The Buff Don't Puff

A few of Mrs. Peckhams fourth grade students.

Fourth-grade students at Goshen Elementary had fun watching some of their classmates try to run breathing through a straw.  They saw what effects drugs can have on their bodies.  The students were excited to have BYU athletes who are part of "The Buff Don't Puff" come and visit their school to teach them about not doing drugs.  After the presentation students signed a poster agreeing to not use drugs.

Red Ribbon Week

Sixth-grade students showing off their crazy socks.

Students at Goshen Elementary got to dress up for different themes for their Red Ribbon Week.  Students were reminded of the harmful effects drugs can cause to their bodies.  Students had a crazy sock day saying they would "sock-it to drugs."

Tie Dye at Goshen

Goshen Elementary's 1st Graders celebrated Zero the Hero's 30th day of school.  The first graders created the Zero the Hero shirts to recognize what place holder zero is.  The culminating activity has proven to be a fun tradition at the school.  The first grade teachers are thankful for the wonderful mom helpers to donate their time to integrate art, social studies, and math for the fantastic first graders.

Assistant Superintendent Wilson visits Goshen

Goshen Elementary was fortunate to have Assistant Superintendent Wilson read with a first grade class.  Mrs. Lopez's first graders anxiously listened to Llama Llama Red Pajama read aloud by Assistant Superintendent Wilson.  He made the book come alive for the students.  Loving books himself, Mr. Wilson donated this very fun book to the the class he visited.  "Thank you for making reading fun!"  the kids said.
