Greetings Warrior Family and Friends,
You may have read in the Cincinnati Enquirer that the State of Ohio has released preliminary rankings of Ohio School Districts. We are proud to announce that based upon the Ohio Department of Education’s press release of preliminary rankings for this school year, Goshen’s Schools will be ranked as follows:
- Goshen Local School District will once again be rated “Excellent”.
- Goshen High School will be ranked “Excellent”.
- Goshen Middle School will be ranked “Excellent”.
- Spaulding Elementary will be ranked “Excellent with Distinction”.
Goshen’s record-setting achievement serves as recognition of the hard work of our students, families, community, and staff. We are so proud of our students!
Our students and staff strive to excel in all areas. While the classroom’s primary function is to support academics, our mission also focuses on educating the whole child. Goshen students should be well-rounded, caring, and contributing members of our community. We have had many examples of this recently. For example:
- The Goshen High School Marching Warriors earned a third place finish in band competitions at Wilmington and Kings.
- Brittany Clark, Sophomore at Goshen High School, won the Women’s SBAAC Conference cross country championship. Sophomore Courtney Turner placed third. Both girls have advanced to the regional competition.
- Goshen High School students and staff were recognized at the Southwest Region of the Ohio School Boards Association meeting several weeks ago for the “Wheels for Austin” program. GHS, teacher Karen Wilder, and principal Nick Inabnitt received a “Special Recognition” award on behalf of our school community. For those of you that may be unaware, GHS students, staff, and the entire school community raised over $30,000 to make a difference in the life of a special young man and get him a new wheelchair. Thank you for using your heart, educating their heart, and encouraging them to show caring for others.
- School Board President Sue Steele received the “Al Kettlewell” award for outstanding boardmanship.
- After our Men’s Soccer Team playoff loss to Wyoming High School, our warrior soccer players were commended for their class and “playing hard, clean soccer and were respectful to my players, myself, and the officials” as noted in an email from the opposing team addressed to Athletic Director Mark Slagle.
- Project MORE, a reading program providing support to at-risk students is staffed by 22 volunteer adults serving 29 children.
- The Just Read Progam, another volunteer-driven program, has 15 volunteer community members helping our students learn to read better.
We are proud of our students and our school community! Our students are excelling in all areas and we celebrate their accomplishments!
