Winner of the Turkey Gobble contest

Today we had our annual Turkey Gobble and Strut assembly at school.  Two students from each class were voted to represent a gobbler and a strutter, and then competed against each other during the assembly.  We have some great turkeys roaming the halls at Goshen Elementary, but this year, the winners were Ira Palfreyman from Ms. Adam's Fourth Grade class, who won the strutting contest, and Owen Cottle from Mr. Proctor's Fifth Grade class, who won the gobble contest.  Congratulations to these two boys, and good job to all of our participants!

Veteran's Day Program a Huge Success


We would like to thank the second and sixth grade classes for the great Veteran's Day Assembly that they performed on Friday.  They presented the assembly for the student body on Friday morning, and then invited their parents and the Veteran's in our community to come enjoy the program on Friday night.  It was well attended, and there were many tears shed as they paid tribute to those that have, and still do, fight for our country.  Many of our favorite patriotic songs were sung, along with a few new favorites.  The second and sixth grade teachers would like to thank the support from the parents, and the community.  Goshen School would like to thank all of those that have served in the military, for protecting our freedoms...
