Incorporated into the Good Shepherd School Seal are three words: knowledge, faith, and service. These are the three pillars upon which our school is built. Helping our students grow and develop in these three key areas continues to be the greatest part of our mission. The knowledge portion we see on a daily basis. Each day as parents, we ask our children, “What did you learn today?”. We check backpacks for returned assignments. We help our children with their homework and studies. Our educators strive to instill the knowledge in our students that they need to be prepared for all that is to come both in their schooling and future careers.

Students then enjoyed naming examples of each of the different types of matter that they experience in their daily lives.
As part of their Diary of Anne Frank unit, each eighth grade student was assigned a poem from a child who lived in Terezin. The students read the poem silently to themselves, looking for examples of hopes, dreams and/or fears in their child’s poem. In order to represent their child, each eighth grader created a handmade butterfly using construction paper and markers.
Knowing the difference between a cold and the flu can help speed up recovery. I appreciate your assistance and consideration of others during times when your student is not feeling well and may be contagious to others.
