GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR FRIDAY, MAY 26, 2017                                

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Have a great summer……we will see you in August!

WORK PERMITS:  When you get a work permit EVERY box needs to be filled out on the Intent to Employ form before we will issue you the work permit.  If you are getting one over summer break, please refer to the sign posted at door M as to what our summer hours are.

If you still need to pick up your graduation tickets see Mrs. Stealy or Miss Huicochea in the main office.

In addition to all the summer athletic opportunities offered by our coaching staff, the GHS athletic department will again offer PiYo every Wednesday starting May 31st through June 28th from 10:30-11:30 a.m. in the warehouse.  All perspective student-athletes and GHS staff are welcome to take advantage of this awesome one hour workout that focus on balance and core work.

If you need a summer opportunity calendar for your sport, see Mr. Kissinger in the athletic office or check the GHS website for your sport!

All seniors and juniors graduating early must attend graduation practice on the last day of school. The practice is TODAY at 2:30 p.m. in the main gym.  You do not need to wear your cap and gown – just come to the main gym at that time.  Seniors not graduating or not planning to walk at graduation will remain in their SRT room at that time.

Reminder for Graduates of 2017:  Your school Gmail account will be closed soon after graduation…..probably by August.  If you want to save any files out of your Google Drive or Gmail you will need to copy or move those before August.

Seniors:  If you ordered items and missed the cap & gown delivery day, please e-mail Mrs. Gardner to make arrangements to pick up your items.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Every high school student-athlete faces challenges–in the classroom, in their sport, and even at home.  It seems like there is always an obstacle to overcome.  Research is clear that it really does pay to be positive during difficult times.  The benefits include enhanced health and longevity, happiness, career advancement, and athletic performance.  Writer Jon Gordon says that “positive people who regularly express positive emotions are more resilient when facing stress, challenges and adversity.”  How can you become a more positive person?  Tasting success in the classroom and on the athletic field will help, but should not be the determining factor.  Try and make each day positive not only for you, but for someone else, as well!

Seniors: If you are going to college this fall and have not filled out a green sheet that was passed around during M & M day, please stop in the guidance office to let them know what school they should send your final transcript to.  Please also let guidance know if you have received any scholarships.  Thank you!

If you are enrolled in summer school and need bussing, please contact transportation to make arrangements at 533-7176.

Juniors:  Don’t forget to turn in your consent form if you are planning to take part in the Work Ethic Certification program during your senior year.  Forms are available in the main office with Mrs. Wolfe.

The Elkhart County 4-H Fair will host Education Day on Friday, July 21st. On Education Day, all students can get into the 4-H Fair at no cost until 3:00 p.m. by just showing your 2016-17 school ID!  College students are also included in the promotion.  Students must enter at the main gate.

IB Reception

Dr. Younghans welcomed the IB diploma candidates and their families, and thanked the students for all of their hard work.

Mr. Scott Garvin, IB English teacher, was the faculty speaker. He spoke with his usual humor, but challenged the students to think about the decisions they make now, and in the future. Highlights from his charge to the graduates included: “Some decisions impact your immediate circumstances, but some decisions can impact your whole lives, so choose carefully; Through your CAS hours you have had a great impact on our society; You know how to find your purpose; It is time for you to decide what comes next; You are capable of making your own decisions. We know it too, and we trust you; You are responsible for figuring out what you want to do and then to go and do it.”

Mrs. Theresa Collins and Mr. Carl Weaver, TOK teachers, also thanked the students for their hard work. “We are so proud of you, and you should be proud of yourselves. You’ve all reached the goal!” They also thanked the families in attendance, as they noted that the IB workload can be stressful, and the students need family support. They added that “The IB experience has prepared you well for what is to come. You have learned leadership through your CAS activities…Through the traits you have learned in the Learner Profile, you should all be reflective. You should what you have learned about yourself, and you should continue to strive for a growth mindset. Use these experiences as stepping stones for the next chapter in your lives.”

Next, Mrs. Collins and Mr. Weaver awarded the IB stoles.

 

And then the IB lamp was passed from the class of 2017 to a member of the class of 2018.

The class of 2017 shared about their CAS project over the last two years, in collaboration with students from an IB school in  Flint, Michigan.

And then the students were presented to their families, GHS faculty, administrators, and board members as the 2017 IB Diploma Candidates.

Mrs. Collins had prepared a gift for each IB candidate with this: “It’s not what the world holds for you. It’s what you bring to it.” (Anne Shirley)

Congratulations, IB diploma candidates. Great job!

Senior Walk at GMS

The retirees (Mrs. Cook and Mrs. Reihl) made their own signs!

Mr. Mault led them through the school, letting everyone know the seniors were headed their way.

Students held signs of congratulations, and put out their hands for high-fives.

More signs of encouragement from teachers and students.

They walked through the cafeteria.

They took one more walk through “Fish” hallway.

They walked through a GHS presentation in the auditorium.

With plenty of smiles, high-fives, the sound of Mr. Mault’s trumpet, and just a few tears, Goshen Middle School offered a well-deserved show of appreciation for the seniors.

Congratulations to you, seniors! Thank you for encouraging the next generation of Goshen High School students!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Are you looking forward to the end of the school year?  Are you still applying yourself in the classroom?  Are your grades where they need to be? Are you making excuses for any shortcomings or failures?  This is the time of year where it’s very easy to lose concentration on your academic and athletic prowess.  In fact, the following statement from an NBA coach really applies to this last month of school, especially if you are struggling, somewhat.  “You have a choice. You can give in, you can give up, or you can give it your all.”  Make the most of this last month of school.  Give it your best.  While this quote was spoken in a locker room, it applies as well to the student-athlete putting the final touches on the end of another school year.  Give it your all!

MasterBrand Cabinets will be at the Elkhart County Job & Internship Fair on May 16th from 8:00 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. at the RV/MH Hall of Fame.  Graduating seniors are invited to attend!

Are you making excuses for any shortcomings or failures?  This is the time of year where it’s very easy to lose concentration on your academic and athletic prowess.  In fact, the following statement from an NBA coach really applies to this last month of school, especially if you are struggling, somewhat.  “You have a choice. You can give in, you can give up, or you can give it your all.”  Make the most of this last month of school.  Give it your best.  While this quote was spoken in a locker room, it applies as well to the student-athlete putting the final touches on the end of another school year.  Give it your all!
