Ms. Adams is the 2022-2023 recipient of the Crystal Apple Award for Goshen School. The Crystal Apple Award is given every year to a teacher that shows dedication and commitment to their students and the community, and is voted on by fellow teachers in our school. Ms. Adams made the big leap to Kindergarten this year and has done a FANTASTIC job! Kindergarten is not always the grade that teachers flock to, but she jumped at the chance this year to fill a vacancy and has shown her patience, her knowledge and her skills when working with the youngest of our students.

Our students were asked by Goshen City to make ornaments to decorate the Christmas Trees at the city park for the annual Christmas Tree Lighting. Each grade decorated their ornaments in a similar way, and then on Thursday, walked over to the park to place them on the trees that each grade was assigned. They will be on display for the entire Christmas season, and everyone is invited to come walk through the display and look at the fun ornaments everyone made.
