Welcome to Goodwin Frazier Elementary

Welcome to Goodwin Frazier Elementary School, where you belong! My name is Carolyn Gump and I am proud to be the Principal of GFES. The 2020-2021 school year will be my seventh year to serve as Principal of Goodwin Frazier. 
 
At GFES, you will find some of the most incredible students, teachers, and staff members! We hold ourselves to the highest standards in all that we do. Our staff motto is “We can and we will, the Wildcat Way, every kid every day!” From keeping your children safe, to providing engaging classrooms rich in literacy, numeracy, and critical thinking, our number one priority is your child! 
 
The amazing thing about GFES is that the teachers aren't the only ones with such high expectations for success. Our students "PRIDE" themselves on giving their best in everything they do. We believe students should be taught to hold themselves to a high standard, develop leadership skills, and give their best, especially when something is challenging. We believe in recognizing students who demonstrate these skills through our PRIDE Leadership program. Once per month, students have the opportunity to be nominated to become a PRIDE Leader and recognized at our school assembly. It’s a great way to celebrate high expectations and hard work!
 
Personal Responsibility
Respect 
Integrity
Determination
Excellence 
 
Please stop by, give me a call, or email me any time. I am here to serve the GFES community!

Principal, GFES

As students enter middle school, they begin to put their future dreams into action. The question of, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" begins to take shape.
