We had a fun time on Halloween this year at Goshen School. We had our annual Halloween Parade and many of the classes had Halloween Parties some time during the day. We had some great costumes this year, it was fun to see the creativity in some of them. We just want to say thank you to all of the parents that came to school and helped with class parties! We couldn't pull them off without you!
We had such a fun Halloween this year at Goshen! All of the students were ablet to show off their costumes at our annual Halloween Parade. Each class went through the school to each classroom to show off their costumes, and then through the gym to show them off to their parents. It's a fun tradition that the students look forward to every year.
On Tuesday, the school had the first term attendance breakfast. Those students that were absent two or less times during the first term were treated to breakfast. Breakfast was served by Mr. Carter, Mrs. Penrod and Mrs. DeGraffenried, and the kids had a lot of fun.
For the second term, the attendence party will also include tardies. Every two tardies will equal one absence. Please work hard with your student to have them here, on time, every morning.
The Halloween Parade will be held on Friday, Oct 30, 2015. STUDENTS CANNOT BRING/WEAR MASKS AT SCHOOL. Teachers must be able to recognize ALL STUDENTS. IF THE COSTUME HAS A WEAPON OF ANY KIND, IT CANNOT BE BROUGHT TO SCHOOL. PLEASE SUPPORT THE SCHOOL WITH THESE ITEMS. IT IS FOR THE SAFETY OF ALL OUR STUDENTS AND STAFF. Make-up and hair coloring are allowed.
Pre-school age students and students who are not enrolled in Goshen Elementary will not be allowed to participate in the Halloween Parade. The Halloween Parade will start at 9:15, and the PM Kindergarten parade will start at 12:40. Parents and family wanting to watch the parade may go to the gym. Only parade participants will be allowed in the halls.
We just want to thank the parents and students of Goshen Elementary for being patient last week while we had sand in our water system here at the school. We provided bottled water for everyone while the issue was taken care of. We just wanted everyone to know that the lines have been completely flushed out, and the water no longer has sand in it. Thank you again for your patience.
On Monday, students attended an assembly and learned about the importance of R.E.D. (Read Every Day). They will be keeping track of their reading minutes and recording them in computers every week. They made personal reading goals and class reading goals to help them with their reading. Mrs. DeGraffenried also talked to them about Having a Plan and beginning with the end in mind. The student counsel picked students from the audience and they were asked to make a circle, a square and a playground out of legos. Once they were finished, they showed off their masterpieces and many said they built Goshen School's playground. Mrs. DeGraffenried then asked them why they didn't build the McKay School of Education over at BYU, because that's what SHE had in mind when she told them what to build. This activity showed the students that unless you have a final goal in mind, you won't know where to go. Thanks Mrs. DeGraffenried for putting together a fun assembly!
A huge congratulations goes out to Miss Brinkerhoff. She submitted a grant to the Nebo Foundation for new books for her Kindergarteners and received $320. This is an awesome opportunity for her students to reveive some much needed books. Thank you Miss Brinkerhoff for caring for your students!
