Goshen High School, Goshen Middle School and Goshen Health Systems will combine efforts again this spring to offer $20 athletic physical exams to all incoming 6th-12th grade students. These physical exams will be performed by Goshen Health Systems health providers and will take place at Goshen Orthopedics and Rehabilitation Center off of CR 27 (Dierdorff Road) in Goshen. The event will take place from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Monday, April 16th. Appointments for the exams must be made in advance. If we don’t fill all the spots, walk-ins will be allowed at the end of the evening. For Goshen students, parents should contact Mrs. Jan Schrock at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 533-0652 to make an appointment. It is very important that parents complete the health historical page in detail before the students can begin the physical exam process. Forms can be picked up at the GMS or GHS athletic offices or online at goshenredhawks.org under the More Tab. The money collected from this event are used to pay for GHS training room supplies and a scholarship for a training student. However, no student will be turned away for price. Please let Mrs. Schrock know of your need when you make your appointment.

Staff and students who are traveling over Spring Break are encouraged to bring their unused, travel-sized soap, shampoo and conditioner to the Guidance Office for donation. Other acceptable items include travel-size deodorant, lotion, shaving cream, toothpaste, mouthwash and contact lens solution. Key Club appreciates your support of Riley Hospital!
REMINDER: The recycling bins (the ones with black lids with small holes) around the school are to be used for recycling only. These are NOT regular trash cans. Thank you in advance for placing things where they are supposed to go.
It is that time of year again for the annual GHS Prom Dress Drive! The 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.
Don’t miss the Talent Show on Friday, April 13th from 7:00-9:00 p.m.
Recycle Caps-to-Benches Update:
- Reminder: This is the last week! All plastic caps/lids must be turned in before Spring Break to be counted towards the competition! The winning SRT has their choice of pizza or homemade cinnamon rolls.
- A shout out to the TOP FIVE SRTs currently (in no particular order): Mr. Brubaker, Mr. Caskey, Mr. Clark, Mr. Smuts, and Mrs. Wertz. Many other SRTs in the running so everybody keep donating.
- We have a little over 200 pounds so far…. We need 400 pounds for a bench. Even after Spring Break we will be collecting the caps/lids.
- Please be sure the plastic caps/lids are clean & dry.
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. 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.
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.
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. Please bring completed forms to the main office in the morning and they will be completed by the end of the school day.
Online yearbook sales are set up! All you have to do is go to www.yearbookordercenter.com and enter our school code (14723) to order your yearbook or yearbook ad.
Just a reminder that if you are coming to see Ms. Tovar you need to check in with the staff in the main office and fill out a request to see her. She will send a white pass for you as she has time. Please do not cut through the nurse’s office to get to her. You need to enter through the main office.
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:
