The third graders at Goshen Elementary have been participating in the Rad Kids program.  In this twelve week program students learn about personal empowerment and safety.  The PE technicians, Dusti Thompson and Heidi Sessions, with the help of Officer Tindal have been teaching the students and showing them some self defense moves they can use if they are in danger.

Goshen's Turkey Strut Competition

Goshen Elementary likes to celebrate Thanksgiving each year by having a turkey strut competition.  Students in each class are chosen to go against other students in the school showing their best turkey gobble, strut, or a combination of both.  This year two students won turkeys for having the best overall turkey performance.  A few teachers were lucky enough to give it a try this year and fifth-grade teacher, Mr. Nate Holt won a turkey for his performance!

 

Utah Native American Projects

Students in Miss Samantha Jensen's fourth-grade class learned about some of the Utah Native American tribes that once lived in Utah.  Each student did research on one of the tribes and created a model of that tribe's dwelling.  Students were excited to present their projects to the class as they shared new information they learned.

The Utah Symphony Performs for the Fourth Graders

Fourth graders at Goshen Elementary recently attended a performance put on by the Utah Symphony at Salem Hills High.  The students were excited when they heard a few familiar songs played by the symphony.  They were able to see what instruments were used to put together the songs.  Students even got up and marched in place to one of the marches played by the performers.  Thanks to the Utah Symphony for performing for students in Nebo District.
