The Be the Best Leadership Workshop for sophomore student-athletes is TOMORROW during 2nd period and the 1st session of SRT in the auditorium. Thanks to the 90+ sophomores who have signed up for this fun workshop geared towards using integrity to help prevent bullying/hazing in our schools. All sophomores who signed up should report directly to the auditorium TOMORROW with a writing utensil. Do NOT go to 2nd period.
REMINDER: 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. Starting TODAY, 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.
Starting TODAY, students who bring athletic equipment or winter guard equipment like drill rifles, tennis racquets, golf clubs, or baseball/softball bats, are required to leave them in their cars. If they do not have a vehicle in which to store them during the school day, they are welcome to bring them into the building, but must drop them off in their coach’s class, the athletic office, or the music/band offices. Thanks for your cooperation for keeping these implements out of the GHS hallways.
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, 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.
Winter coats are here courtesy of the United Way and Goshen Community Schools Winter Coat Give-Away! If you need a coat for the winter or know someone who does, stop by the Goshen Schools Administration Building at 613 E. Purl St. from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday-Friday. If you are unable to come during those times, call 971-4149 to arrange a time.
Homework help is available every Tuesday and Thursday in the media center from 3:45-5:00 p.m. A bus will be available around 5:10 p.m. (5:20 p.m. on Tuesdays) if you need a ride home. 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.
ATTENTION ALL SRT CLASSES: We will have a competition between all of the SRT’s to see who can collect the most bottle caps. There will be bins in each SRT classroom and the caps will be collected every week. The winning SRT with the most caps will get HOMEMADE CINNAMON ROLLS or a PIZZA PARTY! The competition will end before Spring Break. If we collect 400 pounds as a school, we will be able to recycle them into a park bench. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to save the environment and win a prize! If you would like to collect or sort caps during SRT contact Mrs. Swihart in room 2200 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. It will count for NHS volunteer hours and it looks great on college applications!
