Our unique aspects of the curriculum include:
A Christ-centered Education
2015-2016 School and Preschool registration is open! – Click here to view our Admission page
BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL CARE: Starting in the 2015-2016 school year, the School Board is pleased to announce that we will be offering a Before and After
School Care Program for Good Shepherd Lutheran School and Preschool students! More details will be given in the weeks to come; if you have any questions about this new program, please speak with a school board member or Pastor Maronde. DO YOU ENJOY WORKING WITH CHILDREN? Are you looking for some extra income? The Good Shepherd School Board is considering offering a before and/or after school program starting this Fall. In order to run such a program, one or two individuals are needed for before school and two individuals are needed after school. All helpers before or after school will be paid hourly employees of the school and will be responsible or supervising games, snack, and homework before school begins or before parents arrive to pick the child up. If you are at all interested, even for only a couple of days a week, speak with Matt Phillips, Linda Ahrens, or Pastor Maronde.
SCRIP Gift Cards S.O.S – Support our school by SHOPPING!!! With spring right around the corner, perhaps you are thinking about sprucing up your yard or your wardrobe. Come to the church library between services and pick up some gift cards for Earl May, Menards, Campbells, Dress Barn, Kohls and more. The difference between these gift cards and those you can purchase in other places is that the merchants will rebate a percentage of the face value of these cards to Good Shepherd Lutheran School. You still pay the face value to purchase them and Good Shepherd receives this bonus. What a deal! The ladies in the library (at the east end of the fellowship hall) will be glad to answer any questions you may have and check to see if the merchants you prefer are participating in this program. If you need an order form contact Jan Stehlik or find her in the church library between services on Sundays.
