The Scholastic Book Fair runs through November 22nd on the Goshen Campus! Volunteers needed. In the past, the fair has raised money for a graphic novel collection, a projector and screen for the library, and an e-book database. This year, the library is hoping to start a new audio/video collection, with a focus on books on CD.  

Volunteers are needed to help work the fair. Before school and after school are the busiest times. If you volunteer, you will either work at the register or restock books. If you would like to volunteer, please sign up using SignUpGeniusIf there is a shift you would like (especially an after-school shift and on Grandparents’ Day) that is filled, please email Lindsy SerranoThe more help, the better!

Join us for a parenting webinar on Wednesday, November 30th at 8:30 a.m. in the Goshen Campus Library. We are presenting “Girls’ Friendships & Drama: How to Support Your Daughter” with Tim Jordan. This webinar is intended for parents of girls 3rd grade and up, though all are welcome. For more information about the presenter, go to http://drtimjordan.com

Please RSVP to Natalie Bruner if you plan to attend. (RSVPs are not mandatory, but are appreciated, so that we know how many chairs to set up!)

It’s not too late to sign up to go to China on the St. Francis School Spring Break trip. We have received many deposits already, but enrollment is open until the due date for Chinese visa applications early next year. The trip is open to 7th through 12th graders and their parents or guardians.

The trip is March 30th – April 9th, and students will visit Beijing and Shanghai. It is an exciting program with visits to major sites such as the Great Wall, the Forbidden City and Tian’anmen Square, and the Temple of Heaven in Beijing, and the Bund Waterfront, Yuyuan Gardens, the Shanghai Museum, and a river cruise in Shanghai.

The cost of the trip is an incredibly low $2,645 per person, which covers airfare, China visa and supplemental medical insurance. The rest of the trip is entirely subsidized by the Confucius Institute at WKU.

Deposits and questions about the program can be sent to Chinese teacher Bob Jones

Don’t miss the opportunity to reserve your copy of the 2016-17 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 of you who purchase a yearbook. The spring supplement comes with an adhesive strip to insert into your yearbook. Also, all yearbook ordering and purchasing is done through our yearbook company, Herff Jones.​
