GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2015
Have a happy and safe Halloween!
We have two sectional football tickets available for tonight’s game for $6. Please see Jan Schrock in Athletics if you are interested.
Reminder: Please do not chain your bikes to the fence along Purl St. by the soccer fields. If you do, it’s possible your lock will be cut off and your bike will be moved.
The Ultimate Frisbee Club meets after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:45-5:00 p.m. on the administration field. If you’re interested in learning how to play the sport of Ultimate Frisbee, you can pick up your required paperwork from Mr. Snyder in the choir office, Lucas Kauffman, or in the main office. The paperwork should be turned in the first time you attend.
It’s time to order your 2015-2016 school yearbook. The cost of the book is $45 until December, meaning the best time to buy is now! You can find order forms at the RedZone, in the main office, library and the guidance office. If you ordered before today, your name was entered in a drawing to win a free yearbook. 2nd place will receive $5 in RedZone bucks. The winners will be announced TODAY!
IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: Everyone that plays athletics at any level will suffer a tough loss from time to time. If you are a Michigan football player, last week’s loss to rival Michigan State is as tough as they come. Michigan’s punter fumbled the snap and MSU scored with no time left to win the game. Was it the punter’s fault? Was it a bad snap? Was it a coaching decision? In the long run, it doesn’t really matter. But one thing I do know is this: never let a play or game, good or bad, define you as a person. What really defines you is what you learn from your sport’s experience. Hopefully it makes you a better person and helps prepare you for future challenges in life!
The Faith Mission in Elkhart is giving away coats for WOMEN & CHILDREN on Tuesday, November 3rd from 1-6:00 p.m. at 801 Benham Avenue. Each woman and child MUST be present to receive a coat. You may not pick up a coat for anyone who is not present. Please see flyers on bulletin boards throughout GHS for more information.
Winter cheerleading and G-men tryouts will be on November 2nd and 3rd from 4-6:00 p.m. Meet in Whiteman gym on the mondo. You must have an up to date physical and a cardiac arrest and concussion paper turned into the athletic office to tryout.

Boys basketball practice begins Monday, November 9th. All boys that plan to play must have a physical on file with the Athletic office. If you plan to play and are not currently in a fall sport you should be attending open gym/conditioning. See www.goshenbasketball.org (or see a coach) for the open gym schedule.
GHS’s Month of Compassion Human Project has officially begun! Every year GHS students and staff bring in canned food items to be donated to local food pantries. This year, we will be collecting coats, hats and gloves in addition to non-perishable foods. Donation boxes are located in a limited number of classrooms throughout the school, and items will be accepted from now until November 19th.
