April will begin with preparation for International Week. Kindergarten will collaborate with 1st Grade to learn about Ireland. We will have fun exploring Irish food, facts, and traditions. Other grades will learn about Thailand and the Territory of Puerto Rico.
The focus will be to bring together a “Whole School” experience. Active learning and sharing as a community is an important part of the week and represents one of the many qualities that GFS brings to it’s students and their families.
International Week will end on April 27th with “One World Café.” We will get out our passports and enjoy the journey. Hope to see everyone there.
Following International Week kindergarten will get ready for the Clothesline Art Festival. Our title will be “Monet Our Way.” Each student will create his / her own art piece based on Monet’s impressionist style. Their work will be displayed and presented at 2:30pm on May 12th after Friend Day. Another special moment for students and families at Goshen Friends School.
IMPORTANT APRIL / MAY DATES: Apr 27 – One World Café at 5:30pm May 12 – Friend Day and art festival
In Peace, Teacher Kara
Opportunities to lead are abundant and Goshen students are encouraged to embrace these opportunities. Students who learn leadership skills early in their academic careers grow to be confident and compassionate leaders.
