Goessel students collect and donate coins

Goessel 5th grade teacher Emily Gibson with her class. The Goessel Elementary 5th graders celebrate their 1,000 days of school since kindergarten on Feb. 1st.

One of the activities was collecting 1000 coins. Students collected over $160! After a class vote of which community organization they would like to donate to, the kids chose Bethesda Home in Goessel to donate the money,” said Gibson.

Student Aubrielle Francis said, “It was really fun to do. We got to hang out with the residents for the first time and tell them about our school year. Because of COVID-19, we have not been able to meet in person for Generation Bridge which we normally would do in 5th grade. So that was really cool.”
