Message from the Head of School

Dear Goshen families,

There are many times in a school year when I am reminded of just how grateful I am to be a member of this community. Friday night's Valentine Dance was one of those times. It was such a joy to see so many dancing the night away. What a fun evening! 

Thank you, to all the many families who donated food and beverages, to all those who worked tirelessly to decorate the hall, to all the students for their beautiful heart works of art and to all those who stayed after to help clean up. Special thanks to the GPC for planning and organizing this wonderful affair, quickly becoming a favorite event of every school year!

Please note that we are closed Friday, February 14 and Monday, February 17 for the Presidents Day long weekend. Enjoy the time off with you family!

Have a great week!

In Friendship,
Tr. Mimi
