School Notes for Week of October 12th-16th

  • Parent-Teacher Conferences are next Thursday, October 22nd and Friday, October 23rd. School will be closed for the Goshen Campus both days and for the Downtown Campus on Friday only. Please sign up here ASAP as the sign-ups will be “locked” early next week to finalize sign-ups and allow the teachers time to prepare. For those parents needing childcare on the Goshen Campus during conferences, please click here to sign up.
  • The National Youth Arts award-winning St. Francis Drama Project’s Fall production will be the quintessentially witty comedy The Importance of Being Earnest! This classic English comedy of manners and societal foibles by Oscar Wilde will be performed October 23rd (6:30 p.m.), 25th (2:00 p.m.), 27th & 28th (6:30 p.m.). Tickets will be available at the door. We look forward to seeing you there!
  • Picture Days are coming up for the High School!  9th through 11th graders have pictures on Tuesday, October 20th.  12th graders are signing up for mini-sessions (via Danielle at the front desk).  
  • Over the weekend, seven 8th graders (Eli Jaffe, Drew Perkins, Amelia Dimas, Eston McLeroy, Lorenzo QuickRecall_2Mahoney, Holly Yelton, and Connor Gorman) participated in a Quick Recall tournament hosted at Trinity High School. The SFS Wyverns won three of their five matches, barely losing in the fourth match. This is a very competent team and they are excited to compete again. Next they will have a few scrimmages with local schools before taking on the Governor’s Cup Tournament in January. Go Wyverns!
  • LOST AND (hopefully) FOUND at Goshen! The Lost and Found bin has already started to overflow and there are many, many coats, shirts, socks, and shoes missing their owners.  All of the items will be laid out in the Main Amp next Thursday and Friday during Parent-Teacher Conferences.  Please take a look while you’re here and help these things make it back home.  All remaining items will be donated to a local charity.  (And remember, you can always look through the Lost and Found at any time during the school year.) Thanks and happy searching!
  • Congratulations to sophomore Natalie McClain on her nomination to the Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership program and sophomores Aakriti Bista, Shelly Lancaster, and Olivia Bajandas on their nominations to the Louisville Girls Leadership program.  
  • Wyvern Ski and Snowboard Club is gearing up for its third year!  The Goshen Club is open to students in 6th – 8th grades and the High School Club is open to students in 9th – 12th grades.  Parents in those grades have received information via email.  If you have any questions, please contact parent coordinators Suzanne Gorman for the Goshen Ski Club and Stephen McCrocklin for the High School Ski Club. 
  • High school students Sam Edwards-Kuhn, Natalie McClain, and Christina Saliga have been selected as Educational Justice Activists.  The Educational Justice Activists program provides an opportunity for high-performing high school students to channel their academic expertise toward eliminating educational inequality by committing to regularly provide one-on-one tutoring and academic mentoring to younger peers who are struggling in school.
