Mrs. Openshaw receives the Crystal Apple Award


Mrs. Openshaw was selected by her colleagues to receive the Crystal Apple Award.  The award was presented during faculty meeting by Craig Havey.  Her colleagues said the following:

She has a positive attitude with her students and her colleagues. She works hard to make her classroom a wonderful place of learning. She expects a lot from her students and pushes them to go farther than they believed they could go. She goes the extra mile as a teacher. She has innovative ideas and tries to find more and more ways to help her students learn. It is a pleasure working with her.

She often takes extra jobs or volunteers for a committee to help improve our school.  She works tirelessly to help her students succeed both as students and as individuals trying to find their way. She thinks outside the box and finds ways to make learning fun and engaging for everyone. Her students feel safe, respected, and excited to be in her classroom every day. 

She brought the arts into her class by doing the opera last year and this year. She has positive communication with the students and parents. She is great at helping fellow teachers and staff.

Inclement Weather Reminder


This is a reminder that with colder temperatures on their way, it's important that you send your students to school with coats.  Unless Mrs. DeGraffenried determines that it's to be an inside day, students will be required to be outside during recess and lunch recess, and when they don't have coats, it's miserable for them.  Please make sure you write their names inside their coats and hoodies!  We have a LOT of hoodies/jackets in our lost and found already, so if your student is missing one, please come into the office and see if it's been turned in.

It is also VERY important to remember, especially as winter approaches, that the school DOES NOT open until 8:00.  PLEASE DO NOT send your students to school before 8:00.  If they are here before that time, they will need to wait outside until the doors are open, and it is getting way too cold for them to be waiting.  Thank you for helping us with this problem.


Homework Lab


We are excited to offer a Homework Lab again this year!  Mr. Hunt will be the teacher helping in the lab this year and will be having the lab in the Title 1 Room (used to be the Skills Room) every Tuesday and Thursday from 8:00-8:40.  If your student is struggling with thier homework, and your not able to help them, this is a great opportunity for them to find some help with it.  Please take advantage of the lab, it's here for your students benefit.  

Education Fair is Coming!


The Education Fair is coming!  All Literature entries are due next Tuesday (November 7th) at the front office so there is time for them to be read and judged.  All other entries in the Math, Science and Social Studies categories will be due in the office by Tuesday, November 14th and judging will take place during school on Thursday, November 16th.  If you have any questions about the Education Fair, please call the school.

Halloween at Goshen School


Yesterday, Goshen School celebrated Halloween with our Annual Halloween Parade and class parties.  We hope that everyone had a fun night trick or treating with their family and friends!

Fifth Graders Show What They Know


During Monday's Falcon Pride Assembly, the fifth grade classes were able to show the school something that they have been working on during the first term.  They sang a song about the states and their Capitals.  They sang and danced, and had a great time!  Good job Fifth Graders!  Thanks for showing us what you know!
