GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR MONDAY, MARCH 20, 2017                                 


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.

Seniors:  If you still need to order a cap and gown you can visit their web site at to place an order.  They will also be here on April 13th during the lunch periods.  Cap & Gown delivery day will be on May 2nd during SRT.

Attention wrestlers:  All after school meetings with Coach Pickard this week will be postponed until after spring break.  A new sign-up list will be posted.

Colton Holloman competed in the USA Gymnastics sanctioned Indiana State Men’s Championship on Saturday in Charlestown, Indiana and won the Junior Development Men’s All-around, making him the State Champion in his division!  Colton placed 1st on the pommel horse and high bar, 2nd on still rings and 3rd on the floor exercise.  He has qualified to represent Indiana for the Region 5 Championship in Frankenmuth, Michigan on April 8th.  Congratulations Colton!

Stay In Bounds Ambassadors who make their monthly visits on Tuesdays, remember that is TOMORROW.  You should meet Miss Swain at the welcome center immediately after 2nd period and be prepared to Limbo and play Zoom with Excellence!

Seniors who still haven’t filed the FAFSA:  Indiana has announced that the state’s March 10th FAFSA deadline will be extended until April 15th this year!  The process for families became more complicated this year due to a glitch in the IRS retrieval tool.  Students and their families can now go back in to file the FAFSA if they have not done so, or go back in if the tax import tool did not work for them.  Take advantage of this second chance to possibly qualify for funds from the State and/or Federal government for college!  Don’t miss this new deadline!

Congratulations to the Advanced Crimson Jazz Ensemble for a great performance at the ISSMA State Jazz Finals this past weekend!  The group was praised for its musicality and versatile performance of difficult music.

Congratulations to the Varsity Winter Guard on their incredible season!  They finished their season by earning the Bronze Medal at State Finals in Indianapolis on Saturday competing against 16 groups from across the state.  Their 3rd place finish is the highest ever for this group.  Way to go Winter Guard!

Come shop for a FREE prom dress!  The Junior League of South Bend, Inc. and Ziker Cleaners are partnering together once again to host Princess for a Night.  This event takes place at the Century Center in downtown South Bend on Saturday, April 1st from 8:00 a.m. to noon.  You are asked to arrive by 11:30 a.m. and please bring your student ID with you to the event.

It’s time for the annual GHS Prom Dress Drive!  This purpose of this drive is to provide free dresses for students who want to go to the prom but may be in financial need.  We have several dresses in various styles and sizes to choose from.  If you are in need of a prom dress or if you wish to donate a gently used dress, please contact Mrs. Hershberger or Mrs. Shakley.  You may also ask your SRT teacher for more information.

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 5:20 p.m. if you need a ride home.  It will pick you up at door M.  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.

The Goshen Band Boosters are hosting a shoe drive through April 9th and would love your help! They’re collecting gently used or new shoes which are then taken to other countries such as Haiti and given to micro-entrepreneurs.  The entrepreneurs refurbish the shoes into usable ones or other items of use and sell them to earn an income to help themselves and their families.  Take a look in your closets or wherever you may keep your shoes and see if you have a pair or two that you would be willing to donate.  You can even donate flip flops.  Bins will be placed around the school (as well as the Goshen area) that have a poster on them with the dos and don’ts of what is an acceptable shoe.  If you would like more information, or have any questions please feel free to contact Kristy Nissley at 

Please stop by the commons area (either by the cafeteria or outside the main office) during lunch if you are interested is speaking to the following:

  • 3/21    IUPUI
