To wrap up Kindness Week, and all of the fun activities this week, we wanted to say a special thank you to our many Community Helpers. From the PTA, to the Utah County Sheriff's Office, from the Goshen, Genola & Santaquin Fire Departments to our local City Workers, each class made a poter for a special group of volunteers to show them how much we appreciate them. They were all invited to an assembly held in their honor, and presented with the posters. What a great way to end our Kindness Week, to show how much we appreciate those that help us the most!
On Wednesday January 17th the Hogle Zoo came to Goshen School's 2nd grade to teach us about habitats. Students had the opportunity to observe and sort items from two habitats in Utah (desert and wetlands). The zoo also introduced animals from each habitat. It was an experience to remember.
The new student council was introduced at Monday's Kindness Week Kickoff Assembly on Monday. They are so excited to be involved in school activities for the second half of the year. We would like to give a HUGE THANK YOU to the outgoing members of the student council and let them know that we appreciate their help during the first semester. They were great!
On Monday morning, the students attended a kickoff assembly about our Kindness Challenge happening this week. All students were given instructions about the Kindness Challenge, where K-2 students were encouraged to do 25 kind acts this week and the 3-6 students were encouraged to do 50. We have lots of fun activities planned this week! It's going to be a fun one!
We are so excited to participate in the Great Kindness Challenge this year! The challenge runs all week, next week (1/22-1/26), and our students are going to have the opportunity to do random acts of kindness throughout the entire week. We have such a great school, and great students, we are looking forward to seeing them do some great things for those around them.
