We had lots of wonderful entries this year! We have some great talent in our school!  The grade level winners received art supplies, while the Grand Prize winner's art work will hang in the halls of the District Office for the next year.

The 5th Grade Annual Parade of State was presented to parents and students this week, and it was a huge success. The students spent January researching a state that they picked and creating a shoe box parade float representing their state. The kids always learn so many fun things about their state and do such a great job on their projects!

The kids (and teachers) at Goshen School were able to attend a fun and exciting magic show put on by the STEM Action Center, where our magician taught us all about what STEM is (STEM is an acronym that stands for Science Technology Engineering and Math) and demonstrated it through some really interesting (and funny) magic tricks, including disappearing rabbits, shrinking heads,  traveling PB & J, tables made from kids and magic numbers. Some of our students were able to be his assistant throughout the magic show, and afterwards, the kids couldn't stop talking about it.

This year Mrs. Barber, Ms. Bennett and their 3rd graders, along with Mrs. Openshaw's 5th graders celebrated Lunar New Year, also known as Chinese New Year. This year we are celebrating the Year of the Rabbit. We celebrated by learning about many of the traditions, saying a few phrases in Cantonese, and by enjoying (or not-so-enjoying) a few Asian treats. We ended the celebration with every student receiving a red pocket and gifts from their teachers. Happy Lunar New Year!
