Message from the Head of School

Dear Goshen families,

Just a quick note to let you know our Safe-in-School drill went off without a hitch this morning. Officer Ken Frascella of the Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department joined us for the drill and was pleased with how things went. We expect tomorrow's exercise to go smoothly as well. Thanks for your support of this important process.

School photos are coming home this week! If you do not receive pictures, it means the photographer did not have an order on file for you. However, she did take photos of every child, so you can still place an order or revise an order by emailing her directly  at maryparnell@picklepussphoto.com.


Have a wonderful week!

In Friendship,
Tr. Mimi
Goshen Parent Community
