Grandparents Day


Tomorrow marks Goshen's Grandparent's Day!  We are so excited to have Grandparents come and see our school!  The students will have the opportunity to listen to their grandparents read to them.  The activity starts at 9:30 and will go until 10:00 (PM Kindergarten's grandparents will come from 2:45-3:10)  The PTA will be providing a treat at the end of the activity.

First Week of School Festivities

The Falcons at Goshen Elementary had a GREAT first week, last week!  Among the festivites were the Annual Flag Raising ceremony done by Mrs. DeGraffenried and Mrs. Openshaw's 6th grade class.  The students had fun getting to know their new teachers, and we had a hot dog roast during Back to School Night.  We, at Goshen School, are SO excited and are looking forward to a GREAT year!

Back to School Night


Please come to Back to School Night, Thursday August 22nd, at 6:00 pm.  We will meet in the lunchroom for a few minutes, and then students and parents will be allowed to visit their teachers' classrooms for a little bit more detailed look at the school year.  Please join us for a Hot Dog BBQ afterwards on the East field behind the school.
