IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  This is boys basketball sectional week.  Past history says it’s a week of surprises.  Will we have a snowstorm?  What ranked team will be the first out?  What school will provide the biggest shock of the week?  Is your school a favorite or the underdog to take the sectional crown?  There is nothing more fun than participating in an event that the whole school gets behind.  Whether it’s a school play, a choral event or a team advancing along in a state tournament, it’s fun to be involved as the excitement grows and the event arrives.  As a member of your student body, make it a point to get involved in the week’s festivities.  The support shown by the students might make a difference in the outcome of that close game.  History could be made and the memories from those exciting games could be something that you remember and talk about fifty years later!

GHS/Flint Southwestern Academy Visit

On Thursday, Feb. 23, on an unseasonably warm day, the IB (International Baccalaureate) students from Goshen High School stood outside, anxiously awaiting their friends and fellow IB students from the Flint Southwestern Academy in Flint, MI. The two groups first met last year when the GHS students traveled to Flint for a visit.

Part of a full IB education is Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS), which are essential elements that every student must complete as part of the Diploma Programme (DP). As part of their commitment to service, the GHS IB students took a look at the water crisis in Flint, and wondered how they could help. They contacted the IB students at Flint Southwestern Academy, and learned that through many generous donations, they did not really need more water; what they needed was a way to recycle all of the empty bottles. The GHS students took that information and ran with it. They secured barrels to use for recycling from the Goshen Waste Water Treatment Plant, they worked with the GHS construction class to get the tops cut off of the barrels, they contacted the local Coca-Cola distributor to get lids for the barrels, and they spent hours and hours painting and personalizing the barrels for Flint Southwestern Academy. In a collective effort on the project, they also received help from the City of Goshen, other local businesses, and parents.

When the GHS students visited Flint last year, they received school shirts from their hosts. Many of the GHS students were wearing the Flint shirts when the bus pulled up in front of GHS on Feb. 23. According to a Flint student who was not involved in last year’s visit, “I was so excited when we pulled up, and I saw them wearing our shirts! It meant so much to me.” The GHS students held welcoming signs for their friends to the north, and there were cheers and hugs as the teachers and students joined the GHS contingency. Everyone made their way to the media center, where they were welcomed by IB coordinator Theresa Collins and one of the GHS students. And then, the students were further welcomed with a popular northern Indiana treat, Rise and Roll donuts, courtesy of IB teacher Carl Weaver.

After a quick snack, the students went out to the football field to do introductions (name and a pet peeve, some of which were pretty funny!) and play a few games. While games were going on, a few people were interviewed by WNDU reporter Kasey Chronis. Below are a few of the comments from the interviews:

Emma, GHS student- Emma stated that she was a part of the visit to Flint last year. She stated that what inspired her last year was reading about the water crisis, and figuring out how Goshen could help. “We were really proud of our project, and how we decorated the recycling bins specifically for their school and their mascot.” When asked if the students from both schools still discuss the water crisis, she responded “Well, they just want to be normal high school students, like everyone else. If the subject comes up, then we’ll talk about it. If not, we’ll just enjoy the day together.”

Nolan, Flint Southwestern Academy student- Nolan wasn’t in IB last year, so this was his first chance to meet the GHS students. He stated that he was excited to see GHS students wearing his school shirt, he was thankful for the new experiences of the day, and he hoped to use social media to keep in contact with GHS students. When asked if his family had been impacted by the water crisis, he said that they had been “a bit”. He added that “It meant a lot that the Goshen kids brought us the recycling containers, we still use them. It was neat that they personalized the bins for us; we use the one with music notes on it by the music rooms. And, I’m just happy to be here today!”

Bryce, Flint Southwestern Academy student- Bryce stated that he was an IB student last year too, so he was a part of the initial visit. He said it was a new experience. “We never had kids visit us from another state; come all that way just to see our school and visit us. The visit meant something to not only our school, but to the city as well. It was just something uplifting and it felt good to everyone. We still use those bins every day.”

Sherry, Flint Southwestern Academy IB coordinator- Sherry explained that the connection between the schools grew after GHS reached out to Flint about the water crisis. “They brought us the recycling bins, and it was so special because they looked into our school, and decorated them just for us.” She stated that it is good for the Flint students to meet with students from another IB school, “to see that they are taking the same classes, and facing the same assessments and challenges of an IB education.” She added that she would like to keep the partnership between the schools going year after year, because it is a valuable connection for both schools.

Following the games and interviews outside, the groups went back to the media center, where they welcomed student leaders from West Goshen Elementary, who are now in the candidacy phase of Primary Years IB. The West Goshen students brought a mixer/game with them for all of the students, centered on the attributes of the IB Learner Profile, which states “As IB learners we strive to be: Inquirers, Knowledgeable, Thinkers, Communicators, Principled, Open-Minded, Caring, Risk-Takers, Balanced, and Reflective.” The students split into three groups (which deliberately included students from all three schools), and then drew pieces of paper out of a bag. In each bag were the learner profile attributes, the definition of each attribute, and an example of each attribute. The students were instructed to talk to each other in their groups, and bring together the attribute, its definition, and an example of the attribute.

Following the West Goshen game, the students spread out to table groups (again with students from each school), and held a book sharing, led by the students from Flint Southwestern Academy. Flint students read passages from many different books, and then the students discussed learner profile traits that were exhibited in the book passages.

GHS students led the same table groups in a learner profile banner activity, in which each table chose an attribute and wrote something about the attribute and decorated their piece of paper. The GHS students gathered the papers at the end of the activity, and will eventually scan them all to make IB banners for each of the schools.

While the students were working together, WNDU conducted a few more interviews:

Barry Younghans, GHS principal- He stated that the partnership between the two schools means a lot. “The kids might be from different cultures and upbringings, but they are all just high school students, speaking a common language through an IB education. We would love for this to continue; it is great for kids.”

Theresa Collins, GHS IB coordinator- Theresa shared about how the IB TOK (Theory of Knowledge) class reached out to Flint as part of their educational service component, and the “kids just took it from there. It has been a really, really neat experience. When I retire, this CAS project with Flint, and all of the good that came out of it will be somewhere on my list of most significant memories from my teaching career.” She added that she keeps in touch with the teachers and IB coordinator from Flint, and hopes to continue the visits in the years to come.

Mitchell, GHS student- He traveled to Flint with the GHS group last year, and said that it was a great experience to deliver the recycling bins and connect with the students. He said that some of the students from both schools have kept in touch through social media.

At the end of the table work, the West Goshen students shared “spirit sticks” with their tablemates. Spirit sticks are what West Goshen students earn when a staff member recognizes that they are displaying one of the learner profile attributes; the sticks can be worn on lanyards or put on backpacks. There were a lot of risk-taker spirit sticks given out, as some of the students acknowledged that interacting with so many new people can be scary sometimes!

Before the West Goshen students left to return to their school, the students from all three schools went out to the courtyard and took a group picture. One photo had students simply standing still, and one showed them holding up their spirit sticks. In the first picture, you will notice a student in the back row with her face lifted up and her arms thrown up in apparent joy. Her posture alone could probably encapsulate the feelings of the day from most of the participants; it was simply positive, positive, positive!

After the pictures, the students had lunch together in the library, and heard a few words of welcome from Goshen’s Mayor, Jeremy Stutsman. He thanked the Flint Southwestern students for coming to Goshen, and let them know that the citizens of Goshen still think of them often and wish them well as their city recovers from their crisis. He stated that their situation has prompted many mayors across the country to work proactively to check water supplies and keep them safe for their citizens. He welcomed the students and educators to return to Goshen any time.

After lunch, GHS students led small groups of Flint students on tours throughout the school. The students checked out classrooms, the cafeteria, the auditorium, the construction technology shop, the weight room, and they also dropped in to see choir and jazz band students in action.

When the tours were done, it was time for GHS coordinators and students to thank their visitors for coming to GHS, to say goodbye, and to pass out Goshen RedHawks shirts to their friends from Flint.

It takes dedication and commitment to earn an IB diploma, but it can be made easier by sharing the experience with someone who understands what it takes. THANK YOU to our friends from Flint Southwestern Academy who came to GHS to play games, to eat together, to talk about common struggles and insights that come with an IB education, to set an example for younger IB students, and to increase everyone’s faith in humanity. Until next time.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Super Bowl 51 was Tom Brady’s fifth title.  His leadership and grit helped lead his team back from a 28-3 deficit.  This game will no doubt seal Brady’s legacy as the best quarterback to ever play the game.  However, Brady still realizes he is part of the team and not the team.  When asked why there has never been any friction between him and his coach, Brady answers quite simply, “He’s the coach, I’m the player.”  That simple philosophy is a quality that all athletes should take to heart.  Do you listen to your coach?  Do you let outside influences affect your attitude towards your coach?  If your coach asks you to do something, do you abide?  The most successful teams are those that believe in their coach and the system he/she runs!

Please join us for a college visit to Ivy Tech in Elkhart!  This is first come, first serve as space is limited.  Priority will be given to upperclassman.  See Ms. Gomez (2370) or Mrs. Stamatovich (JAG) to pick up and turn in permission slips.  PERMISSION SLIPS ARE DUE FEBRUARY 24th!

2017 GHS Scholastic Art Award Winners

For more than 90 years, The Scholastic Art & Writing Award program has sought to encourage, foster, and reward creativity in our nation’s classrooms and to confer recognition on emerging talent. Our region, which covers 18 counties, has participated for decades, beginning in the Tea Room of the former Robertson’s Department Store in downtown South Bend. L.S. Ayres hosted the exhibition until the South Bend Museum of Art became involved.

The South Bend Museum of Art is now the affiliate for the Scholastic Art Awards’ Northwest Indiana and Southwest Lower Michigan Region. This region includes the following counties: INDIANA counties of Benton, Cass, Elkhart, Fulton, Jasper, Kosciusko, Lake, LaPorte, Marshall, Newton, Porter, Pulaski, St. Joseph, Stark, White; and MICHIGAN counties of Berrien, Cass and St. Joseph.

The Scholastic Art Awards represents the most comprehensive national annual assessment of the creative spirit among American teens. Three core values have not changed since The Awards inception: freedom of expression, a blind adjudication process, and work criteria based on originality, technical proficiency, and emergence of personal voice. Students in seventh through twelfth grade submit digital images of their work, which is juried by more than 50 jurors solicited from the local arts and education community. A process of “blind adjudication” is used, whereby judging is determined on a merit basis with only the art object under review, without any knowledge as to student identity (gender, race, background, etc.). Jurors are instructed to select artwork that excels in 1) Originality, 2) Technical Skill, and 3) Emergence of a personal vision or voice.

Regional awards are given in several categories:

Gold Key: The highest level of achievement on the regional level.
Approximately 5 – 7% of all regional submissions are recognized with Gold Key Awards and all are considered for national-level recognition.

Silver Key: Approximately 7 – 10% of all regional submissions are recognized with Silver Key Awards.

Honorable Mention: This Award recognizes students with artistic potential. Approximately 10 – 15% of all regional submissions receive Honorable Mention Awards.

American Vision & Voice Nominees: Five works are selected out of all Gold Key works (across categories) as the “Best of Show” for each region.

Digital images of all of our GOLD KEY Awards are sent on to National Adjudication in New York City. Award recipients at the national level are invited to participate in the Awards Ceremony held in New York City at Carnegie Hall, have their work shown in noted galleries, attend workshops, be considered for scholarships, and have their names included in the New York Times article covering the Scholastic Art Awards.

2017 Goshen High School Award Winners include:

Dianna Campos, Honorable Mention, Silver Key (3),

Linda Clemons, Silver Key

Isaiah Conder, Gold Key, Honorable Mention (2), Silver Key

Elkah DeVoe, Gold Key

Madi Fry, Gold Key

Davis Hostetler, Gold Key (2), Honorable Mention (4), Silver Key

Amelia Marrufo, Honorable Mention

Paulina Medina Lopez, Gold Key, Honorable Mention

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  College basketball is getting close to tournament time, and one of the best mid-majors in the country, Illinois State, has relied on good defense while standing atop the Missouri Valley Conference, according to their coach Dan Muller.  Defense is important in all team sports.  It’s often been said that defense wins championships. Muller has been quoted as saying, “The key has been on defense. We aren’t afraid to call each other out if one of us gets beat.”  Defensive accountability is an important part of team success. When a teammate fails to do their part, there’s a right way to point out a weakness or slip up.  If you must call out a teammate, do so in a positive way.  It’s how you deliver the message that will either inspire your teammate or have a negative effect on the entire team!

Goshen High School Rumors

Goshen High School Rumors:

Goshen High School leadership is aware of the current social media rumors and the rumors are not true.

The safety and well-being of our students is our top priority. When we become aware of alleged concerns for our students, we investigate to learn the facts and communicate with students and families when necessary.

In our social media culture, rumors can go viral without the knowledge of the facts.

We ask that the current rumor not be replicated or shared. For those who have shared the rumor, we ask you to remove it from your social media accounts.

The students of our district are experiencing many good things in and out of the classroom this year. We should focus on their many positive accomplishments.

The students of Goshen deserve the best we can offer as they learn, grow and live into their future.

We value the partnerships we have with families, and the trust they have in us as we provide exceptional educational opportunities for all students across our district.

Rumores en Goshen High School

La directiva de Goshen High School se ha enterado de los rumores en las redes sociales actuales. Los rumores no son ciertos.

La seguridad y el bienestar de nuestros alumnos es nuestra máxima prioridad. Cuando nos enteramos de presuntas preocupaciones respecto a nuestros alumnos, investigamos para conocer los hechos y nos comunicamos con nuestros alumnos y con sus familias cuando es necesario.

En nuestra cultura de redes sociales, los rumores pueden volverse virales sin tener el conocimiento de los hechos.

Pedimos que el rumor actual no sea repetido ni compartido. Para aquellos que han compartido el rumor, les pedimos sacarlo de sus cuentas de redes sociales.

All GHS girls soccer players need to sign up to work concessions on Friday, February 10th for the boys home basketball game vs. Wawasee.  Sign-up sheets are on the teachers’ lounge door.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  College basketball is getting close to tournament time, and one of the best mid-majors in the country, Illinois State, has relied on good defense while standing atop the Missouri Valley Conference, according to their coach Dan Muller.  Defense is important in all team sports.  It’s often been said that defense wins championships. Muller has been quoted as saying, “The key has been on defense. We aren’t afraid to call each other out if one of us gets beat.”  Defensive accountability is an important part of team success. When a teammate fails to do their part, there’s a right way to point out a weakness or slip up.  If you must call out a teammate, do so in a positive way.  It’s how you deliver the message that will either inspire your teammate or have a negative effect on the entire team!

The Goshen Band Boosters are hosting a shoe drive from February 10th through April 9th and would love your help! They’re collecting gently used or new shoes which are then taken to other countries such as Haiti and given to micro-entrepreneurs.  The entrepreneurs refurbish the shoes into usable ones or other items of use and sell them to earn an income to help themselves and their families.  Take a look in your closets or wherever you may keep your shoes and see if you have a pair or two that you would be willing to donate.  You can even donate flip flops.  Bins will be placed around the school (as well as the Goshen area) that have a poster on them with the dos and don’ts of what is an acceptable shoe.  If you would like more information, or have any questions please feel free to contact Kristy Nissley at nissley1998@gmail.com.  Thank you for your help!

Any girl who is interested in trying out for the GHS softball program needs to complete all athletic paper work before coming to open field workouts.  The open field schedule is posted on the Goshen Softball website.  Tryouts will officially begin on March 6th.  If you have any questions contact Coach Kulp.  We hope to see you there!  Go Hawks!
