The Foothill Cloggers came and shared their clogging talents with our school. Many of the cloggers attend or have attended Goshen Elementary School. It was a fun assembly for students, parents, grandparents and teachers to enjoy. Thank you Tara Osborn for bringing your clogging group to our school.
At Goshen School we celebrated a week of reading activities, with the annual "Reading Across America". On the last day students and faculty came to school dress-up like their favorite Dr. Seuss character and had a school read-a-thon in their classrooms at the same time!

Ok Kindergarten, "START YOUR ENGINES!"
This was the call being said in the halls of Goshen School, to start the annual Kindy 500 race around the school. The kindergarten classes joined together to have a day of learning and fun! Students had help from home to make and design their own unique vehicles. They drove along the highways of America, from the White House, a visit with Betsy Ross who made our first flag, learning about our National Bird the Eagle, and to other famous places around this gteat country.
Goshen School students spent their recess time jump roping, to better prepare for the contest at the end of the week. It was exciting to see how long the class winners could jump! The winners of the grade level jump roping contest are pictured.
Thank you, Mrs. Savage our PTA Health and Safety representative for planning a fun week. Also, Intermountain Health Care for the free jump ropes and Fowers Fruit Farm for the free apples.
During the week of February 23-27, the PTA at Goshen School has been busy teaching the students about being health and safe. The kick-off assembly included healthy tips and a fun visit from the Utah County Sheriff’s K-9 Unit. Students and teachers enjoyed watching the dogs sniff-out drugs and attack the K-9 officer with the specially padded suit on. The K-9 Officers explained their extensive training with the dogs and answered the many questions that the students had about the dogs. Our school gained a newer appreciation for the Deputies, Sheriff, Officers and K-9 dogs that help to protect our communities.
To help celebrate the 100th day of school, the students came dressed up to look like centurions in the year 3008! The 1st grade classrooms and hallways were crowded with walkers, wheel chairs and many walking canes to help the students move along slowly during their school day. We had many fun 100 day activities and the teachers said that looked and felt like they were 100 years old!
