The fifth graders at Goshen Elementary have been working hard for about three weeks on state projects. Students researched one of the fifty states to find out everything there is to know about that state. The students put together all their information on a poster showing graphs, pictures, statistics, brochures, and state symbols. The school had a Parade of States where all the students in the school were invited to come and find out everything the fifth graders learned. Students were excited to learn about the famous people and cool things each state has. Thanks fifth graders for teac
Recently, Goshen Elementary found out that Principal Jim Welburn will be transferring to Salem Elementary next year. Goshen wants to thank their principal for all his hard work and dedication over his four years of service.
His dedication to students and their well-being is seen in his professional attitude and attention to detail. Each of his decisions is made for the benefit of the students. His focus on fostering a productive environment while maintaining a relationship with students is reflected in the time he spent allowing students to get to know him.
Each year Goshen Elementary has an Education Fair where students can explore and learn more about concepts that interest them. They may participate in Language Arts, Science, Math or Social Studies activities. The students are required to make a visual, showing what they did for their project. They present their projects to judges and receive medals and collectors' coins. This is a great event. One that Goshen looks forward to each year. The overall winners this year were Logan Allinson and Lilianna Allred who have been participating in the Education Fair each year.
Goshen Elementary's first graders in Mrs. Dyreng's class recently did a unit on standard measurement. Students enjoyed measuring ingredients for a batch of no bake cookies. From this activity students learned about measuring capacity. They used a variety of measuring tools throughout their unit of study.
Students in Mrs. Norton’s 4th grade had fun making their own crazy Dr. Seuss creatures. They worked hard in groups to create a character out of random objects and art supplies brought from home. Once their creature was complete, they gave it a creative name and wrote a short poem about it using zany words! The characters pictured from left to right are: The Skinkle Finkle Whinkle Deww, The One Eyed Spotted Vandooper Scooper, The Fattalicka Smicka Ticka, The Squishy Ishy Wshon Bug, The Picture Micture Ficture Taking Freek, and The Zookady Flukady Been!
