Back to School Night:
Back to school night will be on Tuesday, September 6th, at 6:00pm. I will be discussing classroom procedures, expectations and answering any questions you may have. There will be ONE session from 6:05 – 6:30. If you have more than one child at Good Shepherd, you will have to choose which class to go to, and then meet the teacher of the other child afterwards. I will remain in the classroom to meet with parents who cannot attend the session. I hope everyone can make it!
