For his Eagle Scout Project, Tucker Neil Brown painted areas of the Goshen School playground.

I need your help with two issues at Goshen Elementary:
- We are having problems with vandalism in our upper and lower grade bathrooms. Although we have Bathroom Monitors, the problem has not been solved. Yesterday afternoon the district installed security camera’s in our hallways so that we can monitor who goes in and out of the bathrooms and hopefully pinpoint who is involved in the vandalism.
- Theft is becoming a daily occurrence at school. During the book fair last week we had several books and toys stolen. Money has been taken from backpacks and jackets. Food has been stolen. Students have had personal items stolen from them. We are also using the camera’s to help with this issue.
I am very saddened by the vandalism and thefts. I am working closely with our faculty and staff in resolving these issues. Students caught participating in these activities will be issued a ticket, restitution sought and may be suspended from school (Nebo School District Policy).
I appreciate your help in encouraging your children to respect school property. Goshen Elementary is a great school. Working together we can keep it that way.
Goshen Elementary School held a very special assembly to honor some of our Veterans from the Santaquin and Goshen area. The Veterans told the wars that they had fought in and Commander Ted Jones, shared a moving rememberance of our flag and the love we have for our country. At the end of the assembly students silently followed the Veterans outside for a respectful and solemn flag burning ceremony. During the burning of the flag, taps was played in honor of those Veterans who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
Goshen Elementary school would like to thank the Veterans who participated in the flag ceremony. They were: American Legion Post 84 from Santaquin, Ted Jones (commander), Floyd Farrel Bott, Richard Crook, Clay Jensen, Don Gilson, Richard Johnson, Clement K. Kester, Ira Savage, and Sterling Spencer. Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6395 from Spanish Fork, Harold Thomas, also Veterans Craig R. Campbell and Clair Carter.
Students at Goshen Elementary recently shared a week learning about being Drug Free and being a Anti –Bully school. The Student Council planned a fun week of activities that included red and purple anti drug and bully colors day, wear sun glasses day to Shade Out Drugs, a Black Day to black out drugs, and a Crazy Hair Day. As a culminating activity the whole school launched red and purple balloons into the air over Goshen.
The 3rd grade students received free dictionaries to have and use while they are at school. The students will then be allowed to take the books home for their future studies at the end of the school year.
The Goshen Elementary 3rd grade students would like to thank Elite Yoshukai Karate in Santaquin and Linn Wright for the wonderful dictionaries that are greatly appreciated.
