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 and payments must be made in advance. You may sign up in the athletic offices at the GHS and the GMS. Payments of $20 and physical forms should be brought along when making your appointment. If we don’t fill all the spots, walk-ins will be allowed at the end of the evening.

The money collected from this event is 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 or Mrs. Egli know of your need when you make your appointment.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: There were many interesting stories coming out of Augusta National last week during the playing of golf’s most prestigious tournament, the 2018 Masters. Patrick Reed was the winner, with Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth finishing 2nd and 3rd. However, it’s what Spieth said after his round that really surprised me. He said he played the entire day without ever looking at the scoreboard. He played for over five hours without knowing how anyone else was scoring, but himself. This process is somewhat common in individual sports. Players this past week said over and over that they only focused on their own game and what they could control. No need worrying about the opponent. In team sports the participants are constantly looking at the time and score. Strategy and game plans depend on those circumstances. However, professional golfers and others that play individual sports will tell you there’s no need to worry about the opponent and what they are doing. They will tell you to concentrate on the things that you can control, and don’t worry about the others!
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.
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.
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.
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, yearbook, 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.
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.

MEETINGS DURING SRT:
Stay In Bounds Ambassadors meet TODAY during the 2nd session of SRT in the main gym to plan for our last formal visits, which will be the following week assuming there are no conflicts at the schools. Please notify Mr. Kissinger in advance if you have any conflicts.
There will be a meeting for all students interested in IB and AP art next Tuesday during the 2nd session of SRT in room 1450. All students interested in this please attend – especially 10th and 11th graders who are seeking a great course for serious art students who want a higher level of art work and expectations with college credit.
Before we finish up our “Year of Giving”, we have one last project to complete. We decided way back when that promoting a Bike to Work/School Week would be a good idea. We need to meet to discuss and plan this event. Please plan to attend next Thursday, April 19th in Mrs. Morrical’s room (1311) during the 2nd session of SRT if you are interested in helping out.
