Attention all seniors:  Jostens representatives will be delivering graduation products during SRT tomorrow in the concession stand.  You will need to stop by and pick up your order!  Only cash or a money order will be accepted at delivery if you owe a balance.  Sorry no checks.  Orders MUST be picked up on this day.

Key Club and Kona Ice will be selling shaved ice during tomorrow’s home track meet.  Shaved ice is available in 10 flavors for $3 to $5 per cup.  Refillable cups are also available.  Come out and support the boys track team and Key Club!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Most coaches tell their athletes to be careful about their content when it comes to tweeting.  Let’s face it, it’s more fun to tweet about success instead of failure.  However, if you are a high school athlete, chances are you will have more subpar moments than successful ones.  It’s part of being an athlete.  PGA golfer Ricky Fowler had one of those bad moments in the first round of the Masters, shooting a high score and giving himself no chance of winning.  Critics were making fun of his high-top golf shoes.  His tweet said, “I was always taught if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all.”  How do you react to negative comments and subpar games?  Most of us are sensitive and care about how others perceive us.  Can you react in a positive way and make no excuses?  Whether you tweet or not, don’t say anything that you might regret later.  Failure can be a part of any sporting event and it is nothing to be ashamed of!

Attention all GHS students:  The day you’ve all been waiting for has arrived!  The Mr. GHS buckets start this week.  There will be a different category for each day. Instead of voting on the traditional physical features of our contestants, this year you will vote on the following: favorite movie, favorite quote, favorite food, favorite cartoon, ideal superhero duo and best baby picture.  All of the proceeds from the buckets go to the boys’ choice charities.  So throw your spare change in their buckets during lunch!

The Goshen Public Library doesn’t just lend books!  We also offer FREE activities for young adults.  Stop in on Thursdays after school from 4:00-6:00 p.m. to hang out, study, find an independent reading book, play a board game, color or just chillax at the teen café!  And, of course, we’ll also have hot chocolate and coffee.  Our next Weebz Anonymous Manga Club meeting will be Wednesday, April 20th from 4:00-5:00 p.m. and the Courageous Pages Writing Club is on Wednesday, April 27th from 4:00-6:00 p.m. in the teen area.  Our regular monthly programming also continues on Friday, April 15th from 4:30-6:30 p.m. with our Nerd’s Night Out program where you can test yourself and your friends with a variety of teen challenges… party included!  Then, our Pages & Popcorn club meets on Thursday, April 21st from 5:30-8:00 p.m.  We’ll talk about the classic spooky R.L Stine books and watch the movie, Goosebumps.  Finally, our regular programming will conclude this month with our Crafty Bandits club, where we’ll smash flowers to make cards.  To sign up or for more information about our programs, stop by the library or check out our GPL Teens webpage, Facebook or Twitter.
