PEAK Award Winner: Mrs. Oberg

Submitted by l.degraffenried on Mon, 09/15/2014 - 19:42

Congratulations Mrs. Oberg!!!!

On Wednesday, September 10, 2014 at Nebo School District Board Meeting, Mrs. Oberg received the PEAK Award. (Positive Energy and Kindness Award)

“For the last 11 years, Brenda has been the first SMILING face you see as you enter the building, and usually the last STILL SMILING face as you leave. I truly believe that Brenda Oberg sets a positive and caring tone for our entire school and community. What's truly amazing is that she continues SMILING even after the countless and stressful hours that she puts in. Brenda is also the champion of Goshen's Education Fair.”

“Brenda exemplifies the PEAK Award! Her dedication to Goshen Elementary is legendary! Her attention to detail is magical - she knows every student’s first and last name. She can take care of a scraped knee or monkey-bar blistered hand and bring the smiles back. Brenda helps teachers and staff - answering their leave portal and Kelly Services questions with great patience and kindness. She truly understands what it means to ‘BE THE MAGIC.’"
(She was nominated by Mr. Jason Dickie and Mrs. DeGraffenried)

Goshen Elementary: We Fill Buckets Daily

Submitted by l.degraffenried on Fri, 08/29/2014 - 14:39

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

Submitted by l.degraffenried on Fri, 08/29/2014 - 13:44


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!
