strong, stable bridge that could hold at least 60 heavy
bolts without failing down. They designed and built a variety of bridges that
held up 60...80...100..over 200 bolts!
We, the stakeholders of Goudy School, are committed
to fostering a culture that focuses on respect, responsibility, and a sense of
belonging in a safe and supportive environment for all students. Within our rigorous
curriculum, we are implementing differentiated and data-driven instruction that
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.
