This year's arts festival was a huge success! There were so many great pieces of art created, that the judges had a hard time picking winners. A huge thanks goes out to our PTA for helping with the festival, along with the students for creating their art and for the parents that supported their childrens' artistic talents. Each of the winners for every grade won some great prizes including lots of fun art supplies. The Grand Prize Winner will have their art featured at the District Office for the coming year. Congrats to all of our winners!
A huge congratulations goes out to Mrs. Cami Barber for being picked as this year's Teacher of the Year. Mrs. Barber started off her teaching career here at Goshen Elementary as a student teacher for Mrs. Norton. She was hired the next year and has been teaching 3rd grade for 9 years. She is a dedicated teacher and cares for each one of her students. She has a knack for seeing each of their potential, no matter who they are, and encouraging her students to reach that potential. She is passionate for teaching and it shows. Some of her fellow teachers said about her:
It is time again for our Art Festival. Our theme is "What Makes Me Happy". We will be accepting entries up until the end of the day, February 9th. Students can only enter one time. All of the art must be no thicker than a standard painting canvas. We will be accepting any artwork created by the student. Be sure to read the rules on the entry form, which can be picked up in the office. Remember to write your name on the back of your artwork so the judging is anonymous.
This year, the recipient of the Crystal Apple Award was awarded to Mrs. Abby Haines, 5th grade teacher here at Goshen Elementary. The Crystal Apple is awarded every year to an outstanding teacher in our school. Mrs. Haines was nominated and voted for by her fellow teachers for the wonderful things she does for our school and in her classroom. Congratulations, Mrs. Haines! You definitely deserve this award!
