Boys soccer C team players, just a reminder that you have a game TODAY at Penn at 6:00 p.m.  It’s an away game so you need to have your white socks.  We are planning to leave at 4:00 p.m.   Meet in the locker room by the main gym right after school.

Thanks for all your support of our GHS athletic teams and your classmates this first week of the season!  Don’t forget to pick up your activity cards in the bookkeeper’s office for $40 and that will be your pass into all GHS regular season home games.  You can also purchase a five game pass directly from the athletic office for $20 to be used at any sport, except football and boys basketball.  As we offered with the football scrimmage, B soccer, and volleyball, we are going to have two games this week with FREE admission if you show your school ID.   On Thursday, the girls soccer team has their first home match vs. Mishawaka Marian.  On Saturday, the JV football team opens their season with a 10:00 a.m. game vs. Elkhart Central.  Your student ID will gain you free admission, even if you do not yet have an activity card, so come out and cheer on your classmates and meet up with friends.  Starting next week, all football, soccer, and volleyball will charge admission.  Go Big Red!

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, registration, proof of insurance and $5.  OJ will start tagging vehicles without parking permits after August 31st, so DON’T delay!

Attention ceramics students from spring semester last school year:  Please pick up your work on the back porch of the ceramics room in 1450.  There are many very nice pieces that you probably would want to have. We will be getting rid of them if you don’t get them by THIS week.  It would be a lovely gift to someone if you don’t want them!

Do you want to get involved at school? The theater department might be good for you! Drama Club is a chance to act with upperclassman, teachers, and special guests with first-hand experience!

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 3:55 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.

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.
