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.

Do you like to run or do you hate it but need to lose weight?  Join Running Club!  Running Club meets every day in the weight room after school and is open to anyone.  It is imperative to dress warmly because we run outside regardless of the weather.  If you have any questions, find Mr. DuBois (the math teacher/track coach/cross country coach) in the school.

You are under no circumstances allowed to lock your bike up to any fence or gate on school property. There has been a problem with students specifically doing this along the fence/gate to the soccer fields. If you continue to do this, your lock will be cut, and your bike will be removed. 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. Ya hubo un problema con los estudiantes que específicamente están haciendo esto a lo largo de la reja/puerta del campo de fútbol.  Si continúan haciendo esto, el candado será cortado, y la bici será quitada.  Hay bastidores para bicicletas disponibles para ser utilizados.  ¡Gracias por su cooperación con esto!

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.

After school, it is expected that all students exit the building by 3:50 p.m.  If you have an after school activity, you should report to the sponsor’s room responsible for that activity by 3:50 p.m. You are not to remain in the hallways or commons after 3:50 p.m.  Thank you for your cooperation with this request.

Free/reduced lunch forms are available in the bookkeeper’s office, in the cafeteria and in guidance. Please pick one up if you need it!

Any student driving needs to have a parking tag.  You can get this through Mrs. Haney in the Bookkeeper’s office.  You need to have a valid license, valid registration, valid proof of insurance (this means that none of these can be expired), and $5.  OJ has started tagging vehicles without parking permits, so please make this a priority. You don’t want to be the proud new owner of a big orange sticker.

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.

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. You can get this sticker in the main office from Mrs. Wolfe or Mrs. Kuiper.

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.

The Lilly Endowment, Inc. and the Community Foundation of Elkhart County are proud to honor nine outstanding students in Elkhart County. 

Three students from Elkhart County will receive Lilly Endowment Community Scholarships (LECS) entitling them to full tuition, fees and $900 a year for required books and equipment to any accredited public or private nonprofit college or university in Indiana. The selected students are: Lisa Hochstetler, Northridge; Claire Mumaw, Fairfield; and Alexa Porter, Concord.

In addition, the Community Foundation is also proud to award the Guy David Gundlach Memorial Scholarship to the following six students: Danyelle Adams, Jimtown; Margot Cruz-Portillo, Elkhart Memorial; Melissa Daniels, GoshenClaire HershbergerClinton ChristianJaycee RossiElkhart CentralOtto Schlatter, NorthWood. Each of these students will receive $5,000 per year for four years to any accredited Indiana college or university.  This memorial scholarship is only one of the many positive initiatives established due to Mr. Gundlach’s gift in 2011. Since the inception of the scholarship, 37 Elkhart County students have received this $20,000 award. 

Commenting on the awards, Community Foundation Career Pathways Chair, Rob Cripe, noted that the Community Foundation administers over 100 scholarship funds. “In fiscal year 2018, the awards totaled more than $2.3 million benefiting hundreds of students from Elkhart County who are currently pursuing higher education. These scholarships make a considerable impact, not only in the lives of these students and their families, but also on the educational and economic future of our county.”

ELIGIBILITY AND SCHOLARSHIP PROCESS

Each of the eligible high schools in Elkhart County selects one nominee evaluated based on academic performance (including grades and course load), extra-curricular and civic involvement, work experience, career goals, unusual circumstances, interview and an essay.

“After the Community Foundation scholarship committee received the nominee applications, names were removed from the application and the applications were scored (excluding the essays) by the Community Foundation Career Pathways Committee and staff,” Amanda Jamison, Community Foundation Senior Program Officer, explains. “The ‘blind’ essays were then scored by Goshen College professors, the scores tallied and the field narrowed to the top five nominees. The finalists’ names were submitted to the Independent Colleges of Indiana, Inc. (ICI) for final review and selection of the final three recipients.” ICI is a nonprofit corporation that represents 30 regionally accredited degree granting, nonprofit, private colleges and universities in the state.

ABOUT THE LILLY ENDOWMENT COMMUNITY SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

The Lilly Endowment Community Scholarships are the result of a statewide Lilly Endowment initiative to help Hoosier students reach higher levels of education. Indiana ranks among the lowest states in the percentage of residents over the age of 25 with a Bachelor’s degree. The program, now in its 22nd year, has awarded 85 LECS to students in Elkhart County and 4,626 state-wide, thus far providing more than $392 million dollars in tuition scholarships since inception.

The primary purposes of the Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Program are 1) to help raise the level of educational attainment in Indiana; 2) to increase awareness of the beneficial roles Indiana community foundations can play in their communities; and 3) to encourage and support the efforts of current and past Lilly Endowment Community Scholars to engage with each other and with Indiana business, governmental, educational, nonprofit and civic leaders to improve the quality of life in Indiana generally and in local communities throughout the state.

ABOUT COMMUNITY FOUNDATION OF ELKHART COUNTY

Community Foundation of Elkhart County partners with donors to leverage their philanthropy in ways that transform lives. Since 1989, the Community Foundation has connected the generosity of donors with community needs by providing scholarship opportunities to local students and making grants to nonprofit organizations working to improve Elkhart County.  It’s with strength and hope the Community Foundation seeds the local landscape, supporting plans, programs, and ideas that potentially stand the test of time.  The Community Foundation strives to be a local entity known for inspiring good and impacting success.

“The Nature of Life is to Grow” (17) Growing Through GCS

Over the course of this first semester, we have shown you some of the things students are learning and doing in each grade. We have shown the progression in the degree of difficulty of the coursework for each next/new grade. We have shown how many opportunities there are for students traveling the normal, or usual, pathways offered at GCS, and we have shown that there are alternative pathways for students who may need something different during their educational journey. We hope that you have enjoyed this look at GCS, and that you have seen and understood all that our teachers and staff members do to help the students at GCS grow and mature.

Here are just a few of the pictures that were taken over the semester:

Kindergarten

First Grade

Second Grade

Third Grade

Fourth Grade

Fifth Grade

Sixth Grade

Seventh Grade

Eighth Grade

Freshmen

Sophomores and Juniors

Seniors

From Pre-K and kindergarten to 12th grade, our staff focuses on living out the mission of Goshen Community Schools for all of our students: Inspiring Innovation…Empowering Potential…Enriching our World. We want each student in our care to feel that they are in the exact, best place for them to learn, to grow, and to be successful well after the day that they leave our school system.

Our staff works hard to stay on the cutting-edge of all that public education has to offer, by scheduling quality professional development within each school building each week. Additionally, teachers and administrators travel across the country to keep abreast of new programming and to collaborate with leaders in education. Our staff does all of this so that we may offer the most innovative programs available, and so that we can meet the needs of all learners.

After visiting classrooms throughout the district, we think that you would find truth in the fact that at GCS our number one value is that “Relationships Matter”. Our teachers genuinely care about their students, and they do whatever they can to help students be successful, in academics and in life.

Each year, we send our seniors out into society, knowing that they will truly enrich our world. We have living proof! Our graduates are doctors, teachers, plumbers, scientists, nurses, electricians, social workers, managers, accountants, policemen and women, administrative assistants, manufacturing technicians, physical therapists, chefs, business owners, professional musicians, construction workers, firemen, lawyers, coaches, IT specialists, paralegals, mechanics, travel agents, marine biologists, wastewater operators, EMTs, software developers, yoga instructors, and so much more!

At GCS, our goal is for all of our students to grow and mature during their educational years with us, so that they are ready for whatever their futures may hold. So if your kindergarten student (like the one below) is just learning how to properly greet people and how to be a part of the school community, or if your senior is one of the speakers at graduation (pictured below); please know that GCS values your student(s) and is working hard to help them learn, grow, and succeed!

“The Nature of Life is to Grow” (16) Seniors and Merit

We recently visited Britney Charles’ English 12 class to see what her seniors were doing. When we arrived in her classroom, Ms. Charles was explaining to her students where they could find the study guide for their upcoming final exam. She said, “I will not be grading it, but if you do the work, it will definitely help you with the final exam, because all of that stuff will be on the exam next week.” On her information for the Final Exam Study Guide was a small sign/suggestion that said Keep Calm and Study for Final Exam. There was also a sign on the wall with a couple of very concise course goals: Become a better reader and writer, and Earn a credit. Great (and necessary) goals for GHS seniors!

Ms. Charles stated that the class had just finished reading a graphic novel, American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang, and that they were going to discuss the book as a class and then spend some time working on a related writing assignment. Although graphic novels may be foreign to many adults, this book sounded intriguing. The book is about three very different characters with one simple goal; to fit in. Much of the discussion was about “stereotypes and what we expect from different people” and the character finally “acknowledging and accepting his Chinese-American heritage”. One of the character’s favorite toys was a transformer, to which one of the students said “maybe his favorite toy is a transformer because it symbolizes his transformation through the book.” They also considered the fact that some of the characters were exposed as being someone other than who they presented themselves to be when their masks came off at the end of the book.

 

There were some students who were more engaged in the discussion than others, and who had pretty obviously enjoyed the book, because they frequently offered thoughts, ideas, and opinions to Ms. Charles’ questions. The student in the first picture below seemed especially knowledgeable about the book and the ideas and themes running through it.

Next, Ms. Charles handed out a paper with four writing prompts on it. She noted that the assignment was already on Canvas (the program through which students and teachers communicate regarding course assignments), and that some students may have already made a copy of it from Canvas. From the four writing prompts, the students were instructed to choose one prompt from which to write their essay, and begin writing using the OEA (Observation, Evidence, and Analysis) guide. “Once your observation sentence is done let me check it with you, and then you can begin to work on evidence and analysis.” Ms. Charles also noted that “the rubric I will use to grade your essay is also on Canvas”. She encouraged the students to look at the rubric if they wanted to know what points she would be looking for in their essays.

As the students worked on their observation sentences, Ms. Charles went around to give the students feedback and suggestions for refinement, so that they would be able to base their essay on a good, solid start.

Following our visit to GHS, we went to Merit Learning Center, one of the GCS alternative learning centers. Merit is located in the old Riverdale School, which many longtime Goshen residents will remember as one of Goshen’s former elementary schools.

Mrs. Kim Gallagher is in her second year as the principal at Merit, and new to Merit this year, but now new to GCS, is the counselor, Viratham Mounsithiraj. Mr. Mounsithiraj, or “V” as he is called by many, has been the GHS boys soccer coach for a number of years, and came to Merit with a background in school counseling and social work.

Mrs. Gallagher said that there are approximately 200 students enrolled at Merit, and of those 200, Goshen schools has 115 of the “spots”. The numbers or “spots” beyond the 115 Goshen students are filled by students from other school systems within the county. Most of the students are classified as juniors and seniors, but there are some sophomores, and even a few freshmen. Merit offers an online learning curriculum, with certified teachers to support and assist the students. There is a morning session from 8:00-11:00 a.m., and an afternoon session from 12:00-3:00 p.m.

This year, Merit is also offering Night School to adults who wish to return to school to get their high school diploma. The students, mainly ranging in ages 19-25, may attend school on Monday-Thursday evenings from 5:00-9:00 p.m. to work on the online curriculum with supervision from certified teachers.

When we entered the first classroom, or Lab 1, the students were all working quietly on their computers. When they had questions or issues with their technology, they simply raised their hands and one of the teachers in the classroom got up to help them. According to the teachers, they all help all of the students. However, the teachers all have subjects with which they are more familiar, and if a student is asking about Algebra II or Science, then the teacher with the most expertise in that area will likely be the one to help with those questions.

 

All around the school and in the classrooms are reminders of just how many credits the students have earned, and how many have finished and are ready to graduate. Their names and the class in which they earned the credit are listed on each post, and the collage of credits just keeps growing around the rooms.

According to one of the teachers, they try to keep students on pace to earn just over one credit per month, so that they can earn at least 10 credits per year. Of course, there are some students that earn many more credits than that, and some that earn less credits. “We expect the kids to take 2 quizzes per day if they are reading their units and retaining the information. That keeps them on track for earning the credit for the course….If students are motivated to earn credits quickly, they can also get into the APEX program at home and work on their study units, as APEX is a web-based program. We don’t let them take the quizzes at home, they have to do quizzes here, but they can study at home and keep moving forward with their subject(s).”

Students can take all of the core subjects required for graduation at Merit, and they can also get most of the elective classes there as well. Merit also offers such courses as Personal Finance and College and Careers.

Merit also offers P.E., which is taught partially through “Service Learning” on two Wednesdays per month. During service learning, students may go to such places as Ox Bow Park to clear trails, they may work for the Habitat for Humanity ReStore helping to move inventory, or they may volunteer at other agencies such as The Window, LaCasa, Church Community Services, and Love Way. Otherwise, their P.E. class sessions consist of swimming at GMS, yoga at Merit, walking in the school’s neighborhood, and going to The Post to lift weights, among other physical activities.

Besides supervising the students as they work on independent courses, the teachers are helping students to become more efficient online learners, and teaching them strategies to assist students in their work. Merit teacher Stephenie Ward stated that the Merit teachers have been working together in their Cluster and in Professional Development to find new ways to support and assist students as they work on online courses. And, as always, “we are building relationships with the students, to encourage and support them” with things such as attendance issues, motivation to finish their high school degree, family issues, stress, and possible anxiety issues.

As seniors, the students as GHS and Merit are moving toward the end of the educational experience at GCS. They have learned the skills that GCS works to instill in all 12th grade learners: Strong fundamental academic knowledge and preparedness for tests such as the SAT and ACT, Personal and social skills needed for further education or the workplace, Future life direction determined with plans in place to achieve personal goals, Interaction and engagement with the community, and Effective communication and advanced technology skills. By the time GHS students graduate (which includes Merit students), they may have had up to 13 years with GCS; years full of encouragement, support, motivation, academic growth, opportunities and social maturation. The seniors are ready for whatever plans that they, along with the influence of their families, have made.

We hate to see our seniors leave GCS! But, we are always excited to see the ways in which they will leave their positive imprint on our society. They have grown, and they will be ready.

IHSAA Exemplary Behavior Report Filed for GHS

The following IHSAA Exemplary Report was filed by Concord Schools/David Preheim:

Following tonight’s (12/6/18) Girls C-Team Basketball game, Goshen Coach Shaun Hill noticed I was folding up and putting away the team bench chairs. He immediately began to help and also had some of his managers help as well. They even moved down and helped put away chairs on the Concord team bench too! If this small act is indicative of how Coach Hill runs his program and teaches his kids, the Girls Basketball program at Goshen is in great hands! This small act of assistance was much appreciated and left a very good impression of Goshen High School!

Participating Individuals: Shaun Hill (Coach), Girls Basketball

Regards,
IHSAA (Indiana High School Athletic Association)

GCS/Lippert United Way Coat Drive

Goshen Community Schools and Lippert Components have joined forces for the last couple of years to hold a United Way coat drive for the students and families of Goshen. And again this year, employees from GCS and Lippert, along with other local business and families, donated coats, hats, mittens, boots, and snow pants. Once the drive ended, different student groups from GHS head over to the GCS Administration Center to help sort everything out according to sizes. The coat drive is coordinated by the GCS Registrar, Mrs. Stella Garcia.

The warm winter clothing will be available for families on Monday, December 10th. Families should simply see Mrs. Garcia in Central Registration in order to select what they need. If people still want to donate or if they have questions, they should call 574-971-4149 and speak to Stella Garcia.

Mrs. Garcia is pictured below, giving instructions to the students.

The coats from around the district and from Lippert needed to be carried upstairs to the store room.

And then the task of sorting began. A huge THANK YOU to the GHS Multi-Cultural Youth Alliance (MYA) and their sponsor Gaby Tovar for helping with this year’s coat drive.

United Way President Bill Rieth, Lippert representatives Jared Wilson and Toby Crowley, and Assistant Superintendent Tammy Ummel.

GCS/United Way Volunteer Coordinator Sharon Sarber, pictured below, also helped with the effort.

DeAnna Spencer, from Lippert, and Mrs. Ummel.

More sorting.

Stella Garcia, DeAnna Spencer, Sharon Sarber, and Bill Rieth.

Thank you to all who donated articles of clothing to provide warmth for their neighbors. Our community of Goshen is a caring, giving community!
