Peanut Butter and Jelly Drive

GSC students collected 480 jars of PB & J for our annual Peanut Butter and Jelly Drive run by our archdiocesan Nutritional Development Services.

What a success! The food collected will restock shelves of many food cupboards in the Philadelphia area.dsc_0424 dsc_0426 dsc_0427-copy dsc_0429-copy

Pumpkin Decorating Contest Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 24 -25

October 5, 2016 / Posted by in General

Area pumpkin patches are open for business, and so is Good Shepherd’s creative salute to the Fall Harvest!

Please bring your imaginatively-decorated pumpkin into school on Monday or Tuesday, October 24 -25.  Tables will be set up in the auditorium and you will receive an entry card to go along with your pumpkin.

We CANNOT accept any CARVED pumpkins.

GSC students will vote for their favorite pumpkins during the school day on Wednesday and Thursday, October 26 -27 by placing their “spare” change  into money containers. The money we collect in votes we again will donate to Camilla Hall,  the retirement and nursing home for the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. In the last 3 years we have raised over $3000.00

The three winning families will receive a $20 Barnes & Noble gift card.

Pumpkins must be taken home after school on Friday, October 28th, or after our Family Halloween Party that night.


GSC students observe the Holy Rosary during the month of October.
