CLASSROOM ENRICHMENT CURRICULUM
Good Shepherd Catholic School teaches Spanish as a second language for all students in PK3-8th grades as a part of the regular, weekly curriculum.
Along with our formal foreign language classes, Good Shepherd is proud of its multi-cultural community that boasts a number of students fluent in French, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin and more.
Along with a variety of extra-curricular activities which incorporate music, including musical theater and children’s choir, Good Shepherd also has music as a part of its regular, weekly curriculum. Students work on music theory, are educated on various aspects of music history and learn performance skills which are showcased at our Christmas and Spring concerts. Used as teaching tools are chimes, percussion instruments and recorders.
Students in grades PK-8th have formal P.E. every week led by our Physical Education/Wellness Teacher, Mr. Michael Lee. (Coach Lee) During P.E., students play sports, are led through exercises with proper warm-up/cool-down and are educated on nutrition to help their bodies function at optimal levels throughout the week.
Religion is a part of our daily curriculum and culture here at Good Shepherd. Every morning at assembly, children recite the morning offering and before lunchtime, grace before meals. Students participate in a half hour of religion class each day and, in grade 2, prepare with their class for First Holy Communion and Reconciliation.
Our parish is located on Santa Monica Blvd., in between Roxbury and Bedford. Students K-8th grades attend school masses every other Wednesday. On Sundays, the parish offers a Liturgy of the Word class during the 10:30am mass for PK- Grade 3 that many of our school families attend.
