The Goshen Weekly, December 10, 2018

Last Friday we gathered in the Grange for our December Service Project on behalf of Devereux's Kanner Learning Center. Children created glittery ornaments to decorate a tree that will be donated to the residents of Devereux. Thank you to all of the students, siblings, alumni, parents, grandparents, friends, and faculty who joined us to help make the season bright! To see more photos from our Service Project  gathering ,

Message from the Head of School

Dear Goshen families, 

We are looking forward to seeing you at our holiday concerts Wednesday and Thursday! The children have been rehearsing with enthusiasm and are ready to perform! Concerts begin promptly at 11 am in the Grange, followed by refreshments in the Preschool building. See you then!

Tomorrow we are very excited to welcome former parent and friend of the school, Justin Shipley. Justin and his assistant will be filming the goings-on here at Goshen and will use the footage to create short promotional videos for our social media and new website. Justin, whose three children attended Goshen and are now at Westtown, is a talented filmmaker who created a lovely piece about Goshen in 2011. You can see the video

Justin is great with kids (and adults!) and will make all efforts to ensure everyone is at ease as he films. The kids will probably find it all rather exciting! The footage will remain sole property of the school, and the final products will feature only children whose parents have granted us permission to photograph. If you have questions, please feel free to contact me. 

Wishing everyone a safe, happy holiday season. Enjoy your time with family and friends! See you next year!

In Friendship,
Tr. Mimi
