Principal's Message - Marking Period 2 2018


Hello Goetz Family,


The 1st Marking Period has come to a close and we are on our way to new experiences and wonderful opportunities.  The 2018-2019 school year is off to a great start and we appreciate your support as we build on this early momentum.  


Academically, The Carl W. Goetz Middle School was honored to achieve the Highest Literacy and Second Highest Math Standardized Test Score out of all Ocean County Middle Schools!  Great job to our students, staff and the community for supporting the initiatives that are paying these dividends!


Our Fall Sports teams maintained the tradition of excellence with competitive squads and remained in the hunt for conference championships, including the top spot for our Field Hockey Team.  Our Winter Sports are off to a strong start and we are looking to continue that success. The highly distinguished Band and Chorus programs continue to shine with wonderful Winter Concerts and another group of students being selected as All Shore selections.  


At Goetz, we are continuing to recognize students for their positive character traits through our R.A.C.E.R. program.  The students are learning how to be responsible members of the community through initiatives such as the “Kindness Rocks” display in the front of the building or by being a part of the newly dedicated “Wall of Honor” ceremony that pays tribute to all the Veterans who have graced the halls of Carl W. Goetz Middle School.  The feedback on our new Habit, Culture & Community class has been overwhelmingly positive. It is wonderful to watch students thrive by developing their social and emotional learning skills.


Thank you for all you do to support our school.  We look forward to a fantastic 2019!




Mr. Perino
