It is my pleasure to share this note from the school’s General Committee. This small but formidable group are champions of our school and true friends to the faculty and staff. Thank you, GC! – Tr. Mimi
Dear Goshen Friends Families,
I’d like to introduce you to Goshen Friends School’s General Committee, known in other organizations as the Board of Directors. I serve as Clerk or Chairperson. There are 10 of us: past parents, former teachers, friends of the School, Quakers and non-Quakers, who meet every other month with the Head of School and Business Officer.
Our responsibilities are four-fold:
- to have financial responsibility for the school.
- to hire and support our Head of School, the General Committee’s only employee. It is Tr. Mimi’s responsibility to hire all faculty and staff and run the day-to-day operation of the school.
- to ensure that the school lives its mission: “Guided by the Quaker values of equality, integrity, simplicity, community and peace, Goshen Friends School provides a strong academic foundation through a responsive curriculum and small classes to nurture joyful learning.”
- to plan for the future of the school.
Thank you for entrusting your children to the dedicated, caring teachers and staff at Goshen Friends.
With best wishes from the General Committee for a wonderful year,
Irene Crichton, Clerk
