Mr. Atkin is Showered With Kindness

Submitted by krista.openshaw on

Next week we will be kicking off kindness week, and Mrs. Despain and Mrs. Brockback left me a nice, little, but kind surprise in my office. I had meetings in Payson and when I returned I found my office decorated with lovely flowers and cute little stuffed animals. They also organized my closet and cleaned my room. Even though my office now looks like it belongs to a teenage girl it is very clean and organized.  I DO love the little jokes and fun things that make Goshen School a home and a family. I have the best school in the district. Thanks Mrs. Despain and Mrs.

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!

Mrs. Norton's Class Writes about Special Gifts

Submitted by krista.openshaw on

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.
