Ms. Elizabeth Stapf's Bio »



Welcome to Sixth Grade!

On Friday, November 6th parents will have the ability to view their child’s progress report on MSP.  In an effort to “go green”  a hard copy will not be issued.  Please review the report with your child.  The trimester closes on 12/4, so there is ample time for improvement should it be needed.  Conference times should have come home on a green slip the week of October 26th.  Please make every effort to come at the time assigned as in most cases sessions were scheduled back to back.  If you have a conflict feel free to contact me.


Scholarship Opportunity

Thanks to the generosity of Mrs. Eileen Reddington, her family, and friends, a scholarship fund has been created in memory of her husband, Mr. Martin J. Reddington.  This scholarship will be awarded to two students in 6th or 7th grade who meet the criteria establish by Mrs. Reddington and her family and friends.  The students in 6th and 7th grade have received a paper copy of the criteria.  Below are the links to the information and community service form.  We are truly blessed.

In October, the sixth grade will be starting Spanish. Here is a message from the Spanish teacher.

¡Hola a todos!

My name is Mrs. Cristina Cimorelli and I will be the Spanish instructor for sixth grade!  I am so excited to join the Good Shepherd Catholic School!  I have been a Spanish teacher at Bishop McDevitt High School for the last six years and I have loved every minute!  I look forward to meeting the sixth grade class very soon.  I anticipate a year full of learning and, most importantly, fun!
