Message from the Head of School

Dear Goshen friends and families, 

We are looking forward to seeing everyone here for the Halloween parades tomorrow and Wednesday. There is nothing cuter than kids in costumes! Since it's such a busy morning, thank you in advance for having your little ones here no later than 9 am on your parade day. We appreciate it.

Have a great week!

In Friendship,
Tr. Mimi

Halloween can take a lot out of you...parades, countless costumes, parties, trick-or-treating. Why not treat yourselves to a little post-Halloween R and R! Friday is Parents' Night Out, a special evening brought to you by the GPC and Extended Care! Drop your little ones here in Extended Care, then enjoy a night out with  your spouse, your friends, or, have a little quiet time for yourself! 

Pizza, fruit, veggies, and a snack (e.g. popcorn, chips, etc.) will be provided. Click here for more information and to download a form to register. Please note: Reservations must be received by October 30.

The next regular meeting of the GPC has been moved to Friday,  November 9 
at 9 am in the Grange. Free childcare in Extended Care is available to all parents who attend the meeting. Please contact Tr. Patrice Patrice Brown at 610-696-8937 or extendedcare@goshenfriends.org.

Thursday is the first day of our newest class, Art Appreciation & the Modern Masters!
