Angel Tree


The Angel Tree program is a favorite holiday tradition at Good Shepherd! In the spirit of helping families that are less fortunate in our community - students, faculty and staff will be able to choose an ornament from our Angel Tree on “ADOPTION DAY”.
 

Students must have a SIGNED permission slip in order to “adopt” an ornament from the tree. The permission slip can be accessed in multiple ways:

  • For PDO, Early Childhood and Lower School: a printed copy will come home in RED FOLDERS on Monday, Nov. 7.
  • For Middle School: a digital copy will be posted to Schoology on Monday, Nov. 7, and a printed copy will be distributed in advisory.
  • CLICK HERE to print your own

Permission slips are DUE BACK to your teacher/advisor on or before Friday, Nov. 11.

Each class/advisory will visit the Angel Tree on Thursday, Nov. 17 to select an ornament representing one of our charity partners (see list below.) They will receive a packet with details for the charity they have chosen and the gift return date (Wednesday, Nov. 30.) Super Santa can be selected to fulfill additional gifts where needed.

Key representatives from GSES will host a Celebration of Giving on Tuesday, Dec. 6 with the charities to present our contributions. Parents do not need to attend this.

We are excited to continue this special holiday tradition at GSES and look forward to your support by helping those less fortunate experience the joy of Christmas through our gifting efforts!
