The Recycle Caps Project is back by student request!  Last year GHS collected 400+ pounds of plastic caps/lids that were recycled into a red bench located in commons by auditorium.  This year we just need 200 pounds. Many types of plastic caps/lids can be collected. They need to be recycle #2, 4, or 5, and need to be CLEAN. SRTs that collect, sort, and fill a copy paper box (approx. 8 pounds) will have their name entered in a random drawing for cookies to be delivered to their class at the end of the semester.   Email Mrs. Swihart at cswihart@staff.goshenschools.org if you have questions, or stop by room 2200.

Important Information for Seniors – Nurse Wendy wants to make sure that you are aware that some immunization requirements have changed and you may need to update your vaccines before going to college.  Please email Nurse Wendy if you have any questions or are not sure if yours are up to date.  Currently we have just over 300 seniors who will need these shots before going to many colleges, universities, or trade schools.

Our Energy Educator, Judy Miller, also deserves much credit as she is always working behind the scenes to keep our momentum going.”

Judy Miller, GCS Energy Educator said, “I’m so pleased that our district has been chosen to receive this coveted DOE Green Ribbon Schools distinction. There were so many components in this application that basically fit into the three required growth pillars of:  reducing environmental impact and costs; improving health and wellness; and providing effective environmental and sustainability education.  If it “takes a village” to raise a child, it certainly takes “a whole corporation” to educate a student.  We are being recognized with this distinction because of this “whole corporation” approach.  Our corporation is enhanced by an active community, our students, the Coordinated School Health Committee, our Green Team, the custodial and maintenance departments, teachers, administrators, school counselors, support staff, and school nutrition staff—all are essential participants in our approach to wellness, and growth as a healthy and sustainable organization.”

Across the country, 35 schools, 14 school districts, and four post-secondary institutions are being honored for their innovative efforts to reduce environmental impact and utility costs, improve health and wellness, and ensure effective sustainability education. Goshen Community Schools was among the 14 school districts recognized across the nation and was the only honoree in the State of Indiana.

The honorees were named from a pool of candidates nominated by 28 states. The selectees include 25 public schools, including three magnet schools and two charter schools, as well as 10 nonpublic schools. Thirty-six percent of the 2019 honorees serve a disadvantaged student body.

The list of all selected schools, districts, colleges, and universities, as well as their nomination packages, can be found here. A report with highlights on the 53 honorees can be found here. More information on the federal recognition award can be found here. Resources for all schools to move toward the three Pillars can be found here.

A huge THANK YOU to all members of the GCS community who help to make GCS an efficient, healthy, more sustainable place!

GHS ELECTS ZOE EICHORN TO YOUTH ADVISER POSITION

GOSHEN, Ind. (May 17, 2019) – Mayor Jeremy Stutsman will appoint Goshen High School student Zoe Eichorn to the City Council as the new Youth Adviser for the 2019-2020 school year.

Zoe, who is now finishing her junior year, was elected by the student body in an election held Thursday, May 16. She won in a close race with her fellow candidates, Simon Hertzler Gascho, Dylan Steury and Joseph Narayan.

Current youth adviser Felix Perez Diener will continue to serve with the City Council until early June, at which time Zoe will be sworn in as the newest member of the council.

State law allows mayors to appoint a person younger than 18 years of age to serve as a non-voting member to the council and as an adviser on matters concerning the youth. Mayor Jeremy Stutsman has instead encouraged Goshen High School to elect a student to represent them and all the younger constituents in the City. Junior high school students are elected in the spring and serve for a year with the council as a non-voting member.

Since its first planning in 2015, the Elkhart County Voter Registration Office, Goshen Community Schools and the City of Goshen have collaborated to hold elections at the high school.

5-13-19 Board Recognition

Highlighting Chamberlain

Chamberlain principal Karen Blaha stated that at Chamberlain, we are Crew. We support each other every day, in many ways. We practice the Habits of Scholarship every day.  The Chamberlain Habits of Scholarship are: Integrity, I will do what is right, even when it is difficult; Craftsmanship, I am dedicated to high quality work; Courage, I will take risks and learn from mistakes; Grit, I will persevere toward a goal; and Compassion, I will connect with and appreciate others.

Chamberlain students then shared about their expeditions from the second semester.

Kindergarten students shared that they learned how authors use true facts to write stories. They learned facts about chickens from community experts, and then they wrote stories about chickens.

First graders learned about the parks in Goshen, helped at Shanklin Park, created a timeline about the creation of Shanklin Park, and then wrote their own books about the parks in Goshen.

Second graders studied Thrive like a hive, a unit about bees. They explained how they used the habits of scholarship as they worked on their bee projects.

Third graders studied Tremendous trees and stated that they didn’t realize how important trees are to a community. They also learned how to make scientific drawings, how to do case studies, they learned the value of trees, and finally, they helped plant trees.

Fourth graders experienced Market Day where they learned the five steps to starting and running a successful business. The culmination of their project was to sell products they had designed and made to other students at Chamberlain.

The fifth graders reflected on their years of learning at Chamberlain. Several students remembered different projects that they had worked on over the years, including when they tie-dyed shirts. They mentioned that they would remember the great teachers and the friends they made at Chamberlain. They reported that they were glad they learned the habits of scholarship because I think they will be important for me to use at middle school. And lastly, one student shared that I will always remember Chamberlain. This is not just school; this is home.

Student Recognition

Members of the GHS Chess team were honored following their 2nd place/State Runner-Up finish at the Indiana Chess Team Championship. The students on the honored team include: Matthew Snyder (10th grade), Soroosh Kermani (9th grade), Brenton Pham (10th grade), and Daniel Elizalde (10th grade). The students said that they were also honored by the board in 5th grade because they had a very strong showing at the state tournament then; and they added, and you can expect to see us again before we graduate!

GHS chess coach Ken Cross stated that this is a really fun group, they enjoy playing chess. They are very busy with athletics, music, academics, and other things, but they still want to play chess. Mr. Cross also thanked Dan Shenk and Joe Riegsecker who have supported the GCS chess club/programming for many years. He added that GCS had 220 students participate in chess this year, and that chess is valuable for students in so many ways, but it is especially helpful with regard to critical-thinking skills.
