This Week's Photo

Tr. Joyce's class recently enjoyed their annual trip to Tyler Arboretum. Looks like spring has finally sprung! See more photos from their visit on our Facebook page by clicking here


Thank you to the GPC organizers and all who participated in the Panera Bread fundraiser!

As our school transitions, many are feeling the impact of that change -- students, teachers, families, alumni. The gratitude of all for what Goshen has added to their life experience has been overwhelmingly expressed. Reflection and moments of gratitude are part of Quaker process and are what continue to keep our community together.

I think we may have found the weather "hook & loop" closure for SPRING! It really might stick. Buds, blossoms, and even a bird's nest developing on my door wreath have convinced me ... Enjoy!
