Join us in congratulating the Class of 2018 as they graduate on Wednesday, June 13th. They are ready to meet a bright future as they head off to various high schools. This class earned over $75,000 in scholarships. We are tremendously proud of all these young students, wishing them all the very best. May God Bless all of our students.
The 8th Grade Class Gift is one of the most special traditions at Good Shepherd Catholic. To honor their time together, the students of the Class of 2018 have donated a statue of the Good Shepherd for our garden in the front of the school. Thank you for your beautiful gift!
