On Friday, September 21, Goshen School held their annual Fall Carnival. Students and their families enjoyed an evening of fun games, rides, face painting, bouncing houses and food. The PTA sponsored this even to help raise funds for our school. A special "Thank You" to everyone who helped make this event possible.
The students at Goshen Elementary School have been enjoying the recently painted playground area. In August, the Novell Volunteer Project employees and the United Way provided the people and paint that made a wonderful brightly colored area possible. Thank you Novell Volunteers and the United Way!

Principal Garth Bird is retiring this year after working for 40 years in Nebo School District. Mr. Bird has been the principal at Goshen Elementary for the last two years. Here is a poem written for Mr. Garth Bird.
Garth Bird is retiring, yes it’s true,
After 40 years of service, he says he’s through.
A better principal you will never find,
He is dedicated, patient and really kind.
When it comes to teaching or leading the school,
He could always enforce the rules while remaining cool.
He has touched many lives with his loving ways,
Faculty, students and parents will treasure these days.
Congratulations to him on a job well done,
Bonnie and his family are in for some fun.
His time in Nebo School District has come to an end,
For all of us that worked with him,
we’ll have a lifelong friend.
Shawnie Drury was selected by the teachers of Goshen Elementary School as the Outstanding Classified Employee of the Year. Mrs. Drury was selected because of her superb work with the fifth grade students for whom she serves as a Title I technician. She tutors students in all subject areas, sharing her thoughts on how to do math problems, and how she figures out the plot of a story with her students. She works with many students in a regular reading group each day. Mrs. Drury is appreciated by the teachers and adored by the students.
Each year Goshen Elementary has an Education Fair where students can explore and learn more about concepts that interest them. They may participate in Language Arts, Science, Math or Social Studies activities. The students are required to make a visual, showing what they did for their project. They present their projects to judges and receive medals and collectors' coins. This is a great event. One that Goshen looks forward to each year. Pictured is the grand champion in sixth grade, Brandon Jasperson and the reserve champion, Savannah Black.
