November Spirit Day | Harvest on Vine Cereal Donation
The Good Shepherd School started their monthly spirit day kick-off by having the school dress in orange on Thursday, November 21st. To encourage the spirit of giving as the holidays approach the children and teachers each brought in a box of breakfast cereal to donate to Harvest on Vine. Tom McDonald from the organization came to speak to the school and collect all of the donations. We all had a good feeling in our hearts as we saw him take the overflowing boxes to be delivered to families in need. We are excited for our next spirit day in December where we will collect toys.
GRAY DOLPHINS VISIT THE FIRE STATION
On October 10th, the Gray Dolphin class visited the Fire Station. The Dolphins learned all about fire safety the week before and shared their knowledge about “Stop, Drop and Roll” with firefighters Derek and Pat. Each child got a turn to sit in the fire truck, and we saw how the hose gets attached to a fire hydrant. It was exciting to see what a firefighter looks like in his garb. Our visit to the Fire Station was a great success and a wonderful way to culminate our Fire Safety Week at Good Shepherd School.
On October 16th, the Good Shepherd School had their annual field trip to Belkin Family Lookout Farm in South Natick, MA. Many children were excited to experience riding on a school bus for the first time. The Manatee, Dolphin, Whale and Turtle classrooms all attended, and with the help from staff and family chaperones, the day was a great success. Our field trip included riding the train, picking different varieties of apples, snacking on freshly picked apples, and playing on the tremendous playground. It was a memorable experience for all, and we look forward to keeping this trip a school tradition each fall! Pictured are some students with their teacher, Miss Allison and director, Nicolette Clifford.
