GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR FRIDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2015
Students: If you will miss a final exam, you will be expected to make it up after Christmas Break unless you have an administrator’s approval to take the exam early.
Sports Performance will be offered for all athletes not in a winter sport through Christmas break. It will be offered on Mondays and Thursdays from 4-5:00 p.m. in the Warehouse. You should change in the weight room locker rooms and take all your things with you over to the Warehouse. If there are questions, contact Coach Clark or Coach Smeltzer. You must have a sports physical and concussion paperwork on file with the Athletic Department before participating.
We will have extended media hours for tutoring on December 7th, 9th, 14th and 16th. You can get help, study or just do homework from 3:45-5:00 p.m. You need to be in the media center by 3:45 p.m. any day you attend.
Anyone interested in playing volleyball intramurals can stop by the athletic office and pick up a team or individual registration form. Games will be played through January here at GHS. Each player will receive a t-shirt and the winner of each league will get a pizza party. Each player will have a fee of $8. This fee will cover any intramurals that you participate in this year (volleyball, soccer, basketball). Forms and money are due to Mrs. West in the athletic office by the end of the day Friday, December 11th. For more information see Mrs. West or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Starting Monday, line 4 will become the Combo Line. You will be able to choose two different items from a selection of soup, salad or a sandwich. Fresh fruit, veggies and milk will also be available. Chef salads and PB&J sandwiches will be available in the snack room. Also starting Monday, sliced fresh fruit will be offered on line 2. This will include cored and sliced apples or orange wedges. Whole fruit will still be available on lines 1 and 3. Please remember to check your lunch account balance online. You can deposit money and check your balance at www.myschoolbucks.com. This is a free service!
Did you forget to turn in your senior announcement order? Jostens representatives will be returning on Tuesday from 10:00-10:45 a.m. in the commons to take FINAL graduation products and cap/gown/tassel unit orders. Announcement packets are available in the main office or see all of Jostens products at www.jostens.com.
All sophomore student-athletes from any season are encouraged to participate in the Be the Best workshop on January 12th in the auditorium during 2nd period and SRT. Please sign up before break at the athletic office or with Mr. Kissinger on Thursdays when he is on lunch duty. This is great morning of activities with fellow student-athletes on current events in sports, leadership activities, integrity and bullying/hazing prevention. Excuses vs. Excellence? Choose excellence by participating!
IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: What’s your mental approach when you are in a slump or having trouble getting playing time? Do you sulk? Do you feel sorry for yourself? Do you blame the coach or take accountability? How do you react in game time situations, especially in rival games? Gary Danielson, color commentator for CBS and former college (Purdue) and professional quarterback, said something during a recent broadcast that makes plenty of sense. “In the biggest games it’s the littlest things that make all the difference.” Sometimes when we look at the big picture, we forget about all the little things that can lead to success. Pay attention to those little things along the way to lift yourself up when it really counts!
Ski Club packets are still available in Mrs. Clark’s room, 2280. Make sure to pick yours up! Paperwork and money are due on Monday, December 14th.
TODAY during lunch there will be a table set up in the commons by the yearbook staff. Stop by to give us your ideas!
