Last Day of School Attendance – Students, if you have plans to be gone for the last day of school, PLEASE make sure your parents have called in for you BEFORE THE DAY OF! There will be a lot to process and if you wait till the last minute, it may not get done on time. Thank you for your cooperation!

Congratulations to Felix Perez Diener on being elected to the Goshen City Council Youth Advisor position!!

Are you interested in seeing incredible theater, traveling to Canada, and making life-long memories while getting an English elective credit?  Consider joining the Stratford Experience!  We will have a short informational meeting right after school TOMORROW in room 3200.  If you have any questions about this English elective class and trip, please contact Ms. Shetler, Ms. O’Leary, or Mrs. Long for more information.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  According to an article in the Indianapolis Star, one of the top returning baseball teams in the state has had a disappointing regular season, but like all teams, hope to peak during the state tournament.  A quote by one of their three Division I pitching recruits explains why he thinks his team will be ready for the challenges ahead.  “It is good for us because it makes us accountable. When we lose, we see how it affects everybody in the community. It is good for us to have that leadership position in the community because you should be accountable for what you are doing.” (Wins and losses)  Win or lose, you are accountable for your performance, your attitude and your result.  Focusing on what you can and will do (rather than others) will keep you moving toward achieving your personal or team goals.

Spring senior student athletes should stop by the ticket booth in the commons for a thank you treat during lunch TOMORROW.

All books need to be turned in to the library as soon as possible.  Do you have questions?  Please stop in the library or email Mr. Collins, Mrs. Collins, or Mrs. Stringfellow.

Caps-to-Bench project:  Please keep donating your plastic caps/lids for the Caps-to-Bench recycle project.  To meet our goal and to get a bench we need about 60 more pounds.  They should be clean and be recycle numbers 2, 4, and 5.  You may turn them in to any teacher collecting them, or drop them off to Mrs. Swihart in room 2200.

Seniors should stop by and see Mr. Kissinger at lunches TOMORROW when he is on lunch duty or stop by the athletic office to go over the proper reading of your names on graduation day.  Please take time to help make sure your name is read correctly at graduation.

Merit and GHS PE summer school forms are now available in the guidance department.

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:  It’s that time of year again to get your lunch accounts paid off.  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!

Seniors & Juniors Who Are Graduating Early:  If you still need to order a cap and gown you can visit their web site at 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 ( 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.

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 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.

Please stop by the commons area (either by the cafeteria or outside the main office) during lunch if you are interested is speaking to the following:
