Here at Good Shepherd we want to ensure that you have every possible resource at your fingertips to provide the peace of mind and organization you need to navigate through your day. To keep up to date with upcoming activities and events, visit our school calendar…it is downloadable and printable for your convenience in either a weekly (agenda view) or monthly (month view) format. To stay abreast of your child(ren)’s grades, log into Gradelink, where you are able to view assignments and keep track of their progress within the classroom. Parent Square, our parent/school communication platform, is a great tool to access posts, documents and photos in one, central spot. Make sure to download the free Parent Square app and set your account to receive texts in order to optimize the simplicity of receiving GS communications. Should you need assistance with anything, you may contact the school office.
Along with our communication resources, we encourage parents to visit/follow our social media accounts for small snippets of videos, pics and posts that might pique your interest. Our Facebook page is a great spot to see activities within the school (and individual classrooms) while Twitter gives a fun snapshot of school life here at GS.
We’d be amiss if we didn’t mention a rather large part of the parent experience at Good Shepherd….Parent Club! No initiation required, you’re in! Parent Club organizes the school’s extracurricular school functions and events. There are a variety of ways to get involved, so look for volunteer opportunities sent throughout the year. Participating is a great way to meet other families within and outside of your classroom(s), while helping our school community to be the vibrant, fun place that it is!
All in all, we hope you have the tools you need to take the guesswork out of managing your student(s) and their school life. Thank you for being a part of our Good Shepherd family, we are happy to have you here!
