Attention SENIORS:  Please stop by the guidance department and pick up forms to let us know what college you would like your final transcript sent to, and to fill out a form for any scholarships that you have received.

Attention Seniors: Goshen College will be here on Wednesday, May 2nd in Guidance from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.  This is the time for you to answers your questions regarding your enrollment process, scholarships or financial aid or any paperwork pending!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Sometimes off-season workouts can become boring and monotonous.  With summer approaching, have you given any thought as to how you will approach your training and conditioning while not being in school?  Call it the buddy system if you wish, but working out with a teammate, brother or sister, or an up and coming underclassman, makes the time go faster and the hard work seem easier.  So whether it’s heading to the gym for individual workouts, or out running for conditioning, or heading to the weight room for your weight training, try to find someone with similar goals to workout with you.  By finding that right person, you can hold each other accountable and reach your full potential while still having fun and trying to make each other better!

If you are a current junior, and have an interest in politics and our community, you should consider running for the Goshen City Council Youth Advisor position.  The election is open to any junior and will be held May 22nd at GHS.  If you have any questions please see Mr. Weldy in 2360 or talk to Jason Barahona.  All interested candidates can pick up an information packet from Mr. Weldy.

French Club:  Chicago Trip permission slips are due TODAY!  Please drop them off with M. Hobbs or Mlle Mack.

Attention:  It’s that time of year again to get your lunch accounts paid off.  Starting on May 9th, you will NOT be able to purchase any a la carte items if you have a negative balance on your lunch account.  Seniors:  You need to get your negative lunch balances paid by the end of the school year!

Prom tickets are now being sold for $45 each during lunches Tuesday-Friday through Friday, May 11th.  Merit students may purchase tickets at Merit.  Outside guest forms are available in the main office from Mrs. Wolfe.  If you have questions please email Ms. Poling at bpoling@goshenschools.org.

Seniors & Juniors Who Are Graduating Early:  If you still need to order a cap and gown you can visit their web site at www.highschool.herffjones.com to place an order or see Mrs. Gardner as she has some on hand.  You will need $60 cash to purchase one of these from Mrs. Gardner. If you only need a tassel, you will need $10 cash. Please have exact change. If you missed delivery day and still need to pick up your items, please stop by room 2290 and pick up your items from Mrs. Gardner.  If you have already graduated, are a Merit student or your parents are coming in to pick up your items it is easier if you e-mail Mrs. Gardner (rgardner@goshenschools.org) ahead of time so she can have your stuff waiting at the welcome center for you.

WORK PERMITS:  When you get a work permit EVERY box needs to be filled out on the Intent to Employ form before we will issue you the work permit.  Please bring completed forms to the main office in the morning and they will be completed by the end of the school day.

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 5:10 p.m. (5:20 p.m. on Tuesdays) if you need a ride home.  It will pick you up at the south end of circle drive by the flag pole.  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.

It is that time of year again for the annual GHS Prom Dress Drive!  The 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.

REMINDER:  YOU MUST BE STAYING AFTER SCHOOL FOR SOMETHING TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS – The GHS cafeteria is offering free after school snacks every day after school.  This program is for any student who is staying after school.  All student-athletes, club members, music participants, drama participants, after school homework help kids, etc. are strongly encouraged to stop by the cafeteria after school and take advantage of this generous opportunity.  Students just need to show their ID and they can grab a healthy snack to go that will hold them over during their after school activities until dinner.  The cafeteria will stay open until 3:55 p.m. to hand out the snacks.  All students picking up the healthy snack after school will need to eat their snack in the cafeteria.  We appreciate your cooperation with this adjustment that is mandated by the state of Indiana in order to continue this program.

If you are a student that leaves the building at any time during normal school hours then you must have a sticker on your ID if it’s for a class (PACT, Building Trades, EACC, Merit, shortened schedules, Red Zone, internship, yearbook, etc.) that indicates that or a blue pass from the office indicating that you have permission to leave.  Building Trades, EACC and Red Zone students are also required to sign out at the Welcome Center before leaving.

Online yearbook sales are set up!  All you have to do is go to www.yearbookordercenter.com and enter our school code (14723) to order your yearbook or yearbook ad.

Just a reminder that if you are coming to see Ms. Tovar you need to check in with the staff in the main office and fill out a request to see her.  She will send a white pass for you as she has time.  Please do not cut through the nurse’s office to get to her.  You need to enter through the main office.
