The Summer Packet Extravaganza is a reward for those students who complete a math, reading, and writing packet for their grade level.  This year the students got to jump in jumping houses, cruise down blow-up slides, joust in a blow-up cage, golf, play basketball, have three-legged races, waltz around numbers to music, and dunk teachers in a dunking tank.  It was quite the "Extravaganza".  Congratulations to all of those students who worked extremely hard to complete their summer packet!

EARS for Fluency

EARS for Fluency

Denise Ray is the new literacy specialist at Goshen Elementary.  She has been going around the classrooms teaching students what it means to use fluency in their reading.  Pictured is a student wearing large ears to remind students to use their EARS (Expression, Accuracy, Rate, and Smoothness) while reading.

Mr. Welburn doubled

Mr. Welburn and Mr. Welburn, you tell me which is which.
Mr. Welburn is the one wearing the BYU hat and tie.

Goshen Elementary is participating in the Road to Success program again this year.  Last year the school set a goal to read 1.5 million minutes.  They reached this goal by the end of the year.  At an assembly recently Mr. Welburn, the principal, had the students thinking he was a magician when he disappeared behind a curtain and showed up on the other side right away.

The students quickly found out that he is a twin.  Not only is the principal a double, but the students will double their reading minutes. The school has set a goal to read 3 million minutes this year.

Goshen students are on their way to their reading goal already!

Tour of Utah

On Thursday, August 20, students at Goshen Elementary took a break from their second day of school to cheer on the Tour of Utah bike riders as they road through Goshen, Utah.  The Tour of Utah is a six day bike race consisting of different stages.  On Thursday the riders began Stage Two of the race at Thanksgiving Point in Lehi and made their way along the west side of Utah Lake to finish at Mount Nebo.
