Service Project Completed in Mrs. Openshaws Class

Mrs. Openshaw's 6th Grade participated in a service project on Monday.  Over the past couple of weeks, with the help from students and parents, the class gathered items to be donated to The Ronald McDonald House in Salt Lake City.  The Ronald McDonald House is a place for families of patients at Primary Children's Hospital and the University of Utah Hospitals to stay while their loved ones are being treated.  Many times, in an emergency, family members don't have time to gather supplies for their stay, so they are given a care package with daily necesseties that they can use.  

The class gathered items ranging from Shampoo and soap, to activities to keep both children and adults occupied when they aren't at the hospital with their loved ones.  The class broke into groups and were responsible for putting a care package together for a family.  The class was able to put enough care packages together to help 6 families, with the remaining odds and ends being gathered together to donate also.  The care packages will be delivered to The Ronald McDonald House this weekend.

SafeUT Awareness Days February 22 & 23

In light of the recent events in Florida and other tragedies that have happened around the country, Nebo School District is teaming up with KSL on February 22, 2018, as we Stand Up for a Safe Utah. Utah has a very powerful resource and that is the SafeUT app.  As you all know, the SafeUT app provides real-time crisis intervention and has been proven to save lives and stopped planned school attacks.   Our goal is to make sure that every parent, student and educator is aware of the app and has it downloaded on their phone.  Throughout the day, KSL will be highlighting all that the app can do, the history behind it, the success stories and much more. In addition, there will be some fun for the students. Below is the outline to encourage student involvement:·        Encourage your friends to download the app·        Use hashtag #SafeUT on posts  KSL Contest: 

  • Individuals will be able to share a screenshot of their phone with the app downloaded for a chance to win a $50 visa card

 

  • These screenshots will need to be posted in the contest on the KSL TV Facebook page

 

  • The school that is tagged the most by their students will receive 100 pizzas from KSL!

 

  • The contest will start Thursday, February 22 and Friday, February 23 at 3 p.m.

Winter Kindness Carnival

The students at Goshen School were rewarded for all of their hard work and kind deeds they did during Kindness Week with a fun carnival.  There were lots of winter themed fun and games.  We also had 7th graders from the local Jr. Highs visiting for their job shadows who helped with the games.  We would like to thank these students and our awesome technicians for helping running the carnival.  The kids had lots of fun!
