Can you re-create this kind of scene in your community?

We want to see every fun, quirky, creative, zany, goofy, hilarious, gut-busting, heartwarming, momentous, energizing, powerful idea you have.

You can apply anytime, and it’s super easy! Click here for the online application.

We can’t wait to see what you have in store!

There are bike racks available, and they should be used. Thank you for your cooperation with this! Bajo ninguna circunstancia se permite que se aseguren las bicicletas a ninguna reja o puerta de sea propiedad de la escuela.

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 3:50 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.

GHS Junior Chosen for IDOE Student Advisory Council

Congratulations to GHS junior Joseph Narayan, who was chosen to be a member of Indiana Department of Education’s Student Advisory Council. Joseph will serve a two-year term on the council.

The Advisory Council is composed of one student from each of Indiana’s nine congressional districts, plus two at-large members. They will be invited to the Indiana Statehouse once per semester during their junior and senior years. The meetings will last approximately two hours, and dates will be decided at the beginning of each semester.

The purpose of the council is to provide a forum for high school students to participate in meaningful discussions about educational matters impacting the local, state, and national level. Students on the Advisory Council provide valuable stakeholder input for the IDOE. Their first meeting will be on October 30.

Congratulations, Joseph. Thank you for representing Goshen High School!

10-12-18 Press Release and Parent Letter (Spanish and English)

10-12-18 PRESS RELEASE

Text Messages Shared with Local Authorities

On October 11, 2018, Goshen Community Schools leadership was made aware of texts that were sent from a paraprofessional at the high school to one of the students.  Since the content of the texts was inconsistent with policy, the district immediately placed the employee on a leave of absence and contacted law enforcement to review and investigate the messages.

“Our priority is always the wellbeing of our students,” stated Dr. Diane Woodworth, Superintendent of Schools.  “In today’s world, we work closely with our local authorities when an issue like this arises.  In addition, we provide additional support and counseling for any students if it is needed.”

District officials noted that since this is an active investigation by law enforcement, all further questions should be directed to the local authorities. If anyone has additional information of concern regarding this incident, the Goshen Police Department should be contacted.  If individuals have academic or school questions, they should not hesitate to call the Superintendent’s office or contact their building principal.

“We will conduct our own internal investigation to ensure that district policies are followed with regard to the paraprofessional,” noted Superintendent Woodworth.  “If at any point parents have concerns around text messages or inappropriate use of social media by any member of our staff, we ask that you share those concerns with our district leadership.”

Goshen Community Schools is committed to reminding all employees about the importance of using text messages and technology appropriately and professionally.  In addition, the district will continue to provide orientations and professional development activities that help employees understand both the dangers of technology and how to engage it appropriately.

Superintendent Woodworth emphasized the year is off to a great start, “In spite of this unusual situation, we are off to a great 2018-19 school year.  I am so impressed with how our students strive for excellence in all that they do. Truly, our students and alumni are enriching the world, both locally and globally.”

Hispanic Heritage Month

During National Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 to October 15) we recognize the contributions made and the important presence of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States and celebrate their heritage and culture.

Hispanic people have had a profound and positive influence on our country through their strong commitment to family, faith, hard work, and service. They have enhanced and shaped our national character with centuries-old traditions that reflect the multi-ethnic and multicultural customs of their community.

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. Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15, which is the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico, Chile and Belize also celebrate their independence days during this period and Columbus Day (Día de la Raza) is October 12.

The term Hispanic or Latino, refers to Puerto Rican, South or Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin regardless of race. Today, 57.5 million people or 18% of the American population are of Hispanic or Latino origin. This represents a significant increase from 2000, which registered the Hispanic population at 35.3 million or 13% of the total U.S. population.

Please share with GCS in this special annual tribute by learning and celebrating the generations of Hispanic and Latino Americans who have positively influenced and enriched our nation and society.

New GCS Video Feature, the “Superintendent Step In”

Goshen Community Schools Superintendent Dr. Diane Woodworth, Webmaster Megan Eichorn and her GHS student intern Alex Ramos, and Assistant to the Superintendent/PR Lori Martin are teaming up to bring the Goshen community a new video series called the “Superintendent Step In”. In this new series, Dr. Woodworth will go into classrooms throughout the Goshen district every week, and will participate in whatever the students/classrooms are doing.

All GCS teachers have been asked to contact the superintendent’s office if they are interested in having Dr. Woodworth step into their classroom, to see what the students are learning and see what they are doing on a daily basis. So far, we have filmed in two classes (Engineering/Design and Weightlifting), and we have two more visits scheduled in elementary classrooms. We hope that the GCS teachers will invite Dr. Woodworth into their classes for the routine things that they do, but we have also invited them to find special challenges for her as well!

When each video is ready, it will be posted on the GCS website, the website of the school in which the Superintendent Step In was filmed, and the GCS Twitter and facebook pages. The goal is to eventually visit one classroom per week, and to post videos on Friday afternoons.

Look for Dr. Woodworth to show up in future videos in classes like Building Trades, elementary P.E., Music or Art classes, IB Chemistry, or Theater. Dr. Woodworth also taught math before she was an administrator, so we know she would love to visit those classes!

The first video will be released tomorrow afternoon, don’t miss it!

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 3:50 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.

Homework help is available every Tuesday and Thursday in the media center from 3:45-5:00 p.m. You must be in the media center by 3:50 p.m. in order to stay for this, and dismissal times are at 4:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. You are expected to exit the building through door FF, which is located by the stairs just down from the media center. A bus will be available around 5:10 p.m. if you need a ride home. This bus is for students who stay for after-hours help ONLY. 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.
