L.I.F.E. event for RSD6 at Warren- Reading in PJs is fun!

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. Last night, Region 6 parents, children, and staff enjoyed reading together in the Warren School library. Future events will be held at James Morris School on April 14th, and here at Goshen Center School on May 19th.

Rare Disease Day Informational Meeting

Message from Mrs. Fasciano:

Rare Disease Day is celebrated every year on the last day of February. It is a day to recognize and raise awareness for others living with a rare disease. My son Evan, a kindergartner was born with Harlequin Ichthyosis, a rare skin disorder that affects less than 20 people in our country. This year I was given the opportunity to teach kindergarten Goshen Center students about Ichthyosis. Come show your support for those who live with rare diseases and learn more about this life-long disorder.

Message from Wamogo:


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.
