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. Please do not cut through the nurse’s office to get to her. You need to enter through the main office.

As a graduate of Goshen High School, Mrs. Troup has continued to support all Goshen schools, to serve the greater Goshen community, and has been a true advocate for public education.

She has served in many capacities on the Goshen board, including 1 year as treasurer, 11 years as secretary, 4 years as vice president, and 4 years as president. Additionally, she has also served on many district committees, including Athletic Council, the Board Policy Committee, the Facility Task Force, and the Legislative Committee.

In addition to her roles with the Goshen school board, Jane also served as the President of the Indiana School Board Association and has faithfully attended Indiana School Board Association and National School Board Association annual conferences, meetings and seminars over the years to stay up-to-date with current educational trends, legislation, data, and research.

Jane was honored this past year at the Indiana School Board Association conference when she was awarded the Outstanding Boardmanship Award. Additionally, she has been awarded the Ernestine M. Racline Community Leadership Award, which is presented by First Source Bank each year to an influential community member.

Goshen Schools has appreciated Jane’s continued willingness to read, research, and learn more about education, to advocate for GCS students and staff members, and to commit herself to twice-monthly school board meetings for so many years!
