Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members,

Children from Goshen Center School, James Morris School, and Warren School gathered together at JMS last Friday for a day of culture and collaboration. Thanks to the generosity of the Parent Teacher Organizations at all three schools, students and staff were treated to an African Drumming program, led by master drummer, dancer, and choreographer Aly Tatchol Camara. Volunteers were able to dress in African garb, play the drums, and dance along to the African beat.

Afterward, each grade level had the opportunity to meet each other, and to participate in an activity prepared by their teachers from all three schools. Students also enjoyed lunch and recess together. Everyone appreciated this opportunity to interact with friends from the other schools. Thank you to Mr. KC Chapman and the JMS staff for hosting our first Cultural Collaboration. Stay tuned for similar events that we are planning for the future!

Cultivating Culture in RSD6

Grades 5 & 6 Instrumental Concert

I had the privilege of attending an AMAZING concert last evening at Wamogo Regional High School. Grade 5 & 6-grade students from Goshen, Morris, and Warren put on a spectacular performance. Thank you to Kara Cook, our instrumental music teacher who led the band to create an evening of great music. Well done!

Literacy Is For Everyone - L.I.F.E.

L.I.F.E nights are a great opportunity for our Region 6 families to come together across the district to meet and enjoy a story with new friends. Students and their families in preschool through grade 2 are welcome to attend any or all of the events across the district. We hope to you see you there! Mark your calendars. The dates are listed in the flyer below.
