Good Shepherd provides a welcoming community whose goal is to build strong working relationships among parents, teachers, and students. Numerous opportunities exist for parents and grandparents to be involved in the life of the school. Within the constraints of social distancing and health and safety guidelines, we welcome GSES families for classroom activities and events, as well as all-school chapels, assemblies, field trips, and other special occasions.
Additionally, the Good Shepherd School Community Association supports the school through fundraising, development, and community-building activities. festivals and events occur throughout the school year and provide an opportunity for everyone to get involved and grow together as a school family.
