Be A Saint - Pray, Learn, & Love
Dear Good Shepherd families:
As we celebrate Thanksgiving and approach the Advent and Christmas seasons, I want to express my deep appreciation to our parents, students, teachers and staff. We have had 56 days of school that have been filled with many moments of prayer, learning, and love.
On behalf of every member of our faculty and school staff, it is my privilege to say THANK YOU to all parents and guardians, for entrusting your precious children to us every day. Your faith and trust in us is a gift as well as an honor we work to earn every single day. Thank you for choosing Good Shepherd School for your children. May our good and gracious God . . . Father, Son, and Holy Spirit . . . bless your family abundantly, now, at this time of Thanksgiving, and throughout the school year.
Have a blessed Thanksgiving holiday filled with family, friends and loved ones!
Mike McGinty, Principal

Classroom Highlights
The preschoolers and their dads' are making apple pies! They are peeling, cutting, mixing, filling, decorating with their initials and then boxing their pies!
2nd Grade
This past week the second graders dressed up as a character from a book that they read and did a report on. The second graders do a book report every other week. Some of the book reports are just that, an actual report and some are a bit more fun.
This Advent season, Good Shepherd Spirit Club will be collecting gifts for PRISM. There will be Angel Trees by the school office and in the church gathering space. We invite you to take an angel (or angels) from the tree. Click here for gift ideas and more information.
