Welcome Back and Have a GREAT 2022-2023 School Year! 

There are so many wonderful things happening in Goddard Public Schools. Thank you for your partnership and support for the vision of the Goddard Education Foundation as we continue to inspire minds and expand possibilities for our students and teachers.  We hope you will join us as we celebrate the Goddard Education Foundation's Welcome Home Weekend on Friday and/or Saturday, October 21 and 22, 2022.  

We are grateful to induct Goddard Alumni Jana (Fields) Utter (Class 1980) and Julie (Anderson) Moynihan (Class of 1988), and USD 265 Retired Staff Members Sara McDonald, Ruth Wood, and *Paul LaBrue. These individuals have taken to heart their Goddard experiences and have made a positive impact on the world!

The GEF is also honored to celebrate ALL Retired Staff members (and their significant other) of Goddard Public Schools at the Legacy Lunch Event that will be held on Friday, October 21st. Space is limited, so please complete your registration early. 

Nearly 1000 Goddard Alumni spanning 7 different decades have become members of the Goddard Public Schools Alumni Association. We are calling ALL Goddard High, Eisenhower High, and Goddard Academy Graduates to come HOME to celebrate with your classmates, former teachers, friends, and family for the GPSAA Welcome Home Weekend, which are coordinating events in conjunction with Goddard's famous Fall Festival on Oct. 21-22. 

Lastly, none of these events and activities are possible without the generous support of our partnering businesses, organizations, and individuals.  By partnering with the GEF, you have a presence in helping us build a community of support at these events and impact the educational journey of the current 6,400 students and 1,200 educators of Goddard Public Schools. 

We have a NEW 'Creature Crawl' in-person event coming up on Saturday, August 27th, at Tanganyika Wildlife Park, and we would be grateful to have you as our guest at this event to learn more about the GEF and how you can make a BIG impact this school year and beyond in Goddard. Please email danebaxa@goddardusd.com to learn how to RSVP for the Creature Crawl event. 

We appreciate your continued support.  Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can ever be of assistance.
