Thursday evening three of our GHS choirs participated in the ISSMA district contest.  Each choir is scored by several adjudicators both in performance and in sight-reading.  Crimson Choir received an overall silver award with a gold rating in sight-reading.  Crimson Chorus and Advanced Crimson Chorale received overall gold ratings.  These choirs are directed by Katie Miller O’Leary, Steve Snyder and Monica Stutzman.  Congratulations to all who participated!

Attention SENIORS:  Please stop by the guidance department and pick up forms to let us know what college you would like your final transcript sent to, and to fill out a form for any scholarships that you have received.

Attention Seniors: Goshen College will be here TOMORROW in Guidance from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.  This is the time for you to answers your questions regarding your enrollment process, scholarships or financial aid or any paperwork pending!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Sometimes off-season workouts can become boring and monotonous.  With summer approaching, have you given any thought as to how you will approach your training and conditioning while not being in school?  Call it the buddy system if you wish, but working out with a teammate, brother or sister, or an up and coming underclassman, makes the time go faster and the hard work seem easier.  So whether it’s heading to the gym for individual workouts, or out running for conditioning, or heading to the weight room for your weight training, try to find someone with similar goals to workout with you.  By finding that right person, you can hold each other accountable and reach your full potential while still having fun and trying to make each other better!

If you are a current junior, and have an interest in politics and our community, you should consider running for the Goshen City Council Youth Advisor position.  The election is open to any junior and will be held May 22nd at GHS.  If you have any questions please see Mr. Weldy in 2360 or talk to Jason Barahona.  All interested candidates can pick up an information packet from Mr. Weldy.

French Club:  Chicago Trip permission slips are due TOMORROW!  Please drop them off with M. Hobbs or Mlle Mack.
