OverDrive Offers FREE eBooks For Nebo Students

Attributions: 

Nebo School District is gearing up for summer break. While summer presents an opportunity to relax and enjoy the sunshine, we want our students to continue to find ways to learn while away from the classroom.

We have an exciting reading service available through OverDrive (http://***.lib.overdrive.com). The OverDrive collection provides free 24/7 access to eBooks and audiobooks. What better way to engage your student’s mind than through reading?

This summer, the OverDrive Summer Read (http://resources.overdrive.com/summer-read) program will offer a collection of Juvenile and Young Adult titles that will be prominently displayed in our digital collection (http://***.lib.overdrive.com) for quick and easy unlimited access from June 7 – August 7, 2017.

How does it work?
To use OverDrive, students browse the secure website of more than 3,784 titles, log in with their school credentials, borrow, and enjoy on computers, tablets, smart phones, and eReader devices.

Encourage your student to check OverDrive out today!

Boredom is not an option this summer.

Mrs. Burningham is retiring after many fun years of teaching.  The staff and students at Goshen Elementary feel so blessed to have had Mrs. Burningham in our school.  She has touched many young lives throughout her years as a teacher, and we would like to celebrate this next step with her.  We will be having an Open House Monday, May 15th from 3:30-5:30 in the auditorium here at the school.  Come take some time to visit with her and wish her will on the next step of her journey.  We sure will miss seeing her around school, but wish her the best!  Thank you for your hard work, Mrs. Burningham!  WE LOVE YOU!

Teacher Appreciation Week

Attributions: 

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week at Goshen School!  The PTA has a lot of fun things planned for the teachers at school this week!  There has been a little bit of a change this year though.  The students will have the opportunity to show their teachers every day how much they appreciate them by participating in the daily activity, if they would like.  There was a note sent home with every student last week, outlining what they could do daily, to show their appreciation.  

Monday:  Wear your teacher's favorite color

Tuesday:  Bring them their favorite drink

Wednesday:  Bring them a school supply

Thursday:  Bring them a treat

Friday:  Write them a thank you note

A huge thanks goes out to Jaida Renzello for spearheading this busy week, and all of the parents who worked hard decorating the teacher's doors!
