Goshen Elementary was invited to this month's the Nebo School District School Board meeting. To open up the meeting, 5th grader, Jovi Judd let the group in the Pledge of Allegiance. Mr. Atkin then told the board about some of the awesome things that our school and students have been doing, including our students outperforming 109 more schools in 2022 than we did in 2021 and that Goshen is the 13th most improved school in the state of Utah this year according to the Rise test.
Goshen's 3rd grade teamed up with Payson High School's English class to read 600 minutes in November! Over 90% of the third graders achieved the goal. To celebrate, the high schoolers planned and carried out a celebration, including a cereal bar and prizes. Thank you to Payson High and PBS Kids Utah for the challenge, encouragement, and celebration. And a big thank you to the parents for supporting the 3rd graders in this big goal!
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.
