Soul Hope Service Project

Attributions: 

Goshen School has been given the opportunity to participate in a service project for the group Soul Hope.  Soul Hope helps the children and people in Uganda fight against Jiggers.  Jiggers are parasites that dig into the feet of the people who live there.  There are many health implications and social stigma as a result of these parasites.  We will be asking for used jean donations (jeans only).  The jeans are used to make shoes and protect the people's feet infected by Jiggers.  Jeans are due by April 26 (next Wednesday).  This is a great way to do some spring cleaning in your drawers and closests, while helping those that can't afford shoes to keep their feet and bodies healthy.  The following link is to their website if you would like to learn more about this opportunity.

Goshen's 4th graders had a great opportunity to be visited by Dan Guthrie, one of KSL's weathermen.  4th grade science includes learning about Utah's ecosystems and weather, and who better to talk about those things than the local weatherman?  They had the opportunity to ask him questions that ranged from weather-related questions to questions about how to work with a green screen, and what it's like to be on television.  They also had their picture shown on the news.  A HUGE thanks goes out to Dan for making the trip to Goshen to talk to our students, the kids had a great time!
