From the Head of School
Dear Goshen families,
Sunday was a beautiful day for a Hayride! Thanks to all who came out for a trek around Wynnorr Farm, followed by hot dogs and s'mores around the campfires. The school gets 100 percent of the proceeds from your visit. We thank you for your support - the event raised an incredible $800!
Many thanks to the school's General Committee for arranging this annual event. Special thanks to GC member Joe Stratton for hosting on his beautiful family farm, and to GC members Irene Crichton, Tom McGee, Wade Robinson, and Sallie Welte for setting up a buffet of hot dogs, apples, beverages, and - very important - s'mores fixins'. Thanks also to Jack Armstrong for lending his photographer talents.
If you didn't make it to this year's Hayride, we hope you'll join us next year!
I am very excited to announce that Goshen is developing a community service calendar of school-organized drives and events to benefit neighbors in need. T
eaching children the importance of service is an important part of our mission and an expression of the Quaker values of community and stewardship. We welcome your participation!
Thank you to Kaelyn Barr, mom to Liam Taylor in Tr. Delee's class, for her vision and coordination of this very important initiative!
Our first drive will be a collection of smoke detectors for the Goshen Fire Company, who will distribute them to families in need affected by fire. More information will follow on the drive, which goes in tandem with the children's lessons on fire safety for National Fire Prevention Week.
Be on the lookout for a calendar of more service opportunities throughout the year.
Some of the organizations we will partner with include the Chester County Food Bank, the SPCA, and the Devereux community in West Chester.
We hope you will join us for events that speak to your interests and fit your schedule.
Have a great week!
