During spring break the remodel on Goshen School will begin. Safety fences will be put up to protect students from the construction. The main doors will no longer be available to enter the school. After spring break students and patrons will enter the school through the doors by the first grade classrooms. The front office will be located in computer lab 1. There will be signs posted to show the way.

Two of Goshen's fifth graders, Cameron Barber and Hyatt Bagley, along with their Debate Coach, Mr. Hunt, attended and competed in the Nebo School District Debate Competition earlier this month. This is the first year that Goshen School has had a debate team, and the boys did a great job! A big thank you goes to Mr. Hunt for teaching them the basics of debate! We can't wait to see how they do next year!
Last week, representatives from WozU came to Goshen and introduced our 3rd graders to the world of coding. They were able to do some activities and learn about what coding is, and how to use it. The 3rd graders had a lot of fun with this activity!
