Mrs. Jensen's 2nd Grade class has been taking care of a caterpillar that was brought in by one of her students.  They kept the caterpillar in the class and fed it, then they watched it change to a chrysalis, and during lunch today it hatched into a beautiful butterfly.  After lunch the class took it outside together, and placed it on a tree to watch for it to fly away.  Thanks Mrs. Jensen for helping your class experience this fun cycle together!!

Meet Our Mascot...

Goshen Elementary News - Thu, 09/07/2017 - 10:45am

(more pictures available)

We would like to officially introduce our Mascot, Spirit the Falcon, to our school!  We had a contest to name him, and the school picked the name Spirit, which is the perfect name for our school mascot!  

We are going to be using Spirit in a weekly Website/Facebook contest we are calling "Where is Spirit Wednesday".  Every Wednesday, we will post a picture of Spirit somewhere in our school.  Students will have until Friday morning, before school, to figure out where he is and fill out the form in the office and turn it in. (Please note...he is not actually hiding in that spot.  He just had a picture taken there.)  On Friday Morning just before announcements, Mrs. DeGraffenried will pick a name from the bucket and she will pick a winner from the correct guesses to win some fun prizes!  Spirit could be hiding ANYWHERE around our school in these pictures, so pay attention, and GOOD LUCK!!!  (The contest will start NEXT Wednesday!)

THANK YOU Mt. Loafer families! Because of your generosity we were able to exceed our goal and raise $1,567.13 to send to a sister school in Texas to buy supplies and materials they need to get their school back on their feet. 

We are so proud of our Grizzly Sloth and the example they are to others! It truly is great to be a grizzly!

Sage Creek Dragons had a fantastic time exploring the Discovery Gateway museum. Students were able to write their names in Chinese, cut out different Chinese art, make dragons, play music, dance, and that was only in the Chinese exhibit. They also were able to see a live behive in action, and a rescue helicopter. Thank you to our parents who came with us. And a huge shout out to the staff at Discovery Gateway museum for making this opportunity possible.

After learning about Vincent Van Gogh and his style of painting, two of his most famous paintings, Starry Starry Night and Sunflowers, were their choices to draw and paint. 

Students were not allowed to use the watercolors straight out of the watercolor tray but were to be mixed and blended for a more realistic look. Great job!

Sixth Grade Orchestra Program

Objective: To teach each member of the class the beginning essential techniques necessary to play their respective stringed instruments well. Daily practice will assist each student to succeed. For beginning string players, 20-30 minutes 5-6 days per week is recommended.

Instrument: Violins, violas, cellos and String Basses can be rented through Summerhays Music (Orem) (801) 226-1760, Bert Murdock Music (Orem) (801) 225-7922, Mountain Rock Music (Springville) (801)489-3000, Bill Harris Music (Provo) (801) 374-1440, Charles Liu (Midvale) (801) 255-9636  or Boothe Brothers Music (Spanish Fork) (801)798-7650. Currently the district is very low on inventory so unless you’ve already talked to me about rentals, you will need to look elsewhere.

Keep your eye on KSL.com Online Classifieds or Craigslist as well. There are dozens of instruments being sold all the time, sometimes for the same price or less than a school rental. I am always on the lookout for good deals and can help you find them.

Parent/Student Meeting: A parent/student meeting will take place at 8:30 am on Friday, September 15, 2017. At least one parent should attend.
