Today we had our annual Turkey Gobble and Strut assembly at school. Two students from each class were voted to represent a gobbler and a strutter, and then competed against each other during the assembly. We have some great turkeys roaming the halls at Goshen Elementary, but this year, the winners were Ira Palfreyman from Ms. Adam's Fourth Grade class, who won the strutting contest, and Owen Cottle from Mr. Proctor's Fifth Grade class, who won the gobble contest. Congratulations to these two boys, and good job to all of our participants!
We would like to thank the second and sixth grade classes for the great Veteran's Day Assembly that they performed on Friday. They presented the assembly for the student body on Friday morning, and then invited their parents and the Veteran's in our community to come enjoy the program on Friday night. It was well attended, and there were many tears shed as they paid tribute to those that have, and still do, fight for our country. Many of our favorite patriotic songs were sung, along with a few new favorites. The second and sixth grade teachers would like to thank the support from the parents, and the community. Goshen School would like to thank all of those that have served in the military, for protecting our freedoms...

It's that time again! Fourth Grade's Parents and Pastries will be held next Monday, November 21st at 1:45 pm in the library. If you have a 4th grader, you are invited to bring your favorite picture book (or a chapter from your favorite novel) to read to a group of students. Watch for a reminder to come home later this week. We love having parents read to our students! It shows them how important reading is, and that it can be fun!
Goshen School's First Graders made shirts that they get to wear on Zero Hero Day, which is every tenth day of school. Remember, if you have a first grader, remember to send them to school in their Zero Hero shirts on Zero Hero Day! (Look for reminders on your student's weekly newsletter!)
We would like to congratulate our librarian, Mrs. Stahlei, for applying for and receiving a grant through the Nebo Foundation! She received $400 to buy new books for our school library! Goshen School is so lucky to have her as our librarian! Thanks, Mrs. Staheli, for watching out for all of the students at our school!
Goshen School's second and sixth grades are proud to present their Veteran's Day Program. They will be performing two times on Friday, November 11th. They will perform for the students of the school at 9:30 am, and then again that evening for their parents and the public at 6:30 at the school. They would like to extend an invitation for everyone, to come see what they have worked so hard to put together. If you or a loved one is a memeber of the military, either active duty, or retired, they would like to honor you that night. Please come enjoy a night of patriotic songs and help us honor our military.
Goshen Elementary would like to give a huge thanks to the PTA for organizing a successful Halloween Carnival this year! After dinner, which consisted of sloppy joes, chips and drinks, the students were able to play games for fun Halloween prizes, have their picture taken at the photo booth, and walk through the spook alley. Throughout the night, prizes were given to students who entered the jack-o-lantern contest, the bottle decorating contest and the costume contest. Thanks to everyone who helped, whether it was helping with dinner, running the games, or donating items to the classroom auction baskets. Without you, the Halloween Carnival wouldn't have been successful!
Halloween is on Monday, October 31st. We will be having our Annual Halloween parade at 9:30 am. (PM Kindergarten will have their parade at 12:30) Parents, if you will meet in the gym, the students will make their way around to each of the classrooms, and then down through the gym so you can take some pictures. Please remember that masks and weapons (real or pretend) are not allowed, and because of the "scary clown" trend going on right now, we ask that your students don't come dressed as clowns this year.
Don't forget about the Halloween Carnival tomorrow night at the school at 6:00 pm! (Friday, October 28). Come dressed in your costume for a costume contest, bring your carved pumpkin for the Pumpkin Carving Contest, bid on a class baket in our silent auction, and come win prizes at the Teacher's Games! Dinner will be served, $4.00 a plate (includes a Sloppy Joe, chips and a drink). Game wristbands will be available for $5.00.
