Message from the Head of School

Dear Goshen families,

We are looking forward to seeing you all for Parent-Teacher conferences next Tuesday and Wednesday. If you have not already signed up, please take a moment to do so using the sign-up genius we emailed last week. These conferences are helpful in understanding how your child is progressing at school and what their teachers are recommending for next year. 

On Monday, January 20th, we will celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day with a day of service at the Chester County Food Bank. We would love for you to join us. Click here for more details.

We have been talking about Dr. King's work at school. Last week at our All-School Gathering, we made a heart-shaped wreath of multi-colored hands. We used the project to jump-start a discussion on equality, service and compassion. We hope you will help us reinforce that message by helping out at the Food Bank next week!

Finally, thanks for your patience as we continue to investigate the problems with our phones and internet. Fortunately, we have a friend on the outside who was able to pull together our Goshen Weekly today!

Have a great week!

In Friendship,
Tr. Mimi

Goshen Parent Community
