Message from the Head of School

Dear Goshen families, 

Spring is in the air! Our lovely campus is coming to life after a long winter. 

We love our outdoor space here at Goshen Friends. We hope you do, too! If you'd like to help us give it a good spring cleaning, please join us Saturday, April 27, from 9 a.m. to 12 noon for our 2nd Annual Community Clean-Up Day. We have lots of chores for those who are willing to help! We will be cleaning and mulching beds, planting flowers, planting potatoes in our Chester County Food Bank vegetable gardens, and doing other jobs here and there. Join us for the whole morning, or just for an hour or so. We appreciate the help! Light refreshments will be served. 

Flyers will come home by backpack Tuesday and Wednesday this week. You can also Please RSVP by filling out and sending in the bottom portion of the flyer. You can also RSVP by emailing me at  mimi.ackers@goshenfriends.org .

In friendship,
