Buddy Program

Good Shepherd Catholic School is a preschool through eighth grade journey that believes children learn best when they are allowed to explore, ask questions, laugh and learn together. The Buddy Program allows are oldest and our youngest children to come together to share learning experiences. Eighth graders work with kindergarteners, seventh with first graders, sixth with second graders, fifth with third graders, and the fourth grade works with our preschool and prekindergarten students.

Buddies spend time together twice a month, reading stories, working on a community service projects, digging in the school garden, or sharing lunch together. The Buddy Program provides a valuable leadership opportunity for students in fourth through eighth grade, and positive role models for the younger students. The relationships forged in the Buddy Program last throughout the Good Shepherd journey.
