At Goosehill a First Grade “Little Builders” Competition took place at the request of first grader, Kellan Jordan. He made a flyer which was distributed to spark interested builders. He outlined the rules for fellow students: “Use blocks, Legos or anything, No Directions, No Help!” The entry photos were sent to Kellan, and are on display in the hallway at school.

Thank you to the Goosehill PTG for organizing a virtual night-time story hour with author, Linda Ashman. Principal Herschlein shared, “It was such a nice event for the children! I love to see children excited to meet authors, hear their books read aloud, and learn about their writing process. When asked how one becomes an author, Ms. Ashman told the children to read, write, and read some more!
