GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2016
The pedestrian sidewalk has been removed from 9th Street and Logan. You can no longer cross the tracks there. If you need to cross the tracks, please take Washington to 8th Street and then cross over the Lincoln Ave. railroad tracks. Goshen Police Dept. has had several reports of students disregarding the signs that are posted and crossing at 9th Street and Logan. If you continue to cross there, you will be cited by the police department for trespassing on railroad property. This is a safety issue, as some students have almost been hit by passing trains. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
All physical education and fitness classes at GHS will be swimming through Friday at the new aquatics facility on the Goshen Middle School campus. Students should be prepared to travel to GMS by arriving to class on time with proper swimming clothes.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: Have you ever been in a situation in the classroom or in a sport where you thought about giving up? What brought the situation about? Was the class too hard? In your sport, were you lacking playing time or not playing at all? Regardless of your circumstances, it can be frustrating when things look bleak. How can you change your approach to help your frustration? A quote I saw on a poster when recently entering a gymnasium says it best. “You are not finished when you lose. You are finished when you quit.” The next time you think about giving up, remember this quote. You might not always win, but by not quitting you will never lose!
MEETINGS DURING SRT:
On Thursday, March 3rd there will be a final meeting during the 2nd session of SRT for those students interested in being on the Unified Track & field team as a student partner. All students are welcome, but winter and fall student-athletes not in a spring sport are prime candidates for this since they already have all of their paperwork completed.
