Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members,

It is hard to believe we will be 100 days into the school year next week! I can't believe how quickly the school year is going. Our amazing students here at Goshen Center School have been learning and developing many new skills and concepts throughout the year and we are all so appreciative of their energy and the positive support our school community provides. Each day I make a point to tour the school and I am routinely amazed at the effort of our dedicated faculty and staff and the many wonderful things they are accomplishing with our students. Our teachers have high expectations for themselves and our students to ensure the students provide a high level of effort to reach their full potential.

Comic Strip Design

An after school 5-week Comic Strip Design program is underway with Mrs. Farrell, our Library Media paraprofessional and MakerSpace facilitator. Students are learning how to create their very own comic strip. Some of our Wamogo National Art Honor Society students are volunteering with this weekly event.

Stay tuned for more after school activities being offered this year with Mrs. Farrell.

See pictures below.

A quick reminder from the GCS School Nurse

Flu and cold season is upon us. Please remind your children the importance of hand washing and covering their mouths when coughing. A quick reminder that medications may not be transported by students and must be accompanied by a Medication Authorization form filled out by both Physician and Parent in order for administration at school. This includes all over the counter medications. When trying to determine whether or not your child should remain home or come to school, check for a temperature, excessive coughing, or nausea or if you feel the need to administer medication (i.e. Tylenol, Advil, Ibuprofen, etc…) then your child should remain home.
