GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR MONDAY, APRIL 30, 2018

The unified track & field team will host the 2nd Annual Goshen Invitational this Friday night at 5:30 p.m.  Come on out and cheer on the RedHawks at beautiful Foreman Field.

Student Faculty Senate will have their last meeting of the school year this Thursday, May 3rd at 7:45 a.m. in the media center.  All club sponsors are expected to attend and club members are encouraged to attend.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  This past weekend the NFL held their annual draft. Two of the first three picks were quarterbacks and over 200 college players were selected for the opportunity to play on Sundays.  However, it was the quote from the 3rd player taken, by the New York Jets, that caught my attention.  Sam Darnold, the quarterback out of the University of Southern California, had the classiest comment after his name was called.  Upon leaving the stage after his selection, Darnold said, “Whatever the coaches want me to do, whether they want me to sit or want me to play, I want to star in my role.”  In this day of self-promoting athletes, it’s great to see that this up and coming professional player has the proper outlook.  High school student-athletes need more role models that they can look up to and emulate.  Let’s hope more athletes at all levels share Darnold’s philosophy and star in their role!

Congratulations to the GHS Wind Ensemble for qualifying for the ISSMA State Concert Band Finals this past Saturday!  The band will play at 1:00 p.m. at Lawrence Central High School.  We are proud to be among the finest concert bands in the state of Indiana!

Congratulations to the Symphonic Orchestra for their Gold with Distinction at ISSMA State Qualifications this past weekend!  They will be one of eight orchestras performing at the state finals this Saturday.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Sometimes off-season workouts can become boring and monotonous.  With summer approaching, have you given any thought as to how you will approach your training and conditioning while not being in school?  Call it the buddy system if you wish, but working out with a teammate, brother or sister, or an up and coming underclassman, makes the time go faster and the hard work seem easier.  So whether it’s heading to the gym for individual workouts, or out running for conditioning, or heading to the weight room for your weight training, try to find someone with similar goals to workout with you.  By finding that right person, you can hold each other accountable and reach your full potential while still having fun and trying to make each other better!

If you are a current junior, and have an interest in politics and our community, you should consider running for the Goshen City Council Youth Advisor position.  The election is open to any junior and will be held May 22nd at GHS.  If you have any questions please see Mr. Weldy in 2360 or talk to Jason Barahona.  All interested candidates can pick up an information packet from Mr. Weldy.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Sometimes off-season workouts can become boring and monotonous.  With summer approaching, have you given any thought as to how you will approach your training and conditioning while not being in school?  Call it the buddy system if you wish, but working out with a teammate, brother or sister, or an up and coming underclassman, makes the time go faster and the hard work seem easier.  So whether it’s heading to the gym for individual workouts, or out running for conditioning, or heading to the weight room for your weight training, try to find someone with similar goals to workout with you.  By finding that right person, you can hold each other accountable and reach your full potential while still having fun and trying to make each other better!

If you are a current junior, and have an interest in politics and our community, you should consider running for the Goshen City Council Youth Advisor position.  The election is open to any junior and will be held May 22nd at GHS.  If you have any questions please see Mr. Weldy in 2360 or talk to Jason Barahona.  All interested candidates can pick up an information packet from Mr. Weldy.

The students who worked on the logos were:  Manny Castillo, Iyla Stoy, Ariel Thomas (pictured) and Alexis Ramos and Austin Bontrager (who were unable to attend).

GMS student Matthew Snyder was also recognized following his win in a chess competition where he was outranked, but still managed to defeat his opponents in all four of his matches.

Prairie View teacher Kelsey Ambrosen and some of her P.V. students were honored after she and one of her students received Little Big Ideas Grants worth $1,000. Kelsey’s grant was based on a book that encourages book scavenger hunts in your community, and  Elisha Rauch’s grant was for the development of a sports podcast.

Don’t look back next year (whether you are a senior or underclass man) and say if my grades were better last year I could be attending the college of my choice!

Live feed of GHS Calf now available

This week, the Engineering Technology classes at GHS began working with a sweet little soon-to-be-named Hereford calf who was born on Friday, April 13th. The calf is a Dwarf, bred purposely to be miniature. But she was also born with birth defects, namely, she only has one digit per foot, and her back legs are different lengths and deformed. Her front legs are strong, but due to her back leg deformities, she is unable to walk on her own.  Her owners, Don and Nancy Shaum did not want to put her down, so they enlisted the help of Jen Yoder, and her Tech. Ed. classes at Goshen High School.

Mrs. Yoder has been bottle feeding the young calf and taking her back and forth to school with her each day, while her students work to plan and develop a prosthetic or trainer device to help the calf stand and walk.  They are also currently working on a sling solution to assist with feeding.

There will be several opportunities for collaborative work with the calf, including: Working with GHS science teacher Cathy DeMeyer’s classes to study the calf with regard to its biology and genetics; and Mrs. Yoder has also invited Fairfield High School’s Vet. Tech. class to be involved in studying the calf and offering input for her care.

As you can imagine, GHS students and staff are very excited about this project! If you would like to follow along with the students as they work to make this calf’s life a little easier, you may follow @GHSEngineerTech on Twitter. If you are interested, you may also check in on the calf while she is at GHS. There will be a webcam on her from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. during the school day.

GHS is thankful to Don and Nancy Shaum for the opportunity for our students to work on this unique, real-world problem; especially when the subject is just so adorable! When the solution has been found for the calf’s mobility issues and she is able to stand and walk with the new device(s), she will return to the Shaum family where she will remain in their care as a beloved family pet

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 or see Mrs. Gardner as she has some on hand.  You will need $60 cash to purchase one of these from Mrs. Gardner. If you only need a tassel, you will need $10 cash. Please have exact change. If you missed delivery day and still need to pick up your items, please stop by room 2290 and pick up your items from Mrs. Gardner.  If you have already graduated, are a Merit student or your parents are coming in to pick up your items it is easier if you e-mail Mrs. Gardner (rgardner@goshenschools.org) ahead of time so she can have your stuff waiting at the welcome center for you.

GHS Tech. Ed. Classes Take on a Special Project

  

This sweet little yet-to-be-named Hereford calf is only three days old. She was born with Dwarfism and birth defects, including having only one digit per foot. Her owners, Don and Nancy Shaum did not have the heart to put her down, so they enlisted the help of the engineering technology classes at Goshen High School.

The technology teacher, Jen Yoder, is no stranger to animals and she does not shy away from a challenge. Mrs. Yoder plans to bottle feed the young calf and take her back and forth to school with her each day, while her students work to develop a prosthetic or trainer device to help the calf stand and walk.

Mrs. Yoder said that there will be several opportunities for collaborative work with the calf, including: Working with GHS science teacher Cathy DeMeyer’s classes to study the calf with regard to its biology and genetics; and Mrs. Yoder will also invite Fairfield High School’s Vet. Tech. class to be involved in studying the calf and offering input for her care.

As you can imagine, everyone is very excited about this project! We will periodically post updates on the developments of this project. If you would like to follow along, you may follow @GHSEngineerTech on Twitter.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  There were many interesting stories coming out of Augusta National last week during the playing of golf’s most prestigious tournament, the 2018 Masters.  Patrick Reed was the winner, with Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth finishing 2nd and 3rd.  However, it’s what Spieth said after his round that really surprised me.  He said he played the entire day without ever looking at the scoreboard.  He played for over five hours without knowing how anyone else was scoring, but himself.  This process is somewhat common in individual sports.  Players this past week said over and over that they only focused on their own game and what they could control.  No need worrying about the opponent.  In team sports the participants are constantly looking at the time and score.  Strategy and game plans depend on those circumstances.  However, professional golfers and others that play individual sports will tell you there’s no need to worry about the opponent and what they are doing.  They will tell you to concentrate on the things that you can control, and don’t worry about the others!

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.

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:  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.

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.

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.

GHS Life Skills Prom

The annual Life Skills Prom was held at Goshen High School today. This year’s theme was Under the Sea.

GHS student council members, led by their sponsor Jaimie Pierce, assisted with decorating, serving lunch, and making sure everyone had a good time. Students from GHS, Northridge, Fairfield, Concord, and the Young Adult Program came to the prom dressed up and ready to dance!

Below, neighboring schools were welcomed to the prom by student council members.

The DJ from Epic Events kept things moving with some great music.

Many guests danced while other students were still arriving

As the host, GHS teacher Shane Mullett welcomed everyone, and provided instructions for lunch.

And then the student council members served lunch to the guests.

  

One student had a birthday, so they celebrated by inviting her to lead the conga line.

The Chicken Dance.

YMCA

And more dancing.

The day looked like a big success, with smiles all around!

In speaking with a Nikki Stump who has been substitute teaching in one of the classrooms, this is what she had to say: “The best part about Goshen High School is that the students treat the students with special needs just like everyone else. In fact, they embrace them and look out for them. This is a really caring school.”

A huge thank you to the teachers, sponsors, and students who helped to make this a very special day. Until next year…
