Good Shepherd School


Dear Good Shepherd Family and Friends,

For the past 65 years, Good Shepherd School has celebrated the joy of learning through play.  Our outdoor space is where imaginations soar, friendships blossom, large motor muscles develop, social-emotional skills grow and young children flourish.  They learn to run with reckless abandon and climb with increased confidence as they explore their environment and learn about the world around them.  We are passionate about providing these opportunities for exploration and active engagement for all of our students.  

Our fundraising goal of $300,000 will ensure a full renovation of our playground space with the installation of state-of-the-art equipment, new level surfacing and so much more!  Thanks to the generosity of our Good Shepherd community through the 2022-23 Parents' Association events and three private donations, we are excited to announce that we are already halfway to our goal!

We hope you will consider supporting this important mission to promote accessibility, safety, and enhanced design features so all of our students can Dream Big, and Play BIGGER!  As always, we are so thankful for all you do for Good Shepherd School.

In Gratitude,

A playground committee of staff, teachers, and parents worked closely with All Recreation to design an outdoor space that will appeal to every child that Good Shepherd serves.  The new playground will include apparatuses and equipment for building large motor muscles through climbing and sliding as well as offer pieces that will encourage and promote brain development and imaginative play.  Special attention was given to integrating accessibility features such as transfer landings and a level play surface.  The play space will also include a large open area for running, playing games, and riding bikes.

"Play is often talked about as if it was a relief from serious learning, but for children, play IS serious learning. 

Play really is the work of childhood."
