We’re All Kids at Heart

By Suzanne Gorman, Head of Downtown Campus

4th-and-9th-soccer-gameI hope everyone had a good Fall Break! We headed off to it in fine style, enjoying a Two-Campus Field Day where we traveled to the Goshen Campus, joined up with groups of Lower and Middle Schoolers, had a cookout, and played games. I loved seeing the little ones climb all over (literally) our High School students and enjoy the time with them. Our 9th grade and 4th grade penpals got to meet one another and enjoy lunch, some impromptu soccer time, and an art project. We also appreciated the invitation to stay for the St. Francis Day Pet Blessing, if students could get rides home from the Goshen Campus – a number of High Schoolers had pets come for the blessing and enjoyed seeing the festivities.  

This week, we had our first group of Goshen Campus 8th grade shadows and our second group of non-Goshen prospective student visitors, our third of four Community Service days this semester, a trip for some science students to the Pulse of Surgery program at the Science Center, a fabulous Senior Night for our field hockey team (with a big win), an incredible overtime penalty-kicks win in the district tournament semifinal for our soccer team, the final meeting of first-quarter Projects, and the last day of the first quarter itself! Grades and comments will be out next Friday, October 21st, given to students in Advisee Groups and then uploaded to the Parent Portal later in the day (and we will email you to let you know the reports are there).

In this newsletter are links to our Parent-Teacher Conference signups which you also saw in an email earlier today. You are welcome to meet with any or all of your child’s teachers.

A reminder that we dismiss at noon next Wednesday, October 19th.  

Have a wonderful weekend!
