Information From the Career Center Website:

The Elkhart Area Career Center (EACC) first opened for the 1971-72 school year with 18 sending school partners.  Original programming included:  secretarial skills, clerical skills, auto body and auto mechanics, building trades, technical drafting, electronics, graphic arts and advance printing, welding, health occupations, commercial sewing, food service, horticulture, radio and television, and audio-visual technology.

The EACC’s ability to adjust programming needs to serve employment trends has been a strength over its decades of service.  An Early Childhood Education program was launched for the 1987-88 school year.  Student interest in public safety led to the launch of a Law Enforcement program for the 1993-94 school year and five years later a Firefighting program was started.  One of the original areas of programming, health occupations, has grown over the years as local needs have changed.  A nursing assistant program was started prior to the 1990-91 school year and within 5 years staffing in health occupations grew to three instructors and programming was increased to offer second year training and dental instruction. Computer Programming was first offered for the 1977-78 school year and courses related to applications and networking have been introduced to respond to changing needs within the field.  The introduction of the computer in drafting compelled the EACC to begin offering CAD courses prior to the 1999-2000 school year.  

The changes in programming, enhancement of curriculum, and additional space have all been implemented in an effort to support the EACC’s initial vision of offering instruction to anyone in the region that wished to learn about the “world of work.”  EACC has continued to communicate with business partners and monitor employment trends to ensure programming not only benefits the Elkhart community, but position students to pursue career interests with the needed training to be successful.

LoveWay is looking for volunteers!  LoveWay provides therapeutic equestrian programs for people with special needs.  Our volunteers help as Horse Leaders and Side Walkers in our classes and summer camps, and with morning and afternoon feeding, weeding and brush trimming, office projects, photography and technology—mornings, afternoons and some evenings.  LoveWay’s 29-acre center is located between Bristol and Middlebury, with an indoor arena, outdoor arena, outdoor riding trails and about 20 horses.  For more information about volunteering now or this summer, or doing community service hours for National Honor Society or class requirements, contact volunteer@lovewayinc.org, call 574-825-5666 or visit www.lovewayinc.org.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Please stop by the commons area (either by the cafeteria or outside the main office) during lunch if you are interested is speaking to the following:

GHS Alternate Schedule/Testing Days (April 24-27)

ATTENTION: IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL PARENTS/GUARDIANS OF GHS STUDENTS

On April 24th, 25th, 26th and 27th, some students at Goshen High School will be taking required state ISTEP and ECA tests. Because only selected students must take the exam, the rest of the students will participate in online learning partial days. This means that all students who are testing should arrive at their normal time. All other students do not have to arrive at GHS until 10:45 a.m. However, all students not testing will have assignments that need to be completed on their computer. These late start online learning days only apply to students who are not testing. If you are not certain if your child needs to participate in either test, please contact Goshen High School at 533-8651 or have them check with their SRT teacher, Guidance or the main office.

If your child rides a bus, the buses will run at the normal times. Students who are not testing will be allowed to work on the online assignment or other homework in the cafeteria. There will be no delayed buses those mornings. Again, if students choose not to arrive until 10:45 a.m., they will be responsible for their own transportation.

The reasons for these alternate schedules are to provide an excellent testing environment as well as to determine how Goshen High School might be able to use online learning days in the 2018-2019 school year when weather makes attendance at school impossible. Please feel free to contact the principal or any of the assistant principals. Their email addresses are found below. Thank you for your cooperation regarding the change in schedule on these days.

ATENCIÓN: INFORMACIÓN IMPORTANTE PARA TODOS LOS PADRES DE FAMILIA O TUTORES DE ESTUDIANTES DE GOSHEN HIGH SCHOOL

El 24, 25, 26 y 27 de abril, algunos estudiantes de la preparatoria Goshen High School harán los exámenes estatales requeridos ISTEP y ECA. Debido a que sólo los estudiantes seleccionados deben tomar el examen, el resto de los estudiantes tomarán clases en línea en días parciales. Esto significa que, todos los estudiantes que vayan a hacer el examen deben llegar en su horario normal. El resto de los estudiantes no tienen que llegar a GHS sino hasta las 10:45 a.m. Sin embargo, todos estos estudiantes que no hagan los exámenes tendrán que terminar sus tareas en su computadora. Estos días de entrada tarde, en donde los estudiantes tomarán clases en línea, solamente son para aquellos estudiantes que no harán los exámenes. Si usted no está seguro si su hijo tiene que hacer alguno de los exámenes, comuníquese a Goshen High School al 533-8651 o pídale que revise con el profesor de SRT, con el orientador escolar o en la dirección principal.

Si su hijo toma el autobús escolar, los autobuses saldrán a la hora normal. A los estudiantes que no tienen que hacer los exámenes, se les permitirá hacer su tarea en línea o cualquier otra tarea en la cafetería. Los autobuses no darán servicio más tarde esas mañanas. De nuevo, si los estudiantes prefieren llegar hasta las 10:45 a.m., tendrán que responsabilizarse por su propio transporte.

Las razones de estos horarios alternativos son las de proporcionar un excelente entorno para realizar evaluaciones, así como determinar cómo Goshen High School podría hacer funcionar las clases en línea en el año escolar 2018-2019, cuando el clima haga que el asistir a la escuela sea imposible. Por favor, no dude en ponerse en contacto conmigo o con cualquiera de los subdirectores. Nuestras direcciones de correo electrónico se encuentran a continuación. Gracias por su cooperación con respecto al cambio de horario en estos días.
