IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  While watching my grandson play a youth basketball game over the weekend, I was impressed with his attitude and concentration while he wasn’t in the game.  At his age, they play an equal amount of time so all the kids spend time on the bench.  In contrast to his young teammates, it was noticeable that he was focused on watching his teammates and the game.  In high school team sports more than half of the players are not participating in the game at a given time.  Can you say that you or your teammates stay focused on the game or match when you are not in the game?  Are you still involved or disinterested?  Concentrating on the game when you are on the bench is no guarantee of success when you get your chance to play, but it does show that you are engaged and care about the end result.  Those that stay involved mentally while not playing have a much higher success rate when their chance finally comes or its time to give someone a rest!

If you are interested in playing intramural basketball in January, sign-ups continue through this week.  You can register as an individual or as a team and must have a concussion form on file in order to participate.  You can pick up the concussion form and registration forms from the bench outside Athletics, the Main Office, from Mr. Lucas Kauffman or from Mr. Willsey in room 1170.  The cost is $8.  Registration, concussion forms and money need to be handed into Mr. Kauffman or Mr. Willsey in room 1170 by TODAY.  If you have any questions, please see either one of them.

There has been a very large signup for the spring break marine biology trip.  Students who want to secure a spot on the trip need to make the down payment as soon as possible or talk to Mr. Weaver about arrangements.  It is very important that you take care of this in the coming week!

Students should take a look at their 2nd semester schedules in Skyward ASAP.  If there is a missing period in your schedule or a class you are no longer taking please fill out the “Schedule Issue” form and return it to guidance.  You can get these form from teachers, your SRT teacher or the guidance office.  Guidance will not make student request changes when we return in January, only teacher change requests.  Your schedule must be changed before you leave for Christmas break. We are trying to eliminate starting the 2nd semester with a lot of changes.  We know there will be some changes if you fail a class, or a teacher makes a recommendation for a change in placement.  Don’t wait until the last minute, the class you want may be full!

Ski Club:  Don’t forget that forms and money are due by TODAY!  Also, if you are interested in ordering ski club apparel, see Mrs. Clark for an order form.  Apparel orders are also due TODAY.

GHS Softball Gives Back

GHS softball coach Brent Kulp on the Knights of Columbus food drive: “The Elkhart Knights of Columbus provides 350 families with 2 big boxes of food with a Christmas meal inside on December 10th.  This year we will do boxes for 35 families at Chandler Elementary and 25 families at Chamberlain Elementary. Included in the boxes will be a 5 pound ham from Troyer Meats, bread, peanut butter, mac & cheese, boxed potatoes, and several other items of nonperishable foods.”

“The annual pack night was Friday, December 9th which included my softball players, families, and friends.  This is always a great evening where the community comes together for other less fortunate families in Elkhart County, to give back a little something for Christmas.  My softball players at Goshen have been involved for the last 3 years and really enjoy this experience.”

Super Mileage Club will meet December 13th from 3:40-5:00 p.m. in room 8010.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  There are times when underclassmen view their future athletic success as making the varsity and getting playing time in the 9th or 10th grade.  Are you one of those athletes?  Did your parents put pressure on you or did you put pressure on yourself?  Sometimes (really most of the time) you must wait your turn.  There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.  Take advantage of the freshmen and junior varsity experience to develop your game.  More importantly, don’t become discouraged because it’s how you perform as a junior and senior that really counts.  Don’t pressure yourself early on if you need more time for skill development and maturity.  Sometimes the really good athletes are late bloomers!

Herff Jones will be here on December 15th during lunch in the commons to deliver class rings.  If you have not placed an order for a cap and gown, you can see them during this time as well.

Students should take a look at their 2nd semester schedules in Skyward ASAP.  If there is a missing period in your schedule or a class you are no longer taking please fill out the “Schedule Issue” form and return it to guidance.  You can get these form from teachers, your SRT teacher or the guidance office.  PLEASE DO THIS BY TODAY.  Guidance will not make student request changes when we return in January, only teacher change requests.  Your schedule must be changed before you leave for Christmas break.

GMS/GHS Orchestra Honors/Awards

GCS Orchestra students winning their captions in the 2016 Indiana Music Education Association Composition Competition:

As more students find an interest in music composition and discover opportunities to highlight their work, so has the number of winning compositions increased.  This year four students won their categories.  Nathan Berkey won High School Orchestra for his composition “The Magistrate’s Arrival”, Sam Stoltzfus won Middle School Chamber for “Battle Shore”, Josh Schrock won Middle School Arranging for his arrangement of the “Theme from Fallout 4”, and Daniel Elizalde for Middle School Orchestra composing “Pluckish Dysphoria” which the 8th grade orchestra performed this fall. The statewide recognition of their compositions will take place at the IMEA convention at 11 a.m. on January 14th.

Four GHS Orchestra students accepted into the 2017 Indiana All State Orchestra:

At the end of last week we found out that four GHS orchestra students were accepted into the Indiana All State Orchestra.  To be accepted students had to prepare recorded auditions consisting of 6-8 excerpts of professional level music.  Hugh Birky (senior violinist), Cade Fisher (junior bassist), Matthew Herrmann (junior violinist), and Anton Pham (sophomore violist) were accepted into the prestigious ensemble.  Caroline Greaser and Kathryn Herschberger were also selected as alternates should an opening occur.  This is the first time Goshen has had more than two students placed in the ensemble since 2011.  Should all six become performers in the ensemble, it will be the first time since 2007.  They will perform at the IMEA Convention at 2:00 p.m. on January 14th.

GHS Red Wire Jazz Strings has been selected as an honor ensemble at this year’s IMEA State Convention on January 13th, 2017:

Each year in May directors submit recordings to be selected as an honor ensemble at the next year’s state convention.  To the best of the director’s knowledge, this is the first time a middle or high school jazz string ensemble has been selected as an honor ensemble for the convention.  The GHS Jazz String Ensemble consists of 32 students electing to come to practice each Thursday morning before school to learn about and perform jazz music.  They will perform in the Allen County Public Library theater on Friday, January 13th at 11:00 a.m.

The Ultimate Frisbee Club will play indoors in Whiteman gym this month.  The first time we will play is this Thursday at 8:30 p.m.  You must have forms turned in to Mr. Lucas Kauffman in order to participate.  You can pick forms up from Mr. Lucas Kauffman, Mr. Snyder in the choir office, Mr. Brubaker in 3050 or Mrs. Stealy in the main office.

There has been a very large signup for the spring break marine biology trip.  Students who want to secure a spot on the trip need to make the down payment as soon as possible or talk to Mr. Weaver about arrangements.  It is very important that you take care of this in the coming week!

Super Mileage Club will meet TOMORROW and December 13th from 3:40-5:00 p.m. in room 8010.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  There are times when underclassmen view their future athletic success as making the varsity and getting playing time in the 9th or 10th grade.  Are you one of those athletes?  Did your parents put pressure on you or did you put pressure on yourself?  Sometimes (really most of the time) you must wait your turn.  There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.  Take advantage of the freshmen and junior varsity experience to develop your game.  More importantly, don’t become discouraged because it’s how you perform as a junior and senior that really counts.  Don’t pressure yourself early on if you need more time for skill development and maturity.  Sometimes the really good athletes are late bloomers!

Herff Jones will be here on December 15th during lunch in the commons to deliver class rings.  If you have not placed an order for a cap and gown, you can see them during this time as well.

If you are a current sophomore or junior and are interested in travel, there will be an informational meeting for you and your parents about the next Europe Art Trip, 2018 where we will visit both Italy and Spain.  We will meet TODAY at 7:00 p.m. in room 1010 (across from the cafeteria).  Please see Mr. Zuber for details.

Students should take a look at their 2nd semester schedules in Skyward ASAP.  If there is a missing period in your schedule or a class you are no longer taking please fill out the “Schedule Issue” form and return it to guidance.  You can get these form from teachers, your SRT teacher or the guidance office.  PLEASE DO THIS BY FRIDAY.  Guidance will not make student request changes when we return in January, only teacher change requests.  Your schedule must be changed before you leave for Christmas break. We are trying to eliminate starting the 2nd semester with a lot of changes.  We know there will be some changes if you fail a class, or a teacher makes a recommendation for a change in placement.  Don’t wait until the last minute, the class you want may be full!

Any student interested in competing in this year’s National Shakespeare Competition should see Mr. Garvin in room 2220 prior to next week.  Get the information so you have time to practice over break!

Ski Club:  Don’t forget that forms and money are due by Friday, December 16th.  Also, if you are interested in ordering ski club apparel, see Mrs. Clark for an order form.  Apparel orders are also due December 16th.

BASKETBALL ANNOUNCMENT 1

REMINDER:  If you are ECA testing next week, please make sure that you bring your computers and make sure that they are charged.

Students should take a look at their 2nd semester schedules in Skyward, within the next two weeks.  Please do this as soon as possible.  If there is a missing period in your schedule or a class you are no longer taking please fill out the “Schedule Issue” form and return it to guidance.  You can get these form from teachers, your SRT teacher or the guidance office.  Please do this by December 9th.  Guidance will not make student request changes when we return in January, only teacher change requests.  Your schedule must be changed before you leave for Christmas break. We are trying to eliminate starting the 2nd semester with a lot of changes.  We know there will be some changes if you fail a class, or a teacher makes a recommendation for a change in placement.  Don’t wait until the last minute, the class you want may be full!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Do you set goals for yourself in the classroom and in your sport?  Do you follow through at the end of your grading period and the conclusion of your sport’s season and grade your results?  For the student who may be struggling, or the athlete that is going through a slump, have you ever thought of setting short term goals?  Short term goals are easier to track and they can supply instant gratification and encouragement if you achieve them.  If you are having a tough challenge or not achieving the playing time and results you desire, think about setting short term goals that challenge you in the short term.  Whether it’s to work harder, make your teammates better or just impressing your coach, do the things necessary to separate yourself from the others on your team!

Any student interested in competing in this year’s National Shakespeare Competition should see Mr. Garvin in room 2220 prior to finals week.  Get the information so you have time to practice over break!
