Message from the Head of School

Dear Goshen families, 

I wanted to take a moment to invite you all to join us for our third All School Gathering, which is coming up next Wednesday, March 13, at 10:30 a.m. Each year, we hold four of these special assemblies, held in the Meetinghouse "up the hill." It's always a treat to visit this special space, lovely in its simplicity and so unique to the Quaker faith.

As we always do at our All School Gatherings, we will celebrate an idea that is important to us as a Quaker school: global community. We'll discuss things that bind us together -   like animals, feelings, and the importance of family - and how our community can be small (like at school) and big (like the world). The Owls and Bears will perform a special song. We hope you all can join us!

In friendship,
Tr. Mimi
