Here is a little Goodman history. Thank you, Lucy Goodman!

In honor of National Book Lover's Day, here is a photo of Lucy Goodman reading to her kindergarten class. She started teaching in GH in 1887 (technically the town’s third teacher). She tried to retire in 1927, but then was persuaded to open a private kindergarten (kindergarten was not a standard part of public school at the time).

In 1946 Lucy became one of the first librarians of the first library in Gig Harbor as part of the new library district. She finally retired from teaching at age 93 in 1962. Goodman Middle School is named in her honor.


Is it too soon to mention “back-to-school” events?!

Mark your calendars! School Picture Day is August 30th. New students are invited for orientation, Goodman Connections, that morning, including school photos. Returning students will join us in the afternoon for their photos. Student schedules will be available that day also.

Stay tuned for the details as we get closer, and watch our website next week for our “Welcome Back” page with more information about the 23/24 school year!



Have a safe holiday and a terrific summer, Roadrunners!

We are proud of our 8th graders!


More retirement congrats for our amazing Goodman staff!

We will all miss Mrs. Cook and her smiling face greeting everyone to our office, and we are grateful for her years of service here at Goodman. If you have ever called or come into our school, you have had the good fortune of talking with her!

Congratulations on your retirement, you deserve it!


I’m not crying, you’re crying!

Thank you, Julie Allison, for leaving Goodman with a legacy of musical excellence, and for inspiring all of us. Words cannot begin to express our gratitude.

Congratulations on your much deserved retirement!


Juneteenth, a Federal Holiday, is just around the corner on Monday, June 19. Join us as we commemorate the emancipation of slaves in Galveston, Texas on this historic day in 1865.

Did you know that the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 was just the first step? Juneteenth marks the moment when Union troops spread the news and granted further legal rights to Black Americans.

To learn more about Juneteenth’s significance and it’s impact on our society, visit

Let’s come together as a community to celebrate and reflect on the progress we’ve made while recognizing the work that still lies ahead.

Hey 8th Graders, get your tickets now because you won’t want to miss this event!


This week, May 15-19, the Peninsula School District is celebrating all of our district administrative staff. These are the employees working every day at our district buildings and in our schools in nearly every program, department, and more. A lot of their work is behind-the-scenes, but is vital to our students’ education.

Thank you!


Roadrunner families, you are invited to the Goodman Middle School VPO meeting!

This Friday our VPO board is having a meeting. All current GMS families are welcome to attend and see how you can get involved. We'd love to meet you. 1pm-2:30pm


This week is Administrative Professionals Week, and we want to honor all of the office managers, secretaries, administrative assistants, executive assistants, and receptionists who keep the wheels turning at PSD.

Much of the work our administrative professionals do is behind the scenes, but nothing would be possible without their contributions.

Thank you!


Go, Roadrunners!


This week is national volunteer week, and we want to shout out THANK YOU to all of the volunteers who help in our school buildings and at our school events. The hard work of our volunteers helps our students grow and learn in a supported community.

Learn more about volunteering at our schools at:

Thank you, Goodman Middle School VPO


Don’t forget! Next week, April 10-14, is spring break for PSD students. There is no school and district offices are closed to the public.

Enjoy a week off and we’ll see you Monday, April 17!


Registration opens online in the Student Portal later today. Watch for your instructions in Parent Square after school!

It’s hard to believe, but online registration for electives for the 23/24 school year will begin next week! Information was shared in Parent Square yesterday and we will follow up with directions next week.

If you have any questions, our counselors are here to help!

We need you! Consider joining our Goodman Middle School VPO!

Are you someone who likes organization, can delegate jobs and communicate clearly? President might be the role for you (2023/24 7th or 8th grade parents please). We need a new President for next school year in order to have a VPO. Please consider volunteering your time. We are a fun group of people to work with. If you are interested or have any questions about the roles, please email [email protected].


Our AVID class students presented to the School Board on Thursday night, and they made Roadrunner Nation proud!

Future 7th & 8th graders, you will have the chance to register for AVID next year. It’s a great opportunity! If you have questions, see Mrs. Zamberlin, your counselor, or ask your favorite Goodman teacher about it today!

Check out the Goodman Middle School VPO library fundraiser! Did we just make a library pun?!


Thank you to our fabulous Goodman Middle School VPO for sponsoring this book fair!

GMS Love Our Library Fundraiser, February 5-11
No cupid needed for Valentine's Day this year! This February, help us share the love by supporting our Goodman library. Instead of a traditional bookfair, we are providing local businesses and families with 3 ways to give. We'd like to invite each and every Goodman family to participate in some way---whether that is making a donation via paypal or by check "Goodman VPO" , buying from the GMS Library Amazon Wishlist: or completing a purchase with Invitation Bookshop in Gig Harbor February 5-11 with code "GMSLove" where 20% of all proceeds will fund the GMS Library. Invitation Bookshop has so much more than books. You can be sure to surprise and delight each of the Valentines in your life with everything from socks to candy to puzzles.

Thank you to the generosity of our sponsors, BBQ2U, Invitation Bookshop, and Paige Schulte Realty.

Our goal is $2,500 and we can't do it without everyone's support. Please consider a donation or purchase today.
