Lifeguarding classes begin THIS week at the Aquatic Center.  If you are interested in becoming a lifeguard, need recertified or are interested in a summer job, check out the Aquatic Center website at aquatics.goshenschools.org.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Have you ever had a coach make the comment to you or a teammate by saying the words “you are thinking too much”?  If so, what would those words mean to you?  It more than likely means that you are “overthinking” or not playing by natural instincts.  Sports are played best by those who think less and play naturally.  In other words, a baseball or softball player might overthink their time at bat by waiting for a perfect pitch.  Regardless of the sport, there is always a scenario where “overthinking” is a detriment, rather than a plus.  Try to relax in those stressful situations and rely on those natural instincts.  Focus on your role, your training and how your coach has instructed you.  If you block out all other distractions, you will be free to play to your best ability and do what comes naturally!

The guidance office has just received the Dee Watson Nursing Scholarship.  Stop in to pick up an application.

Thank you to everyone who has signed up for this Friday’s blood drive.  Please make sure to check your email for important information.  If anyone else would still like to sign-up, see Mrs. Clark in room 2280.

The Goshen Community Schools Foundation is a privately funded educational grant program that strives to improve the innovation and creative experiences for the students of Goshen Community Schools.  Founded in 2008 by several Goshen Schools alumni, the Foundation has been able to raise more than $83,000 towards this effort.  We invite you to join us in this quest to assist our area students and teachers.  This year’s Thank-A-Teacher project is underway.  You, your parents, or someone you know in the community may contribute to a special teacher.  Any amount is accepted and a thank you note is sent to the teacher.  Pass along the word and honor your favorite teacher!  http://goshenschoolsfoundation.org/

The Ultimate Frisbee Club meets after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:45-5:00 p.m. on the administration field.  If you’re interested in learning how to play the sport of Ultimate Frisbee, you can pick up your required paperwork from Mr. Snyder in the choir office, Mr. Brubaker or from Lucas Kauffman.  The paperwork should be turned in to Lucas Kauffman the first time you attend.

It’s time for the annual GHS Prom Dress Drive!  This purpose of this drive is to provide free dresses for students who want to go to the prom but may be in financial need.  We have several dresses in various styles and sizes to choose from.  If you are in need of a prom dress or if you wish to donate a gently used dress, please contact Mrs. Hershberger or Mrs. Shakley.  You may also ask your SRT teacher for more information.
