Principal’s Message

Welcome to the Goulds Elementary School website. It is a tremendous honor to be named the Principal of Goulds Elementary. I look forward to creating strong and collaborative relationships with the staff and parents of this great community. Goulds Elementary is a special place and I am overjoyed to be in position to positively impact the lives of students and teachers.

My vision for Goulds is to continue to build an ideal school environment where students feel safe, comfortable, challenged and engaged in learning.

I have but one focus for Goulds Elementary School and that is, to be Great! What does greatness mean? Greatness is neither a destination nor a moment in time, but it is a journey towards a consistent pattern of behavior that results in constant progress and achievement. We often celebrate significant moments in our lives, like anniversaries, graduations, birthdays, victories, and other milestones. Schools should look for moments to celebrate students, teachers and parents as often as we can with intentionality and purpose to create an environment where we all have a sense of belonging.

We are about to embark upon a new school year with great enthusiasm, great anticipation and great uncertainty of new opportunities that will enhance our instructional program and school community as a whole.

I encourage you to visit our website often to remain abreast of school news, activities and events. Your participation in our school is needed and greatly appreciated.

I look forward to partnering with you on behalf of our future leaders as we are, Teaming Up for Greatness: One Team, One Dream!

Warm regards,

Celethia Passmore -Mack, Principal
