The pedestrian sidewalk has been removed from 9th Street and Logan. You can no longer cross the tracks there. If you need to cross the tracks, please take Washington to 8th Street and then cross over the Lincoln Ave. railroad tracks.  Goshen Police Dept. has had several reports of students disregarding the signs that are posted and crossing at 9th Street and Logan.  If you continue to cross there, you will be cited by the police department for trespassing on railroad property. This is a safety issue, as some students have almost been hit by passing trains. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.

All physical education and fitness classes at GHS will be swimming through Friday at the new aquatics facility on the Goshen Middle School campus. Students should be prepared to travel to GMS by arriving to class on time with proper swimming clothes.

Attention Wrestlers: We will have our end of the year meeting after school TODAY in room 6240, the fitness room classroom. All wrestlers are expected to attend. We will also clean out lockers so bring a bag. Those in a spring sport are still expected to attend.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: Have you ever been in a situation in the classroom or in a sport where you thought about giving up? What brought the situation about? Was the class too hard? In your sport, were you lacking playing time or not playing at all? Regardless of your circumstances, it can be frustrating when things look bleak. How can you change your approach to help your frustration? A quote I saw on a poster when recently entering a gymnasium says it best. “You are not finished when you lose. You are finished when you quit.” The next time you think about giving up, remember this quote. You might not always win, but by not quitting you will never lose!

Tickets for the spring musical “Mary Poppins” are now on sale in the choir office.  The tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students through high school age.  The seating is reserved so be sure to purchase your tickets with the people you plan to sit with at the show.  Show times are March 10th, 11th and 12th at 7:00 p.m. and matinees/afternoon shows on the 12th and 13th at 2:00 p.m.  Plan now to attend and watch this great show full of fun music!  You will also see some tremendous “flying” affects.  For further information contact the choir office.

On Thursday, there will be a parent and player meeting at 6:30 p.m. for all boys and girls track athletes. The general meeting will be in the cafeteria beginning at 6:30 p.m. with a break out session for each team immediately following. All student-athletes and one parent or guardian are expected to attend.

 

MEETINGS DURING SRT:

On Thursday, March 3rd there will be a final meeting during the 2nd session of SRT for those students interested in being on the Unified Track & field team as a student partner.  All students are welcome, but winter and fall student-athletes not in a spring sport are prime candidates for this since they already have all of their paperwork completed.
