On Wednesday January 17th the Hogle Zoo came to Goshen School's 2nd grade to teach us about habitats. Students had the opportunity to observe and sort items from two habitats in Utah (desert and wetlands). The zoo also introduced animals from each habitat. It was an experience to remember.
The new student council was introduced at Monday's Kindness Week Kickoff Assembly on Monday. They are so excited to be involved in school activities for the second half of the year. We would like to give a HUGE THANK YOU to the outgoing members of the student council and let them know that we appreciate their help during the first semester. They were great!
On Monday morning, the students attended a kickoff assembly about our Kindness Challenge happening this week. All students were given instructions about the Kindness Challenge, where K-2 students were encouraged to do 25 kind acts this week and the 3-6 students were encouraged to do 50. We have lots of fun activities planned this week! It's going to be a fun one!
We are so excited to participate in the Great Kindness Challenge this year! The challenge runs all week, next week (1/22-1/26), and our students are going to have the opportunity to do random acts of kindness throughout the entire week. We have such a great school, and great students, we are looking forward to seeing them do some great things for those around them.
This Monday (January 22nd) will be our 4th Grade Parents and Pastries activity. If you have a 4th grader, please bring a favorite book to read and meet at 1:45 here at the school. You will be able to read your book to a group of students and enjoy a donut with them.
On Thursday, January 18, Mrs. Norton's 4th Grade participated in a 'Mystery Skype' with another fourth grade class in the Salt Lake School District, in our library. Each class picked a book they were familiar with and then made a list of 'yes' or 'no' questions they could ask the other class about the book they had chosen. Mrs. Staheli and Mrs. Lewis (the other school's librarian) kept things on track as the classes took turns asking and answering questions over FaceTime, and by the end of library, the other class guessed that the book Mrs. Norton's class had chosen was "Charlotte's Web". It took a couple of good hints on their part, but we finally guessed that the book they had picked was "The Chocolate Touch". It was a great activity that all the fourth graders had fun with!
