REMINDER FROM THE CAFETERIA:  Starting in May, you will NOT be able to charge to your lunch account.

Seniors (and juniors graduating early):  Please see Mr. Kissinger during his lunch duty this Friday to go over the correct pronunciation of your names for the graduation register.  This will also be your opportunity to let him know if you do or do not want middle names or your full first name read.

Attention One Act Directors, Cast and Crew:  There is a VERY important brief meeting Monday at 3:45 p.m. in the auditorium.  Please plan to attend!

Prom tickets are on sale now during all lunches!  Sale dates are now through April 28th, May 2nd-5th and May 9th-12th.  Morning ticket sales will be on April 27th, May 4th and May 12th from 7:45-8:15 a.m.  Tickets are $40 each and will increase to $45 starting May 9th.

The GHS Color Guard will have tryouts and training sessions at GOSHEN MIDDLE SCHOOL starting May 2nd.  The practices will be from 4:00-6:00 p.m. every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for four weeks from May 2nd thru May 25th.  Meet by Door Y in the front circle.

Hey, GHS students and staff…..Do you want to show your RedHawk Pride?  Purchase a RedHawks bumper sticker!  They will be available in the commons area during all lunches this Thursday and Friday.  The stickers are weather-proof and removable and are available in three designs.  The cost is just $5 for a large sticker and $2 for a small one.  Proceeds will benefit Key Club and The Ultimate Frisbee Club.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Zak Keefer of the Indy Star wrote about NFL legend Peyton Manning and how he spent part of his off season every summer working on basic fundamentals with his brother Eli, under his former college quarterback coach.  Peyton was quoted as saying, “Don’t think you ever got it all figured out, because the little things matter. And if you ever think the little things don’t matter, and you can brush those aside, I promise you in whatever you are doing, your game’s going to slip.”  So the next time you spend a big part of your practice working on fundamentals, or your coach encourages you to do so in the off season, recognize the importance.  Manning did so for his entire career!

NOW HIRING:  Walmart is now hiring for the new Elkhart Rd. Super Center.  To apply go to apply at or come into the store to the hiring center and apply on the kiosk.  Make sure to note that you are applying for the Elkhart Rd. location.
