Sixth-grade students at Goshen Elementary just finished a six week typing program.  The students practiced each day to improve their typing skills and speed.  The fastest typers are Carson Bateman with 75 words per minute and Nathan Staheli with 60 words per minute.  Nice work sixth graders!

Goshen's Food Drive

Jesse Ekins, Megan Hazlet, and Austin Larson are collecting food

Students at Goshen Elementary collected food for the local food bank.  Students were glad to share what they had at home to help others in need.  Charity Pieper said, "The food drive is a very good activity, especially around Thanksgiving so we can be thankful.  I am glad we have this program and can help people in need."  Each classroom collected food for a week and the student council came around to each room and gathered all the food to distribute to families in the area.  Thanks to all those who donated items for the food drive!

 

Goshen's Fourth-grade Paleontologists

Paleontologists

The fourth-grade students at Goshen Elementary spent time as Paleontologists studying many different Utah fossils. The Museum on the Move came and visited the students and allowed them to see many of the fossils they have at the museum. The students had a great time exploring, observing, wondering, and making inferences about plants and animals from Utah's past.
