Goshen Elementary is the BOMB!

Firefighter Cindy in her gear!

Today was the kick off for our Health and Safety Week! Most of our students and faculty showed up in RED! We also had a visit from the firefighters of Goshen! They talked with the students about fire safety, what to do if there is a fire, and their special gear. Firefighter Cindy also talked about how kids don't need to be afraid of the firefighters when they are in their big gear, they are our best friends and are there to help. It was an awesome presentation! We are lucky to have awesome community members that are involved and support our students' safety.

Speed Dating in the Library!


Our awesome librarian, Mrs. Staheli, helped open the students' eyes to new books last week! She had a "Speed Date a Book" activity during the week of Valentines. The students had about a minute to check out each book. They were also given paper to take notes and titles down so they could go back and find them. Goshen students are lucky to have Mrs. Staheli in the library! 

Kindergarten Registration Moving to Summer


Dear Parents and Guardians:

This message is for parents who have children entering kindergarten this fall. Please forward this to anyone who needs this information but may not receive this email.

Kindergarten registration, traditionally held in March, will be moved to the summer and combined with grades 1-12. More detailed information regarding summer K-6 registration will be sent out to you before the end of the school year.

Parents can prepare now for registering their kindergarten children by making sure they have a birth certificate and that their child is current on the following immunizations: DTap, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Polio, Varicella and MMR by the end of July.

Kindergarten screening for our Optional Extended Day Kindergarten (OEK) will be held during the first week of school when all kindergartner's are given the required state assessment (KEEP).

We appreciate your help getting the word out. Please contact the office if you have any questions. Thank you.
