GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 12, 2020
WE MISS YOU AND CAN NOT WAIT TO SEE YOU NEXT WEEK!!!
If you or someone you know is struggling, needing food, or needing additional help with school work, please let your counselor, SRT teacher, or an admin know so you/they can get the help needed!!!
Please note that you will need to be checking your e-mail several times a day as this is the best way for communication during these unprecedented times. It is the easiest way to keep up on new information and any changes.
WELCOME BACK! For those of you new to GHS, these announcements are e-mailed out daily to you. They contain valuable information that you need to know. Please take time to read them!
Books: If you have any books from last school year, please return those as soon as possible! This includes any books from your classes, teachers, or books from the Learning Commons (the old Media Center).
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.
REMINDER: Students are to wear their IDs at all times. You MUST have your ID to purchase a lunch in the cafeteria. If you forget your ID you can get one at the Welcome Center for $1. If you need a lanyard they are $1, or we can provide string for free.
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.
Goshen High School was awarded by the IHSAA for their Sportsmanship Award for the 2019-2020 school year! Out of 412 eligible high schools in Indiana, only 23 qualified for the extremely prestigious award!
Miso Japan Fine Dining on Pike St in Goshen is looking for smiling faces. Open positions: cashier and host, $11/hr for start. Apply walk in 2-4:15 pm daily.
Students, if you are having trouble with your school laptop, you are welcome to email your school computer support at GHS_TRC@goshenschools.org (Notice there is an underscore after GCS, that is not a blank space.) If you are having trouble with a lesson, please contact your teacher. Contact GHS_TRC@goshenschools.org for things like; it will not power on, the charger is not working, the screen does not work, a computer program will not open (like Chrome or Word), sound or mic not working, things like that.
- PLEASE try to do a full power off, wait at least a minute, then power back on, to see if that fixes the issue. That truly can fix a multitude of issues.
- Please include your full name and email address we can reply to.
- Please describe in detail the issue. Please don’t just say it does not work.
- If there is a pop up message what exactly does it say?
- If you can use the snipping tool to take screen shots of error messages that is very helpful. Just search for the word snip and you should find that.
School Counseling Info:
Welcome! We are glad to have you back in school! We understand that there might be questions about your schedule. Below, you will find instructions on how to access our office to correct your schedule or to check-in with your counselor.
- If you have a missing period or have been placed in the wrong class, please fill out this form:
- If you would like to check in with your counselor, look for a separate e-mail that will contain their Zoom link. There might be a bit of a wait but your counselor will get with you as soon as they can.
For all students interested in athletics next year, there has been a new ruling regarding physical exams. The IHSAA has decided that this year’s physical exams will not expire until the end of the 2020-2021 school year. You will still need to complete your code of conduct and the concussion/head injury forms, but you do NOT need a new physical exam if you had one this year. For those who did not submit a physical exam this year, you will need a new exam before you can participate in any activities. If a student has previously had a concussion, that student is required to have new pre-participation physical exam dated after April 1, 2020.
Any boy interested in playing football in the fall should contact Coach Kyle Park at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get added to the communication with the team over the next several weeks.
Any female student interested in trying out for Volleyball for the 2020-2021 school year please e-mail Ms. Meyer for workouts at email@example.com.
