Last week the Butterflies headed to Highland Orchards! They enjoyed a  hayride, tried out apple picking, made a scarecrow, learned about how apple cider is made, and got to sample some yummy cider donuts. See more photos of their fun field trip

Message from the Head of School

Dear Goshen families,

We are looking forward to our Halloween parades Wednesday and Thursday (please see schedule above for details). This is a fun time of year and a great way for children to use their imaginations!

There is some rain predicted for Thursday morning, which could impact that day's event. We will keep our eye on the forecast and will move the festivities inside if necessary. I will send out an eblast Wednesday evening if the parade will be held in the Grange parking lot as planned, or inside the Grange building itself. Fingers crossed for good weather!

Just a quick note that our first All School Gathering of the year will be held next Wednesday, November 6 at 10:30 am in the Meetinghouse. The theme for the program is Thankfulness. Our own Butterflies will perform! All children and families are welcome to attend!

Have a wonderful week!

In Friendship,
Tr. Mimi
