Message from the Head of School

Dear Goshen families, 

I know it seems like it was ages ago, but I'm still thinking about the Valentine's Dance! Many thanks to all the students and families who decorated, donated food, and danced the night away! This is quickly becoming a favorite event on the Goshen calendar. I'm even wondering if it isn't time to invest in dance floor lights!

And in case you needed a reminder that it is still February ... there is a bit of winter weather in tomorrow's forecast! Knowing this, please be sure to check your email, the school website, and the school's Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook pages for updates on how the weather could affect tomorrow's schedule. We'll make a decision, based on the latest forecast, tonight or early tomorrow morning.

Have a great evening! Think spring!

In Friendship,
Tr. Mimi

Goshen Parent Community

Special thanks to Dana Kelly and Erin Robins for their extra efforts to make the night a success. Also thanks to Marne Repetto, Jacqui Martin, Ashlee House, Kristy Stevens, Tr. Patty, and Tr. Zach for setting up and breaking down the event.
