Thanks to the PTA for a wonderful Health and Safety Week. The students were challenged during the week to make healthy choices and to do the things that would, also enhance their safety. As a culminating activity the students rotated through stations from seat belt safety, to fire safety. Thank you to the Goshen PTA, Utah County Sheriff Dept. for the seat belt crash cars and the Goshen Fire Department.
With the checker flag, they were off and running! The kindergarten classes were in a race for the Kindy 500 at Goshen School. They drove their way through the halls to greet all of the school with their fancy hot rods! Kindergarten students drove around America learning about our wonderful nation, such as the bald eagle, Lady Liberty and a stop to meet Betsy Ross (Mrs. DeGraffenried) and learning about other symbols of the USA!
The students at Goshen School enjoyed another fun “It Pays to Read” assembly. Students earned a chance to be picked in a drawing for prizes and a chance to shoot basketballs for money. Thank you teachers, staff and parents at Goshen School, for your hard work and time to help inspire our students to read!
GOSHEN ELEMENTARY placed 7th out of 24 schools!
