Goshen School celebrated National Walk to School Day today. Spirit the Falcon, Goshen Mayor Fred Jensen, Deputy Poulsen from the Utah County Sheriff and Mrs. DeGraffenried all welcomed our students at the crosswalk as they came to school. We would like to give a HUGE thanks to Loretta Brailsford, our crossing guard, who makes sure our students cross the highway safely on their way to and from school every day.
It's time for our first SEP meeting of the year! The teachers are looking forward to meeting with the parents of their students, so please make sure to sign up for a time to meet with your child's teacher! You can find the sign up for each teacher in the link below:
The 2nd Grade Egg Drop was Friday, September 29th. This was a hands on science experience in gravity! Students had to “package” their raw egg so that hopefully, it did not break. At 1:45 Mr. Carter used a hoist to raise our eggs to 18 feet into the air where he dropped them for parents and students to watch. Students then had to open up their packaging to see if their egg was still intact. Students celebrated the experience with a victory cheer or a chicken dance. It was "egg"citing for all and we can't wait to do it again next year.
We had an awesome opportunity to have Miss Utah 2017, JessiKate Riley, come and visit our school on Tuesday. She talked to us about bullying, and how to handle it if someone is bullying you. Her catch phrase is "Shake it off, and take a step". She also entertained us by playing her violin, whose name is Sam and is 115 years old. He is from Austria. One fun fact about her, is that our own LeighAnn Penrod was her 1st grade teacher! Mrs. Penrod's class sure thought that was neat! We want to thank Miss Riley for taking time out of her busy schedule to come visit Goshen. She left a great message behind!
