On December 19, Goshen School held the annual Christmas Program, followed by our Christmas Books and Candy Canes activity. Each grade sang or performed a dance with actions to different songs from their favorite, Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer cartoon program. The program was a fun celebration for the students to practice and share with their families and community.
After the Christmas program, the school library, halls and classrooms were filled with students, families, teachers and friends spending time reading their favorite Christmas books and enjoying a tasty candy cane.
L. Kobie Wilkerson, award winning author, visited eight elementary schools in Utah, to teach students about writing and to share his love of reading and education.
While at Goshen School, Mr. Wilkerson spent lunch with the faculty answering questions that they had about his teaching and consulting background. Afterwards, assemblies were held in small groups so he could share how he developed his book ideas, share digital versions of his book as well as answer questions the students had about him. Copies of his book "Queen Infinity" were provided for each teacher, where he gladly signed each copy. Goshen students and teachers enjoyed his inspirational message to find their inner writer. Thank you Kobie for making reading interesting and fun!
For his Eagle Scout Project, Tucker Neil Brown painted areas of the Goshen School playground. Tucker painted a multiplication table, number line with 25 positive and 25 negative numbers, and he also repainted the 4 square and basketball areas of our playground. Thank you Tucker for your hard work for the students at our school!

I need your help with two issues at Goshen Elementary:
- We are having problems with vandalism in our upper and lower grade bathrooms. Although we have Bathroom Monitors, the problem has not been solved. Yesterday afternoon the district installed security camera’s in our hallways so that we can monitor who goes in and out of the bathrooms and hopefully pinpoint who is involved in the vandalism.
- Theft is becoming a daily occurrence at school. During the book fair last week we had several books and toys stolen. Money has been taken from backpacks and jackets. Food has been stolen. Students have had personal items stolen from them. We are also using the camera’s to help with this issue.
I am very saddened by the vandalism and thefts. I am working closely with our faculty and staff in resolving these issues. Students caught participating in these activities will be issued a ticket, restitution sought and may be suspended from school (Nebo School District Policy).
I appreciate your help in encouraging your children to respect school property. Goshen Elementary is a great school. Working together we can keep it that way.
