GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR MONDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2015

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Sports Performance will be offered for all athletes not in a winter sport through Christmas break.  It will be offered on Mondays and Thursdays from 4-5:00 p.m. in the Warehouse.  You should change in the weight room locker rooms and take all your things with you over to the Warehouse.  If there are questions, contact Coach Clark or Coach Smeltzer.  You must have a sports physical and concussion paperwork on file with the Athletic Department before participating.

We will have extended media hours for tutoring on December 2nd, 7th, 9th, 14th and 16th. You can get help, study or just do homework from 3:45-5:00 p.m. You need to be in the media center by 3:45 p.m. any day you attend.

Anyone interested in playing volleyball intramurals can stop by the athletic office and pick up a team or individual registration form. Games will be played through January here at GHS. Each player will receive a t-shirt and the winner of each league will get a pizza party. Each player will have a fee of $8. This fee will cover any intramurals that you participate in this year (volleyball, soccer, basketball). Forms and money are due to Mrs. West in the athletic office by the end of the day Friday, December 11th. For more information see Mrs. West or email her at kwest@goshenschools.org.

Auditions for the musical “Mary Poppins” will be tomorrow after school.  Bring a song to sing and get involved.  Brush up your best version of any song you would like to perform.  Callbacks will be Wednesday after school.   This year’s musical will be incredible with all the wonderful songs and with a professional fly team coming in to help with the special effects.  Don’t miss your opportunity to audition!

Drama Club Christmas presentation group – Rehearsals are in the auditorium on Thursday at 3:45 p.m. and Tuesday, December 8th at 3:45 p.m. You must be in attendance at these rehearsals to be in the production. Lines are to be memorized by Thursday.  See your director or Mrs. Long if you have questions.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: What’s your mental approach when you are in a slump or having trouble getting playing time? Do you sulk? Do you feel sorry for yourself? Do you blame the coach or take accountability? How do you react in game time situations, especially in rival games? Gary Danielson, color commentator for CBS and former college (Purdue) and professional quarterback, said something during a recent broadcast that makes plenty of sense. “In the biggest games it’s the littlest things that make all the difference.” Sometimes when we look at the big picture, we forget about all the little things that can lead to success.  Pay attention to those little things along the way to lift yourself up when it really counts!

 

MEETINGS DURING SRT:

Key Club will meet in the cafeteria on Thursday during the 2nd session of SRT.  Members who ordered t-shirts should bring $9 cash or a check payable to GHS Key Club to the meeting.

GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 2015

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Sports Performance will be offered for all athletes not in a winter sport starting after Thanksgiving through Christmas break.  It will be offered on Mondays and Thursdays from 4-5:00 p.m. in the Warehouse.  You should change in the weight room locker rooms and take all your things with you over to the Warehouse.  If there are questions, contact Coach Clark or Coach Smeltzer.  You must have a sports physical and concussion paperwork on file with the Athletic Department before participating.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: Training under supervision is much easier than training when no one is watching. Wouldn’t you agree? Carli Lloyd, female soccer star and 2015 Sportsman of the Year in Sports Illustrated, gives all of her credit to success to her training when no one was watching. She almost quit soccer at age 21, but 12 years later she led the USA to the gold in the Women’s World Cup because of her strict training program. “If a player trains when nobody is watching, she might be able to do superhuman things when the entire world is watching.” Lloyd did! When you start training for your next season, coaches don’t have to be watching. What you do on your own will make the biggest difference!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: Athletes are always faced with challenges. One of the toughest is to finish out a game, meet, or match that you have no chance to win. When you reach that point where you know it’s a loss, how do you react? Do you give up? Do you hang your head? Do you cop an attitude? How you finish those types of games says a lot about you. Do you still give 100%? Are you still positive with your teammates? Do you make up excuses? The next time you are involved in a sporting event and the time on the clock tells you it’s a loss, don’t let it reflect on your end of the game behavior. Handle it with class and move on immediately to your next challenge!

GHS will be hosting a Red Cross blood drive next Friday.  Sign-ups are happening now in social studies classes.  See Mrs. Clark in room 2280 if you have questions.

We’ll have lots of board and card games to try, plus pizza!  Then, Thursday, November 19th is our Pages & Popcorn Club from 5:30-8:00 p.m. We’ll talk about the crazy-popular final installation of the Hunger Games series, Mockingjay. We’ll watch Part I, eat snacks, talk about the book and you will have a chance to win tickets to see Part II!  Finally, our regular programming will conclude this month with the Crafty Bandits on Monday, November 23rd from 4:00-6:00 p.m. where we’ll learn about modern art by making some cool coasters.

For GHS, voting will take place during the daily announcement time slot; at GMS students and staff will vote throughout day (during Social Studies classes). GHS/GMS students and staff who are absent on November 10th will have the chance to vote on Wednesday, November 11th during lunch.

Alumni who live within the Goshen School district boundaries (Elkhart Township) may vote on Tuesday, November 10th from noon to 9:00 p.m. and on Wednesday, November 11th from 7:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m. Alumni will need to provide two forms of ID (one of which must be a photo ID) and their graduation year. Alumni are encouraged to enter GHS through Door C, which is located by the athletic department, and may park by the white mini-buses located in the lot along US 33. Alumni voting will take place in the GHS main gym concession stand.

As a reminder, if the margin of victory for the winning mascot is not greater than 2% of the total votes cast, a run-off election will be held in which only students will be allowed to vote. Assuming there is no run-off vote, a special board meeting will be held on Monday, November 16th at 6:00 p.m. at the GCS administration center. The only agenda item for the meeting will be the approval of the new GHS/GMS mascot and logo.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: The University of Toledo is not known as a college football power, but they find themselves ranked in the Top 20 in the Amway Coaches Poll. There are plenty of reasons why, but the number one reason is their coach, Matt Campbell, and his great approach. You must admire his philosophy. Here, in a few words, is what Campbell talked about in a recent article in USA Today: “As much as this is about winning and losing games, we’re still teachers. With everything these guys are going through, it’s hard. We were all 18 or 19 once, but we can’t lose the fundamentals of how to do things the right way from yes sir, no sir, please and thank you’ to how do I carry myself the right way to do the right thing? It’s not just about football.” Let the simple things in life be the foundation you build your life upon!
