IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: One of the many challenges facing today’s student-athlete is how to avoid burnout. Do you play one sport or multiple sports? Do you train the year around or part time? Have you given up another sport in the last year or two? Burnout can come from a variety of reasons. Some include putting too much pressure on yourself, having higher expectations than reasonable, and feeling pressure from a coach or your parents. The best way to avoid burnout is to constantly remind yourself that you play sports for the fun and enjoyment. Don’t ever lose that perspective. While it’s hard to take time off during the season, be sure to give yourself time away in the off season. Burnout stems from doing the same thing over and over again. Be sure to change training habits in the off season. And most importantly remember, sports is only a game. Be sure to treat it that way!

The guidance office has received a few new scholarships. Stop in to check them out!

The GHS Talon is now online at talon.goshenschools.org! Check it out for web exclusives, student opinion polls (who is your favorite lunch lady?) and a special photo sneak peek of the GHS production of Mary Poppins.

Due to ISTEP testing, the Career Center field trip has been postponed until Thursday, March 24th. The trip is now full. If you signed up, please check the list outside of the Guidance office to make sure that your name is on there.

3-14-16 Board Recognitions

GHS senior Hudson Kay was recognized for placing 9th in state finals diving competition. He stated that next year he will go to West Point Military Academy to continue his education and diving. Administrators noted that during his distinctive GHS athletic career, he was also a regional qualifier in pole vault, and a member of the semi-state tennis team.

Mark Perry, GCS technology associate, and Jim Pickard, GHS assistant principal, were recognized for going above and beyond in preparing for statewide assessments (ISTEP). There was a change made to the testing procedures late on a Friday evening, and Mark and Jim both came in on Saturday and Sunday to ensure that everything was ready for student testing on Monday morning.

GHS IB students were recognized for their participation in a project to support a fellow IB high school in Flint, Michigan. The students contacted the high school in Flint and asked them how they could help them following a serious water crisis in Flint. The Flint students told them that so many people had provided water bottles, which were needed. However, because of the massive use of bottled water in their city, there is now a need for recycling containers to dispose of the bottles. The GHS students made it their mission to provide recycling bins for Flint. They received a donation of 50 barrels from the Goshen water treatment plant, which they then cleaned and painted for Flint’s use. On March 24th, students will travel to Flint to present the recycling bins. They will travel by a Cardinal bus, which has been donated for student transportation for the day. The barrels will be transported on a GCS box truck. The students thanked the community for the many donations they have received for their project, and their teachers, Carl Weaver and Theresa Collins, for their leadership. Several students attended the meeting to inform the board about their service project. The entire junior class of IB students includes:

Aguilar, David

Antal, Katarina

Avila, Ana

Berg, Zachery

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: One of the many challenges facing today’s student-athlete is how to avoid burnout. Do you play one sport or multiple sports? Do you train the year around or part time? Have you given up another sport in the last year or two? Burnout can come from a variety of reasons. Some include putting too much pressure on yourself, having higher expectations than reasonable, and feeling pressure from a coach or your parents. The best way to avoid burnout is to constantly remind yourself that you play sports for the fun and enjoyment. Don’t ever lose that perspective. While it’s hard to take time off during the season, be sure to give yourself time away in the off season. Burnout stems from doing the same thing over and over again. Be sure to change training habits in the off season. And most importantly remember, sports is only a game. Be sure to treat it that way!

The guidance office has received a few new scholarships. Stop in to check them out!

The GHS Talon is now online at talon.goshenschools.org! Check it out for web exclusives, student opinion polls (who is your favorite lunch lady?) and a special photo sneak peek of the GHS production of Mary Poppins.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: One of the many responsibilities of a coach or teacher is to correct the student-athlete when you do something wrong or need improvement. How are you when it comes to handling constructive criticism or suggestions? Remember, there are all different styles and deliveries when teaching or coaching someone. Be sure to listen to the message. Some will be negative in the delivery, others will be positive. But filter the delivery and listen to the message.  Handling criticism and instruction will only make you better. Everyone needs improvement, so take those suggestions to help you become a better person, student, and athlete!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: One of the many responsibilities of a coach or teacher is to correct the student-athlete when you do something wrong or need improvement. How are you when it comes to handling constructive criticism or suggestions? Remember, there are all different styles and deliveries when teaching or coaching someone. Be sure to listen to the message. Some will be negative in the delivery, others will be positive. But filter the delivery and listen to the message.

Handling criticism and instruction will only make you better. Everyone needs improvement, so take those suggestions to help you become a better person, student, and athlete!

Due to ISTEP testing, the Career Center field trip has been postponed until Thursday, March 24th. Those students with signed permission slips will still be allowed to attend.
