Update Regarding Remaining Two Weather Make-Up Days

After much discussion, a decision has been made to use Thursday and Friday, April 3 & 4 from the first week of Spring Break as our two additional make up days.

There were suggestions to use President’s Day and/or Good Friday as make-up days. These are not available due to contract obligations.

Please remember, there really are not many great options that remain, so we urge you to try to be flexible in your outlook toward this situation.

Here is the entire list of the 8 make up days for GCS:

  • Feb 14
  • March 17
  • April 2
  • April 3
  • April 4
  • June 4
  • June 5
  • June 6

  • College visits: Find out which colleges are visiting our school.
  • Communication: Family Connection lets us share information with you and your child about upcoming events and other web resources for college and career information. 
  • College Searches:  Family Connection has an awesome college search feature where you can search schools by a multiple of variables.  
   To log in, use the username and password your son or daughter has created.  Starting this year, we are requiring students to use their Goshen Schools gmail address.  Contact your student’s counselor if you have any questions.

 

Today’s students will need more than a high school diploma to get ahead. The Learn More Resource CenterIndiana’s Pre-K to College Connection, helps Hoosiers of all ages realize a better future. Follow the link to find information, tools, opportunities and support.

Girls JV/V Basketball schedule change for 2-8

On Saturday, February 8th, the GHS girls JV/V basketball team will make up their game against Fairfield.  The JV game will be played in Whiteman Gym at Goshen High School and start time for the JV game is at 6:00 pm.  This location change is because of the IHSAA regional wrestling tournament being held in the main gym.  The scheduled start time for the varsity game is at 7:30 and will be held in the main gym.

Also due to the regional wrestling tournament in the GHS main gym, fans are encouraged to park in the west parking lot near the auditorium and enter at Door M by the GHS cafeteria.  Admission through the doors around the gym and the circle drive will be for Goshen High School season ticket holders only.  Those needing to purchase a ticket must enter Door M.
