Interact Club collected 3,000 food items for local Food Pantry

The Interact Club collected close to 3,000 food items for the Youth Ending Hunger Club and the Goshen Food Pantry during their Spring Food Drive Challenge. The members of the Goshen High School Interact Club recently collected approximately 3,000 non-perishable food during the club’s Spring Food Drive Challenge. The school-wide collection tasked students with collecting as many non-perishable foods as possible. The competition was fierce, with a first prize pizza party at stake. Several determined classes battled for the top spot, but Carmina Villegas’ fourth period social studies class was victorious and won the coveted pizza party. Second place went to Eric Harris’ fifth period English class, who received a tray of cookies for their effort. Science Teacher Patricia Gaer, a top contender from last year’s drive, finished close behind with her first period class in third place. The Interact Club members delivered the food donations to the Goshen Intermediate School Food Pantry for distribution by the Youth Ending Hunger Club.
Gabby Joseph and Jennifer Zhao get boxes ready for delivery.
Interact Club members Stephanie Dahowski, Chris Fini and Mary Quinn unpack food at the Goshen Food Pantry.

Annual Gift of Words to our 3rd Graders (Rotary Dictionary Project)

February 13, 2019....All the Third grade students at The Goshen Intermediate School received their very own Webster's Dictionary for Students, donated by the members of the The Rotary Club of Goshen, NY. 
Pictured here are Suzie Peacock, Allen Zick, Mark Garguilo, Cliff Kelsey, Rolly Peacock, BettyAnn VanLeeuen, Vince McCormack and Chris Ashman. Our Goshen Rotarians were escorted by Principal Matthew Wentworth as they visited each Third Grade classroom to give students their brand new dictionaries. (Bilingual Spanish-speaking students also received a Spanish-English version.)
Allen Zick presented the students with information about how to use the dictionary to find out the definitions, spelling and pronunciation of words in the English language. The dictionaries will help students with vocabulary development, spelling, and increasing their word knowledge. Students also learned a bit of history about Noah Webster, who was a teacher in Goshen in the 1800s who created the Webster's Dictionary as a resource for his students.
