Congratulations to the Class of 2015!
Leonard M. Herman Way Street Dedication
Former student Mr. Leonard M. Herman was
honored at Goudy school with a street dedication ceremony on June 15th. In April
of 1992, through the "I Have
a Dream" project, the Herman family adopted 38 students from room 302 to
sponsor them with after school activities/tutoring throughout high school with
the promise of free college tuition upon successful completion of high school.
Mayor Emanuel was in attendance for the ceremony along with the 48th Ward Alderman
Mr. Herman attended Goudy back in 1936.
Sixth Grade Soccer Success
Goudy’s very own Tran Pham has been named the honorable recipient of the 2015
scholarship for the Chicago Premier soccer team. Through hard work and dedication,
Tran has set the bar for her fellow peers by not only becoming a Chicago Premier
player, but receiving a full scholarship to play for the elite traveling soccer
team. Her Goudy soccer coaches, Coach Fox and Coach Congenie, commend Tran for
her unbelievable skill and ability to be a positive leader amongst her peers;
they are proud of her wonderful accomplishment to be accepted as a part of such
a high-achieving team. Coach Yvonne Koble of the IWSL A Division champion team,
Chicago Premier, describes Tran as “fearless…eager to learn and always wear[ing]
a smile.” These qualities undoubtedly lead to her success, and her continuing
perseverance to thrive in athletics will surely prove to be assets to the Chicago
Premier team. Goudy wishes Tran the best of luck and congratulations on her amazing
achievement. Go Cougars!!
Acoustical Engineer Project
In Mrs. Whitehouse’s engineering lab, third Graders have been working as Acoustical
Engineers. They listened to five different bird songs to analyze the differences
in pitch, volume and duration. Then they created sonograms, or picture representations,
of one of the birds using the Engineering Design Process. Each team imagined
what the bird sound looked like, made a plan, created it, and then made suggestions
for how each team could improve their representations. You can hear the birds
Each class then combined engineering with art through a grant from Chicago
Artist Partnership in Education (CAPE). Artist Margy Stover worked with the 3rd
graders to create sculptures that represent the Northern Cardinal’s bird call.
Students again used the engineering design process to choose shapes, colors,
and materials for their designs. The sculptures are hanging on the second floor
stairwells and along the south windows.
