Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members,


On Tuesday, we celebrated our 100th day of school here at Goshen Center School. During the day students participated in many “100th day” activities including our kindergarten students who brought in a collection of 100 items from home and one of our kindergarten students, Apollo, chose to donate 100 food items to our Student Council Food Drive! Great job Apollo for supporting this very important cause!

Northwest Read Aloud

Thank you to the volunteers who traveled to Goshen Center School on a very snowy morning to read to us. Every class was grateful for their time, and for the donation of all the beautiful books by The Chamber of Commerce.

Message from Wamogo:

INCREASING OPPORTUNITIES IN WORLD LANGUAGE


In order to advance world language studies in high school and to give our students a more rigorous language experience, we will be changing our current 7th grade exploratory format. Beginning in September 2016, seventh grade students will begin world language class upon entering Wamogo and will attend world language classes every other day for the entire year. They will continue to follow this pattern through the eighth grade, completing a whole year of foreign language before entering high school. Students will gain knowledge and experience in developmental guidance, study skills and the Agricultural Science Technology Education program on the days they are not in world language. This new format will create advanced opportunities for our students in world languages and other subject areas. Students currently in sixth grade will be asked to select their language during spring registration.


Students wishing to pursue Latin studies may continue to do so through online learning with Middlebury Interactive. Middlebury Interactive comes with an instructor that students can access for support. Just as with French and Spanish, students will be able to complete Latin I by the time they enter high school.

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.
