Young Authors Program

Edwardsville School District will again participate in the Illinois Young Authors Program. All students are encouraged to participate, and all participants will be recognized for their effort. Building representatives will be chosen to represent their own school at the Madison County Young Authors Conference on Saturday, April 18, 2015. One student will be selected as our representative for the Illinois State Young Authors' Conference in May.

Students may write opens or stories. Each individual must use his/her own language and illustrations. Parents may assist younger students by typing or writing their child's dictated stories.

Manuscripts must be completed and returned to your child's teacher by Thursday, January 8, 2015.

Learning Fair

The Learning Fair provides an opportunity for our students to research and display a topic that is of interest to them. The goal of this fair is for our students to further their knowledge through exploration. We encourage a more child-centered project, rather than a project that is parent-directed. There will be no judging, and ALL students will be recognized!

More information about the Learning Fair can be found at:

Goshen's Learning Fair will be held on Thursday, March 19, 2015 from 5:30-7:00 p.m.

Goshen GazetteGoshen Gazette - Second Quarter - Fall 2014

A big round of applause to all of our first quarter Golden Gator award winners! The children love to hear about why their friends have been selected to receive this coveted award each week. The teachers and I are always looking for students who follow the Goshen motto, "I'm a Goshen Gator, I will try my best every day to listen, learn, and share the Goshen Gator way!" Keep up the great work, Gators!

The Goshen staff wishes all children and their families a safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday. We are so thankful for the support you provide each and every day! [More Info]
