Our 2nd Annual Goshen Marathon has begun!! We are very excited to participate again this year. The students will be running 25 miles while at school until mid May. We will get together on a Saturday in May and run the last 1.2 miles at the school! **More info to come.  We love having a running pro like Mrs. Rucker to help motivate us! 

New Student Council


Our 6th grade students have the opportunity to serve on our student council each term. They are awesome examples for our younger students and help with many different things. They help with morning announcements, hall duty, monthly themes, and much more! Ms. Carter is a great advisor!
