Goshen Elementary likes to celebrate Thanksgiving each year by having a turkey strut competition.  Students in each class are chosen to go against other students in the school showing their best turkey gobble, strut, or a combination of both.  This year two students won turkeys for having the best overall turkey performance.  A few teachers were lucky enough to give it a try this year and fifth-grade teacher, Mr. Nate Holt won a turkey for his performance!

Fourth graders at Goshen Elementary recently attended a performance put on by the Utah Symphony at Salem Hills High.  The students were excited when they heard a few familiar songs played by the symphony.  They were able to see what instruments were used to put together the songs.  Students even got up and marched in place to one of the marches played by the performers.  Thanks to the Utah Symphony for performing for students in Nebo District.

Students at Goshen Elementary collected food for the local food bank.  Students were glad to share what they had at home to help others in need.  Charity Pieper said, "The food drive is a very good activity, especially around Thanksgiving so we can be thankful.  I am glad we have this program and can help people in need."  Each classroom collected food for a week and the student council came around to each room and gathered all the food to distribute to families in the area.  Thanks to all those who donated items for the food drive!
