IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Super Bowl 51 was Tom Brady’s fifth title.  His leadership and grit helped lead his team back from a 28-3 deficit.  This game will no doubt seal Brady’s legacy as the best quarterback to ever play the game.  However, Brady still realizes he is part of the team and not the team.  When asked why there has never been any friction between him and his coach, Brady answers quite simply, “He’s the coach, I’m the player.”  That simple philosophy is a quality that all athletes should take to heart.  Do you listen to your coach?  Do you let outside influences affect your attitude towards your coach?  If your coach asks you to do something, do you abide?  The most successful teams are those that believe in their coach and the system he/she runs!

Please join us for a college visit to Ivy Tech in Elkhart!  This is first come, first serve as space is limited.  Priority will be given to upperclassman.  See Ms. Gomez (2370) or Mrs. Stamatovich (JAG) to pick up and turn in permission slips.  PERMISSION SLIPS ARE DUE FEBRUARY 24th!

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  Thank you for your help!

Any girl who is interested in trying out for the GHS softball program needs to complete all athletic paper work before coming to open field workouts.  The open field schedule is posted on the Goshen Softball website.  Tryouts will officially begin on March 6th.  If you have any questions contact Coach Kulp.  We hope to see you there!  Go Hawks!
