Mrs. Staheli, Mrs. Barlow and Mrs. Baguley

This year we have three teachers leaving Goshen School. They are Mrs. Patsy Barlow, Mrs, Leslie Baguley, and Mrs. Lori Staheli. We want to give them a great big THANK YOU!!! and wish them the best in the years to come.

Patsy Barlow has been a Kindergarten teacher at Goshen School for 22 Years. She also taught for 7 years at Franklin Elementary in Provo.  She said, “I have loved working with kindergarten teachers for 29 years. It has been so rewarding to see children progress from not even knowing how to line up, to grasping the fundamentals of reading. It is fun to see students as adults and parents themselves, who remember me as their teacher when they were five. I have had the privilege of working with many different teachers and principals during my years in education. These teachers and principals have influenced my teaching for the better and have helped and guided me throughout the years. I will miss my association with the children and colleagues, but I am looking forward to retirement.”

Leslie Baguley has been a 2nd grade teacher at Goshen Elementary School for 15 years. She said, “I have loved my time with Nebo School District. I felt proud every August when we all meet at the start of a new school year, and are welcomed as a family. All my years have been at Goshen teaching 2nd Grade. I love the kids of this school, the faculty, and Principal. We are close and are always there to help each other.”

Lori Stalleli has been a kindergarten teacher for the past 5 years at Goshen School. She has loved her years here and has adored her students.  She is leaving Goshen at this time, so that she can spend more time with her twin girls.

We had "Dancing with the Stars" at Goshen School! And the stars were from the first to sixth Grades!  As a school, each grade shared their dance skills with the school and our community. A special THANK YOU to Karlene Savage for working with our school for a very successful event!

The annual May Dance Festival will be this Tuesday, May 26 at 10:00am. in the gym.   Because of the daily rain showers, the festival will be held in the school gym.  Also, please do not allow your child to wear flip flops or lose fitting sandals  (because they may fall during their dance).  Each grade has been asked to wear the following outfits:

1st Grade: Goshen school shirts or yellow & blue shirts.

2nd Grade: Boys black shirts & girls bright colored tops.

3rd Grade: White t-shirts, baseball cap, and jeans.

4th Grade: Anything western... jeans, levi's, western skirts, western tops, cowboy hats, big belt buckles, cowboy boots or just a white t-shirt and jeans.

5th Grade: red, white, or blue tops.

6th Grade: Western wear (like 4th grade).


We look forward to seeing you there!

What a wonderful way to reward our students who always remember to read, read, read! A Reading Carnival was held during school for all students who record and send in their reading minutes. Students were given the opportunity to purchase books, play games for prizes and receive a treat. Thank you to Mrs. Penrod, Mrs. DeGraffenried and our many wonderful reading and planning time teachers who helped to put this together for our school.

During the 4th grade in Nebo District, students are enrolled in a very intensive keyboarding class that is taught by Mr. Bartholomew. He challenges the students to do their best! In the class students type with blank keyboards in order to learn the keys and to type faster without errors with so many words per minute. This year's award winners are pictured. GREAT Job 4th Grade!
