Goshen Elementary: We Fill Buckets Daily

Goshen students are bucket fillers. At our opening assembly they learned about bucket filling and how important it is. Bucket filling is being kind to others, helpful, caring, etc. Each week students will learn skills to help them be bucket fillers.  They will be encouraged to practice the skills throughout the week.

Goshen students were introduced to our theme for the year by Rip and his friend, Wilson.  (A special thanks to Mr. Jensen, our school counselor, for sharing his talents with us.)



Goshen Back to School Night


Our Back to School Night was a great success!  We met in the gym for our opening.  The PTA approved their yearly budget and then shared the plans for their upcoming Fun Run/Pancake Breakfast/Mini Carnival Fund Raiser (October 11)! 

Cheri Tromble took a few minutes to let parents know that our AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAM will be starting Sept 8, 2014. (Information was sent home with your students – please check backpacks.)

Mrs. DeGraffenried introduced our new theme, “Goshen Elementary: We Fill Buckets Daily” to the parents.  The teachers were introduced and excused.  Parents and students then attended one of three rotations with their teachers.

Afterwards they enjoyed hot dogs, drinks and great company on the back lawn.

A special thanks to Mr. Oberg, Mr. DeGraffenried, Mr. and Mrs. Carter and Mrs. Bermudez for their help outside!

Thank you for supporting us last night!

Eduction Fair


There were many participants in this years Eduaction Fair! Categories such as Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies were a hit! Congratulations to all who participated. It was another successful year!

K9's Help!


The closing assembly welcomed two K9's to demonstrate how police dogs help save lives. Dogs are more agile and are less fearful than humans. There are many types of dogs used in police work. Some are used for their sniffing ability, some have incredible jaw strength, and they all love to protect their human. It was nice to learn not only how we can stay safe this week but also learn about our community helpers.

Buckle Up for Safety!


Deputy Tindle demonstrates the importance of wearing a seatbelt when riding in a car. Even when the car is going very slow, the whiplash upon impact is serious. The students enjoyed the simulation. Thanks for another important lesson this week!
