There are bike racks available, and they should be used. Thank you for your cooperation with this!

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.

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. GTV 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.

Comunicado de prensa conjunto-Comisión de Relaciones Comunitarias y Escuelas Comunitarias de Goshen

GOSHEN, Ind. (agosto 15, 2019)—Después de una exitosa conversación comunitaria piloto en la primavera, la Comisión de Relaciones Comunitarias de Goshen (CRC) y las Escuelas Comunitarias de Goshen (GCS) se embarcarán en una serie de eventos en los próximos meses que alentarán el discurso sobre temas que afectan exclusivamente a los residentes de Goshen.

Una serie de tres conversaciones comunitarias, todas abiertas al público, se llevarán a cabo en varios lugares de la ciudad este otoño, cada una abordando un tema diferente que surgió de los miembros participantes en una conversación piloto en abril. La serie de conversaciones se llama “Creciendo Goshen Juntos” (CGJ).

Jes Stoltzfus Buller, una facilitadora experta con experiencia significativa en el diálogo colaborativo, será la anfitriona de las conversaciones en formato World Café. Este método de discusión de mesa redonda en grupos pequeños ofrece un ambiente íntimo que invita a la curiosidad y ayuda a construir relaciones, brindando a todos los participantes la oportunidad de hablar.

Se ofrecerá interpretación en cada mesa entre inglés y español, para que los participantes puedan compartir en el idioma que les resulte más cómodo. Toda la información y comentarios introductorios también se proporcionarán en inglés y español.

Después de cada conversación, la facilitadora escribirá un informe basado en notas y comentarios de la mesa, y encuestas posteriores al evento. El informe incluirá los aspectos más destacados de la conversación sobre los temas que surgieron, así como ideas o recomendaciones.

La información servirá para vigorizar la creación de un plan de acción en cada área. Representantes de CRC, GCS y la Ciudad de Goshen crearán un equipo de acción central y para cada conversación/tema, los participantes de la conversación y las partes interesadas clave serán invitados a unirse. Este equipo evaluará el informe y elaborará los próximos pasos y planes de seguimiento concretos.

“Goshen es esa comunidad rara donde no solo decimos que adoptamos la diversidad, sino que vivimos los valores de aceptación, aprecio y celebración de la diversidad todos los días”, dijo Steve Hope, superintendente adjunto de GCS y miembro del comité de la serie GGT. “También central para la misión de Goshen Community Schools, nos complace asociarnos con la Comisión de Relaciones Comunitarias de la ciudad para apoyar esta serie de conversaciones comunitarias. En el corazón de cualquier comunidad vibrante y económicamente fuerte es un sistema escolar fuerte. A través de cada conversación, las Escuelas Comunitarias de Goshen también aprenden y crecen y están en mejores condiciones de apoyar a todos y cada uno de nuestros estudiantes “.

CRC y GCS comenzaron conversaciones en 2018 para intercambiar ideas sobre la posibilidad de construir puentes entre diversos grupos de la comunidad. Al reconocer la diversidad de todo tipo en toda la ciudad, vieron una oportunidad para promover la tolerancia, la comprensión y la gratitud para todas las personas. Esto llevó a una conversación comunitaria piloto, Creciendo Goshen Juntos, el 25 de abril de 2019, celebrada en Goshen High School. Las respuestas de ese evento pidieron más conversaciones. A través de conversaciones continuas sobre los problemas que enfrenta la comunidad de Goshen, CRC y GCS esperan continuar fomentando las relaciones en toda la comunidad de Goshen.

La siguiente información ofrece detalles sobre la próxima serie de conversaciones de otoño. Se está preparando una posible serie para la primavera, pendiente de aprobación por parte del CRC.

Una cultura que aprende: Nuestras escuelas y la comunidad juntas • 26 de septiembre de 2019 • 6–8 p.m. • Boys and Girls Club

Resumen: Esta conversación ofrecerá la oportunidad de aprender de las escuelas de la comunidad, que albergan la diversidad encarnada en Goshen, que se vive en la práctica todos los días. La conversación se centrará en lo que está yendo bien en nuestras escuelas y dónde se necesita crecimiento. ¿Cómo pueden nuestras escuelas servir mejor a las familias en Goshen y cuál es su papel en la comunidad en general?

Cómo crece Goshen: Equilibrando el poder y levantando líderes • 24 de octubre de 2019 • 6–8 p.m. • Parque Shanklin, Pabellón Schrock

Resumen: Esta conversación abordará el liderazgo y el poder en la comunidad de Goshen. Los participantes tendrán la oportunidad de hablar sobre equilibrios exitosos de poder y cómo se crea, así como también ver los desafíos para un poder igualado. ¿Cómo se accede al poder y cómo aumenta la comunidad la capacidad y el liderazgo para brindar oportunidades de poder compartido?

Quién es Goshen: Contando nuestras historias • 14 de noviembre de 2019 • 6–8 p.m. • Boys and Girls Club

Resumen: Esta conversación proporcionará espacio para conocer a otros en la comunidad escuchando y compartiendo sobre la identidad y las experiencias que dan forma a cada persona. ¿Cómo han moldeado nuestras experiencias nuestros valores? Unir las divisiones requiere conocerse los unos a los otros: ¿podemos aprender a conocernos y pasar de extraños a amigos?

Joint Press Release-Community Relations Commission & Goshen Community Schools

GOSHEN, Ind. (Aug. 15, 2019)—Following a successful pilot community conversation in the spring, the Goshen Community Relations Commission (CRC) and Goshen Community Schools (GCS) will embark on a series of events in the next several months that will encourage discourse around topics that uniquely affect Goshen’s residents.

A series of three community conversations—all open to the public—will be held at various locations throughout the city this fall, each addressing a different theme that arose from participating members at a pilot conversation in April. The series of conversations is called “Growing Goshen Together” (GGT).

Jes Stoltzfus Buller, a skilled facilitator with significant experience in collaborative group dialogue, will host the conversations in a World Café format. This method of small group, round-table discussion offers an intimate setting that invites curiosity and helps build relationships, while giving everyone a chance to speak.

Interpretation will be offered at each table between English and Spanish, so that participants may share in whichever language is most comfortable for them. All information and introductory comments will also be provided in both English and Spanish.

After each conversation, the facilitator will write a report based on table notes and comments, and post-event surveys. The report will include highlights from the conversation about themes that emerged, as well as ideas or recommendations.

The information will serve as a springboard for the creation of an action plan in each area. Representatives from CRC, GCS and Goshen City will create a core action team and for each conversation/theme, conversation participants and key stakeholders will be invited to join. This team will evaluate the report and will come up with concrete next steps and follow-up plans.

“Goshen is that rare community where we not only say we embrace diversity, we live the values of acceptance, appreciation and celebration of diversity every day,” said Steve Hope, deputy superintendent at GCS and a member of the GGT series committee. “Also central to the mission of Goshen Community Schools, we are pleased to partner with the city’s Community Relations Commission in supporting this series of community conversations. At the heart of any vibrant and economically strong community is a strong school system. Through each conversation the Goshen Community Schools also learns and grows and is better able to support each and every one of our students.”

CRC and GCS began conversations in 2018 to brainstorm possibilities toward building bridges between diverse groups in the community. Recognizing diversity of all kinds throughout the city, they saw an opportunity for promoting tolerance, understanding and gratitude for all people. This led to a pilot community conversation, Growing Goshen Together, on April 25, 2019, held at Goshen High School. Responses from that event called for more conversations. Through continued conversations about the issues facing the Goshen community, CRC and GCS hope to continue fostering relationships throughout the Goshen community.

The following information offers details about the upcoming fall conversation series. A potential spring series is in the works, pending approval from the CRC.

A culture that learns: Our schools and community together • September 26, 2019 • 6–8 p.m. • Boys and Girls Club
Summary: This conversation will offer the opportunity to learn from the community’s schools, which are home to embodied diversity in Goshen, lived out in practice every day. The conversation will focus on what is going well in our schools and where growth is needed. How can our schools better serve the families in Goshen, and what is their role in the larger community?

How Goshen grows: Balancing power and raising up leaders • October 24, 2019 • 6–8 p.m. • Shanklin Park, Schrock Pavilion
Summary: This conversation will address leadership and power in the Goshen community.  Participants will have the opportunity to speak into successful balances of power and how that is created, as well as look at challenges to equalized power.  How does one access power and how does the community grow capacity and leadership to provide opportunities for shared power?

Who is Goshen: Telling our stories • November 14, 2019 • 6–8 p.m. • Boys and Girls Club
Summary: This conversation will provide space to get to know others in the community by listening and sharing about identity and the experiences that shape each person. How have our experiences shaped our values?  Bridging divides requires knowing one another—can we learn to know each other and move from strangers to friends?

You are under no circumstances allowed to lock your bike up to any fence or gate on school property.

There are bike racks available, and they should be used. Thank you for your cooperation with this!

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 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.

PASSING A STOPPED SCHOOL BUS IS AGAINST THE LAW! (English/Spanish)

August 7, 2019: Joint Press Release-Goshen Community Schools/Goshen Police Department

PASSING A STOPPED SCHOOL BUS IS AGAINST THE LAW!          

Students are heading back to school, which means people will be seeing school buses on our roads again. Indiana State Police (ISP) have reminded everyone about the importance of watching for stopping school buses while they are picking up and dropping off students. Do you know when to stop for a school bus? ISP created a helpful graphic (below) to make sure everyone is safe on their commute.

Two-Lane Roadways: If a school bus stops on a two-lane road and the red flashing lights are activated and the stop arm is extended, all motorists MUST stop.

Multi-Lane Roadways with NO Barrier between Lanes: When a school bus stops on a multi-lane roadway without a barrier and the red flashing lights are activated and the stop arm is extended, all motorists MUST stop.

Multi-Lane Roadway with a Grassy and/or Concrete Barrier: When a school bus stops and the red flashing lights are activated and the stop arm is extended, only vehicles behind the bus MUST stop. Vehicles that are approaching from the opposite side are NOT required to stop.

Senate Enrolled Act No. 2 Bill increases penalties for violating a stop arm from a Class B misdemeanor to a Class A misdemeanor. Additionally, penalties are raised from a Class A misdemeanor to a Level 6 felony for a stop-arm runner if the action results in injury, and to a Level 5 felony if the action results in death. The court may also suspend the motorist’s driving privileges for 90 days for a first offense, or, if the motorist has committed at least one previous school bus passing offense, for one year. Other requirements include:

•    School bus drivers deploying flashing warning lights and a stop arm when loading and unloading students.
•    Schools reviewing bus routes and safety policies.
•    The state Department of Education posting on its website school bus safety guidelines and how to petition to reduce maximum speed limits in areas where students are boarding or exiting school buses.
•    With some exceptions, prohibiting bus drivers from loading or unloading students at a location where they would need to cross a roadway, unless there are no other safe alternatives.

7 de agosto, 2019: Comunicado de prensa conjunto—Escuelas comunitarias de Goshen/Departamento de Policía de Goshen

 ¡PASAR UN AUTOBÚS ESCOLAR PARADO ES CONTRA LA LEY!

Los estudiantes regresan a la escuela esta semana, lo que significa que la gente volverá a ver los autobuses escolares en nuestras carreteras. La Policía del Estado de Indiana (ISP) le ha recordado a la comunidad la importancia de vigilar la parada de los autobuses escolares mientras recogen y dejan a los estudiantes. ¿Sabes cuándo parar si ves un autobús escolar? ISP creó un gráfico útil (a continuación) para asegurarse de que todos estén seguros en su viaje.

Carreteras de dos carriles: Si un autobús escolar se detiene en una carretera de dos carriles y las luces intermitentes rojas se activan y el brazo de detención se extiende, todos los automovilistas DEBEN detenerse.

Carreteras de carriles múltiples sin barrera entre carriles: Cuando un autobús escolar se detiene en una carretera de varios carriles sin barrera y las luces intermitentes rojas se activan y el brazo de detención se extiende, todos los automovilistas DEBEN detenerse.

Carretera de carriles múltiples con una barrera de césped y/o concreto: Cuando un autobús escolar se detiene y las luces rojas intermitentes se activan y el brazo de detención se extiende, solo los vehículos detrás del autobús DEBEN detenerse. NO se requiere que los vehículos que se aproximan desde el lado opuesto se detengan.

El acto inscrito Nº 2 del Senado aumenta las sanciones por violar un brazo de detención de un delito menor de Clase B a un delito menor de Clase A. Además, las penalizaciones se elevan de un delito menor de Clase A, a un delito grave de Nivel 6 para quien se pase un brazo de detención si la acción resulta en una lesión, y a un delito grave de Nivel 5 si la acción resulta en la muerte. La corte también puede suspender los privilegios de conducir del automovilista durante 90 días por una primera infracción o, si el automovilista ha cometido al menos una infracción previa por pasar del autobús escolar, durante un año. Otros requisitos incluyen:

  • Los conductores de autobuses escolares que despliegan luces intermitentes de advertencia y un brazo de detención cuando cargan y descargan estudiantes.
  • Escuelas que revisan rutas de autobuses y políticas de seguridad.
  • El Departamento de Educación del estado que publica en su sitio web las pautas de seguridad del autobús escolar y cómo solicitar la reducción de los límites de velocidad máxima en las áreas donde los estudiantes abordan o salen de los autobuses escolares.
  • Con algunas excepciones, prohibir que los conductores de autobuses carguen o descarguen estudiantes en un lugar donde tendrían que cruzar una carretera, a menos que no haya otras alternativas seguras.

CareerWise Youth Apprenticeship Signing Day-August 2nd

CareerWise Elkhart County is a Business-Led, Student-Centered Apprenticeship Program for high school students.

The public is invited to the press event for the Modern Youth Apprentice “Student Signing Day” on Friday, August 2 at 11:15 a.m. at Ivy Tech Community College, 22531 CR 18, Goshen, 46528 in the Community Room.

Along with a brief overview of CareerWise Elkhart County, attendees will hear from students and their employers. Students will sign a three-year commitment that includes high school credit, college credit, industry certifications and paid employment.

“Horizon Education Alliance (HEA) is pleased to support this collaboration between key businesses and all seven public school districts in Elkhart County”, said Brian Wiebe, HEA’s President. Beginning this school year, apprentices will be trained in modern occupations within the defined career pathways of business operations, advanced manufacturing, and information technology.

Employers participating in the apprenticeship program include DJ Construction, MapleTronics Computers, Goshen Health, Adorn Hardwoods, Interior Components, Kem Krest, Robert Weed Corp, Goshen Stamping, MapleNet Wireless, and Horizon Education Alliance. Additional businesses in Elkhart County have posted positions and will be hiring students by September 1.

“HEA has helped cultivate a system that has enabled implementation of youth apprenticeships in our county across all seven school districts starting with high school juniors. The CareerWise model is a global best-practice and a transformative learning opportunity and we are excited to collaborate with all of our partners to impact our youth”, said Jason Harrison, Vice President of Student and Adult Pathways.

“We just had Josh Belmont in for a tour and to meet Wes [Herschberger, MapleTronics CEO] and the rest of the team. We are excited to work with him in the coming years.” – Rich Troyer, MapleTronics Computers

“When I was in high school, I didn’t know what I wanted to do. I only knew it would be in business. I chose HR, having no idea what that meant. I didn’t enter an HR role until 20 years later. For me, I lucked out. How much better it would have been to have had a program like this. Now we do, thanks to all the work that has been done in our region to link industry and education.” – Cindy Grider, Robert Weed Corporation

The Student Signing Day event concludes the second day of the apprentices’ workplace boot camp— CareerWise’s training that prepares students for a professional workplace. The boot camp covers everything from executive-function skills like organization and task prioritization to the soft skills of working in teams, managing conflict and following employer dress codes.

“HEA is grateful to the Community Foundation of Elkhart County, whose support has been critical for our ability to launch this student apprenticeship initiative”, said Wiebe. “Beginning with our research trip to Germany and Switzerland in 2018, which involved county, regional and state leaders, we immediately understood the win-win nature of apprenticeships for both businesses and for high school students.”

CareerWise Elkhart County is based on the CareerWise Colorado model, which launched in 2016, and was based on best practices learned from their state’s trip to Switzerland in 2015. “We’re very pleased that along with New York City, Elkhart County is one of two spots in the nation that is being given the opportunity to launch CareerWise in the first phase of a national buildout”, said Harrison.

Recruitment of businesses interested in hiring youth apprentices is ongoing, and student recruitment for the 2020 cohort will begin this winter. If you are interested in becoming involved with CareerWise Elkhart County, please contact Breanna Allen, HEA Pathways Director, at ballen@heaindiana.org.

GCS Representatives Included in City of Goshen’s Storm Drain Art Project

Goshen Community Schools was well represented by artists in the Storm Drain Art Project held by the City of Goshen this spring. Two teachers, Rachel Weaver and Heather Potsander, as well as a Goshen High School graduate Katarina Antal, shared their artwork with our community to encourage protecting our local water resources.

The artists were selected by a committee from artwork submitted in February. Artists were tasked with submitting artwork which would draw the public’s attention to our local waterways and the need to protect them. Each selected artist was assigned a local storm drain and the adjacent sidewalk on which to paint their chosen piece. Painting on concrete is a challenge, but add in the rainy weather we have experienced this spring and these painters deserve even greater praise for completing such beautiful and amazing works of art.

Rachel Weaver teaches 6th-grade visual arts at Goshen Middle School. Her love of water came about at an early age. She grew up living by the river, and spending summers in nearby lakes swimming, canoeing, and kayaking. In high school, she took the marine biology class and became more aware of the importance of water preservation. Rachel felt this project was an excellent way to combine her love of water, education, and art. She also wanted to set an example for her students and allow them to see the message in our community. When sharing her inspiration for this project, Rachel said, “It is important to maintain the health of our nearby water sources not just for our own recreation, but for all who rely on it to survive.”

Heather Potsander is an art teacher at Parkside Elementary School and enjoys creating artwork with elements of surprise and hidden messages.  Such hidden or surprised elements can be found in Heather’s artwork for this project.  “I want people of all ages to experience the joy children have when encountering the unexpected,” says Potsander. The natural landscape, particularly that of the Millrace Canal Trail, inspires her work. A graduate of Goshen College, Potsander also teaches private art classes from her home in Goshen.  When not teaching, she may be found knitting, sewing, or drawing with her three children and their chickens.

Katarina Antal is a graduate of Goshen High School (class of 2017). Her passion for art and interest in the environment led her to study at Ball State University, where she is currently studying Landscape Architecture. As a young girl, Katarina Antal remembers exploring the Goshen dam pond, surrounding forest trails, and riding her bike down the mill race on beautiful summer days. Katarina appreciates the Goshen Community for its support of the arts by providing opportunities for artists to engage with the community. Katarina hopes her painting will be an inspiration to others in the Goshen Community.

6-10-19 Board Recognition

The following people were honored by the school board on Monday, June 10, 2019:

GMS English teacher Marilyn Torres stated that her class worked on an argumentative unit regarding Climate Change earlier this spring. The students were examining the Green New Deal and creating podcasts to present their argument or viewpoint about the Green New Deal. The podcasts were submitted to National Public Radio (NPR) as part of a contest to make their podcasts available through NPR. Out of the 6,000 entries throughout the U.S.A., two of the GMS podcasts were chosen for “Honorable Mention”. The students who created the podcasts were: Skye Steury, Sophia Kauffman, Isaac Stahly, and Laish Detwiler. Mrs. Torres had arranged to play a portion of each of the two podcasts for the school board.

GHS head baseball coach, JJ DuBois, assistant coach Clay Norris, and senior captain Drew Marlow were honored by the school board following their recognition by the IHSAA. This report was filed by IHSAA umpire Michael Murray:

“I had the great fortune of Umpiring a Varsity Baseball Game at Goshen High School on Saturday May 4, 2019 between Goshen and Northwood. It was a great game that went extra innings with Goshen prevailing against Northwood 2-1 in 9 innings. Both Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches and all players were very sportsmanlike and thanked me personally throughout the game, and if questions came up during the game they were very courteous and respectful. We had a couple of close plays in a close game but everyone handled each situation calmly and respectfully of one another. It was just a great atmosphere and what High School sports should always be about. I commend both schools and their administrations for setting a great example of how things should be done. It was a very enjoyable day. After the game was over, both teams shook our hands and thanked us too and that doesn’t always happen everywhere you go.”

Representatives from the GHS Advanced Jazz Band were also honored, following their State Finals finish this year.

And lastly, Assistant Superintendent Mrs. Tamra Ummel was honored by those in attendance for her years of service and dedication to Goshen Community Schools, on her last Monday night board meeting.

6/7/2019 Press Release

To the Goshen Community,

Our community has long thrived on strong partnerships and working together. On Monday, June 10th, the Goshen Fire and Police Departments will work together with Goshen Community Schools to conduct a training drill at Goshen High School. The training is scheduled to begin at approximately 1:00 p.m. and will continue for most of the afternoon. Some Goshen Community Schools staff have volunteered to participate in the drill. This allows Goshen Fire and Police Department to respond to a more realistic scenario. Because of other scenarios in the state of Indiana that have been reported, we want to be clear that no projectiles/plastic pellets will be used during this drill. The well-being and safety of our volunteers will be monitored at all times during the drill.

Additional Goshen Officers and Fire personnel who are not participating in the training will remain on duty during the training exercise, and there will be no lapse in response to calls for service from Goshen residents and businesses.

Signs will be posted along the roadway to alert passersby that training is being conducted at Goshen High School. Please spread the word, as we do not want any misperceptions of why first responders are at the school.

GPD and GFD are constantly training to better serve our community. This training exercise will allow the police and fire departments to train further, while also helping school staff see first-hand what could happen in an emergency. It is our greatest hope that our community never has to utilize what is learned in exercises like this; but there is value in training, and we will be prepared.

Thank you to everyone involved.

Sincerely,

 

Goshen Police Department

Goshen Fire Department

GCS 2018-19 Energy Savings

Below is a chart that gives evidence to the hard work GCS staff members and students did to conserve energy and save the school corporation money in 2018-19. The scores and percentages of savings are not a competition between schools, because some schools host more events than others and some schools are more energy-efficient than others. However, GCS is working on long-range plans to make all the schools as energy-efficient as possible!

2019 Retirees Video

Last week during the annual end of year celebration we were all impressed with a video honoring this year’s retirees made by Brian Sapp, GMTV & GTV teacher. The video showcases our wonderful staff who have given so much of their lives to our schools and highlights the Goshen Middle School choir directed by Marilyn Mason singing their rendition of “This Is Me” from The Greatest Showman.
