It is that time of year again for the annual GHS Prom Dress Drive.  The purpose of this drive is to provide free dresses for students who want to go to the prom but may be in financial need.  We have several dresses in various styles and sizes to choose from.  If you are in need of a prom dress or if you wish to donate a gently used dress, please contact Mrs. Hershberger or Mrs. Shakley.  You may also ask your SRT teacher to help you get in contact with one of us.

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.

GHS Girls Track Recognized for Exemplary Behavior

Congratulations to the GHS Girls Track team, who was recognized for exemplary behavior by a coach from another school and the IHSAA.

“I just wanted to write a quick email about Goshen’s track team. They were impressive. I have no idea if they were any good. (inserted smile emoji) Their coach was all over the place yelling encouragement at them. The team lined the sides of the track yelling for their teammates and cheering them on – all of them. They have a large team and there were always girls by the finish line cheering and encouraging. They all looked like they were having fun. It just really made an impression. There seems to be a lot of positive interaction in track in general – the girls from all teams congratulate each other at the end of races. Goshen just stood out last night as a team. Thought I’d pass that on.”   Keshena Hunter

Congratulations to Girls Track Head Coach Aaron Willis, the rest of the coaching staff, and the student athletes. Great job representing Goshen!!

Growing Goshen Together/Creciendo Goshen Juntos

Growing Goshen Together is a series of conversations to be organized by Goshen Community Schools and the Community Relations Commission aimed at bringing community members together to learn from each other, and to gain new appreciation and understanding for others. We want the community members to reflect the dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, and political beliefs that exist in our community.

As a part of this joint project, the two agencies will host a pilot community conversation on Thursday, April 25, 2019. Things learned from that pilot event would be used to design, propose, and implement a series of events in the fall of 2019.

REMINDER: 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.  You don’t want to be the proud new owner of a big orange sticker. Officer Powell will be checking vehicles!

Homework help is available every Tuesday and Thursday in the media center from 3:45-5:00 p.m. You must be in the media center by 3:50 p.m. in order to stay for this, and dismissal times are at 4:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. You are expected to exit the building through door FF, which is located by the stairs just down from the media center. 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.

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!

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.

MEETINGS DURING SRT:

 

SPORTS SCORES:

The Goshen RedHawks softball team defeated Bethany 16-0 as two pitchers combined to throw a shutout.  Brynn Shoup-Hill and Liz Ramirez both pitched as Brynn earned the win.  Olivia Koshmider had two hits, a double, and drove in three runs.  She also had three stolen bases for the night.  Alexis Navarro and Brynn Shoup-Hill each added a double and drove in one run.

Boys varsity baseball grabbed a late lead to beat Jimtown 8-5. The RedHawks were down 2-1 in the 6th inning when Braxton Kincaid had a two RBI single to give the RedHawks the lead and they never turned back. Austin Cain got the win on the mound for the RedHawks surrendering four runs on nine hits and four strikeouts. Reece Fisher threw one inning of relief to close the game. The RedHawks had twelve hits. Reece Fisher, Austin Cain, and Braxton Kincaid all collected multiple hits on the evening, Fisher having a hot night with four hits.

The Lady RedHawks track & field team lost their NLC opener to both Northridge and Warsaw in their triple dual meet. Brandi Smith was the sole 1st place finisher for the meet (Long Jump), 2nd place finishes by Sasha Ramos (Shot Put/Discus) and Mallory Wood (Pole Vault), and 3rd place finishes by Kassidy Bestul (1600m) and Mallory Wood (100m).

Boys JV baseball fought back from a five-run deficit and came up one run short, losing to Jimtown 9-8.  Mason Schrock led the offense with two hits, drawing two walks, driving in three runs, and swiping four bases.  Mitchel Daniels added two hits, and Jocsan Sanchez, James Troyer, Isaiah Park, and Camden Kercher each drove in a run in the failed comeback.  Five errors and eleven walked batters were ultimately too much for the team to overcome in the loss.  The team is now 2-1.

Boys JV and varsity golf will play at Heron Creek vs. Memorial, Lakeland, and West Noble at 5:00 p.m. Good luck gentlemen!

Class of 2019 Graduation Ticket Information (English & Spanish)

Dear Families of the GHS class of 2019, 

Our staff has started planning for the GHS graduation, to be held in the GHS main gym on Sunday, June 9th at 2:00 p.m.

We will be issuing tickets for the graduation ceremony. Each graduate will be issued 5 tickets. The tickets will be free of charge, but each person (including babies who will be held during the ceremony) will need to have a ticket in order to get in for graduation. No one will be admitted into the gym for graduation without a ticket. We ask that you please meet your family members to distribute tickets prior to entering the school. We also have overflow seating available for those who do not have tickets to watch a live feed of the ceremony in the auditorium.   

We will announce a time for students to pick up their tickets in early May.  An ID must be presented to pick up tickets.  We will e-mail this information to students as a reminder. 

Students who do not need all of their tickets should return the extra tickets to the main office. Tickets may be re-issued to another family if there are special circumstances that cause them to need more than their allotted number of tickets. (Special circumstances will be determined by the Principal.) If your family needs more than the allotted 5 tickets, you can email the Principal’s Secretary at gradtickets@goshenschools.org to be put on the “extra ticket request” list. Tickets are limited this year due to the size of the class and the new gymnasium seating, so please have your student check with friends or people in their SRT class to see if they can find someone who does not need all of their tickets first.

If you have questions or concerns about the procedure regarding graduation tickets, you may call the high school at 533-8651.

Sincerely,

Dr. Barry C. Younghans

GHS Principal

Estimadas familias de la generación 2019 de la preparatoria Goshen High School:

Nuestro personal ha comenzado los planes de graduación de Goshen High School, que tendrá lugar en el gimnasio principal de la preparatoria, el domingo, 9 de junio, a las 2 p.m.

Distribuiremos las entradas para la ceremonia de graduación.  A cada graduado se le darán 5 entradas. Los boletos serán gratuitos, pero cada persona (incluidos los bebés a quienes carguen durante la ceremonia) deberán tener un boleto para entrar a la graduación. A nadie se le permitirá la entrada a la graduación en el gimnasio si no tiene boleto. Les pedimos que por favor se reúnan con sus familiares para distribuirles sus boletos antes de entrar a la escuela. También tenemos asientos disponibles para los que no tienen boleto, para que puedan ver la transmisión en vivo de la ceremonia en el auditorio de la escuela.    

Anunciaremos el momento en el que los estudiantes puedan recoger sus boletos a principios de mayo. Deberán presentar su identificación para recoger las entradas. Les enviaremos un correo electrónico a los estudiantes para recordarles.

Los estudiantes que no necesiten todas sus entradas deben devolver las entradas adicionales a la dirección principal. Les entregaremos estos boletos a otra familia, en caso de que hubiera circunstancias especiales que hicieran que necesitaran más que su número asignado de entradas. El director escolar determinará cuáles son dichas circunstancias especiales. Si su familia necesita más de los 5 boletos asignados, envíele un correo electrónico a la secretaria del director escolar a gradtickets@goshenschools.org para que lo incluya en la lista de “solicitudes de boletos adicionales”. El número de entradas está limitado este año debido al tamaño de la generación que se graduará y al tamaño del nuevo gimnasio. Por lo tanto, pídale a su hijo que primero revise con sus compañeros en su clase de SRT, si hay alguien que no necesita todas sus entradas. 

Si tiene preguntas o inquietudes sobre el procedimiento relativo a los boletos de graduación, puede llamar a la preparatoria al 533-8651.

Atentamente,

Barry C. Younghans

Director Escolar de GHS

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.

It is that time of year again for the annual GHS Prom Dress Drive.  The purpose of this drive is to provide free dresses for students who want to go to the prom but may be in financial need.  We have several dresses in various styles and sizes to choose from.  If you are in need of a prom dress or if you wish to donate a gently used dress, please contact Mrs. Hershberger or Mrs. Shakley.  You may also ask your SRT teacher to help you get in contact with one of us.

It’s not too late – yearbooks are for sale for $45!  They can be purchased online at jostensyearbooks.com or you can bring your payment to Mrs. Long in room 1400 in the Whiteman wing/art area.

REMINDER: 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.  You don’t want to be the proud new owner of a big orange sticker. Officer Powell will be checking vehicles!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
