JAG is sponsoring a trip to Ancilla College on October 15th for juniors and seniors. Lunch and transportation will be provided. The permission slip can be picked up from Ms. Hollinger in Guidance and returned to her when it’s signed. It is first come first serve, and there are limited spots available, so don’t delay!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: I read an article recently about a volleyball coach and her approach to her team about practice. She stated to her players that they probably tell people all the time, “I have to go to practice, it’s a requirement.” You rarely tell people, “I get to go to volleyball practice. It’s an opportunity.” What a difference in attitude! How you view something can make a significant improvement in your approach and the results you might get. Regardless of your sport, and whether you are in season or not, why not look at every practice as an opportunity? By doing so, you may find yourself having more fun and getting better results!

For the next two weekends the GHS Fall play (Anne of Green Gables) will be presented at the Downtown Goshen Theatre. Show times are: October 3rd and 4th at 2:00 p.m., October 9th at 7:30 p.m. and October 10th at 2:00 p.m. The cost is $5 for students and $7 for non-students.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: One of the many challenges facing the high school athlete is how to respond to the media (school newspaper, local paper, radio or television) after a hard earned victory or a tough defeat. Athletes are most vulnerable after a tough loss. Choose your words carefully and think about what you want to say before you say it. Don’t make excuses and give credit where credit is due. After a victory, it’s important to remain humble. There are usually multiple reasons your team wins, so give credit to all of those involved. Short answers are better than long ones. The more you have the experience of talking with the media, the more comfortable you will become. Win or lose, enjoy the opportunity of your interview. It becomes easier with time!

It’s homecoming week! Today is Redskin Day!

Effective Thursday, line 4 in the cafeteria will also be cashless.  The ONLY place you will be able to use cash will be the snack room. You can deposit money during breakfast in the cafeteria or anytime online at myschoolbucks.com.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: This past week a Texas high school and two of its football players were involved in an ugly exchange with a football referee.  In short, the ref was blindsided and was intentionally run over and attacked by the two players. As a student-athlete, you know that emotions run high when you are competing and trying to win. However, there is never a time to justify bad behavior. Regardless of the circumstance, never lose your cool and composure. Part of competing fairly means respecting all of those involved: the officials, coaches, teammates, opponents and the fans. It’s a fact that only one team can win, but everyone loses when bad behavior and bad decision making becomes the headlines!

Sophomore class t-shirt order forms are now available in all sophomore SRT rooms and in Mrs. Newport’s classroom (3200). The order forms are due by Monday to Mrs. Newport and the shirts will cost $10. Money is due with your order form.

All junior student-athletes are encouraged to take part in the Be the Best leadership program that will take place during 2nd period and SRT in the auditorium on Tuesday, September 29th.  Please sign up for this workshop in the athletic office by Wednesday. Excuses vs. Excellence…..What’s it gonna be Goshen?

Jim Whittaker from Goshen College is running sports performance every Monday and Wednesday after school from 4:00-5:00 p.m. at the GHS track for all GHS student athletes not currently in a fall sport.  This is a great way to improve your athleticism!  You need a current physical exam and concussion paperwork on file in the athletic office to join.  See you at the track!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: This past week a Texas high school and two of its football players were involved in an ugly exchange with a football referee.  In short, the ref was blindsided and was intentionally run over and attacked by the two players. As a student-athlete, you know that emotions run high when you are competing and trying to win. However, there is never a time to justify bad behavior. Regardless of the circumstance, never lose your cool and composure. Part of competing fairly means respecting all of those involved: the officials, coaches, teammates, opponents and the fans. It’s a fact that only one team can win, but everyone loses when bad behavior and bad decision making becomes the headlines!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: The start of a new school year is usually fun and exciting. There’s nothing like a fresh start! How do you keep that excitement brewing? Here are a few suggestions: Keep up with your studies and make a habit of not falling behind. Eat healthy. Get plenty of rest/sleep. If you are presently involved in a sport, be engaged in the team and pay close attention to all the details it takes to become a contributor whether you start or not. The first grading period will be here before you know it. Make that your top priority!

Herff Jones will be here again on Friday in the commons during lunch for class ring orders.

If you need an opportunity to earn extra credits or make-up credits, see your counselor to sign up for Merit on The Move that starts on September 16th after school in the Apex Lab. Space is limited, so talk with your counselor soon!
