GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR WEDNESDAY, MAY 18, 2016

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Graduation tickets can be picked up in the main office if you have not done so already. If you have graduation tickets that you will not be using please turn those in to the main office as soon as possible.

Extra Graduation Tickets:  We are running very low on extra tickets this year, so please check with friends first to see if maybe they have extra tickets that they will not use.  If you cannot find any from friends, e-mail Mrs. Stealy at fstealy@goshenschools.org and you will be put on a waiting list.

One Act Plays are this Thursday and Friday evening at 7:00 p.m. in the auditorium.  The cost is $5.00 per person.  Forty of your fellow students will be presenting one act plays for your entertainment pleasure.  It is the best show in town and you can’t beat the price!  Dutch Maid cookies will be available as well!

Those students interested in traveling to Stratford, Ontario, Canada to the Stratford Theater Festival next fall should see Ms. Neeb in room 3190 or their English teacher for information.  A $125 deposit is due by the end of the school year.  Students travel by chartered bus to Canada and stay in a European style hotel in the middle of the great village of Stratford.  We see four or five plays, participate in a stage combat lesson, tour backstage facilities and talk to actors after a performance.  This is a great price on a spectacular international trip offered to GHS students.  Sign up soon!

Marketing Mall is this Friday!  Please remember that you cannot take food from the commons area.  Sales will end 8 minutes prior to the end of each lunch.  Also, just a reminder that you only get ONE lunch period today, just like every other day.  Teachers, please do not allow students to leave class early for lunch.

AJP Brunk Corp. has summer jobs on all three shifts.  They are looking for people to do general factory labor, including driving a forklift and you must be able to lift 50 lbs.  They will train you to drive a forklift if you don’t have experience.  Pay is $12/hour and you will work 40 hours per week.  Contact Joe McPhilamy at 533-1109 ext. 35 if interested.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  The end of the school year is fast approaching.  It’s no time to slow down and relax.  In fact, it’s probably the most important time for the student-athlete.  Why?  It’s the final push to your academic year.  With summer close by, it is tempting to look ahead and forget how crucial your final exams and final grade point average become.  It should be your main area of concentration.  So make it a point to finish these last few weeks with the same enthusiasm you started the school year with.  Put a big emphasis on your final exams and your year-end grade point average!  Summer will be there waiting.

Seniors: The guidance office has received a $1,000 Student Assistance Award—Essay Contest.  Stop in to pick up eligibility requirements.

Crimsonaire auditions will be this week TODAY and Friday after school.  This is a show choir group that has a great time performing throughout the community and beyond.  You do not need to currently be in a choir to audition.  Auditions are open to all!  There is also a need for instrumentalists in our back up band.  If you are interested in playing in the back-up band talk to Ms. Yost in the choir office.  Sign up for an audition time in the choir room.  To audition, bring a solo to sing – we will have a piano accompanist available or you can sing with a track.  Plan now to audition for this fun opportunity to become a Crimsonaire!
