Goshen's annual Christmas Program will be a sing-along this year.  Each grade has chosen a song to sing, and then the entire school will join in singing during the finale.  Parents are invited to join us Friday at 2:30 in the gym for some fun singing to bring in the Christmas holiday.

The school district is offering some computer coding classes for students in the 4-6 grades starting in January.  If your child is interested in computers, these would be fun classes for them to take.  The class will not be offered here, but there is a class at Wilson School in Payson if you're interested.  The cost for the beginners class will be $19 and will be held every Wednesday for 4 weeks and the cost for an Intermediate class will be $39 and will be held every Wednesday for 10 weeks.  If you have any questions, there is a link to the flyer with more information, including info on how to sign up.

Penny Wars

Don't forget about Penny Wars going on this week!  Any pennies put in each grades bucket counts towards the grade's total, and any silver/bills put into their bucket goes AGAINST their total.  So far the faculty is winning!!!  Penny wars will be going on through Friday.  This is a great time to get rid of those pesky pennies that weigh your pockets and purse down.  All proceeds will go towards helping a family in need in our area.
