GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2016
Fan appreciation nights at athletic events start next week in conjunction with senior nights. On Monday, two slices of pizza will be given to any GHS student who comes to the tennis match at GMS against Memorial. The match starts at 4:30 p.m. and any student who supports the team from 4:30-5:00 p.m. will get some pizza!
On Tuesday night, cross country senior night and fan appreciation night starts at 5:30 p.m. vs. Northridge and Plymouth. Any high school student in attendance at 6:00 p.m. will be offered pizza. Boys soccer hosts Wawasee at 6:45 p.m. for their senior night/fan appreciation. Pizza will be served halfway through the varsity game. Go Big Red!
From Mrs. Pierce: The theme is red-out this week! Because Mrs. Bruder and Mrs. Swihart’s classes are the only ones participating in the 7th period competition we are going to judge a different period tomorrow. 3rd PERIOD is the lucky period! If your teacher e-mails me I will come visit your class!
The boys soccer program is hosting a pork, rice, and bean dinner (chip and salsa included) as a fundraiser this Saturday from 5:00-7:00 p.m. in the high school cafeteria. See any boys soccer player for tickets. Come out for a good dinner with your family and friends and then head out to our girls soccer home game!
The volleyball apparel web store is now available! Items include shirts, sweatshirts, shorts, hats and more. This store is open now and will close at midnight on Sunday, September 18th, so get your items while you can! The link for the store is: http://tinyurl.com/jcasjzy.
Last week the Goshen News and Mayor Stutsman released more information about the Goshen City Council Youth Advisor position. This position will be elected by the GHS student body. If you are a senior and are interested in running for this position, please see Mrs. Clark in room 2280.
IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: Are you playing high school sports for the pure pleasure of your sport, or are you using your high school experience as a stepping stone to college sports? Getting to the college level can be very challenging. Take football for example. There are 774 college football teams (in all divisions). Most states have anywhere from 200-450 high schools that have a football program. Those numbers show the challenges facing today’s high school athletes who want to move on and play at the college level. This ratio remains about the same, regardless of your sport. The odds are stacked against you. That’s why you should take the time and make the effort to enjoy high school sports. Your sporting days could come to an end at any time!
Any student wanting to apply for free/reduced lunch this school year will need to have the forms filled out and turned in before Monday, September 19th. Forms are available in the main office from Mrs. Haney, the bookkeeper.
