GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR WEDNESDAY, MARCH 28, 2018

GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR WEDNESDAY, MARCH 28, 2018                              

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

**IF YOU NEED WORK PERMITS OVER SPRING BREAK, PLEASE GO TO THE ADMINISTRATION BUILDING ON PURL STREET**  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.  Please bring completed forms to the main office in the morning and they will be completed by the end of the school day.

Do you have a book to read over spring break?  If not, stop by the library today!

Seniors & Juniors Who Are Graduating Early:  If you still need to order a cap and gown you can visit their web site at www.highschool.herffjones.com to place an order.  Cap & Gown Delivery Day will be on Thursday, April 12th during SRT at the concession stand by the main gym.  Please plan to pick up items at this time.

All boys interested in playing basketball next year that are not in a spring sport need to see Coach Wohlford before they leave for Spring Break to get a spring workout schedule.

***HOMEWORK HELP IS CANCELED FOR THIS WEEK***  Homework help is available every Tuesday and Thursday in the media center from 3:45-5:00 p.m.  A bus will be available around 5:10 p.m. (5:20 p.m. on Tuesdays) if you need a ride home.  It will pick you up at the south end of circle drive by the flag pole.  This is a great opportunity if you just need a little extra time or even just a quiet place to do your homework at the end of the day.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  The NCAA Basketball Tournament is one of the most exciting sports events of the year.  This year’s surprising team is Loyola-Chicago.  They are advancing to the Final Four for the first time in over 50 years.  Their coach, Porter Moser, was asked how a small Division I school gets to the Final Four?  His response was emotional and very truthful.  “It’s an accumulation of a group that is resilient and tough and believes and invested……..this didn’t just happen two weeks ago, but it’s not one person, it’s not one player, it’s a collaboration of a lot of tough, high character people.”  The winning recipe for a championship team requires more than just athletic ability and individual skills.  It requires meshing all those unnoticed sacrifices to survive against the best of the best.  Like Coach Moser said, you can’t win on skill alone.  It’s a combination of all the little things (that are truly the big things) that leads teams to their greatest performance!

Goshen High School, Goshen Middle School and Goshen Health Systems will combine efforts again this spring to offer $20 athletic physical exams to all incoming 6th-12th grade students.  These physical exams will be performed by Goshen Health Systems health providers and will take place at Goshen Orthopedics and Rehabilitation Center off of CR 27 (Dierdorff Road) in Goshen.  The event will take place from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Monday, April 16th.  Appointments for the exams and payments must be made in advance.  You may sign up in the athletic offices at the GHS and the GMS.  Payments of $20 and physical forms should be brought along when making your appointment.  If we don’t fill all the spots, walk-ins will be allowed at the end of the evening.  For Goshen High School students, parents should contact Mrs. Jan Schrock at jschrock@goshenschools.org or call 533-0652 to make an appointment.  For Goshen Middle School students, parents should contact Mrs. Sue Egli at segli@goshenschools.org or call 534-6436.  It is very important that parents complete the health historical page in detail before the students can begin the physical exam process.  Forms can be picked up at the GMS or GHS athletic offices or found online at goshenredhawks.org under the More tab.  The money collected from this event is used to pay for GHS training room supplies and a scholarship for a training student.  However, no student will be turned away for price.  Please let Mrs. Schrock or Mrs. Egli know of your need when you make your appointment.

Key Club will be collecting personal care items for the Parent Comfort Cart at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis from April 9th-13th.  Staff and students who are traveling over Spring Break are encouraged to bring their unused, travel-sized soap, shampoo and conditioner to the Guidance Office for donation.  Other acceptable items include travel-size deodorant, lotion, shaving cream, toothpaste, mouthwash and contact lens solution.  Key Club appreciates your support of Riley Hospital!

REMINDER:  The recycling bins (the ones with black lids with small holes) around the school are to be used for recycling only.  These are NOT regular trash cans.  Thank you in advance for placing things where they are supposed to go.

It is that time of year again for the annual GHS Prom Dress Drive!  The purpose of this drive is to provide free dresses for students who want to go to the prom but may be in financial need.  We have several dresses in various styles and sizes to choose from.  If you are in need of a prom dress or if you wish to donate a gently used dress, please contact Mrs. Hershberger or Mrs. Shakley.  You may also ask your SRT teacher for more information.

Don’t miss the Talent Show on Friday, April 13th from 7:00-9:00 p.m.

Recycle Caps-to-Benches Update:

  • Reminder: This is the last week!  All plastic caps/lids must be turned in before Spring Break to be counted towards the competition!  The winning SRT has their choice of pizza or homemade cinnamon rolls.
  • A shout out to the TOP FIVE SRTs currently (in no particular order): Mr. Brubaker, Mr. Caskey, Mr. Clark, Mr. Smuts, and Mrs. Wertz.  Many other SRTs in the running so everybody keep donating.
  • We have a little over 200 pounds so far…. We need 400 pounds for a bench.  Even after Spring Break we will be collecting the caps/lids.
  • Please be sure the plastic caps/lids are clean & dry.

REMINDER:  YOU MUST BE STAYING AFTER SCHOOL FOR SOMETHING TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS – The GHS cafeteria is offering free after school snacks every day after school.  This program is for any student who is staying after school.  All student-athletes, club members, music participants, drama participants, after school homework help kids, etc. are strongly encouraged to stop by the cafeteria after school and take advantage of this generous opportunity.  Students just need to show their ID and they can grab a healthy snack to go that will hold them over during their after school activities until dinner.  The cafeteria will stay open until 3:55 p.m. to hand out the snacks.  All students picking up the healthy snack after school will need to eat their snack in the cafeteria.  We appreciate your cooperation with this adjustment that is mandated by the state of Indiana in order to continue this program.

If you are a student that leaves the building at any time during normal school hours then you must have a sticker on your ID if it’s for a class (PACT, Building Trades, EACC, Merit, shortened schedules, Red Zone, internship, yearbook, etc.) that indicates that or a blue pass from the office indicating that you have permission to leave.  Building Trades, EACC and Red Zone students are also required to sign out at the Welcome Center before leaving.

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.  Please bring completed forms to the main office in the morning and they will be completed by the end of the school day.

Online yearbook sales are set up!  All you have to do is go to www.yearbookordercenter.com and enter our school code (14723) to order your yearbook or yearbook ad.

Just a reminder that if you are coming to see Ms. Tovar you need to check in with the staff in the main office and fill out a request to see her.  She will send a white pass for you as she has time.  Please do not cut through the nurse’s office to get to her.  You need to enter through the main office.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Have you ever been in a game where your team was the prohibitive underdog and you came out victorious?  If you play sports long enough, I’m sure that you will experience both the pleasure of winning in that situation, and the agony of losing when it should never happen.  This past week the number one seed in the men’s NCAA Tournament, the Virginia Cavaliers, lost unexpectedly to 20-point underdog UMBC.  Virginia coach Tony Bennett offered a humble response when he said, “If you play this game and you step into the arena, this stuff can happen, and maybe those who haven’t been in the arena or in competition, maybe they don’t understand that.”  Being able to handle winning and losing with the same humility is a great trait to strive for.  Coach Bennett made no excuses and congratulated his opponent without hesitation.  As a student-athlete, you are in that arena, regardless of your sport.  At the end, be humble with the result by showing your opponent that you understand that on any given day, either side can win or lose that particular game or event!

Don’t miss the Talent Show on Friday, April 13th from 7:00-9:00 p.m.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Troy Lewis, a former Indiana Mr. Basketball, was quoted in the Indianapolis Star this past week talking about the importance of never taking any game for granted or blaming a coach for a loss during the NCAA basketball tournament.  “No lead is ever safe. At the end of the day, it’s all about execution. That’s why I never, ever, blame the coaches for anything because I know as a player, I had the control.” (Lewis has been an assistant high school coach the last six years)  I encourage all high school student-athletes to take the same approach.  Too many times, regardless of the sport, players, parents, and the general fan base would rather blame the coach for a tough loss during the tournament run instead of holding the athletes accountable, as well.  While great coaches may have some influence in those tough games, it’s really the players that determine the outcome.  Don’t be afraid to hold yourself accountable, win or lose.  It’s the right thing to do!

The date for GHS’s FAFSA Help Night has been moved.  The new date is Tuesday, March 20th from 6:00-8:00 p.m. in the GHS Media Center.  This is an opportunity to get help completing your FAFSA for next year.  Stop in Guidance to get a checklist of what documents you need to bring in order to complete the application.

Homework help is available every Tuesday and Thursday in the media center from 3:45-5:00 p.m.  A bus will be available around 5:10 p.m. (5:20 p.m. on Tuesdays) if you need a ride home.  It will pick you up at the south end of circle drive by the flag pole.  This is a great opportunity if you just need a little extra time or even just a quiet place to do your homework at the end of the day.

Attention Graduates: The GHS Chapter of Dollars for Scholars has over $50,000 to award to those GHS students graduating in June.  If you have a GPA of 2.5 or higher and are planning to further your education in the fall, please consider applying.  Contact Lindsey Kroening in Guidance for hard copy instructions on how to apply online.  The process takes time to complete so start now!  The deadline is Wednesday, April 11th.

REMINDER:  YOU MUST BE STAYING AFTER SCHOOL FOR SOMETHING TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS – The GHS cafeteria is offering free after school snacks every day after school.  This program is for any student who is staying after school.  All student-athletes, club members, music participants, drama participants, after school homework help kids, etc. are strongly encouraged to stop by the cafeteria after school and take advantage of this generous opportunity.  Students just need to show their ID and they can grab a healthy snack to go that will hold them over during their after school activities until dinner.  The cafeteria will stay open until 3:55 p.m. to hand out the snacks.  All students picking up the healthy snack after school will need to eat their snack in the cafeteria.  We appreciate your cooperation with this adjustment that is mandated by the state of Indiana in order to continue this program.

If you are a student that leaves the building at any time during normal school hours then you must have a sticker on your ID if it’s for a class (PACT, Building Trades, EACC, Merit, shortened schedules, Red Zone, internship, etc.) that indicates that or a blue pass from the office indicating that you have permission to leave.  Building Trades, EACC and Red Zone students are also required to sign out at the Welcome Center before leaving.

Homework help is available every Tuesday and Thursday in the media center from 3:45-5:00 p.m.  A bus will be available around 5:10 p.m. (5:20 p.m. on Tuesdays) if you need a ride home.  It will pick you up at the south end of circle drive by the flag pole.  This is a great opportunity if you just need a little extra time or even just a quiet place to do your homework at the end of the day.

REMINDER:  YOU MUST BE STAYING AFTER SCHOOL FOR SOMETHING TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS – The GHS cafeteria is offering free after school snacks every day after school.  This program is for any student who is staying after school.  All student-athletes, club members, music participants, drama participants, after school homework help kids, etc. are strongly encouraged to stop by the cafeteria after school and take advantage of this generous opportunity.  Students just need to show their ID and they can grab a healthy snack to go that will hold them over during their after school activities until dinner.  The cafeteria will stay open until 3:55 p.m. to hand out the snacks.  All students picking up the healthy snack after school will need to eat their snack in the cafeteria.  We appreciate your cooperation with this adjustment that is mandated by the state of Indiana in order to continue this program.

If you are a student that leaves the building at any time during normal school hours then you must have a sticker on your ID if it’s for a class (PACT, Building Trades, EACC, Merit, shortened schedules, Red Zone, internship, etc.) that indicates that or a blue pass from the office indicating that you have permission to leave.  Building Trades, EACC and Red Zone students are also required to sign out at the Welcome Center before leaving.

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.  Please bring completed forms to the main office in the morning and they will be completed by the end of the school day.

Online yearbook sales are set up!  All you have to do is go to www.yearbookordercenter.com and enter our school code (14723) to order your yearbook or yearbook ad.

Just a reminder that if you are coming to see Ms. Tovar you need to check in with the staff in the main office and fill out a request to see her.  She will send a white pass for you as she has time.  Please do not cut through the nurse’s office to get to her.  You need to enter through the main office.

3/10/18 Statement from GCS

Statement from Goshen Community Schools and Goshen Police Department

3/10/18

Late Friday afternoon, school and police department officials became aware of statements of concern written on a note and left in a girls’ bathroom at GHS. This is being investigated further, but as an extra precaution, it has been decided to have additional police presence at GHS next week. Authorities do not believe that this is a credible threat, however, as always, and in keeping with our tradition of transparency, we wanted to make the community aware of this situation.

Rest assured, the school district and law enforcement officials always work together to ensure the safety of all students and staff, and will continue to be diligent in our efforts to do so.

Thank you to the entire community for partnering with us for the safety and well-being of every Goshen resident.

Por la tarde de viernes, oficiales de la escuela y el departamento de policía se dieron cuenta de declaraciones de preocupación escritas en una nota y puestas en el baño de las mujeres en la preparatoria de Goshen. Esto está bajo investigación, pero como precaución adicional, se ha decidido tener la presencia de más policías en la escuela en la próxima semana. Las autoridades no creen que esto es una amenaza creíble, sin embargo, como siempre y de acuerdo con nuestra tradición de transparencia, queríamos informarle a la comunidad sobre esta situación.

Este seguro, los oficiales escolares y los oficiales de la ley siempre trabajamos juntos para garantizar la seguridad de todos los estudiantes y personal, y seguiremos siendo diligentes en nuestro esfuerzo por hacerlo.  

Gracias a toda la comunidad por unirse con nosotros por la seguridad y el bienestar de todos los residentes de Goshen.
