Stemming from our all-school theme of "Celebrating You and Me" during the 2009-2010 school year, International Week has traditionally been a time for the Goshen community to come together to honor and celebrate the diverse families we have here within our student body. In the words of an alumni, "We have International Week to learn about cultures other than ours, to have fun, and to understand the people, food, and traditions in other countries."
International Week 2017
The 2017 International Week will celebrate three cultures—Nepal, Switzerland, and Brazil—with guest speakers, activities, and culinary treats. Stay tuned for the full schedule of events!
One World Cafe
Come dine with us! As a culminating celebration of International Week we are having an evening festival to taste dishes from the three countries that are being highlighted during the 2017 International Week. There will be music, crafting booths, and delicious food from these three countries. As a special treat, Tr. Gabe's music classes have prepared performances that celebrate Switzerland, Nepal, and Brazil, including The Mighty Amazon, a song that the students helped write.
In order for the One World Cafe to be a success, we need your help. In true GFS fashion, the evening will be done in a potluck style. That being said, please take the opportunity to lend a hand and learn about the country your child has been studying all year. We are asking that each family bring a dish to share from their country of study:
- If your child is in PS classes B or G or 4th grade, please choose a Brazilian recipe to make.
- If your child is in PS classes A or grades K or 1st, please choose a Nepalese recipe to make.
- If your child is in PS classes C or grades 2nd - 3rd, please choose a Swiss recipe to make.

We look forward to sharing a wonderful and fun evening with you at the One World Cafe! While at the One World Café students are encouraged to stay off of the playground so they can enjoy the planned activities.
