Goshen Community Schools will host three public meetings to further explain the Strategic Planning Facilities Committee recommendation to the school board.  Their recommendation was to proceed with building a new 5-8 Intermediate School on the school-owned property at SR 119 and Greene Road, and to convert the current Goshen Middle School to a 5-8 Intermediate School as well.  Please plan to attend one of the meetings listed below to learn more about the rationale that led to this recommendation and to give your input.  There will be table group discussions held following the presentation in order to receive feedback from the public.  Meetings will be held at these locations and times:

  • Monday, December 4th at 7:00 p.m. at the Goshen High School Cafeteria
  • Tuesday, December 12th at 6:00 p.m. at the Goshen Middle School Cafeteria

Anyone interested in Ski Club for the 2018 season needs to see Mrs. Clark in room 2280.  Forms and money are due by December 15th.

ATTENTION ALL SRT CLASSES:  We will have a competition between all of the SRT’s to see who can collect the most bottle caps.  Starting this week, there will be bins in each SRT classroom and the caps will be collected every week. The winning SRT with the most caps will get HOMEMADE CINNAMON ROLLS or a PIZZA PARTY!  The competition will end before Spring Break.  If we collect 400 pounds as a school, we will be able to recycle them into a park bench.  Don’t miss out on this opportunity to save the environment and win a prize!  If you would like to collect or sort caps during SRT contact Mrs. Swihart in room 2200 or email her at  It will count for NHS volunteer hours and it looks great on college applications!
