The 6th graders at Goshen School enjoyed a graduation luncheon on Friday afternoon.  They were taught about good manners and etiquette and put those to use during the luncheon.  As their time here at Goshen winds down, and the prospect of Jr. High is on the horizon, we hope that the manners and etiquette they have learned is something that they use to show those in the "big city" that Goshen is a great place to be from!  Thank you to all of those that took time out of their schedules to make this luncheon possible!

Register for Orchestra

Orchestra Interest Form

Dear Students,

I am looking for students who love music and are looking for a fun challenge to join our 2016-2017 Brookside Orchestra. Our 6th grade orchestra meets every Monday and Wednesday and every other Friday before school from 7:50 until 8:45. The students learn the basics of their chosen instrument (violin, viola, cello or bass) and will play in three concerts throughout the year.

There are a limited number of violas and cellos for rent from the school but violins and basses must be provided by the student. There are several music stores in the area who rent instruments as well as options to buy. Summerhays in Orem and Boothe Brothers in Spanish Fork as well as a Rock Mountain Music in Springville next to Pier 49 Pizza are only a few. If you choose to buy online, however, I recommend you preview it with someone with some knowledge of the instrument before you buy. Some internet instruments aren’t very good and will just frustrate the student’s learning.

Costs: $75 tuition, $7 method book “Measures of success”

Optional: Shoulder rest for violins and viola, $100 school instrument rental fee for the year

If you think you might be interested in participating next year, please fill out the form below and return it to your teacher.

Hope to see you next year!


Dana Keller

(Please return this form to your teacher by Monday May 23rd. After May 23rd you can have your parents email the information below to Dana.keller@nebo.edu This is not a commitment, just to see who is interested. We will do formal recruiting in August and begin practices in September.)



Instruments: Violin, Viola, Cello and Bass

Barnett Elementary's 5th Graders put on a wax museum of people that have influenced American History. Students researched a person of their choice, discovered how they have impacted US History, and then wrote a report on the research they found. They designed their costumes and came up with memorized statements to share with museum visitors. All of their hard work really paid off today when they got to share all they had done with parents, families, teachers, and the rest of the school! They did an amazing job and we all agree that "It's great to be a 5th Grader!"
