GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR FRIDAY, MAY 26, 2017                                


Have a great summer……we will see you in August!

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.  If you are getting one over summer break, please refer to the sign posted at door M as to what our summer hours are.

If you still need to pick up your graduation tickets see Mrs. Stealy or Miss Huicochea in the main office.

In addition to all the summer athletic opportunities offered by our coaching staff, the GHS athletic department will again offer PiYo every Wednesday starting May 31st through June 28th from 10:30-11:30 a.m. in the warehouse.  All perspective student-athletes and GHS staff are welcome to take advantage of this awesome one hour workout that focus on balance and core work.

If you need a summer opportunity calendar for your sport, see Mr. Kissinger in the athletic office or check the GHS website for your sport!

All seniors and juniors graduating early must attend graduation practice on the last day of school. The practice is TODAY at 2:30 p.m. in the main gym.  You do not need to wear your cap and gown – just come to the main gym at that time.  Seniors not graduating or not planning to walk at graduation will remain in their SRT room at that time.

Reminder for Graduates of 2017:  Your school Gmail account will be closed soon after graduation…..probably by August.  If you want to save any files out of your Google Drive or Gmail you will need to copy or move those before August.

Seniors:  If you ordered items and missed the cap & gown delivery day, please e-mail Mrs. Gardner to make arrangements to pick up your items.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Every high school student-athlete faces challenges–in the classroom, in their sport, and even at home.  It seems like there is always an obstacle to overcome.  Research is clear that it really does pay to be positive during difficult times.  The benefits include enhanced health and longevity, happiness, career advancement, and athletic performance.  Writer Jon Gordon says that “positive people who regularly express positive emotions are more resilient when facing stress, challenges and adversity.”  How can you become a more positive person?  Tasting success in the classroom and on the athletic field will help, but should not be the determining factor.  Try and make each day positive not only for you, but for someone else, as well!

Seniors: If you are going to college this fall and have not filled out a green sheet that was passed around during M & M day, please stop in the guidance office to let them know what school they should send your final transcript to.  Please also let guidance know if you have received any scholarships.  Thank you!

If you are enrolled in summer school and need bussing, please contact transportation to make arrangements at 533-7176.

Juniors:  Don’t forget to turn in your consent form if you are planning to take part in the Work Ethic Certification program during your senior year.  Forms are available in the main office with Mrs. Wolfe.

The Elkhart County 4-H Fair will host Education Day on Friday, July 21st. On Education Day, all students can get into the 4-H Fair at no cost until 3:00 p.m. by just showing your 2016-17 school ID!  College students are also included in the promotion.  Students must enter at the main gate. There will be displays from local colleges, educational things for you to do (including drones that you can fly) and local high school groups will perform throughout the day.

REMINDER FROM THE CAFETERIA:  For the rest of the school year you will not be permitted to charge to your lunch account.

Need a health credit?  GHS is offering health this summer.  The class will be on Apex, and will be here at GHS.  See your counselor if you are interested in signing up.

This year is the first year that summer PE will be offered to high school students.  You have until TODAY to enroll.  Summer PE runs from June 5th through the 28th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The cost to enroll is $80.  Students must provide their own transportation.

The good news:  Next year students from GHS will be visiting Italy and Spain over Spring Break.  The better news is that there is still room for a few more adventurers!  If you will be a junior or senior next year, and you’re interested in exploring the Vatican as well as the streets of Rome, Florence and Barcelona, see Mr. Zuber in room 8080 for more information.

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, Mr. Brubaker or from Lucas Kauffman.  The paperwork should be turned in to Lucas Kauffman the first time you attend.

Homework help will not be available after school this week.  You will have SRT time to finish up on assignments.
