Halloween Celebrations at Goshen Elementary

Goshen Elementary students started celebrating Halloween a little early this year.  Going along with Red Ribbon Week students wore their Halloween costumes to school on Friday, October 23 to show that "doing drugs is scary."  Students participated in a parade around the school to show off their costumes.  

That evening the school had their Fall Carnival.  The PTA planned many fun activities.  Some of the activities were bowling, dart boards, ring tosses, a haunted house, getting Halloween tattoes, and eating lots of goodies.  Thank you PTA and volunteers for helping Goshen have an exciting evening!

 

Water Cycle Experiment

Students in Miss Samantha Jensen's fourth grade class at Goshen Elementary have been learning about the water cycle and weather.  They made water cycle models and have been enjoying seeing the water cycle work inside their bottles.  Students had to cut their grass since they were receiving so much precipitation inside their bottles.

Winners Don't Do Drugs!

During Red Ribbon Week at Goshen Elementary students wore their favorite sports team colors to show that they are winners and don't do drugs.  Students were reminded of all the other things they can do instead of drugs.  Goshen students are staying drug free!

Third Grade Catapults

Students in Mrs. Margaret Allinson’s and Mrs. Audy Lott’s third-grade class have been learning about force and motion. Each student was asked to make a catapult at home with no real specific instructions given on what it had to look like.  Students were creative and made catapults using legos, rocks, spoons, sticks, rulers or even squash.  

On Friday, October 2, students brought their catapults to school and launched marshmallows outside.  Mrs. Allinson even brought her huge catapult and launched candy to the students that made their catapults.  Students enjoyed learning about force and motion and putting their knowledge to use with their catapults.
