IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: Athletes are always faced with challenges. One of the toughest is to finish out a game, meet, or match that you have no chance to win. When you reach that point where you know it’s a loss, how do you react? Do you give up? Do you hang your head? Do you cop an attitude? How you finish those types of games says a lot about you. Do you still give 100%? Are you still positive with your teammates? Do you make up excuses? The next time you are involved in a sporting event and the time on the clock tells you it’s a loss, don’t let it reflect on your end of the game behavior. Handle it with class and move on immediately to your next challenge!
GHS will be hosting a Red Cross blood drive on Friday, November 20th. Sign-ups are happening now in social studies classes. See Mrs. Clark in room 2280 if you have questions.
The Goshen Public Library doesn’t just lend books! We also offer FREE activities for young adults. Stop in on Thursdays after school from 4:00-6:00 p.m. to hang out, study, find an independent reading book, play a board game, color or just chillax at the teen café! And, of course, we’ll also have hot chocolate and coffee. Looking for something to do on a Friday night? At Nerd’s Night Out this Friday, bring your friends for Game Night: Unplugged. We’ll have lots of board and card games to try, plus pizza! Then, Thursday, November 19th is our Pages & Popcorn Club from 5:30-8:00 p.m. We’ll talk about the crazy-popular final installation of the Hunger Games series, Mockingjay. We’ll watch Part I, eat snacks, talk about the book and you will have a chance to win tickets to see Part II! Finally, our regular programming will conclude this month with the Crafty Bandits on Monday, November 23rd from 4:00-6:00 p.m. where we’ll learn about modern art by making some cool coasters.
