GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2017
Any GHS student that needs a winter jacket can stop by the administration building.
REMINDER: Students are to wear their IDs at all times. You MUST have your ID to purchase a lunch in the cafeteria. If you forget your ID you can get one at the Welcome Center for $1. If you need a lanyard they are $1, or we can provide string for free.
Marine Biology seminars begin on Monday evening, March 13th and continue on Saturday mornings and Monday evenings until the Marine Biology trip. All Monday evening meetings are from 7:00-9:00 p.m. and all Saturday morning meetings are from 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Your attendance at these meetings is expected! Conflicts need to be worked out ahead of time. See the Weavers if you have questions.
IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: This is boys basketball sectional week. Past history says it’s a week of surprises. Will we have a snowstorm? What ranked team will be the first out? What school will provide the biggest shock of the week? Is your school a favorite or the underdog to take the sectional crown? There is nothing more fun than participating in an event that the whole school gets behind. Whether it’s a school play, a choral event or a team advancing along in a state tournament, it’s fun to be involved as the excitement grows and the event arrives. As a member of your student body, make it a point to get involved in the week’s festivities. The support shown by the students might make a difference in the outcome of that close game. History could be made and the memories from those exciting games could be something that you remember and talk about fifty years later!
You can sign-up for Intramural Volleyball through Thursday. The cost is $8, or $3 if you have played Intramurals this year and do not want a new shirt. For more information and/or to get forms see Mr. Wolf in 2150 or Mr. Lucas Kauffman. Registration forms can also be picked up from the main office or the athletic office, but must be turned in to the Intramural directors.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your help!
