Members from the Peace Rive Wildlife Center brought in three very special guests to GSES on Monday, March 12th, including Luna screech owl, Bella the great horned owl, and Blossom the opossum. Thank you very much for arranging a wonderful presentation, Mrs. Kopp.
Darcy Hanley of the Punta Gorda Rotary Club visited Good Shepherd to present the Josh the Otter program this week. Josh the Otter is a water safety program for young children that emphasizes staying away from the water when adult supervision is not present and floating on one’s back if in trouble in the water. Good Shepherd and the Babcock Ranch Charter School are the two pilot programs in the area for the Josh the Otter program. Thanks to the Rotary Club for providing this vital training.
Congratulations to our 2017-2018 essay contest winners.
The Daughters of the American Revolution hosted this contest. Students wrote an essay, imagining that they were living in 1918 and telling a story about how World War I would have impacted their daily lives. Three out of the four winners in Charlotte County are GSES students!
