IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  How do you respond as an athlete when things aren’t going well for you?  How do you act when you are demoted or you aren’t playing as much as you wish?  Are you still happy to be a part of the team, or do you put yourself first and continue to think that you deserve more than your coach is giving you?  Do you quit or stick it out?  While I know that it is very difficult to practice hard and give it your all, you can still be important to your team in a supporting role.  In life, you will be challenged with these same decisions when things aren’t going well.  Will you quit, or will you stick it out?  Those who stay involved for the long haul won’t win every battle, but having the right attitude and never quit persona will serve you much better than quitting!

GHS Art Teacher Wins National Awards

Congratulations to GHS Art teacher and independent artist Tom Zuber, upon being recognized for two 2017 American Art Awards! Mr. Zuber took 1st place in Abstract Expressionism and tied for 6th place in Cubism.

From an article on the American Art Awards in the Huffington Post:

This year the American Art Awards (www.AmericanArtAwards.com), juried by the 25 Best Galleries & Museums In America, had online art images in 50 CATEGORIES submitted from artists in 56 COUNTRIES: Albania, Argentina, Australia, Belarus, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, Egypt, England, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Malaysia, Mexico, Myanmar, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Pakistan, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, South Africa, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, UK, Ukraine, USA, Uzbekistan, Vietnam and Wales.

The 1st Place to 6th Place winners in all 50 categories will be revealed in the news about a category a day, stretching into November, making this one of the longest winner announcements of any art competition in the world.

A self-described creative, Thomas Zuber has been driven to ‘make stuff’ from an early age. From winning an American Bicentennial locker-art competition in the first grade to showcasing his latest feature-length film in local theaters, to exhibiting his paintings in museums, Zuber has indeed been creatively industrious.

After studying under painter Harold Zisla and sculptor Harold “Tuck” Langland, Zuber received his BA in Fine Arts, with a concentration in sculpture, from Indiana University, in 1991. In 1995, he was offered a teaching position in Bloomington, MN. There, Zuber learned the art of teaching as he instructed students in Studio Art and Art History. In 2002, he returned to the South Bend, IN area and continued to teach. During this period he resumed painting, and slowly began exhibiting and selling semi-abstract watercolor and acrylic paintings to private collectors. After completing his M.A. in Art Education through Boston University, Zuber returned to painting in earnest, working in Abstract Expressionist and Cubist styles. He currently exhibits in group shows, and has become a frequent award-winning artist through the Midwest Museum of American Art. As opportunities continue to grow, Zuber is becoming an emerging artist that will make his collection one to be envied.

Mr. Zuber’s entries:

GCS offers congratulations to Tom, and appreciation to all of the working/teaching artists who share their gifts with GHS students every day!

GHS Band Receives Donation from Walmart

Members of the Goshen High School band played the national anthem as part of the Grand Opening celebration for Walmart #1566. Because of rain, the ceremony was moved inside, so the drum line did not play. However, according to the public and officials in attendance, the band still sounded great, even without the drums.

Warming up:

 

Waiting.

Playing the national anthem.

And a surprise! Walmart donated $1,000 to the Goshen High School band.

After the ceremony, the kids put away their instruments and ate Grand Opening cupcakes.

A huge thank you to the students and directors for representing Goshen High School so well. And, a special thank you to Walmart for supporting GHS students; GCS appreciates your generosity!

Hispanic Heritage Month

Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.

The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15. It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988, on the approval of Public Law 100-402.

The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September18, respectively. Also, Columbus Day or Día de la Raza, which is October 12, falls within this 30 day period.

For resources to learn more about Hispanic Heritage Month, check out your school library or the Goshen Public Library.

At Goshen Community Schools, we celebrate our culturally rich educational environment, which inspires everyone to learn and grow.

A mural at Parkside.

The GHS cafeteria (pictured here during band camp), has flags around the perimeter that represent the countries of origin of GHS students. If a student enrolls from a country that is not yet represented with a flag, the principal orders a new one to represent the student’s country of origin. If you go into the cafeteria, you will see that the flags go almost all the way around the room. It is a very visible reminder of the rich diversity present in GHS students and in our schools.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  How do you respond as an athlete when things aren’t going well for you?  How do you act when you are demoted or you aren’t playing as much as you wish?  Are you still happy to be a part of the team, or do you put yourself first and continue to think that you deserve more than your coach is giving you?  Do you quit or stick it out?  While I know that it is very difficult to practice hard and give it your all, you can still be important to your team in a supporting role.  In life, you will be challenged with these same decisions when things aren’t going well.  Will you quit, or will you stick it out?  Those who stay involved for the long haul won’t win every battle, but having the right attitude and never quit persona will serve you much better than quitting!

Pay to see your favorite teacher get a pie in the face!  Put money in the vase with your teacher’s face on it at the homecoming table during lunch.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Today, more than ever, it’s so important for the student-athlete to understand what is expected of them, both in the classroom and field of play, and want to accomplish those expectations.  There are so many outside influences by personal trainers, tutors and parents.  How well do you analyze your teachers and coaches?  Do you know their expectations?  Are you flexible and try to fit in, or are you defiant and want to do things your way?  The student-athlete who truly understands what is expected of them has the greatest chance of achievement.  Instead of worrying about what’s best for you, think in a different way. Think about what you must do in order to impress your teachers and coaches, thus giving you a greater opportunity for success!

This week is Homecoming and below is a list of Spirit Week themes.  Please participate by dressing according to the theme.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  A wise coach once said that it’s just as tough to handle success as it is to handle failure.  One current star, professional golfer Jordan Spieth, seems to understand the importance of humility in the midst of his success.  When asked about the importance of humility in a recent Golf Digest article, Spieth replied by saying, “My speaking about humility is very difficult, because that wouldn’t be humility.”  A student-athlete who understands this lets other people do the talking about who’s good and who’s not.  Tooting your own horn can cause a problem bigger than a major traffic jam!
