Principal's Message

Welcome to the Goodman Pickens Elementary School’s Website, home of the Eagles! We are happy you took the time to visit our webpage.

Goodman Pickens Elementary School is a wonderful place for students to learn, and I know that by working collaboratively together we will ensure an excellent education for your child. Our goal is to provide an educational environment which enables our students to become independent readers, writers, and thinkers. This year, you will find teachers focused on numerous building and district initiatives. Along with these initiatives, we will work together to strive for student achievement and success, ensuring that students are making adequate educational and personal growth.

As the Principal of Goodman Pickens Elementary School, I pledge to you that our students are our number one priority. We will keep you informed with our newsletter and by posting notices to this website.  Please know that we are here to support you and your student, and we welcome you to contact us if there is any way we can further assist you in meeting your child’s needs.


Dedicated to education excellence,

Karen Williams
