We have a great opportunity to be visited by a local teenage author, McKenzie Wagner. She is only 15 years old and already has 4 published novels. She will be visiting our school on Friday (Jan. 29) and will be visiting with our 4th, 5th, and 6th grade sudents about herself and her writing. We are so excited to meet her and hear about her successes. Each teacher has copies of her books if you or your student would like to read them.
A huge congratulations goes out to Mrs. Openshaw. She submitted a grant to the Nebo Foundation for new books for our Spanish students and received $228 to go towards novels in Spanish for our older kids. Thank you Mrs. Openshaw for caring for Goshen students!
A huge congratulations goes out to Mrs. Burningham! She submitted a grant to the Nebo Foundation for some Chromebooks for her second graders and received $600. This is an awesome opportunity for her students to reveive some much needed technology in her classroom. Thank you Mrs. Burningham for caring for your students!
Thursday is the last day of Term 2!! It's crazy to think the year is already half over. Because it's the end of the term, there will be no school on Friday. There will also be no school on Monday in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Have a fun and LONG weekend!
Friday is the last day of school before Christmas break. The last day of our Spirit Week dress ups will be Red and Green day, so have your kids dress in Christmas colors! Our sing along program will also be Friday at 2:30 in the gym. Parents are invited to come. School will resume on Monday, January 4th, 2016. The faculty and staff of Goshen Elementary would like to wish our students and their families a safe and merry Christmas!
Goshen's annual Christmas Program will be a sing-along this year. Each grade has chosen a song to sing, and then the entire school will join in singing during the finale. Parents are invited to join us Friday at 2:30 in the gym for some fun singing to bring in the Christmas holiday.
The school district is offering some computer coding classes for students in the 4-6 grades starting in January. If your child is interested in computers, these would be fun classes for them to take. The class will not be offered here, but there is a class at Wilson School in Payson if you're interested. The cost for the beginners class will be $19 and will be held every Wednesday for 4 weeks and the cost for an Intermediate class will be $39 and will be held every Wednesday for 10 weeks. If you have any questions, there is a link to the flyer with more information, including info on how to sign up.
