Mrs. Norton received the Crystal Apple Award this year. This special award is given to an outstanding teacher, and is voted on by the faculty of our school. Mrs. Norton received this award because of her kindness and her willingness to help those around her, whether it's another teacher that needs help, or the students who are entrusted into her care. She has a way of creating special connections with her students, and it is very evident. She definitely deserves this recognition, and we are all so glad she is a teacher at our school. Congratulations Mrs. Norton!
After break Mrs. Norton's class talked about personal goals, resolutions and things they could do to help others. Then they took the idea of helping others and turned it into a form of poetry by writing “If I Were A Gift”. Students choose a gift they would like to give and in the first stanza they define their gift. In the second stanza they say how their gift could help someone close to them and in the last stanza they say how their gift could help the world.

A scientist from Discovery Gateway came and visited with our 5th graders last week. She presented their "Reaction Time" program to them, and taught them about chemistry. The students were able to perform their own experiments in some hands on activities. It was a great review of their science unit on Matter from the first of the year. We would like to thank Discovery Gateway for coming all the way to Goshen to present to our students!
