  • Once again, the Lost and Found at Goshen is overflowing. All items in the bin will be laid out in the Main Amp area beginning after lunch on Tuesday, February 9th, and will remain out until after school on Wednesday, February 10th. Students will have the opportunity to look through the items during those days, but parents are strongly encouraged to come look as well.  Due to drama performances and a school assembly, we will not be able to lay them out any earlier or later than these times/days. Any items not claimed by Wednesday afternoon will be donated to a local charity.
  • The Goshen Campus will offer Winter Break Camp during our upcoming Winter Break. Please click here for more information. Or you can contact Erika Schneider, director of after-school and summer programs.
