From the Head of School:

Dear Goshen families,
 
The weather this past week has been amazing. It’s spring and fall all rolled into one glorious season!
 
Unfortunately, we may be in for a turn with showers in the forecast tomorrow and Thursday. Please be prepared to use the alternate car line plans. Here are the maps:
A few reminders:
  • Be sure to check the sign in front of the Grange in the morning for a message confirming an alternate car line.
  • We may start the day outside, then switch to the alternate plan for afternoon pick-up. A change in the sign at pick-up time will let you know!
  • Dress your child for wet weather Wednesday and Thursday. We recommend layers we can peel off if we go inside, and sturdy waterproof or water-resistant shoes for outdoors.
 
In Friendship,
Tr. Mimi
Join us for Lunch Bunch!
 
Come join us after school to have lunch, play with friends AND get creative with Tr. Patrice!
 
Now through December, we are excited to announce that Patrice is firing up her workshop, just in time for the holidays! She and her friends will be making pretty fall crafts and holiday-themed treasures from 2 to 3 pm on designated days. Answer your child's pleas to stay for lunch, use the time to check a few items off your to-do list, and grow your collection of hand-made keepsakes. It's a win-win-win!
 
If you can only stay for lunch, that's OK too! Customize your child's afternoon so it works for you. Click on your class link below to make your reservation.
