GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 31, 2018

GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 31, 2018                              

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  When I watch or attend a big sporting event, I often wonder to myself what separates the winners from the losers.  Is it preparation?  Is it coaching?  Is it ability?  Whether it is a team sport, or competitors going at it in tennis or golf, when two teams or two individuals are of equal abilities on a given day, I believe the difference maker comes down to COMPOSURE.  When the going gets tough and the game or match is on the line, I will take the team or individual that shows the most composure every time.  While you won’t win every game or match, the percentages are with you more if you keep your composure and stay focused on the end result.  Next time you are in a tight contest or you are watching one on television, pay close attention to the teams and individuals who look composed and confident with their mind and body language.  More than likely, you are looking at the WINNER!

French Club will be selling Valentine’s Day teddy bears for $4 in the cafeteria the rest of this week!  Show someone (boyfriend, girlfriend, best friend, family member or teacher) that you appreciate them with a cozy bear.  Each bear will have a tag where you can write a message, and French Club will deliver all the bears during SRT on February 13th.

HELP WANTED:  Millersburg Animal Clinic is looking for a part time weekend and weekday evening worker.  You must be at least 16 years old and have a reliable transportation.  The job would entail cleaning, answering phones, scheduling appointments, walking and feeding dogs.  You would work 2-3 nights a week and every other Saturday and Sunday – Sunday only if there are boarding animals.  We are looking for someone who likes to work with animals, and that doesn’t already have a busy work schedule including extra-curricular activities.  We are located at 400 E. Elm St. in Millersburg.  If you are interested, please stop in and pick up an application.

The boys basketball team is on a roll with two big wins this past weekend!  The boys host Plymouth TOMORROW night with the JV starting at 6:15 p.m.  Come and support the boys as they go for their 5th win in the last six games against the Rockies!

Student Faculty Senate will meet TOMORROW at 7:45 a.m. in the media center.  All club sponsors should plan to attend and club members are encouraged to attend to update us on recent club activities.

Crimson Jazz Band Honored at Purdue Jazz Fest

Congratulations to the Crimson Jazz Ensemble, who received honors at the Purdue Jazz Festival.

From their director, Josh Kaufman: There are 120 groups that performed at the 2018 Purdue Jazz Festival.  They have 7-8 different performance locations with 15-18 groups performing in each location.  In each performance room, there are 3 judges who score each group on a rubric and also provide recorded comments. The Crimson Jazz Ensemble meets during school (3rd period) 3 times a week. It is the second jazz band at GHS, the younger and less experienced group. In the room that we performed in at the Purdue Jazz Fest, there were 15 groups that performed, mostly 2nd bands and also a couple first bands from smaller schools.In each performance location, they give awards to the top three placing bands.  The Crimson Jazz Ensemble received the highest score in their performance location, and therefore received the “Honor Band” distinction, or first place trophy. This is a first for Goshen.  It is the first time a Goshen groups has won the “Honor Band” distinction.

(At GHS, during their class period.)

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Winning in team sports requires constant practice to make sure that every player is in tune with what is best for the entire team.  This is very important, but believing this will transpire into victories is just as important.  Big Ten basketball leader Ohio State started the conference with eight straight wins, none more important than beating #1 Michigan State on the road.  OSU player Jae’Sean Tate spoke for his team after that big win.  “We all knew we could do it, and that’s where it all started.  You can’t go into a game against a team like Michigan State not believing that it’s possible to win.  I think that’s the biggest factor of us winning tonight, just the belief that we could do it.”  Preparation will help insure that you have a chance to win any game on any given night.  However, truly believing that you can win is what separates big wins from tough losses!

1-22-18 Board Recognition

 January 22, 2018 Board Recognition:

Angie Schmucker, an employee at Prairie View Elementary, was recognized for her selfless act on her way to work one morning. According to Prairie View, “Angie was flagged down on CR 40 on her drive in to work, to help at a house that was on fire. She actually helped to pull the people out of the fire after breaking windows and helping to break down a door. It turned out that it was the grandfather of one of our staff members that Angie rescued! Even though she couldn’t see because of all of the smoke, Angie made sure that everyone made it out safely. And she helped keep them warm in her car (including their dog) until the fire fighters arrived, and then was with them at the hospital.” Angie was given a standing ovation, and thanked by the whole board for her selfless act, and for demonstrating just how caring GCS employees are throughout the Goshen community.

Also recognized (in absentia) from Prairie View, Angie Bontrager. Angie “saw how disappointed one of our students was after he accidentally threw away a ring that was on his lunch tray. He was very upset. She didn’t have to, but Angie dug through three bags of lunch trash until she found the ring to return to the student.”

GHS choir teachers Katie O’Leary and Monica Stutzman and GMS accompanist Deanna Chupp were recognized for going “above and beyond” to support the choral program at GMS this past fall. They provided assistance, lesson plans, time, and strong support during the absence of a regular class teacher, and during the transition of a new teacher.

Also recognized by the board were three teachers who have been honored as the Boys and Girls Club Teachers of the Month. The teachers were nominated by GCS students who attend the Boys and Girls Club after school. Carrie Markham from West Goshen was honored in September, Jan Johnson from Chandler was honored in October, and Amber Gensinger from Chamberlain was honored in November.

Below, some of Jodi Miller’s 5th grade students from Model elementary presented an invitation to the school board and administrators, asking them to attend their New Tech Gala. The Gala will be held on Tuesday, January 30th, from 6:00-7:00 p.m. in the Model cafeteria, where they will showcase their recent project on reducing Goshen’s carbon footprint.

niche.com 2018 Best School Districts in Indiana

From niche.com 2018 Best School Districts in Indiana

According to Niche.com, the Goshen Community School district is ranked 30th in the state of Indiana! GCS is the top-ranked school district in Elkhart County, and the GCS district looks quite a bit different demographically than many of the schools ranked higher. This acknowledgement is something for GCS and all of the greater Goshen community to celebrate, as the schools, families, coaches, mentors, and community volunteers all work together to make Goshen schools great places to learn and grow.

Niche has a pretty good statistical way of ranking schools, which includes looking at academics, teacher expertise, activities and clubs, diversity, college preparation, and safety. In looking at the results, John Glenn and Penn are geographically the closest school districts ranked above GCS, and Warsaw is the only NLC school district that ranked higher than GCS.

The GCS administration would like to publicly express thanks to the teachers and staff members who work so hard to ensure that all of our schools provide a top-notch education, to students of all abilities. The staff’s commitment to excellence provides opportunities for students to explore many educational options and to move successfully toward their future plans.

To the students in Goshen schools, we thank you too. We thank you for investing your time and efforts in our schools; in athletic competitions, in music venues, in theater performances, and in the Goshen community. You are the reason we are here. We believe in you, and you make it all worthwhile!

GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR FRIDAY, JANUARY 19, 2018

GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR FRIDAY, JANUARY 19, 2018                               

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Join us TONIGHT in the GHS cafeteria for the annual Goshen Wrestling All-U-Can Eat Spaghetti Dinner from 5:00-7:30 p.m.  Tickets are $8 and can purchased at the door.

GHS Music Faculty will be presenting their annual faculty recital to raise money for student scholarships.  The recital will be held on Sunday, January 28th at 2:00 p.m. in the GHS auditorium.  The suggested donation for attendance is $6 for adults and $4 for students.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Alabama won the national championship in college football this past week, but the real story is about the two quarterbacks, Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa, and how they worked together to make it happen.  Hurts, who led Alabama to the final game as a freshman last season, and who has only lost two games as a two-year starter, was replaced at halftime (not because of injury) by the seldom used Tagovailoa.  To see Jalen Hurts on the sideline, still engaged and pulling for his team and his backup quarterback, was the inspirational story of the game.  Hurts didn’t pout, he didn’t sulk and he didn’t hang his head.  What he did was support his replacement, encouraged his teammates, and stayed engaged in the game.  Years from now Alabama fans will still be talking about the tremendous second half rally led by Tua Tagovailoa.  However, I will never forget seeing a star player standing on the sidelines, being replaced in the biggest game of the year, and how he responded with class, grace and humility!

The Laura A. Kindig Seminary Trust scholarship application is now available in the Guidance Office.  You must be majoring in nursing or medical related fields to apply.  Please see Guidance for more information.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Alabama won the national championship in college football this past week, but the real story is about the two quarterbacks, Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa, and how they worked together to make it happen.  Hurts, who led Alabama to the final game as a freshman last season, and who has only lost two games as a two-year starter, was replaced at halftime (not because of injury) by the seldom used Tagovailoa.  To see Jalen Hurts on the sideline, still engaged and pulling for his team and his backup quarterback, was the inspirational story of the game.  Hurts didn’t pout, he didn’t sulk and he didn’t hang his head.  What he did was support his replacement, encouraged his teammates, and stayed engaged in the game.  Years from now Alabama fans will still be talking about the tremendous second half rally led by Tua Tagovailoa.  However, I will never forget seeing a star player standing on the sidelines, being replaced in the biggest game of the year, and how he responded with class, grace and humility!
