GHS is offering an athletic physical exam night for GHS students on April 12th from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the new urgent care center on Elkhart Rd.  All students interested MUST sign up for an appointment time in advance with Mrs. Schrock in the GHS athletic office and pay $20 in advance.  If you cannot pay the $20, please see Mr. Kissinger for scholarship opportunities.  This is a great opportunity to complete your physical exam for the 2017-18 school year.

Attention Students and Staff:  Key Club is collecting travel-sized soap, shampoo and conditioner for families at Riley Hospital.  If you are traveling over Spring Break and have leftover personal items, you may bring them to the guidance office from April 10th through the 13th to be donated.

One Act auditions are TODAY after school in the auditorium.  Any and all students are welcome to audition!

All physical education and fitness classes are bowling this week. Students should be prepared to travel to Maple City Bowl by arriving to class on time with their money and permission slip. Students are expected to meet their teacher in the lobby by the weight room doors.  Any students who arrive late must report to the main office.

There are new scholarships in Guidance.  Please stop by for more information!

  • Consumer Credit College Scholarship
  • General Student Scholarships

Seniors: Many scholarships are due by April 1st.  If you need them sent in, please get them to Ms. Hollinger in the guidance office by TODAY to make sure that they get out before we leave for spring break.

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.

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!

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.

Super Mileage Club will meet TOMORROW at 7:00 a.m. and 3:40 p.m.

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 nissley1998@gmail.com.
