GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2016                                  

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

The Advanced Child Development field trip has been cancelled and all students need to report to class at the beginning of 4th period…..do not go to A lunch.

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!

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 September 19th.  Forms are available in the main office from Mrs. Haney, the bookkeeper.

Any student interested in doing Merit on the Move should contact their guidance counselor.  Merit on the Move is an opportunity to earn a credit you are missing after school with an Apex course. Merit on the Move will start TOMORROW at 3:45 p.m. in the Apex Lab, room 1060.  There are still a few spots open.  If you are interested, talk to your counselor ASAP.  The class meets Wednesdays and Thursdays after school in the Apex room.

If you missed Herff Jones, they will return on Thursday from 7:45-8:15 a.m. to take cap and gown/graduation orders.  Students, GET YOUR ORDERS IN to avoid late fees!
