Goetz is a great middle school! This is my 18th year teaching sixth grade in the Literacy Dept. I enjoy helping students improve their reading, writing, and speaking skills. I hope that I can make this an enjoyable year of learning for my students! Parents, if you ever need to contact me, you can jot a note in the Planner, or send an email to ctenaglia@jacksonsd.org and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

    To begin the month off, students will be formally tested by taking the NJSLA. Math begins the week of May 6-8 and Literacy is tested on May 13-14. Make sure your child has a good breakfast before coming to school and that they are on time. The test begins promptly at 8:10. They will also be reading a novel and learning about poetry. Students will also continue to delve into the Wordly Wise book to increase their vocabulary usage and understanding. A major grade for this marking period will be the Speech- both written and oral. Refer to the packet of directions sent home. A few parents have yet to sign the notification paper. Please check with your child if you have not seen it. Thank you.
