Cap & Gown Delivery Day – Monday, May 18, 4pm-7pm in GHS parking lot outside door M
- In order to make this contactless, students need to make sure their balances are paid in full before coming to pick up items. To find out if they owe a balance or to pay a balance over the phone by credit or debit card, students can contact Greg Muncy, our Jostens rep. Email: email@example.com or call during business hours 260-483-1825. Greg will be available to take payments on the 18th if students do not have access to a debit or credit card.
- If you cannot make it to the pickup, you can have a friend pick up your order as long as it is paid in full. Just make sure you text/email your friend that they have your permission to pick up the order. If you friend shows us the text/email through their car window, we will give them your order.
- If you never ordered a cap and gown, you can borrow one from a previous senior or you can still order one. Mr. Muncy will be charging $50 on the spot for late order caps and gowns. You should email him BEFORE pickup with your school, name, gender, height, and weight so he can make sure he brings a gown for you. You can also prepay late orders over the phone as well.
The City of Goshen is giving every graduate a TREE to plant to commemorate the craziness that is 2020. They will be in the parking lot May 18th passing out four different kinds of trees. Please read the attached flier for information on the kinds of trees available. If you/ your parents want a specific tree please fill out the google form so they bring the tree you request. Even if you live in an apartment or don’t have space for a tree, try to think of someone who COULD plant a tree and take one for them. Ten years from now your 2020 trees will be growing all over Goshen! Google form for tree choices: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeMUXnPjaMS8-gFIf_yubFrd6Otrym2L1-eVuuMxld19uqF1w/viewform?usp=sf_link
Calling all students! The Stratford Experience English Class will continue, although the Stratford Festival is closed for the upcoming year. We are making some changes this year so that we can still encounter Shakespeare’s plays as they were meant to be experienced! We will study plays, then have outdoor watch parties of the Stratford versions of the plays, and also watch pop-culture versions of original Shakespearean stories. This is the only year that you can take the Stratford Experience Class (worth an English credit) without any cost or need of a passport! Contact Ms. Shetler (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information and materials.

For all students interested in athletics next year, there has been a new ruling regarding physical exams. The IHSAA has decided that this year’s physical exams will not expire until the end of the 2020-2021 school year. You will still need to complete your code of conduct and the concussion/head injury forms, but you do NOT need a new physical exam if you had one this year. For those who did not submit a physical exam this year, you will need a new exam before you can participate in any activities.
Athletic coaches are planning for resumption of activities, but the date is floating due to COVID. Our best guess is after June 30, but there is a chance that June 14 will be the date. Stay tuned.
Locker clean-out, book return, and computer return: We are working on scheduling times for student to return to the building and clean out lockers and return items. Please stay tuned for updates!
Work permits can be done at Central Office at this time.
The GHS Yearbook staff would love you to take the survey below about what you’ve been doing during quarantine. Please answer all the questions so that we can include graphs, charts, and multiple responses. Also, please be checking your email for more requests from the Yearbook staff! Stay safe and have fun! https://forms.gle/bLpxkxvKothr8hLT9
Students, if you are having trouble with your school laptop, you are welcome to email your school computer support at; GHS_TRC@goshenschools.org (Notice there is an underscore after GCS, that is not a blank space.) If you are having trouble with a lesson, please contact your teacher. Contact GHS_TRC@goshenschools.org for things like; it will not power on, the charger is not working, the screen does not work, a computer program will not open (like Chrome or Word), sound or mic not working, things like that.
- PLEASE try to do a full power off, wait at least a minute, then power back on, to see if that fixes the issue. That truly can fix a multitude of issues.
- Please include your full name and email address we can reply to.
- Please describe in detail the issue. Please don’t just say it does not work.
- If there is a pop up message what exactly does it say?
- If you can use the snipping tool to take screen shots of error messages that is very helpful. Just search for the word snip and you should find that.
Please email Jamie Lehman at firstname.lastname@example.org where you would like your final transcript sent to for the college/university choice in the Fall.
