The Scholastic Book Fair on the Goshen Campus runs through Tuesday, November 21st (Grandparents’ Day)!

This year, the library is raising funds to build a vertical library in its courtyard!

Volunteers are needed to help work the Book Fair. Before school and after school are the busiest times.

SFS parent Shannon Stocker has just had a story published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Dreams and the Unexplainable. Titled “Marcela’s Vision, this story tells of the premonitions had by Marcela, a woman that became close to Shannon’s family while Shannon was in a coma undergoing an experimental treatment for a disease she’d been fighting for seven years. Come out and support Shannon during her book signing at the Paddock Barnes & Noble on Saturday, December 2nd at noon.

Don’t miss the opportunity to reserve your copy of the 2017-18 yearbook! We are able to offer a reduced price of $50 until March 1st; after that, the price will be $57. Similar to last year, the yearbook will come out BEFORE the end of the school year so that students can sign copies and have them for the summer break. We will mail a spring supplement full of great photos from end of the year activities, graduations, etc. to each person who purchases a yearbook. The spring supplement comes with an adhesive strip to insert into the yearbook. Also, all yearbook ordering and purchasing is done through our yearbook company, Herff Jones, so you will receive emails directly from them.​
