Father Tom Cahill: Father Tom Cahill is an alumni to Good Shepherd Catholic School and came to our school last Thursday to share with us his missionary work in India. He runs an orphanage in India and we as a school have decided to help him by collecting money to help him purchase a fish tank. The tank will be 30ft x 30ft x 6ft tall. This is a large tank the orphanage will use to raise fish for food.

Safeguard the Children lesson:  Next week (Tuesday & Wednesday), the students will be receiving the yearly Teaching Touching Safety lessons. The Touching Safety program is a vehicle through which parents and teachers can give children and young people the tools they need to protect themselves from those who might harm them. Permission slips were sent home last week. These permission slips are to be signed and returned if you choose to opt out your child from receiving the lesson. If the permission slip is not turned in, your child will receive the lesson.  CORRECTION: PERMISSION SLIPS WILL NEED TO BE RETUNED.  PLEASE SPECIFY IF YOU DO OR DO NOT GIVE PERMISSION FOR YOUR CHILD TO RECEIVE THE LESSON.
