Sixth-grade students at Goshen Elementary just finished a six week typing program. The students practiced each day to improve their typing skills and speed. The fastest typers are Carson Bateman with 75 words per minute and Nathan Staheli with 60 words per minute. Nice work sixth graders!
Students at Goshen Elementary collected food for the local food bank. Students were glad to share what they had at home to help others in need. Charity Pieper said, "The food drive is a very good activity, especially around Thanksgiving so we can be thankful. I am glad we have this program and can help people in need." Each classroom collected food for a week and the student council came around to each room and gathered all the food to distribute to families in the area. Thanks to all those who donated items for the food drive!
The fourth-grade students at Goshen Elementary spent time as Paleontologists studying many different Utah fossils. The Museum on the Move came and visited the students and allowed them to see many of the fossils they have at the museum. The students had a great time exploring, observing, wondering, and making inferences about plants and animals from Utah's past.
Goshen Elementary students started celebrating Halloween a little early this year. Going along with Red Ribbon Week students wore their Halloween costumes to school on Friday, October 23 to show that "doing drugs is scary." Students participated in a parade around the school to show off their costumes.
That evening the school had their Fall Carnival. The PTA planned many fun activities. Some of the activities were bowling, dart boards, ring tosses, a haunted house, getting Halloween tattoes, and eating lots of goodies. Thank you PTA and volunteers for helping Goshen have an exciting evening!
Students in Miss Samantha Jensen's fourth grade class at Goshen Elementary have been learning about the water cycle and weather. They made water cycle models and have been enjoying seeing the water cycle work inside their bottles. Students had to cut their grass since they were receiving so much precipitation inside their bottles.
Students in Mrs. Margaret Allinson’s and Mrs. Audy Lott’s third-grade class have been learning about force and motion. Each student was asked to make a catapult at home with no real specific instructions given on what it had to look like. Students were creative and made catapults using legos, rocks, spoons, sticks, rulers or even squash.
On Friday, October 2, students brought their catapults to school and launched marshmallows outside. Mrs. Allinson even brought her huge catapult and launched candy to the students that made their catapults. Students enjoyed learning about force and motion and putting their knowledge to use with their catapults.
