GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2017                                   


All GHS students with a current year ID will gain free admission to TOMORROW night’s home boys basketball game vs. Mishawaka.  Come and cheer on the RedHawks!

All freshmen in a winter sport who are in their first season of athletics at GHS need to report to the cafeteria immediately after school TOMORROW for the Be the Best Leadership Program.  The session will run from 3:45-4:45 p.m.  Thank you, and Go RedHawks!

REMINDER:  The Richard Lugar Scholarships are due in Guidance TOMORROW.

Any current freshmen, sophomore and junior football players should see Coach Weldy this week in 2360 to sign up to work concessions next Saturday, December 9th at the boys basketball game.

Attention Students:  Herff Jones will be here on Tuesday, December 12th before school for class ring delivery, and for senior orders for caps and gowns, graduation announcements and other senior items.  Extra packets are available in the main office.

With ISTEP testing starting next week, we need to make sure that your laptops are ready.  Please see your SRT teacher and they will give you the info to login to the testing accounts on your computers.

Starting next week, December 5th through Christmas break, any student interested in pole vaulting for the boy’s and girl’s track teams can attend open vault sessions in the warehouse on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00-7:00 p.m.  Coach Place will be there to provide his coaching expertise along with our senior returning letter winner and Conference, Sectional and Regional Champion, as well as State Qualifier Lucas De Moya and other top vaulters from last season.  This is a great opportunity to try a challenging event.  Please be on time and be ready to participate.  Contact Coach Clark or Willis if you have any questions.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  How was your Thanksgiving break?  Did you have an opportunity to give your mind and body some rest?  If you are playing a winter sport, a free day or two is very useful during this time of year.  However, now is the time to buckle down again.  Don’t slack in the classroom.  Make it a point to pay close attention to your grades, you only have a few weeks until winter break.  Is your team off to a good start in November?  Don’t slack on the court, in the pool or the wrestling room.  Strive to improve daily.  The season flies by so quickly and you don’t want to look back when it’s over with any regrets.  Preparation today provides positive results tomorrow.  Make sure that you are doing your part every day to improve yourself and your teammates.  Those that don’t may find themselves falling behind with little or no time to catch up!

Scripts are due back from all actors in the fall play by TOMORROW.  If you wish to purchase your script, you need to bring $10 to room 1400 by TOMORROW as well.

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:  If you are a student interested in Marine Biology, the down payment and application are due TOMORROW.  Turn these in to Mrs. Weaver in room 3070 or 3030, the Science office.

Goshen Community Schools will host three public meetings to further explain the Strategic Planning Facilities Committee recommendation to the school board.  Their recommendation was to proceed with building a new 5-8 Intermediate School on the school-owned property at SR 119 and Greene Road, and to convert the current Goshen Middle School to a 5-8 Intermediate School as well.  Please plan to attend one of the meetings listed below to learn more about the rationale that led to this recommendation and to give your input.  There will be table group discussions held following the presentation in order to receive feedback from the public.  Meetings will be held at these locations and times:

  • Monday, December 4th at 7:00 p.m. at the Goshen High School Cafeteria
  • Tuesday, December 12th at 6:00 p.m. at the Goshen Middle School Cafeteria

Anyone interested in Ski Club for the 2018 season needs to see Mrs. Clark in room 2280.  Forms and money are due by December 15th.

ATTENTION ALL SRT CLASSES:  We will have a competition between all of the SRT’s to see who can collect the most bottle caps.  Starting this week, there will be bins in each SRT classroom and the caps will be collected every week. The winning SRT with the most caps will get HOMEMADE CINNAMON ROLLS or a PIZZA PARTY!  The competition will end before Spring Break.  If we collect 400 pounds as a school, we will be able to recycle them into a park bench.  Don’t miss out on this opportunity to save the environment and win a prize!  If you would like to collect or sort caps during SRT contact Mrs. Swihart in room 2200 or email her at  It will count for NHS volunteer hours and it looks great on college applications!
