GCS Transportation-Implementation of Safe Stop App

Goshen Community Schools is implementing an electronic application (App) for use on parents’ smartphones. The App, SafeStop, will let parents and students monitor where their assigned bus is as it performs its’ route. We have links to the user guide on our website under the transportation tab. For all elementary students, we will be sending home a paper copy of the user guide. We have been beta testing the app since December.

This app only works for students that are assigned to ride a GCS bus and works using the one bus stop assigned to them. This means that only the parent/student has access to the app. No one else will be able to access it without a student id number. If you have moved or your student is at a babysitter, you would have had to inform the transportation office of this change so that the information could be updated.

As you know GCS is currently experiencing a bus driver shortage and at times we have had to double up routes using existing buses or split students among different buses. In these cases, the app will be unable to be used to track the bus that is not in service for the day. The app has the capability for the transportation department to push out notifications to specific bus routes, so our communication about changes should be improved.

As with any new program, we ask for your patience as we implement this program district-wide. The number for the transportation department is (574) 533-7176, please call us with concerns.

Safe Stop Parent guide, click here: https://www.goshenschools.org/files/2019/02/SafeStop-Parent-Guide-Goshen-English.pdf

La Corporación Escolar de Goshen está implementando una aplicación electrónica que los padres de familia pueden usar en sus teléfonos inteligentes. La aplicación, SafeStop les permitirá a los padres de familia y a los estudiantes monitorear en dónde se encuentra su autobús asignado mientras realiza su ruta. En la pestaña de transporte de nuestro sitio Web, encontrará enlaces que lo llevarán a la guía del usuario de esta aplicación. Asimismo, enviaremos una copia impresa de la guía del usuario a la casa de los estudiantes de primaria. Hemos estado haciendo pruebas beta de la aplicación desde diciembre.

Esta aplicación sólo funciona para los estudiantes que están asignados a tomar un autobús de la Corporación Escolar de Goshen, utilizando sólo la parada de autobús asignada para ellos. Esto significa que sólo el padre de familia o el estudiante tiene acceso a la aplicación. Nadie más podrá tener acceso a ésta, sin el número de identificación de estudiante. Si se mudó o su hijo está en casa de la niñera, usted habrá tenido que informarle a la oficina de transporte sobre este cambio para que la información pudiera actualizarse.

Recent GMS/GHS German Club Activities

The German Club has been very busy lately! Take a look at just a couple of their recent activities.

Staatskongress: This is a conference for students studying German from all over Indiana. The event is held at Ball State University each year.  Eleven students from Goshen Middle School and Goshen High School participated in academic competitions and workshops, and they had a traditional German meal for lunch.

In one of the workshops, students learned the “Sterntanz” (star dance), and this can be seen in the video (to be posted separately).

Congratulations to Grant Miller for earning 2nd place in the Level 1 Vocabulary Bee.  Grant placed 2nd out of 14 competitors from across the state!

Tobogganing: The German Club also went on a trip to Pokagon State Park last Friday evening after school to get some time to socialize with our five exchange students from our partner school in Bielefeld, Germany.  Students had a blast going down the toboggan run!

Goshen Redevelopment Commission Provides Grant to GHS

On Friday afternoon, Mayor Jeremy Stutsman presented GCS Superintendent Diane Woodworth a check for $100,000, courtesy of the Goshen Redevelopment Commission.

The following statement was taken from a letter by Mayor Stutsman and Community & Redevelopment Director Mark Brinson:

“This grant was approved by the Commission at their meeting on December11, 2018. The purpose of the grant is to support the cost of operating the Advance Manufacturing Academy, a program of Goshen Community Schools. We understand these funds will be used to purchase training equipment which will allow students to train on equipment used by local industry as they work toward certifications in advanced manufacturing.”

“The Redevelopment Commission and I appreciate the leadership Goshen Schools Administration and the Goshen School Board have provided in developing this new initiative. The Advanced Manufacturing Academy will not only benefit our world-class manufacturing community, it will provide opportunities for Goshen students to build successful careers right here in their home town.”

Thank you, Mayor Stutsman, Mr. Brinson, and the Redevelopment Commission. GCS greatly appreciates your support!!

Tell Us A Story

Last week we shared a few stories about GCS students and staff that were reported to us. The stories highlighted some pretty great things about the people who come to GCS every day to work and learn. The Goshen community also seemed to appreciate hearing about the good things happening in our school community.

So, if you have a positive story about a GCS student or staff member that you would like us to share with the wider Goshen community, please tell us! You may email Lori Martin at lmartin@goshenschools.org and she will pass your story along via the GCS website, Facebook, and Twitter.

When you see something beautiful in someone, tell them (and others!). The world needs more of that.

#ghscares, And They Really Do!

The note below was sent to GHS administrators and several special education teachers, and is shared with permission from Model principal/GHS parent, Tami Hicks:

Putting on my parent hat. 

I just want to take a few moments to thank each of you for all that you have done for Ethan this year and years past.  It truly takes a village for each of our children and a city to support our special needs kiddos.  Thank you for supporting my wish for him to walk at graduation, for him to attend prom last year, the unified sports teams, for always thinking about Ethan’s best interest when placing him with a teacher/para, for the daily communication logs and growth mindsets when he is being a turkey.   You have no idea how much you mean to me. (And to Ethan.).  

Student Alexa Evans also has played a big role in my sanity over the years.  Day in and day out she talks about Ethan and how special he is.  Long story short, when Ethan and Alexa were at GMS, I was behind Alexa who was walking behind Ethan.  Ethan was being very loud (so normal), and Alexa, who had no clue Ethan was my son or that I was behind her said to her friend, “ That kid is Ethan. He went to Prairie View with me and he is my best friend.  I love him so much.”  Then she said hi to Ethan.  I immediately started sobbing. Later I told her how much that meant to me.  She has vowed to take him to prom since then. 😂😂😂. 

Two days ago, she left this note in my door at school.  “I love your son! He is the only man I need!” Alexa

It’s moments like this that truly make me stop and think about how incredibly blessed we are to live in a community that supports us.  

Thank you for all that you do not only for Ethan but for all of our children.

Sincerely, 

Tami
