Our Goshen Kindergarten classes had a great time on October 11th on their field trip to Jaker's Pumpkin Patch. Students enjoyed their first field trip and for many their first bus ride. Students had a great time at the haunted cave, corn pit, petting zoo, hay ride, and the giant slides. We played hard and walked away with corn hiding everywhere! It was a day to remember for all!
Last week was the last week of Hispanic Heritage Month, and the PTA provided a DELICIOUS lunch for the teachers! We were treated to Mole, Tres Leches cake, Chips and Pico de Gallo, Tacos, Bean dip, Home made refried beans (two varieties), Salsa, Sopa fria, Birria, Amarillito, Salsa and chips, Red Rice, and wonderful Hispanic candy. We know how much time it takes to volunteer to provide food, help in our classes and donate your time, and the teachers and staff would like all of our parents know that it is truly appreciated!
We had another successful Health and Safety Fair last week. The kids love being able to interact with all of the things that the Sheriff's office brings, and it is a highlight of the year. They always go the extra mile by staying after school and allowing families to come learn about the things that the different departments and companies have to offer also. We want to thank the Utah County Sheriff's Office, along with Deputy Dutson for always putting together a great activity!
Our wonderful PTA is doing a fundraiser in November to earn some money for our school and could use some donations. They will be hosting a movie night on November 13th (movie to still be determined). At the movie, they will be selling drinks, nachos and popcorn, along with bags of apples from our local orchards. Mr. Atkin will also be doing face painting again. There will also be a silent auction for baskets put together by each grade. This is where your donations come in. Each grade has picked a basket theme that they need filled.
4th graders became royalty yesterday as they embarked on their journey into the Middle Ages. For the next few weeks they will be studying the medieval times through reading, writing and various activities. To kick it off, students found castle murals in their rooms and had fun personalizing crowns to wear during their Middle Ages lessons each day. They may also be seen silently riding their imaginary horses through the halls from time to time.
