Keyboarding at Goshen

Sidney Burrell and Mr. Bartholomew

The fifth and sixth grade students at Goshen Elementary just finished their keyboarding classes.  The class was taught by Mr. Randy Bartholomew who had the students working toward goals this year.  Students were given candy, money, and gift cards based on the levels they reached in keyboarding.  The high scoring student, who reached Level 12 being able to type 80 words per minute, is Sidney Burrell.

Recorder Performance at Goshen

Mrs. Carrie Norton's class

The South Nebo Elementary PTA Council for their monthly visit came to Goshen Elementary.  The fourth graders performed some songs on their recorders.  They were directed by the music teacher, Mrs. Valerie Corlett who has been teaching them how to play a recorder this year.

Fourth Graders Visit Thanksgiving Point

The fourth graders at Goshen Elementary went to the Children's Discovery Garden at Thanksgiving Point to explore what they have learned in science this year.  Students watched an experiment on how heat and pressure can change the form of a rock.  They also walked around and identified different rocks and animals in Utah.  Pictured are students in Mrs. Samantha Peckham's class as they created an animal that could adapt to the habitat and climate on a fictional planet they were given. Thanks to a grant from Thanksgiving Point students were able to share their knowledge and participate in these fun activities.

2011 Education Fair

Each year Goshen Elementary has an Education Fair where students can explore and learn more about concepts that interest them. They may participate in Language Arts, Science, Math or Social Studies activities. The students are required to make a visual, showing what they did for their project. They present their projects to judges and receive cash awards.  The overall winners for each grade received a medal and the sixth grade overall winners received a trophy and an Educational Savings Plan.  This is a great event.  One that Goshen looks forward to each year.  The high point sixth graders were Parker Hannifin and McKenna Hammond. The overall class winners for 2011 were: Grady Bowers, Marcus Stewart, Lauren Voran, Hank Bowers, Brandon Jasperson, Leandra Allred, and Parker Hannifin.  Honors went to thses sixth grade students as well: Ezri Staheli, Bridgett Lott, and Hunter Jasperson.

Reading and Winning Bikes at Goshen

This is what it looked like as first grade student Koy Isaacson, son of Dustin and Chelsie Isaacson of Goshen, finished his "victory lap" in the halls of Goshen Elementary School last week. Koy won the bicycle in a drawing of all of the students in the school that had been reading in Ken Garff's Road to Success reading program. Koy, a trick bicycle rider, was doing a maneuver called "Bunny Hops," as this picture was taken to celebrate the season and being chosen for the new bike.
