100 Days!

The Butterflies celebrated a milestone today: we've been in school for 100 days! We counted 100 balloons strewn about the classroom, hunted for 100 toy ants and Hershey's kisses, played numbers guessing games and enjoyed cookies in the shape of - you guessed it - the number 100! And of course, to top it all off, we all dressed up as centenarians! Don't we look old?

Message from the Head of School

Dear Goshen families,

Just a quick note from me to wish everyone well as we head into March. All you snow lovers out there might be feeling a little disappointed, with spring just around the corner and no winter weather in sight. Look on the bright side: our campus will be bursting with color and lush green lawns in no time! 

Have a great week!

In Friendship,
Tr. Mimi
Goshen Parent Community
