The Crystal Apple Award at Goshen

Mrs. Julie Parkin receiving the Crystal Apple Award.

On Wednesday, January 27, the Crystal Apple Award at Goshen Elementary was given to Mrs. Julie Parkin.  This is Julie's second year teaching sixth grade at Goshen Elementary.  Julie has four kids and is known to some as the yard sale queen.  She spends hours working at home on weekends making lessons and developing hands-on-activities for her students.  Julie has been writing amazing songs to teach math and science concepts.  Her students love her and enjoy coming to class every day.  They know there will be some fun activities and songs to be learned.  Thanks Mrs. Parkin for all your hard work and dedication!

Top Readers at Goshen

Sidney Burrell and Sam Coleman

Goshen students are trying to reach their reading minute goal for the year.  There are three traveling trophies that rotate each week to to the top reading classes for the week.  Mrs. Monica Valerio's class has been one of the top reading classes in the school this year.  They have enjoyed having the trophy in their room for just about every week.  Fifth-grade students, Sidney Burrell and Sam Coleman have been a great help in this class receiving the most minutes.  Keep up the reading students!

Geometry Birds

Fourth-grade students at Goshen Elementary have been learning about geometry.  They recently did an art project creating a bird using different geometric terms, such as, circle, diameter, radius, different angles, and lines.  It was fun for students to see what they had been learning in math put into an art project.

Magician Visits Goshen

Students at Goshen Elementary are continuing to read in hopes to dye Principal Jim Welburn's hair.  To encourage students to continue reading, the Road to Success sent their magician to the school.  He did all kinds of tricks and had the students laughing the whole time.  Students were able to share some of their favorite books with the school and receive prizes too.
