  • ESLRs

    The Expected Schoolwide Learning Results (ESLR's) are the outcomes students who graduate from Godinez Fundamental High School are expected to exhibit. Our ESLRS have two elements, scholarship and character. Administrators, teachers, students and parents work together to insure that future graduates are prepared for their future both academically and personally.

Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Students,


Summer School has been going extremely well and we are serving over 1,300 students for enrichment or recovery.  Students have been doing a great job being at school on time and ready to make the best of our precious Summer School hours.  We are also piloting an on-line PE class that has been great fun, interactive and exciting to see the progress.  Our after school program is in full swing and providing a fun place to relax, meet with friends and enjoy field trips.  I thank the teachers and staff serving our students in the summer.

Do not forget to begin our school wide summer read; I am Malala.  It is an inspiring story about Malala, a young Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate.  Malala is known for human rights advocacy for education and for women in her native Swat Valley.  We are sure her story will inspire all who read it and have the Godinez students ready to think about how each of us can serve and give back to our community. Please see our website for the work to accompany your read.

Exciting times await all of the Godinez 9th and 10th grade students.  In order to prepare students for 21st Century skills all 9th and 10th grade students will be provided with a chrome book device to use for the school year.  It is expected for students to bring this device to school and from home everyday.  These students are urged to take advantage of this luxury that will expand their access to information 24/7.   Additionally, the use of student owned, electronic devices for all grades is encouraged.   Teachers are planning to continue to incorporate blended and online learning into lessons.  All students may purchase insurance for their school or personal device for great, reduced rates.  Please see the Godinez website and for information.  Godinez will have a number of daytime and evening meetings at the end of July and early August for our 9th and 10th grade students to pick up their device and purchase insurance.  Please listen for our phone messages for these important dates. 

The newly formed Godinez PTSA has begun to meet and plan for the 2015-2016 school year.  I am thrilled to have these dedicated parents and students leading the charge to serve Godinez in this capacity.  Volunteers are needed so please contact me at or call Godinez at 714 433-6600 and I will gladly welcome you and thank you for your anticipated dedication and commitment to Godinez.   It is going to be an exciting year with this great group of people. 

As always it is my pleasure to serve the parents, students and Godinez staff.  I am looking forward to a great year for our students academically and socially.  If you are parents of freshmen, please encourage your new Grizzly to get involved in sports, clubs, after school programs, community service or one of our many exciting programs.  I know they will have a great four years at Godinez.


Enjoy your summer,

Cindy Landsiedel

Godinez Principal
