WE DID IT!
Charlie Spencer called Home and School secretary Kathie Haney this morning to tell her that the Good Shepherd Home and School Association has won the $500 Spencer Insurance Agency Sweepstakes! Thank you to everyone who voted and who rallied their family and friends to vote for GSC, too! We may be small in number, but our families are always BIG in spirit and support!

Congratulations to the winners of the Good Shepherd “Theme” Baskets raffled off at the St. John of the Cross Christmas Bazaar this afternoon! They are (according to the names on their ticket stubs): Baby Basket/Kathie Haney; Toddler Basket/Ratner Family; Story Time/Steph Knopf; Coffee & Tea/Gary Capriotti; Family Game Basket/Laurie Pickens; Movie Night/Kathie Haney; Children’s Bath/Seminara Family; Philly Sports/Danny Janoson; Arts & Crafts/Helen McParland; Everything Chocolate/Emily Garvey; Baking/Francine Schwartz; and Wine & Cheese/Rita Freiler.
Thank you to the GSC students, families, teachers (and anyone else!) who contributed the items (and monetary donations) for the baskets. The raffle raised over $850.00 (we will post a higher total once all the cash and checks are counted) for the school!
Special thanks to (Mrs.) Kitty Ratner, who coordinated the project for the Bazaar and the school; (Mrs.) Tracy Stovall, who beautifully arranged and wrapped the baskets; and the St. John’s Christmas Bazaar committee, headed by Bill and Jennifer Kugler.

We have our Christmas Shoppe hours posted on our “News and Events” page.
Our latest Facebook Sweepstakes challenge is sponsored by Spencer Insurance Agency on West Avenue in Jenkintown. They are going to award $500 to the parent-teacher group that receives the most online votes by tomorrow (Friday, December 6). Earlier this week, with four days left to vote, the Good Shepherd Home and School Association was in fourth place and just 13 votes shy of first-place!
You only can vote once, and everyone who votes will receive a chance at winning a $250 gift card, just in time for the holidays!
Here is a link to the contest information on the agency’s Website and this is a link to the voting page.
Also, some would-be voters seem to be having trouble voting when using a mobile device, so Charlie Spencer has posted a message on the agency’s Facebook page that anyone having trouble can email their vote (which would include your name, your phone number, and your selection of Good Shepherd Home and School) to him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for voting and for spreading the word!

Maybe it’s time to update your family’s portrait or to plan your photo Christmas card! The Good Shepherd Home and School Association is working with Maura Donofry-Viola and Quantum Fox Photography to provide any photo items you need this Fall or for the upcoming holiday season. We have scheduled four* photo session dates – two at St. John of the Cross (November 3 and 7*) and two at Good Shepherd Catholic (November 10 and 12) – for the convenience of our school and supporting parishes’ families. Home and School will receive 50 percent of the cost of all paid orders through this Family Photo Fundraiser!
Click here to see some actual samples and the Winter background the photographer is using for these pictures.
To schedule an appointment, click here (or on the image above)!
* Please note that as of Wednesday, November 6, we had to cancel our November 7 date at SJC.
