Dear Good Shepherd families,
We believe that teaching is as much a learning experience for the educator as it is for the student. Good teachers are lifelong learners, and professional development ensures that educators remain effective and continue to inspire their students. Teachers are so busy daily with the routines of the classroom, helping students, coordinating lunches, organizing assignments and troubleshooting technology. They rarely have the time to reflect on their teaching and students. This is what professional development days are for. On Monday, our preschool teachers were trained on a new communication and assessment program, which they had time to tinker with and trade ideas. Our K-5 teachers met to review report cards and align these with our curriculum. Our middle school teachers also looked at the report card structure/alignment and discussed student development topics.
Preschool Thanksgiving Camp!
Again, we just wanted to remind preschool families that we do have space available in our 3 day Thanksgiving camp. Camp will be held Monday Nov. 23- Wednesday Nov. 25 from 9-3. Pick up a registration form at the office or at the sign in table by your child’s classroom.
Finally we wanted to thank the Bedell family for donating a projector to our Kindergarten room so that the children can more easily be a part of our chapels on Zoom and other online events. We so appreciate your generous support. Our kindergarteners and their teachers are eternally grateful.
Don't forget Free Dress Day is the first Friday of every month! This month it's also Super Hero Day!!!
