Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members,

This past Friday, our preK-6 students and staff were joined by all of the students and staff from Warren School and James Morris School at Goshen Center School to enjoy an assembly on Spanish culture.

The event featured performances by students from across the three schools and was led by our elementary Spanish teachers, Senor and Senora Ruiz. Following the assembly, students and staff divided into groups by grade level and conducted learning activities designed to educate our students on cultural awareness.

The day was a great success. All of us at GCS were very proud to host our district peers for this very special event.

Thank you,

Tracy Keilty

GCS Principal

Author Visit

Local author, Christine Ieronimo of "A Thirst For Home" shared her story, about Ethiopia, how they gather and transport water, and how we can make a change! She visited Goshen Center School and students learned all about World Water Day.

Thank you, Tara Gleason for finding this amazing author to our school for all to learn the benefits of clean water.
