GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2015

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Have a happy and safe Halloween!

We have two sectional football tickets available for tonight’s game for $6. Please see Jan Schrock in Athletics if you are interested.

Reminder: Please do not chain your bikes to the fence along Purl St. by the soccer fields. If you do, it’s possible your lock will be cut off and your bike will be moved.

The Ultimate Frisbee Club meets after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:45-5:00 p.m. on the administration field. If you’re interested in learning how to play the sport of Ultimate Frisbee, you can pick up your required paperwork from Mr. Snyder in the choir office, Lucas Kauffman, or in the main office. The paperwork should be turned in the first time you attend.

It’s time to order your 2015-2016 school yearbook. The cost of the book is $45 until December, meaning the best time to buy is now! You can find order forms at the RedZone, in the main office, library and the guidance office. If you ordered before today, your name was entered in a drawing to win a free yearbook. 2nd place will receive $5 in RedZone bucks. The winners will be announced TODAY!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: Everyone that plays athletics at any level will suffer a tough loss from time to time. If you are a Michigan football player, last week’s loss to rival Michigan State is as tough as they come. Michigan’s punter fumbled the snap and MSU scored with no time left to win the game. Was it the punter’s fault? Was it a bad snap? Was it a coaching decision? In the long run, it doesn’t really matter. But one thing I do know is this: never let a play or game, good or bad, define you as a person. What really defines you is what you learn from your sport’s experience. Hopefully it makes you a better person and helps prepare you for future challenges in life!

The Faith Mission in Elkhart is giving away coats for WOMEN & CHILDREN on Tuesday, November 3rd from 1-6:00 p.m. at 801 Benham Avenue.  Each woman and child MUST be present to receive a coat.  You may not pick up a coat for anyone who is not present.  Please see flyers on bulletin boards throughout GHS for more information.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: Whether you are a starter for your team or a bench player (substitute), then it’s your responsibility to stay focused and ready when you are not in the game. The Colts Andrew Luck did not play the last two games, but was still engaged on the sidelines, even getting water for his teammates. He knew he wasn’t playing, but did all that he could to contribute to his team. Are you a positive influence on your team when you aren’t playing? Are you doing everything off the field (court) to help your team to a victory? Successful teams see enthusiasm from everyone!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: What traits do you possess that set you apart from the other athletes in your sport? Do you give much thought about the little things that could make a big difference in your performance and playing time? Too many times young athletes get caught up in the physical portion of their sport, forgetting about the importance of a good mental approach as well. Setting yourself apart from others mentally might be the key for more success and more playing time. So concentrate on playing smarter by limiting your turnovers (regardless of your sport), and do away with foolish mistakes and mental errors. While no one is perfect, making fewer mistakes because of your mental toughness will give your coach the confidence to count on you when the going gets tough!

The Goshen Public Library doesn’t just lend books! We also offer FREE activities for young adults.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: What traits do you possess that set you apart from the other athletes in your sport? Do you give much thought about the little things that could make a big difference in your performance and playing time? Too many times young athletes get caught up in the physical portion of their sport, forgetting about the importance of a good mental approach as well. Setting yourself apart from others mentally might be the key for more success and more playing time. So concentrate on playing smarter by limiting your turnovers (regardless of your sport), and do away with foolish mistakes and mental errors. While no one is perfect, making fewer mistakes because of your mental toughness will give your coach the confidence to count on you when the going gets tough!

The Goshen Public Library doesn’t just lend books! We also offer FREE activities for young adults. Stop in on Thursdays after school from 4-6:00 p.m. to hang out, study, find an independent reading book, play a board game, color or just chillax at the teen café!

At Nerd’s Night Out on October 16th, bring your friends to the Leaky Cauldron for a Harry Potter-themed party and tournament from 5-8:00 p.m. There will be food for all and prizes for the winners! Finally, our regular programming will conclude this month with the Crafty Bandits on Monday, October 26th from 4-6:00 p.m. where we’ll have snacks and decorate mugs.

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!

Mascot Change Process Underway

Recent community input regarding the district mascot change process and timeline at the Goshen Community School Board meeting on Tuesday, September 29, has sparked some community conversation regarding a possible change in the timeline for the mascot transition.

Cathie Cripe, school board president noted, “We recognize the decision to change the mascot has been difficult. We continue to appreciate the community’s engagement with the issue. The plans and the timeline defined in the July decision remain the same. The change will be effective January 1, 2016.”

A student-led steering committee of 25 student members is leading the process in defining a new mascot. A “submissions of ideas” window is currently open on the GCS website as a means of community involvement and input. Guidelines for the submission of ideas are available on the site. Five administrative and teaching staff members are working with the committee.

Cripe went on to note, “As a board we are proud of our students, their academic and co-curricular accomplishments, and how they conduct themselves. They are working diligently with our school leaders to create a broad and inclusive mascot identification process.”

District officials have noted that there will be changes in various facilities over the course of the next several months as the transition begins. The sequence and timing of these changes will follow a process of prioritization given the nature of the work, and the opportunities allowed through our academic and co-curricular calendar. Critical to this process is our effort not to disrupt athletic practices and competition dates.

When asked about uniforms, officials confirmed that multiple teams, currently and in the past, do not have reference or images to the “Redskins” mascot on their uniforms. For those programs, a change in uniforms is not an issue. For other programs, the athletic director and head coaches have worked together in defining a plan to either order new uniforms now, or wait until a new mascot is named.

Diane Woodworth, superintendent stated, “The mascot issue is difficult because people care about this school system and the work that is done. Regardless of where people stand, we all are proud of the hard work our students and staff are putting in to continue a tradition of excellence, while still moving our schools forward to a new era for Goshen. We take great pride in the many accomplishments of our students, musicians, and athletes, and we appreciate the quality educators in our district.”
