Don't forget about Penny Wars going on this week! Any pennies put in each grades bucket counts towards the grade's total, and any silver/bills put into their bucket goes AGAINST their total. So far the faculty is winning!!! Penny wars will be going on through Friday. This is a great time to get rid of those pesky pennies that weigh your pockets and purse down. All proceeds will go towards helping a family in need in our area.
The book fair is at our school this week. It will be open Monday-Friday 8:30-9:00 and during lunch from 11:30-12:30. It will also be open during SEP's on Wednesday from 2:30-8:30. This year's theme is monsters, and each teacher has decorated a box for you to vote on. The winning teacher will receive free books for their classroom, so make sure you stop in an vote. Each teacher has also picked out a few books and put in their boxes for you to purchase for their classrooms if you would like to donate a book, and any and all books purchased at the book fair will put money towards books for our school.

On Wednesday, the 2nd grade and 6th grade honored our local Veterans by performing an excellent Veteran's Day Program. It included a slide show, a special video and a light show put on by the students themselves. They have worked very hard for the past 6 weeks to make this special, and they did a great job! Thanks to the Student Council who helped behind the scenes. Goshen Elementary would like to say a special THANKS to all of those who have served in the Armed Forces, whether in the past or right now, for working so hard to keep our country free!
