Classroom Highlights
2nd Grade
The Second Graders enjoyed sharing their “marshmallow" book reports with a friend and a cup of hot chocolate.
Music Class
The 3rd graders are learning how to play the recorder in music class! Their recorder concert will be on April 15th following 8:30am School Mass.
Don’t miss this opportunity to volunteer in the Good Shepherd lunchroom!

We understand between demanding work schedules, family responsibilities, household upkeep, errands and cooking for what feels like a small army, it may seem impossible to find the time to devote to being in another place at another time.  This opportunity is only from 11:15am to 1:00pm. 

You can be more involved at the place where your kids spend most of the day.  It also allows you to see them interact with their friends and teachers.  Your kids and their friends will love seeing you at school and the best part is, lunch is on us!  Please come in and give it a try and let us know if it will work for you. Contact Renee Bergo at to get set up. Thank you for your consideration.
