2nd Grade Hold Egg Drop Contest

The 2nd Grade Egg Drop was Friday, September 29th.    This was a hands on science experience in gravity!  Students had to “package” their raw egg so that hopefully, it did not break.  At 1:45 Mr. Carter used a hoist to raise our eggs to 18 feet into the air where he dropped them for parents and students to watch.  Students then had to open up their packaging to see if their egg was still intact.   Students celebrated the experience with a victory cheer or a chicken dance. It was "egg"citing for all and we can't wait to do it again next year.

We had an awesome opportunity to have Miss Utah 2017, JessiKate Riley, come and visit our school on Tuesday.  She talked to us about bullying, and how to handle it if someone is bullying you.  Her catch phrase is "Shake it off, and take a step".  She also entertained us by playing her violin, whose name is Sam and is 115 years old.  He is from Austria.  One fun fact about her, is that our own LeighAnn Penrod was her 1st grade teacher!  Mrs. Penrod's class sure thought that was neat!  We want to thank Miss Riley for taking time out of her busy schedule to come visit Goshen.  She left a great message behind!

Meet Our Mascot...

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!)
