IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  All teachers and coaches use the expression “no excuses” from time to time.  Have you made excuses for not playing well or making a poor grade in the classroom?  It’s easy to place blame on others to cover-up your own deficiencies.  However, making excuses is rarely justified.  Not only that, teachers and coaches don’t like hearing about it.  Other than sickness or a justified injury, don’t use a weak excuse if you under-perform.  Instead, take accountability and move on to your next challenge.  By doing so, you will gain the respect and confidence of all those around you!

Communication Regarding GHS

Goshen Community Schools uses social media as a means to communicate information about school events, delays or closings, student and staff achievements, and other noteworthy items to parents, students, and interested community members.

Today, social media was used to communicate an evacuation at Goshen High School (See GHS/GPD Press Release). We hope the community will understand that our choice to use social media to communicate events was made so that parents would know their children were safe. Student safety is always our top priority. The administrators charged with the safety of GHS were focused solely on the safe evacuation of students and staff, and the cooperative work with the police and fire departments. Other GCS staff members, not directly involved, used social media to attempt to keep parents and community members informed of events at GHS. In situations like today, parents will be notified as soon as possible. However, the first priority will continue to be securing the safety of those in our buildings.

As supporters and members of our GCS community, we invite you to follow Goshen Community Schools: On Twitter @GoshenSchools or like us on Facebook, Goshen Community Schools.

GHS/GPD Press Release

At about 12:00pm, Officers were called to the Goshen high school in reference to an unknown package, noticed by a passing teacher, under a bush near the Whiteman wing. In the interest of personal safety, the Goshen High School administration made the decision to evacuate the students to the area of the baseball field and Administration Center green space.

A large perimeter was set by officers and closer examination was conducted by police and fire personnel. Goshen K9 unit “hit” on the device as containing electrical wires or components.   The Elkhart Police Department bomb squad was contacted to potentially assist with disposal of the device.

The device was determined to be an electrical lighting device placed there by an electrician contracted by the school system to perform work at the high school. The electrician had left the lighting device under the bush, “out of the way” while he left for lunch.

EPD bomb squad was told to disregard and students were allowed to return to the school. Students and staff were evacuated for approximately 45 minutes.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  All teachers and coaches use the expression “no excuses” from time to time.  Have you made excuses for not playing well or making a poor grade in the classroom?  It’s easy to place blame on others to cover-up your own deficiencies.  However, making excuses is rarely justified.  Not only that, teachers and coaches don’t like hearing about it.  Other than sickness or a justified injury, don’t use a weak excuse if you under-perform.  Instead, take accountability and move on to your next challenge.  By doing so, you will gain the respect and confidence of all those around you!

Students who did not pick up senior products last week will have one additional chance.  Jostens will return Tuesday, May 3rd from 7:45-8:25 a.m.  Once again only cash or money orders will be accepted as payment.  Students with questions should contact Jostens directly at Greg.muncy@jostens.com or (260) 483-1825.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Most coaches tell their athletes to be careful about their content when it comes to tweeting.  Let’s face it, it’s more fun to tweet about success instead of failure.  However, if you are a high school athlete, chances are you will have more subpar moments than successful ones.  It’s part of being an athlete.  PGA golfer Ricky Fowler had one of those bad moments in the first round of the Masters, shooting a high score and giving himself no chance of winning.  Critics were making fun of his high-top golf shoes.  His tweet said, “I was always taught if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all.”  How do you react to negative comments and subpar games?  Most of us are sensitive and care about how others perceive us.  Can you react in a positive way and make no excuses?  Whether you tweet or not, don’t say anything that you might regret later.  Failure can be a part of any sporting event and it is nothing to be ashamed of!

Attention all GHS students:  The day you’ve all been waiting for has arrived!  The Mr. GHS buckets started this week.  There will be a different category for each day. Instead of voting on the traditional physical features of our contestants, this year you will vote on the following: favorite movie, favorite quote, favorite food, favorite cartoon, ideal superhero duo and best baby picture.  All of the proceeds from the buckets go to the boys’ choice charities.  So throw your spare change in their buckets during lunch!

Stop in on Thursdays after school from 4:00-6:00 p.m. to hang out, study, find an independent reading book, play a board game, color or just chillax at the teen café!  And, of course, we’ll also have hot chocolate and coffee.  Our next Weebz Anonymous Manga Club meeting will be Wednesday, April 20th from 4:00-5:00 p.m. and the Courageous Pages Writing Club is on Wednesday, April 27th from 4:00-6:00 p.m. in the teen area.  Our regular monthly programming also continues on Friday, April 15th from 4:30-6:30 p.m. with our Nerd’s Night Out program where you can test yourself and your friends with a variety of teen challenges…..pizza party included!  Then, our Pages & Popcorn club meets on Thursday, April 21st from 5:30-8:00 p.m.  We’ll talk about the classic spooky R.L Stine books and watch the movie, Goosebumps.  Finally, our regular programming will conclude this month with our Crafty Bandits club, where we’ll smash flowers to make cards.  To sign up or for more information about our programs, stop by the library or check out our GPL Teens webpage, Facebook or Twitter.

If you are a senior and looking for full-time employment after graduation, there are two opportunities to earn $14-$15/hour and learn a skilled trade of maintenance on machinery.  Both Benteler and AJP Brunk Corporations will train on-the-job, as well as pay for training to get certified in areas such as electrical and pneumatics.  If you stay with the company you could earn over $20/hour within a couple years.  If you are interested in one of these opportunities see Mr. Bechtel for details.

After hours homework help for any class will start this week!  On Mondays and Wednesdays you can meet in the media center after school until 5:00 p.m.

Key Club and Kona Ice will be selling shaved ice during tomorrow’s home track meet.  Shaved ice is available in 10 flavors for $3 to $5 per cup.  Refillable cups are also available.  Come out and support the boys track team and Key Club!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Most coaches tell their athletes to be careful about their content when it comes to tweeting.  Let’s face it, it’s more fun to tweet about success instead of failure.  However, if you are a high school athlete, chances are you will have more subpar moments than successful ones.  It’s part of being an athlete.  PGA golfer Ricky Fowler had one of those bad moments in the first round of the Masters, shooting a high score and giving himself no chance of winning.  Critics were making fun of his high-top golf shoes.  His tweet said, “I was always taught if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all.”  How do you react to negative comments and subpar games?  Most of us are sensitive and care about how others perceive us.  Can you react in a positive way and make no excuses?  Whether you tweet or not, don’t say anything that you might regret later.  Failure can be a part of any sporting event and it is nothing to be ashamed of!

Attention all GHS students:  The day you’ve all been waiting for has arrived!  The Mr. GHS buckets start this week.  There will be a different category for each day. Instead of voting on the traditional physical features of our contestants, this year you will vote on the following: favorite movie, favorite quote, favorite food, favorite cartoon, ideal superhero duo and best baby picture.  All of the proceeds from the buckets go to the boys’ choice charities.  So throw your spare change in their buckets during lunch!
