During a presentation at Goshen Elementary, fourth graders learned a little bit about some of the Indian tribes that once lived in Utah. They learned some history and were excited to know that the presenters were real Indians. Students saw some of the clothing and things that were used by the Native American tribes. Students are now excited to learn more about the history of Utah. Pictured are the students learning hand signs that were used to help the tribes communicate with one another.
Goshen Elementary's citizens of the month for October were Delaney Steele, Keelee Bingham, Steven Ward, Hannah Hazelet, Melody Kenison, Audrey Peterson, Oscar Carreno, Alyssa Zohner, Layne Shepherd, Tate Strasburg, Weston Thomas, Gentry Conklin, Kayden Walters, Joseline Macedo, Josie Penrod, Jose Gomez, Blake Bagley, Dawsen Tew, Kennedy Cowan, and Sydney Hacking. These students were chosen by their teachers for showing October's theme of honesty.
Keelee Bingham, of Elberta who is a kindergarten student at Goshen Elementary School, had her name drawn out of a box containing names of all of the students who have been reading this last quarter at school. Keelee is pictured with her teacher, Mrs. Lori Staheli, along with her prize: a color TV and VCR. Also winning a prize, but is not pictured, was Devin Johnson, of Genola who is a fifth grade student in Mr. Travis Proctor's class, who won a gift certificate for a new bicycle from WalMart. WalMart is one of the major sponsors of the Ken Garff "Roads to Success" reading program which is motivating the Goshen School students to read so much. Who wouldn't read, if you could win a new bike?
Students at Goshen Elementary were excited to have author, Stephen Gashler, visit their school. He got students interested in his book, The Bent Sword, by bringing in some of the characters and showing students the importance of reading. He had the students laughing at his jokes and excited to read and not just watch TV all day. Some students were even lucky enough to purchase a book and have Mr. Gashler sign it.
